Passengers who arrive to airports in Spain will be obliged to pass triple checks for coronavirus symptoms. Salvador Illa, the country's Healthcare Minister reported that as quoted by elMon.

PCR tests will be only performed among citizens with visible symptoms or those who contacted the sick people.

Besides, the official claimed that another secondary check will be performed after these three obligatory checks at the airport.

Amid growing pandemic, scientists from Oxford University said that an inexpensive and affordable drug reduces mortality of patients with severe Covid-19.

We are talking about a steroid dexamethasone. If this fact is confirmed, it will be the first drug that showed a decrease in mortality in severely ill patients. Researchers estimate that if doctors used the drug to treat the most seriously ill patients with Covid-19 in the UK since the start of the pandemic, they could prevent up to 5,000 deaths.

In severe cases, the virus directly affects the cells lining the patient’s airways and lungs. But the infection can also trigger an overwhelming immune response, which is just as dangerous. Three-quarters of patients hospitalized with Covid-19 receive oxygen.

The drug reduces inflammation caused by the immune system, protecting tissues.
