coronavirus update: More than 38 thousand people have died due to the corona virus havoc worldwide. And more than 8 lakh people have been infected. About 1 lakh 72 thousand people have succeeded in preventing corona infection. Worldwide, efforts are being made to make a vaccine or medicine as a treatment to prevent corona infection. In such a situation, a new vaccine has been seen in a TB vaccine to curb Kovid-19. In investigating the effects of the corona virus in various countries, researchers found that the TB vaccine Bacillus Calumet-Guérin (BCG) could be a potential weapon to combat the virus.
Has been in use for a long time
According to the researchers, the BCG vaccine has been in widespread use for a long time. This vaccine, effective in the prevention of TB in children, has also been found to have a protective effect in the prevention of respiratory infections. According to researchers at the New York Institute of Technology in the US, “We found countries with a lack of these policies (Italy, the Netherlands and the US) to be the most affected by Corona compared to countries that have long adopted BCG policies.”
Covid-19 can also damage the heart
Based on a review of several studies, it has been found that the corona virus can also damage the heart. According to the researchers, it is known that viral diseases such as Kovid-19 can cause respiratory infections. As a result, lung damage can occur. This can lead to death. However, it is not known exactly what effect it has on the cardiovascular system.
Researcher Muhammad Majid of the US University of Texas Health Center said that it is possible that the corona virus could harm the heart muscle despite the absence of heart disease. The highest risk was found in heart patients.
Those above 65 years of age are more at risk
Researchers have found a higher risk of corona in people over 65 years of age battling heart disease or high blood pressure. Such people have been told to take special care.
