Methods: 146 LHTD completed an online survey to collect data on their experiences with COVID-19. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics, and thematic analysis for open-ended responses. Results: LHTD were aged from 11 to 79 years (mean age 48.1 ± 11.8); 82.2% were men. Almost half of the sample were not concerned about COVID-19. Those not concerned were significantly less likely to employ health and safety practices (e.g. wearing masks, social distancing), and were less educated and healthier. They also perceived COVID-19 to not be real or a serious threat to their health. Conclusions: Tailored education approaches are needed to provide evidence-based data on COVID-19 risks and complication.

COVID-19致死率の国による差を説明する論文が報告された。2つの遺伝的変異のいずれかの保因者がハイリスクの可能性。

テルアビブ大学の研究者らによると、遺伝子変異PiZまたはPiSの保因者は、重度の病気や COVID-19 による死亡のリスクが高いことを示唆している。 これらの変異は、重度の感染症の場合に肺組織を損傷から保護するα1-アンチトリプシンタンパク質の欠損に繋がっているという。他の研究では、このタンパク質の欠乏が他の疾患の肺機能への炎症性損傷と関連していることがすでに知られている。 この研究は、テルアビブ大学サックラー医学部のDavid Gurwitz教授、Noam Shomron教授および修士課程候補のGuy…
