Researchers assessed the number of hospital admissions for noncommunicable diseases (abnormal tissue growths, metabolic diseases, cardiovascular diseases and musculoskeletal diseases) in São Paulo, Brazil, between January and June last year compared with the corresponding periods in the previous three years.
The objectives of this study were to examine the characteristics and outcomes among adults hospitalized with COVID-19 at U.S. medical centers and analyze changes in mortality over the initial six months of the pandemic.

* The study has shown that patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus with lower blood zinc levels require a longer recovery time and are at higher risk of death. Mortality in this patient group was 21% compared to 5% of those with higher levels of zinc in the blood. The study has also carried out in vitro tests which demonstrated the protective effect of this element by limiting the spread of the coronavirus in human cells.
Researchers evaluated the feasibility and acceptability of using a mobile robotic system to perform health care tasks such as acquiring vital signs, obtaining nasal or oral swabs and facilitating contactless triage interviews of patients with potential COVID-19 in the emergency department.
A review of nearly 28,000 emergency department records shows less than 2% of patients diagnosed with COVID-19 suffered an ischemic stroke but those who did had an increased risk of requiring long-term care after hospital discharge.

Genomic surveillance - using information about genetic differences between virus samples - can help identify how SARS-CoV-2 spreads in care home settings, whose residents are at particular risk, according to new research.
Whether alcohol withdrawal rates among hospitalized patients with alcohol use disorder increased during the COVID-19 pandemic was examined in this study.
