Rejects absurd research on 5G link to coronavirus
Earlier, the scientific portal pubmed published the results of the work of an international team of researchers, who argued that the fifth generation 5G mobile network forces human cells to create coronavirus. Already on July 24, this study was removed from the portal, because the scientific community was shocked by such statements. The authors of the pseudo-study did not conduct a single experiment that would prove their conclusions. They made all their statements only on the basis of long, confusing formulas and calculations, which, moreover, contradicted each other. Subsequently, it turned out that it was carried out by researchers from Guglielmo Marconi University in Italy, Central Michigan University in the United States and the First State Medical University in Russia. Read the details here.

Scientists have impregnated a reusable cloth mask with a special agent that neutralizes SARS-CoV-2. The effect lasts up to 50 washes. Such a remedy was created at the Institute of Molecular Medicine in Lisbon, writes Naked Science. The idea belongs to several companies: the textile manufacturer Adalberto, retail chains MO and Sonae Fashion and the CITEVE technology center, as well as two universities, the Institute of Molecular Medicine and Minyu State University.
The mask was named MOxATech and has already been certified by the French state agency Générale des Entreprises. They plan to sell it in the EU countries.

Breakthrough in the treatment of coronavirus: a drug that stops the development of complications
Synairgen offers a new type of COVID-19 therapy. Namely, the use of a protein called interferon beta, which the body produces when fighting a viral infection. Protein is artificially injected directly into the lungs of patients with coronavirus using a nebulizer as a stimulus for the body's immune response.
During a trial on 101 volunteers, it turned out that the drug reduced the likelihood of a patient having complications that require ventilation by 79%. Patients were two to three times more likely to feel better enough that the disease did not interfere with daily activities. During the testing of the therapy, the patients showed significant advantages of the method, they had a decrease in the feeling of suffocation. In addition, the average hospital stay for patients receiving the new drug was reduced by a third – from an average of nine to six days. Now conclusions regarding the effectiveness of the drug require peer review. But preliminary data is promising and could be a breakthrough in the treatment of coronavirus infection.
