Alynn works out six days a week to stay fit, and more importantly decompress from her stressful job at Community Regional Medical Center, where she works with COVID -19 patients.

She said lifting weights has kept her balanced throughout the pandemic and emotionally sane.

“It’s just something hard to watch someone struggle with. It’s just a terrible disease and being able to come home and work out – I feel like it’s better for myself, it’s better for my family, because it’s such a good stress reliever,” she says.

Engineered decoys trap virus in test tube study; healthcare workers at high risk even with protections

Engineered decoys trap virus before it can enter cells

The new coronavirus enters cells by attaching to a protein on the cell membrane called the ACE2 receptor. Scientists have now developed a decoy version of ACE2 that lures the virus and traps it, preventing it from infecting human lung cells in test tubes. “We have engineered our ACE2 Trap to bind 100 to 1,000 times tighter to the virus than normal ACE2 that is on victim cells. This provides even more potent blockage that is comparable to neutralizing antibodies,” Dr. James Wells of the University of California

We’re Facing a Mental Health Crisis in Healthcare Workers, the Majority of Whom Are Women

More than 130,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, a novel strain of coronavirus, and cases continue to surge in communities across the country. But for frontline medical workers, particularly those working in emergency rooms and treating COVID-19 patients, the fight has only just begun.

For doctors, nurses, hospital cleaners, and other staff members on the front lines – nearly 80 percent of whom are women, according to the US Bureau of Labor and Statistics – it’s their mental health that has been devastated, and this country is beyond ill-equipped to help them repair it.
