  • "A successful vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 could be used to prevent infection, disease and death in the whole population, with high-risk populations such as hospital workers and older adults prioritised to receive vaccination."  telegraph.co.uk

  • "Airborne SARS-CoV-2 may come from either the patient's breath or from the virus-laden aerosol from patient's faeces or urine during use," the study, published in the scientific research journal Nature in April, reported. telegraph.co.uk

  • "It uses a common cold virus (adenovirus) that infects chimpanzees, which has been weakened so that it can’t cause any disease in humans, and is genetically modified to code for the spike protein of the human SARS-CoV-2 virus.  telegraph.co.uk

  • "This means that, when the adenovirus enters vaccinated people's cells, it also delivers the spike protein genetic code. This causes these people's cells to produce the spike protein and helps teach the immune system to recognise the SARS-CoV-2 virus."  telegraph.co.uk

  • "This striking finding raises the intriguing possibility of an immunological cross-reactivity between dengue's Flavivirus serotypes and SARS-CoV-2," the study said, referring to dengue virus antibodies and the novel coronavirus. telegraph.co.uk

  • "Three of the four Chinese candidates use inactivated Sars-CoV-2 virus which ultimately may prove to be the best bet," said Dr Vipul Chowdhary, technical lead at leading biomedical think tank Policy Cures Research. telegraph.co.uk

  • "When we adjusted for other variables such as social distancing practices, a lot of those simple associations went away, which provides evidence that social distancing is an effective measure for reducing SARS-CoV-2 transmission," Clipman says. sciencedaily.com

  • "Whilst SARS-CoV-2 can cause mild disease in children, the data available to date suggests that children have not played a substantive role in the intra-household transmission of SARS-CoV-2," said the authors. telegraph.co.uk

  • According to a study published this month in Environmental International, traces of the SARS-CoV-2 virus were discovered on the sink, taps and shower handle of an empty apartment in Guangzhou in February. telegraph.co.uk

  • As well as continuing to test our vaccine in phase-three trials, we need to learn more about the virus - for example, we still do not know how strong an immune response we need to provoke to effectively protect against Sars-Cov-2 infection. theguardian.com

  • At that point, fewer than 60 cases had been found. But now the virus, since given the name SARS-CoV-2, has spread to 185 countries, infecting more than 28.7 million people with the disease Covid-19 and killing more than 910,000. telegraph.co.uk

  • But one case study from Japan reported traces of the virus in the cerebrospinal fluid of a Covid-19 patient who developed meningitis and encephalitis. This suggests that Sars-Cov-2 may be able to penetrate the central nervous system. telegraph.co.uk

  • Compared to control group (given a meningitis vaccine), SARS-CoV-2 vaccine caused minor side effects more frequently, but some of these could be reduced by taking paracetamol. There were no serious adverse events from the vaccine theguardian.com
