So, should everyone start taking vitamin D now even if it isn't clear whether it might help with Covid-19?

Dr Esther Freeman, from the International COVID-19 Dermatology Registry, the collaboration between the two research bodies, said: "It seems there is a certain sub-group of patients that, when they get COVID, they develop inflammation in their toes, which turns them red and swollen, and then they eventually turn purple".

"The cognitive function of the participants was not known pre-COVID, and the results also do not reflect long-term recovery - so any effects on cognition may be short term", said Joanna Wardlaw, a professor of applied neuroimaging at Edinburgh University.

Compared with traditional pre-clinical approaches, in which drugs are tested in cells from monkeys or from human cancer patients, these so-called organoids more faithfully mimic the complex cell types and structure of human tissues, according to Dr Shuibing Chen and Dr Robert Schwartz of Weill Cornell Medicine in NY.

Premier Francois Legault reiterated the importance of red-zone lockdown measures on Thursday when the province reported an additional 1,030 cases and 25 deaths related to COVID-19. Researchers discovered almost half of them had autoantibodies. It is now being tested in four different Covid-19 clinical trials.

From the review of studies, the researchers said the most common findings from the EEG were slowing or abnormal electrical discharge, mostly in the frontal lobe of the patients.

Those who recovered from COVID-19 and had severe symptoms showed "significant cognitive deficit", the researchers said. Both studies were presented at the American College of Gastroenterology virtual annual meeting.

In some folks affected by coronavirus, the virus might produce antibodies that assault the physique, not the virus itself, a brand new examine has discovered.

But experts said on Thursday that does not mean protection offered by coronavirus vaccines will be weak or short-lived.

This is despite them representing just 11% of the working age population. Also important are immune cells called T cells and B cells that stimulate antibody production.

"As we know, the brain is an organ that can not regenerate, so if you have any damage it will more than likely be permanent or you will not fully recover", Haneef said.

"Acquiring this collective immunity just by letting virus run through the population is not really an option", he told a United Nations briefing in Geneva.

Since the coronavirus emerged at the end of 2019, reports have flagged healthcare staff as being at greater risk of catching the infection and spreading it within their household.

The variant, which has not been found to be inherently more unsafe, was first identified among farm workers in the eastern Spanish regions of Aragon and Catalonia.

The study included 131 patients who met the World Health Organization (WHO) criteria for discontinuation of quarantine at least two weeks prior to the follow-up visit.

It is yet to be peer reviewed for publication in a scientific journal.

Elsewhere in the north of Scotland, there were no new infections in NHS Shetland, but one fresh case each in NHS Eileanan Siar and NHS Orkney, which saw their total rise to 69 and 33 respectively.

The scientists said the strain's characteristic mutation did not give it any apparent edge and its success may be down to the people who caught it first being particularly mobile and sociable.
