Mysterious inflammatory syndrome tied to COVID-19 strikes adults as well as kids

  Mysterious inflammatory syndrome tied to COVID-19 strikes adults as well as kids Like the syndrome in children, MIS-A is a severe illness that targets multiple organs and causes increased inflammation. Bacteria and viruses that are deadly to one type of creature can evolve quickly to infect another. While the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (which causes COVID-19) is the latest example, a host of infectious and deadly diseases have hopped from animals to humans and even from humans to animals.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is planning to shorten the recommended period of time Americans should quarantine for after potentially being exposed to the novel coronavirus.

Currently, the federal agency recommends that anyone who may have come into contact with a COVID-19 patients quarantine for 14 days.

However, officials are in the midst of finalizing new guidelines to reduce that period to between seven and 10 days, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Experts say they hope the updated recommendations encourage more people to observe the quarantine period rather than try to bypass it.

U.S. Centers for Disease Control Director Robert Redfield said Thursday that the agency doesn’t have “evidence-based data” of the effectiveness of the quarantine measures announced Wednesday by New York, Connecticut and New Jersey on travelers from states with high coronavirus infection rates.

'We do think that the work that we've done, and some of the studies we have and the modeling data that we have, shows that we can with testing shorten quarantines,' Dr Henry Walke, the CDC's incident manager for COVID-19 response, told The Journal.

If a swab test comes back negative 'then their probability of going on and developing an infection after that is pretty low.'

Health officials around the world chose 14 days due to the way viruses enters our cells and multiples.

Once a person becomes infected, there is normally many days before the virus makes enough copies of itself so that he or she develops sumptom.

Scientists discover new organ in the throat

  Scientists discover new organ in the throat A newly discovered set of salivary glands is nestled behind the nose.This nasopharynx region — behind the nose — was not thought to host anything but microscopic, diffuse, salivary glands; but the newly discovered set are about 1.5 inches (3.9 centimeters) in length on average. Because of their location over a piece of cartilage called the torus tubarius, the discoverers of these new glands have dubbed them the tubarial salivary glands. The glands probably lubricate and moisten the upper throat behind the nose and mouth, the researchers wrote online Sept. 23 in the journal Radiotherapy and Oncology.

The typical incubation period is about five days for COVID-19 with roughly 97 percent of people developing symptoms after 12 days.

Therefore, a 14-day quarantine is considered to a 'safety' threshold, that you are likely not contagious nor spreading to others.

People under quarantine are expected to stay home and not go to work or school, or take their children to school.

For groceries, one option is to have family or friends drop off supplies you need. Alternatively, you can use grocers or online retailers to deliver packages.

When it comes to garbage, people are asked to wait to take it out if possible.

However, many health experts have recommended a shorter period.

They believe some people may not attempt to quarantine due to the length of time and say a shorter quarantine is better than no quarantine at all.

Several countries in Europe such as Belgium, France, Germany and Spain have also been shortening their self-quarantine recommendations.

France shortened its period from 14 days to seven days while Spain, Belgium and Germany cut the time frame to 10 days.

The World Health Organization still recommends a 14-day quarantine, but officials are reviewing to see if they should shorten it, a spokeswoman told The Journal.

Walke says there is a possibility that some infections may be missed, especially as coronavirus cases continue to surge in the nation.

On Monday, the US recorded more than 169,190 COVID-19 infections and reached a record-high 85,836 hospitalizations.

However, he said that it's worth the risk.

'Hopefully, people would be better able to adhere to quarantine if it was, for example, seven to 10 days,' Walke told The Journal.
