The race to understand the impact of Covid-19 on the heart

A study of 100 Covid-19 patients found 78 suffered cardiovascular damage of one form or another linked to contracting and recovering from Covid

Cardiovascular diseases account for 36%  of deaths in Ireland. High blood pressure is experienced by one in four Irish men. All told around 10,000 people in Ireland die from heart disease every year

But that hasn't stopped scientists from growing actual human brains in a lab. Starting with nothing but stem cells, scientists in Austria this year managed to create brains equivalent to those in nine-week-old fetuses. These miniature brains are the size of peas and are incapable of thought—so far. The one thing keeping the brains from growing beyond this stage and becoming fully functional is that they have no blood supply.

 

The pandemic has prompted many people in Ireland to postpone out-patient cardiovascular appointments, but studies are emerging that show SARS-CoV-2 may have massive consequences on the coronary system itself.

“We know that patients with high blood pressure, obesity and heart disease are at increased risk of developing a severe Covid-19 illness in the case of infection with the virus. All three of these conditions have a high prevalence in Ireland compared with other countries,” says Prof Robert Byrne, director of cardiology at the Mater Private Hospital.

A screening of more than 5,000 people last year found 72 per cent of Irish men and 52 per cent of Irish women are overweight or obese, according to Layla Healthcare statistics.

Goldie Blox是一家玩具公司,使命是重新定义玩具商店中的“粉红走道”。在科学、技术、工程和数学(STEM)教育和职业领域,男性数量要大大多于女性,大部分女孩往往在八岁前就对这些领域失去了兴趣。Goldie Blox所设计的玩具则通过吸引女孩发展强大的口头及故事讲述能力的方式——同时仍提供机会来发展日后可转化成对工程学兴趣的技能——来鼓励和启发未来的工程师们。说到机会,一家玩具初创企业如何能在和一开始就统治着玩具行业的大公司的抗衡中脱颖而出呢?Goldie Blox走出了明智的一步:最近,该公司发布了一段视频,采用了Beastie Boys的歌曲《女孩们》(Girls)做背景音乐,该视频得到了病毒式传播。尽管这段视频最终被撤下,但Goldie Blox在提高公众对让更多女性和女孩对STEM产生兴趣——以及对Goldie Blox玩具——的认知上,做了一份相当不错的工作。

The Cleveland Clinic in Ohio is heading up an initiative called Covid-19 and its Cardiovascular Impact Rapid Response Grant, one of the biggest efforts of its kind under way.

“We do have a list of the projects, which span from basic to clinical. We are getting a website up soon that will have this information. Hopefully (we) will get an update in a couple of weeks,” says lead researcher Mina K Chung of the Cleveland Clinic.

Experts in pulmonary rehabilitation at the Hp2 Lab at the Grenoble Alps University in France suggest that for survivors of the virus, physical exercises such as walking are essential to regaining muscle tissue – including those in the coronary system – lost due to being horizontal for a long period.

In one example, Christie’s was offering the mid-18th-century canvas “Rebecca and Eliezer at the Well” by the Venetian artist Francesco Fontebasso at a low estimate of 120,000. The pleasant piece of rococo decoration had been bought at auction in 1990 for $286,000, according to Artnet. At the Dec. 8 sale it fell to a single telephone bid of 115,000, about $170,000, before fees. Investors do not expect to incur a loss of about 40 percent a quarter century after buying a Warhol or a Basquiat.
