The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is continually monitoring how authorized and approved treatments for COVID-19 are affected by changing variants
A resurgence of Covid cases is under way across the UK, with infections in the over-70s at a record high and school leaders fearing that preparations

COVID-19 can cause the brain to shrink and damage areas linked to memory and smell, says a new study by Oxford University that was published in the Nature journal
People suffering from COVID-19 could have several different SARS-CoV-2 variants hidden away from the immune system in different parts of the body, finds new research published in Nature Communications by an international research team. The study’s authors say that this may make complete clearance of the virus from the body of an infected person, by their own antibodies, or by therapeutic antibody treatments, much more difficult.
Halo CTO Professor Christiane Schaffitzel discovered the SARS-CoV-2 Achilles’ heel targeted by Halo’s safe, self-administered antiviral treatments and prophylactics
A future variant of Covid-19 could be much more dangerous and cause far higher numbers of deaths and cases of serious illness than Omicron, leading UK scientists have warned.
However, the number of deaths remains well below levels in previous waves of the virus.
Nature Communications: Halo scientists publish essential new insights into how multiple SARS-CoV-2 variants evolve in patients.
As the global burden of SARS-CoV-2 infections escalates, so does the evolution of viral variants with increased transmissibility and pathology. In addition to this entrenched diversity, RNA viruses can also display genetic diversity within single infected hosts with co-existing viral variants evolving differently in distinct cell types.
