Daily Covid-19 Minute: Low-Dose AspirinWe’ve known low-dose aspirin can reduce the risk of having a stroke or heart attack but now we’re learning it might also reduce your chance of getting severely sick or even dying from Covid-19. Because the disease has been associated with higher risks of blood clots, researchers at George Washington University were interested in low-dose aspirin for covid. Aspirin, of course, is a known blood thinner. It turns out hospitalized covid patients on low-dose aspirin had several desirable outcomes: - 44 percent less likely to be put on a ventilator - 43 percent less likely to be admitted to the ICU - And 47 percent less likely to die in the hospital There were also no differences in bleeding events between people on aspirin and those who were not. Because the study was small, and it wasn’t the gold standard randomized controlled trial, we need to be careful when interpreting this data. However, aspirin is widely available, cheap, and relatively safe so it could be a game-changer in our management of covid patients.

Daily Covid-19 Minute: CDC School GuidanceThe CDC has issued new guidance on classroom social distancing stating three feet of distance between students is sufficient assuming other safety measures are in place. This is the distance the “World Health Organization” has advised since the start of the pandemic. The CDC examined data from 3 different studies to reach this decision. The first study is from Florida and looked at covid transmission in schools last year and found only 1% of registered students contracted Covid-19 while at school. The second study, from Utah, also found there was low covid transmission among students, even though the average distance between them in the classroom was 3 feet. Finally, a third study from Missouri found only 27% of schools were able to space desks 6 feet apart, but the incidence of covid spread there was incredibly low. The shortened distance of three feet only works if other measures such as wearing a mask and improving ventilation are in place. Allowing students to be closer together in the classroom means more schools can open which is critical for our children.

Daily Covid-19 Minute: Moderna BoosterVaccine manufacturers have been working to increase efficacy against the new covid variants emerging across the globe including Moderna, who has just announced the start of a new trial to test a “booster” shot of their MRNA vaccine. This extra shot given after the initial doses of a vaccine specifically targets the South African variant of covid to “boost” your immune response and give you protection against that strain. A previous study found the South African strain decreased the Moderna’s vaccine six-fold in the amount of neutralizing antibodies produced. While this was still above the threshold for protection it makes the vaccine much less effective. The new study will include 60 participants and if the results are positive, the booster could get emergency use authorization from the FDA soon after.

Daily Covid-19 Minute: Largest Antibody StudyA major challenge of the pandemic has been determining how many people have been infected with Covid-19. Along with having a shortage of tests for many months, a lot of patients are asymptomatic, meaning they never knew they had the virus. However, thanks to a new study we’re getting a clear sense of how far reaching the virus has been. Researchers at Emory University conducted a national antibody study which was the largest of its kind. Their findings suggest, by the end of October 2020, over 39 million people, or one in eight Americans, had been infected with covid. By comparison, we were officially reporting just over 9 million infections at the end of October, a drastically lower estimation. Reaching herd immunity is critical to stopping the spread of Covid-19. That means around 80% of the population needs to have either been vaccinated fully or infected with the virus. This study suggests we might be closer to that point than we originally thought.
