God morgon!

Good morning from Sweden. It’s a new week and a new month! I hope everyone is doing good and staying healthy during these tough times. Like the tradition, today’s digest opens with COVID 19 related articles. There is an interesting Q&A article that provides a lot of important information. There is an article that focused on the disease progression and recovery from COVID in children and found out that Computerized Tomography (CT) may not be the best tool when it comes to analyzing COVID in children. Apart form COVID 19, there is also some new interesting information from the structure of Type-IV pilus. Elsewhere in the digest is an article on an easy to use toolkit for microbiome analysis and development of a new path-breaking point-of-care system for rapid detection of mycobacteria.

Hope you’ll enjoy and learn something new from today’s digest!
