Good news: More than 250,000 people of Coronavirus recover
Top news (12.47 PM): According to the calculations of the prestigious Johns Hopkins University in the United States are now in the world, at least more than 250,000 people (exactly 252.391) from the Coronavirus recovered. This number is in proportion to a total of more than 1.21 million people tested and more than 65,000 dead. The University in the US state of Baltimore collects in the world of the Ill person’s data and presents them in a real-time map. The scientists are, of course, dependent on the official data in the countries. In the same way as the dark figure of those Infected is significantly above the 1.2 million are expected to be, is likely to be the number of Healed people is far greater, since many people without symptoms of disease or healing to be noticed.
Way out of the Lockdown: Italy thinks about Healed than to be first out again
Top news (10.53 PM): As in Germany, in Italy, currently being discussed on how to get to the corona-crisis measures taken to reverse the power, without further pandemic wave trigger.
An idea: people have developed in the context of a past disease anti-body against the Virus, should be the first to back out. This suggestion comes for example from the head of government of the Veneto Region, of a "Pass" for Convalescent into the game. The Prime Minister, Conte had already made mind games to the public, according to Heal as the first return to work is likely to go.
In the course of an infection, the body develops two different antibodies: The first occurs in the first days of infection and disappears after about twenty days. The second antibody arises as soon as the first begins to dissolve. The existence of the second antibody could indicate an immunity to the Virus, hope researchers.
Is not backed up, however, is that This is partly due to the fact that there are only a Coronavirus, but many. The Problem is in the detection of antibodies to Sars-CoV-2, according to Matthias Orth, a Board member of the professional Association of German laboratory physicians (BDL), that there may be a so-called cross-reaction. There are detected antibodies against corona virus, but it remains unclear against what a Virus is exactly.
Still unknown is at the moment also, how long antibodies against Sars-CoV-2 in the blood are detectable and how long you are in front of a new disease as quickly as possible. Nevertheless, studies using the detection of antibodies, hence, be logically very important, says Orth.
So would be conceivable, for example, to take a sample of the Population in a month, and then again in another month. If you assume that it was at the moment, is primarily an infection with the novel Coronavirus, it could be a picture of the "Durchseuchung" get.
