Corona-Schnelltest-Ranking
Which rapid coronavirus test can I trust? More precisely: How well does my test detect a high, medium and low viral load equally reliably? All three criteria together result in the "overall sensitivity", i.e. the average detection rate - it determines the order in the ranking. For example, 90 percent means that 9 out of 10 positive samples are correctly detected. Simply enter the name of the test (preferably the manufacturer's name) in the search field.

Occupational differences in the prevalence and severity of long-COVID: analysis of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Survey
Occupational differences in the prevalence and severity of long-COVID: analysis of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Survey

This is the first study to examine how prevalence of long-COVID and its impacts on functional capacity differ by industry and occupational groups.

Prevalence of self-reported long-COVID increased with time across all exposure groups and mostly followed SARS-CoV-2 infection trends; with the exception of professional occupations (eg, healthcare, education, scientific occupations) that demonstrated notable differences in the direction of odds of long-covid when compared with odds of SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Those working in teaching and education, and social care industries showed the highest likelihood of having long-COVID symptoms. The exact same pattern was observed when analysis was performed using occupational groups. When we used Standard Occupational Classification groups, the likelihood was higher in Caring, leisure and other services.

2021-05-22 Why Omicron Is About To Make Americans Act Immorally, Inappropriately
A friend called me for medical advice two weeks ago. He鈥檚 single, in his thirties and generally healthy, but he鈥檇 developed a dry cough with mild congestion. After a self-administered Covid-19 test turned up negative results, he remained suspicious he could be infected. He was set to fly west in a couple of days for a conference and dreaded the thought of infecting other passengers. I recommended a PCR test if he wanted to be more certain. When the lab results came back positive, he spent the next five days at home alone (per CDC guidance). If you were in his shoes, chances are you, too, would make a reasonable effort to avoid infecting others. In the near future, that won鈥檛 be the case. Americans are playing it safe鈥攆or now PROMOTED A whopping 91% of Americans no longer consider Covid-19 a 鈥渟erious crisis.鈥 Social distancing has reached a low point as public-health restrictions continue to ease up. Yet, there鈥檚 still one aspect of the pandemic Americans are taking very seriously. As a society, we still expect people who test positive for Covid-19 to stay home and minimize contact with others. As a result of these expectations, 4 in 10 workers (including 6 in 10 low-income employees) have missed work in 2022. Overall, the nation鈥檚 No. 1 concern related to Omicron is 鈥渟preading the virus to people who are at higher risk of serious illness.鈥 MORE FROMFORBES ADVISORBest Travel Insurance CompaniesByAmy DaniseEditorBest Covid-19 Travel Insurance PlansByAmy DaniseEditor Most Americans are eager to move on from the pandemic, but those who are sick continue to avoid actions that may potentially spread the virus.

2023-11-28 Life expectancy for Canadians fell in 2022 for third year in a row, says StatCan

COVID-19 became the third-leading cause of death for Canadians last year, overtaking accidents and unintentional injuries for the first time since the disease emerged in 2020.

鈥淭his increase may in part be due to the exposure to new highly transmissible COVID-19 variants and the gradual return to normalcy,鈥 the report said, pointing to reduced restrictions and the elimination of masking requirements.
