The researchers suggest that COVID-19 infections and deaths were higher when indoor relative humidity levels were outside a 40% to 60% range.
The researchers suggested that the mechanisms for controlling airflow into and out of biocontainment facilities can be “tricked” into functioning improperly by sound at a specific frequency — possibly placed within a popular song.
According to the researchers, an ingredient found in coffee hinders the interaction between the SARS CoV-2 spike protein of the coronavirus and the ACE-2 receptor.
Medical robots are engineered to work in tandem with doctors and provide support during various surgical and diagnostic procedures.
Routine battery replacement surgeries might be avoided with technology that uses the patient’s own breathing movements to charge the implant.
The soft, fur-covered robot dubbed Reliebo attaches to the wearer’s hand and features small air sacs that inflate in response to hand movements.
The researchers are eyeing future applications wherein the technology could be wall- or ceiling-mounted in schools and hospitals and offer alerts to occupants instantly when COVID-19 is detected in the atmosphere.
To develop the CBD-based bioplastic material, researchers performed a condensation reaction using adipoyl chloride and either CBD or the similar cannabigerol (CBG), to produce a polyester.
