The novel coronavirus’ spike protein plays additional key role in illness. Salk researchers and collaborators show how the protein damages cells, confirming COVID-19 as a primarily vascular disease.

LA JOLLA—Scientists have known for a while that SARS-CoV-2’s distinctive “spike” proteins help the virus infect its host by latching on to healthy cells. Now, a major new study shows that they also play a key role in the disease itself.

The paper, published on April 30, 2021, in Circulation Research, also shows conclusively that COVID-19 is a vascular disease, demonstrating exactly how the SARS-CoV-2 virus damages and attacks the vascular system on a cellular level. The findings help explain COVID-19’s wide variety of seemingly unconnected complications, and could open the door for new research into more effective therapies.

“A lot of people think of it as a respiratory disease, but it’s really a vascular disease,” says Assistant Research Professor Uri Manor, who is co-senior author of the study. “That could explain why some people have strokes, and why some people have issues in other parts of the body. The commonality between them is that they all have vascular underpinnings.”

Not sure posted before or not.....Covid is now officially airborne like measles.

[link to www.indiatimes.com (secure)]

Evidence of long-range transmissions
In another piece of evidence, they've stated examples of long-range transmission of SARS CoV-2, where individuals from adjacent rooms who haven’t spoken to or come in contact with each other have taken place and have been documented in quarantine hotels.

COVID-19 has stayed infectious in the air for three hours
Researchers have also stated that SARS CoV-2 has been detected in the air in lab experiments and it has managed to stay infectious in the air for up to 3 hours. They have also rejected the argument where researchers have claimed that SARS CoV-2 wasn’t cultivated from the air, arguing that measles and TB (tuberculosis) which are airborne diseases also haven’t been cultivated from room air.

Presence of SARS CoV-2 In areas where only aerosols can reach
Researchers claim how SARS CoV-2 was found to be present in air filters and building ducts of hospitals of COVID-19 patients -- areas where only aerosols can reach. In another study, they show how infected caged animals who were connected to separately caged uninfected animals via an air duct caused the transmission of SARS CoV-2 -- another transmission with only aerosols as the logical explanation.

The cricket might be canned in India after all. Covid bubbles breached. Players test positive.

It's understood one of the infected players recently went to hospital after suffering a stomach complaint, which is believed to be the likely time of infection.

The player isolated upon his return to the IPL bubble and returned a negative test but, 12 hours later, he and his teammate both returned a positive test.

There are other theories aswell one to do with autoantibodies and another that infection leads to reduced energy production in organs.

Boris Johnson says there is a 'good chance' social distancing can be scrapped next month

"I think we've got a good chance, a good chance, of being able to dispense with one-metre plus," the prime minister says.

"Ahead of Step 4 [21 June], as more is understood about the impact of vaccines on transmission and a far greater proportion of the population has been vaccinated, the government will complete a review of social distancing measures and other long-term measures that have been put in place to limit transmission.

Ok, except you can't truly understand the impact of vaccines on transmission bassed on a short period of a few months. Good luck.
