A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM DR. KOHUT

As the weeks pass by, I find myself reflecting on how a pandemic will change our lives and our world in the future. I hope that society has a renewed faith in science, and sees the need for public institutions to protect us against pandemics. I also hope that we have learned that our strength lies in working together, (communities and countries), and that we have become more conscious of those who are vulnerable in our society and those who need more of our support.

I have decided to continue the pot pourri of new information COVID related activities. A great deal of research and innovation on COVID-19 treatment happens here at the University Toronto, a few are listed below.

Stay vigilant, stay well, and continue to distance socially.

Summer won’t bring an end to transmission of novel coronavirus, U of T study finds
A study published in the CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal) showed that climate is unlikely to play a role in the transmission of COVID. This is the first peer reviewed global study outside China to  confirm these findings. Warmer climate countries experienced no advantage over cold climate countries with COVID. What did make a difference? Public health interventions; specifically restricting mass gatherings, school closures, and social distancing have proven to be highly effective.

Antibody Test Approved in Canada
Health Canada approved a test (Dia Sorin LIASON) that can detect COVID-19 specific antibodies in a person’s blood stream. This test will be able to determine if a person has been exposed to COVID and if they have antibodies that can fight the virus. This is particularly important as we need to know the duration of  immunity provided by the antibodies produced post COVID infection. This test is NOT available to the  general public.
