Chris Cuomo Is Still Fighting Lingering COVID-19 Effects
A new study also suggests that once you get COVID-19, you can get it again, because in some instances the antibodies that fight off the virus appear to rapidly diminish after just a few weeks. CNN's Chris Cuomo has revealed he's still suffering from the lingering effects of COVID-19 more than three months after he was first stricken. "I've got brain fog that won't go away," Cuomo said. Cuomo's guest, Lauren Mandel, said she and her family still haven't gotten over the virus.
New Jersey resident Melanie Montano is still suffering from COVID-19 symptoms 100 days after her diagnosis. Montano has been documenting her harrowing journey since March. She finally tested negative for coronavirus last month, but the symptoms, including sweating and fevers, have lingered on. She was also just diagnosed with pneumonia and still has no sense of smell or taste. To prove it, she volunteered to do a hot sauce taste test. "I don't taste anything," Montano said. Britain, the United States and Canada accused Russia of trying to steal information from researchers seeking a COVID-19 vaccine.
The three nations alleged that hacking group APT29, also known as Cozy Bear and said to be part of the Russian intelligence service, is attacking academic and pharmaceutical research institutions involved in coronavirus vaccine development. A third of care home residents haven't been tested for COVID-19, despite government promises that all residents and staff would be tested by "early June".
New research from The Data Analysis Bureau suggests that while testing has risen in the last month, many residents are still missing out.
In May, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said "every resident and every member of staff in our elderly care homes in England" would be tested "between now and early June". A Canadian neuroscientist is heading a global study to explore the lasting impacts of COVID-19 on the brain. The COVID-19 Brain Study looks to recruit 50,000 individuals who received a confirmed positive diagnosis of the virus in order to answer pressing questions about the disease's direct and indirect effects on the brain.
