People with allergic conditions such as hay fever, eczema, and rhinitis may be at a lower risk of catching COVID-19, according to a new study. A team of 34 British scientists found allergy sufferers who also have asthma were less likely to contract the potentially deadly virus.
COVID-19 safety measures typically focus on the particles coming from a person’s mouth or nose. Now, a new study warns that the virus can also infect the inner ear. Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) say this can trigger hearing problems and even balance issues for COVID patients.
