Within this framework, “Masrawy” provides a daily service that includes displaying everything you want to know about the latest developments in the emerging corona virus, from the emergence of new symptoms or the occurrence of a different mutation, as well as the development of vaccines and drugs, in brief.
A strange plant that treats complications of the virus
Several studies conducted by scientists indicate that the cannabis plant can be used to help treat the potentially fatal complications of the emerging corona virus.
Indian hemp is a medicinal plant with anesthetic effect, and it comes from Central Asia and India.
Researchers at the University of South Carolina conducted three studies on mice, and found that THC – the chemical present in this plant – can help prevent the harmful immune response that causes acute respiratory distress syndrome in Corona patients, according to the British newspaper Daily Mail.
In dozens of experiments across all three studies, all of the mice that were given THC survived after the toxin, while the mice that didn’t get the chemical died.

The researchers created a list of the most common symptoms that patients reported, in the first seven days after the onset of the disease, according to Russia Today.
Two of the most surprising early warning signs revealed in the study are headache and fatigue.
A genetic factor that determines the body’s response to the virus
Scientists from Sweden and Germany revealed that the genetic factor responsible for the acute form of “Covid-19” disease was inherited by modern humans from Neanderthals.
And according to Nature magazine, scientists confirm that the task of this part of the DNA is basically to protect the body from viruses, but it seems that in the case of “Covid-19”, the immune system of the body of a person whose genome is such a part is fighting infection with intense activity, what It weakens the “host” body and triples the risk of the acute course of the disease, according to Russia Today.
