Shanghai woman in lockdown has to have her double eyelid surgery sutures removed at her complex’s gate
- A Shanghai woman waiting to have the sutures removed from a recent eyelid surgery found her residential complex unexpectedly under COVID-19 lockdown.
- After concerns about a prolonged lockdown, she asked her doctor, named Zhou, for help: “Do you think I can postpone the time to remove the sutures? I feel they have been embedded in my flesh.”
- The doctor told her that the sutures must be removed immediately and initially suggested that she ask someone in her complex to remove the stitches for her.
- Zhou, the woman’s doctor, eventually decided to come to her and remove the stitches at the gate of her residential complex.
An unexpected lockdown forced a Chinese woman to have the stitches of her eyelid surgery removed at the gate of her residential complex.

- Scientists from Fudan University in Shanghai have developed a portable test that utilizes an “electromechanical biosensor” to detect coronavirus infection in four minutes.
- Their trial involved 33 people with COVID-19 and 54 uninfected people, testing the technology against polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test results.
- They reported “perfect” overall agreement as SARS-CoV-2, one of the strains that causes COVID-19, was detected in all 33 positive cases and not once in the 54 negative cases.
A new portable test that detects coronavirus infection within a four-minute window has been developed by scientists in Shanghai.
The test is reportedly as accurate as a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. Using an electromechanical biosensor that analyzes genetic material from swabs, the molecular electromechanical system, or MolEMS, is seen as a promising alternative to the highly sensitive and highly specific PCR test.

Most South Asians have a gene that doubles the risk of death due to respiratory failure from COVID-19, a new study from Oxford University shows.
Key findings: The study, which was published in Nature Genetics, found that 60% of people with South Asian ancestry carry a “higher-risk” version of a gene called LZTFL1. This version predisposes them to developing severe COVID-19.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, closed gyms and at-home quarantines, it is more important than ever to take care of your health and fitness.
For those of us who are able to self-isolate at home during this time, it can be easy to put on that quarantine fifteen if you know what I mean (I know, I should drop a mixtape), and understandably so, since we are falling out of our normal routines of working out at the gym and staying fit. It is also important to recognize that many of us aren’t moving our bodies as much as usual as we don’t walk as much at home as we do in our normal day to day lives.
