    Mask Controversy; Vaccine Update for COVID-19

    In our 78th COVID-19 update video, Dr. Seheult walks through updated case numbers in the United States, Brazil, India, and Australia, among other countries. He also addresses the recent conversation on wearing face masks and face coverings, citing this article from the New England Journal of Medicine. Interestingly, the CDC and WHO are currently offering different guidelines on masks. Lastly, Dr. Seheult shares information on this COVID-19 vaccine tracker website from RAPS (Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society), which provides an easy-to-read chart on the current status of various vaccine trials. 

     

    5 Vaccines to Keep An Eye On

    Our 79th pandemic update focuses on five COVID-19 vaccines that show the most promise in becoming available by early 2021. Dr. Seheult describes these vaccines, which work in different ways, from RNA to epitopes and antigens. The vaccine from Moderna is receiving the most media attention, as conversations around the ethics of allowing researchers to test it on humans without first testing it on animals (as typical safety procedures require) arise. 

     

    Data Questions & Journal Retractions

    Our 80th coronavirus pandemic update brings with it some big news involving data collection and article retractions from major scientific journals. One of these articles — originally posted in the Lancet, and since retracted — was called into question due to investigations into Surgisphere, the database company behind the study and founded by one of the study’s researchers. Surgisphere denied the researchers’ requests for a third-party audit of the data, resulting in the researchers themselves calling for the article’s retraction. This article from The Guardian provides details on the Surgisphere investigation. In addition, this article from STAT has more information on the other retracted articles, including this one from the New England Journal of Medicine

      Dr. Seheult- has anyone considered the caustic effect COVID-19 may be doing to the vascular system of the brain. It and/or the quarantine may be adding to this mass psychoses, chaos and hostility currently going on worldwide. Anyone considering that possibility?
