It will still be many months before we see the back of Covid-19, but as various vaccines start to come onstream there is light at the end of the tunnel. Yet even as the beginning of the end of the pandemic looms, research from around the world is beginning to pose unsettling questions about where and when it all began and, in the process, offering clues to how the world might better defend itself against...

If the news of the new mutant strain of the SARS-CoV-2 virus spreading “like wildfire” in the UK, and the associated sound of borders around the world slamming shut is keeping you awake, you probably shouldn’t visit the website of the Nextstrain project. Viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 mutate all the time – not deliberately or even cunningly, as some apocalyptic recent coverage seems to imply, but as an inevitable accidental byproduct of the often error-strewn process...

This story by Tim Hornyak was originally published on Eos as part of Covering Climate Now, a global journalism collaboration of more than 400 news outlets committed to better coverage of the climate crisis.  Indonesians say being prepared for climate-related disasters helped blunt the impact of the coronavirus pandemic – and that lessons in resilience may mitigate the effects of climate crises in the future. The coronavirus pandemic presents different challenges in different countries, but...

As a teacher, researcher and scientist, I have often reminded my students to let the facts speak for  themselves. When it comes to the psychological effects of online distance learning on our children, the data,is sobering.  But no parent needs data to know that six months of being forced to learn from screens has done serious damage to our children.  Lest you label me a ‘Covid-denier’, let me assure you know that I am all...

Agoraphobia (ag-uh-ruh-FOE-be-uh) is a type of anxiety disorder in which you fear and avoid places or situations that might cause you to panic and make you feel trapped, helpless or embarrassed. You fear an actual or anticipated situation, such as using public transportation, being in open or enclosed spaces, standing in line, or being in a crowd. As we are slowly seeing the effects of Covid-19 on mental health and wellbeing, experts are anticipating that...

With preventative measures against Covid-19 at the front of everyone’s mind, it’s easy to forget there are other common illness around that the body can be sensitive to, such as flu. The UAE government has advised its residents to vaccinate against the threat of seasonal influenza over the next few winter months and whilst a flu vaccine won’t protect against the current pandemic, experts believe it can boost immunity against diseases that weaken the lungs...

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues — far longer than many people could have anticipated — rates of depression are rising globally and regionally.  In one UK study in June, almost one in five people (19.2 percent) said they were suffering from depression, almost double the 9.7 percent found in March.  These findings are consistent with the increase in patients experiencing anxiety and depression witnessed at the Priory Wellbeing Centre in Dubai following the coronavirus outbreak. ...
