Researchers have frequently theorized that vitamins C and D might ease coronavirus symptoms or prevent infection, but a new study suggests that another vitamin may also be helpful: Vitamin B.In the study, which was published this week in the journal Maturitas, scientists from the University of Oxford, United Arab Emirates University and the University of Melbourne advocated for more research into whether B can help COVID-19 patients. The researchers didn't test the vitamin on patients but pointed out that it has a number of effects that could ameliorate COVID-19. "Vitamin B … plays a pivotal role in cell functioning, energy metabolism and proper immune function," the authors wrote. "Vitamin B assists in proper activation of both the innate and adaptive immune responses, reduces pro-inflammatory cytokine levels, improves respiratory function, maintains endothelial integrity, prevents hypercoagulability and can reduce the length of stay in the hospital." Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. Could calm inflammation and the immune systemThe novel coronavirus seems to cause widespread inflammation throughout the body, impairing breathing and potentially affecting the heart and brain. It's theorized this is caused by an immune system overreaction to the virus called a "cytokine storm." Reducing that inflammation and modulating the immune system could prevent cases of COVID from becoming severe. "Vitamin B not only helps to build and maintain a healthy immune system, but it could potentially prevent or reduce COVID-19 symptoms or treat SARS-CoV-2 infection," the researchers wrote. "Poor nutritional status predisposes people to infections more easily; therefore, a balanced diet is necessary for immuno-competence."Vitamin B "should be assessed" as a possible "adjunct to current treatments" for COVID-19, the researchers concluded. RELATED: Everything Dr. Fauci Has Said About Coronavirus Sources of Vitamin BThere are eight B vitamins, including B1 (thiamine), B6, B12 and folic acid. Deficiency in Vitamin B12 or B6 can cause anemia, and pregnant women are urged to take folic acid during pregnancy to prevent birth defects of the brain and spine. According to the National Institutes of Health, B vitamins can be obtained from proteins such as fish, poultry, meat, eggs, and dairy products; leafy green vegetables, beans, and peas; and cereals and breads that have been fortified with B vitamins. They're also widely available as over-the-counter supplements.As for yourself, do everything you can to prevent getting—and spreading—COVID-19 in the first place: Wear a mask, get tested if you think you have coronavirus, avoid large gatherings, practice social distancing, wash your hands regularly, and to get through this pandemic at your healthiest, don't miss these 37 Places You're Most Likely to Catch Coronavirus.
Coronavirus may be able to spread through buildings via toilets and plumbing pipes, researchers say.According to a report published in the journal Environmental International, coronavirus was found on sinks, faucets and shower handles of a 16th floor apartment that was situated directly above a residence where five people had been sick with COVID-19.The researchers performed a simulation to see if plumbing could spread the virus, and although they couldn't rule out transmission via the building's elevator, they found that toilets may in fact have been responsible."The possibility of aerosol transport through sewage pipe after flushing the toilet at the 15th-floor restroom was confirmed by an onsite tracer simulation experiment showing that aerosols were found in the restroom of apartments on the 25th floor and 27th floor," the researchers wrote.RELATED: COVID Mistakes You Should Never Make Virus shockingly present in feces, urineResearchers have long known that coronavirus was present in feces. Recently, they have found that it may be present in urine and potentially spread via the flushing of urinals, which can theoretically disperse viral particles that can be inhaled, causing infection.Scientists maintain that coronavirus is primarily spread through person-to-person transmission, but it's unclear how often it happens via droplets (the larger particles produced when we cough or sneeze, which tend to drop to the ground fairly quickly) versus aerosols (smaller particles that can linger in the air). The latter group also includes particles potentially spread by flushed toilets. Originally, it was believed that coronavirus was primarily Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious-disease expert, says it's likely that the coronavirus is aerosolized, and scientists are trying to calculate how often that causes infection.RELATED: Everything Dr. Fauci Has Said About CoronavirusThe Environmental International researchers said that previous studies on respiratory aerosols found they can travel "considerable distances" and can take up to nine minutes to drop to the ground. They pointed out that in 2003, over 300 residents of the Hong Kong apartment building Amoy Gardens were infected by the respiratory coronavirus SARS, believed to be carried through plumbing. Advice: Put the lid down"Restrooms, owing to the shedding of SARS-CoV-2 in fecal material and aerosolization during toilet flushing, should be thoroughly cleaned regularly (e.g. ventilation and sterilization)," the researchers wrote. "If the toilet seat is equipped with a lid, it is recommended to close the lid before flushing the toilet, especially in hospitals."As for yourself, do everything you can to prevent getting—and spreading—COVID-19: Wear a face mask regularly, get tested if you think you have coronavirus, avoid large gatherings, practice social distancing, wash your hands regularly, and to get through this pandemic at your healthiest, don't miss these 37 Places You're Most Likely to Catch Coronavirus.
Early on in the pandemic, health experts and organizations—including the CDC and WHO—started stressing the importance of social distancing, Social distancing, "keeping a safe space between yourself and other people who are not from your household," the CDC explains on their website. To practice social or physical distancing, they encouraged staying at least 6 feet (about 2 arms' length) from others in both indoor or outdoor spaces. However, according to new research, the recommended distance may not be enough. And one top infectious disease doctor agrees. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 'Droplets Could Travel Much Longer Distances'British researchers recently proposed graded recommendations "that better reflect the multiple factors that combine to determine risk"—including whether indoors versus outdoors or exposure time to other people. The color coded diagram and analysis were published in The British Medical Journal this week, making the argument that the current rules on safe physical distancing are based on outdated science. "Evidence suggests SARS-CoV-2 may travel more than 2 m through activities such as coughing and shouting," the researcher wrote. Yale School of Medicine and Yale Medicine Infectious Disease Doctor Onyema Ogbuagu agrees, pointing out that virus droplets likely travel more than 6 feet. "Contemporary studies have looked at how much virus you send out into the air when coughing and sneezing and show droplets could travel much longer distances, especially with lighter particles," he tells Eat This, Not That! Health.RELATED: Everything Dr. Fauci Has Said About Coronavirus Here's How Far Apart You Should StandSo how far should you stand? It depends where you are. "It matters if you are indoors vs outdoors," he explains. If outdoors, 6 feet is fine, as there is enough ventilation, but indoors, can't say how far is safe as recirculated air and small droplets can travel really far—one report showed it can be as far as 45 feet!" The data shows that when indoors, ventilation plays a huge role in indoor transmission. "Breathing out, singing, coughing, and sneezing generate warm, moist, high momentum gas clouds of exhaled air containing respiratory droplets. This moves the droplets faster than typical background air ventilation flows, keeps them concentrated, and can extend their range up to 7-8 m within a few seconds," the study explains. With the fall and winter months ahead, Dr. Ogbuagu stresses the importance of keeping air as ventilated and clean as possible. "Every environmental worker should pay attention to installing HEPA filters," he urges.

"Stomach pain certainly isn't something that people love to talk about, but it's a medical symptom that should never be ignored," says Jay Woody, MD, FACEP, chief medical officer of Intuitive Health and a co-founder of Legacy ER&Urgent Care. "Of course, knowing when stomach pain is serious can help a lot. Have you ever had an abdominal false alarm? Whether you have or not, here are a few common types of stomach pain and what could be the causes behind them." And since stomach issues can be a symptom of coronavirus, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.1 If You Have Upper Abdominal Pain"Dull, upper abdominal pain is usually a sign of excess gas," says Dr. Woody. "It could be a result of eating too quickly, eating something that irritated your stomach, or even swallowing air by accident."The Rx: "If you suffer from this kind of abdominal pain, cutting out foods like soda, beer, and dairy might be worth considering," says Dr. Woody. "But there are other solutions too. Certain supplements like charcoal and lactose pills can help your body cope with different irritants."2 If You Have Lower Chest Pain"If you're experiencing lower chest/upper abdominal pain, it's likely that you're suffering from heartburn," says Dr. Woody. "This condition is typically characterized by an acidic taste and a burning type of pain in the lower chest."The Rx: Spicy foods and acidic drinks like coffee and alcohol are the most common culprits here. Antacids and cutting down on foods that irritate your condition are both excellent solutions in this case. If you feel you are having a heart attack—with pain in your arm, a clenched feeling in the chest or dizziness, among other symptoms—seek medical help.3 If You Have Lower Abdominal Pain"A sharp, shooting pain on the lower right side of your abdomen is indicative of appendicitis," says Dr. Woody. "This pain is commonly accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and dizziness."The Rx: If you're experiencing this kind of pain, it's important to seek out emergency services immediately.4 If You Have Indigestion"One common stomach issue that people deal with is indigestion. It is a challenging symptom as its causes can range from benign to serious," says Dr. Leann Poston. "Indigestion can be caused by overeating, anxiety, smoking, or eating greasy foods to name a few causes."The Rx: "Lifestyle changes such as eating small, frequent meals and avoiding greasy foods, or using antacids or antigas medications can help in many of these situations," says Dr. Poston. "However, indigestion can also indicate stomach cancer, ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, or chronic pancreatitis. These more serious conditions require an evaluation and treatment directed towards the cause of the disease."5 If You Have Bloating "Abdominal bloating is one of the most common conditions that prompt patients to see a gastroenterologist. Constipation is a common contributing factor. Just as stool can build up when someone is constipated, air/gas can also build up, and cause bloating," says Jesse Houghton, MD. "A person's diet is also another common cause of bloating. Certain foods, especially dairy products, can cause bloating and gas. This would include milk, cheese, ice cream, and don't forget milk chocolate. A large number of people have a degree of lactose/dairy intolerance and do not realize it." The Rx: "As for the treatment of abdominal bloating, identifying the cause through testing by your doctor, or by diet changes, is one of the first steps. Many patients also respond to a trial of a special diet called a 'Low FODMAP diet'," says Dr. Houghton. "This is basically a diet that is low in certain foods that are hard to digest, and that tend to cause bloating, cramping, and even diarrhea. Probiotics can also be helpful in certain individuals. These are mostly over the counter, with some exception."6 If You Have Irritable Bowel Syndrome"Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is among the most common digestive disorders, affecting some 40 million people in the US," says Lawrence Hoberman, MD. "Its symptoms, including unexpected urgent bouts of diarrhea or abdominal pain, make IBS particularly difficult to deal with in social situations, as well as embarrassing to discuss with even a doctor."The Rx: "IBS sufferers can mitigate discomfort and stress through lifestyle choices such as following a diet rich in fiber, practicing good sleep hygiene and exercising regularly," says Dr. Hoberman. "Probiotics, or beneficial bacteria, in supplement form, have proven helpful by enhancing bacteria diversity in the gut and therefore relieving abdominal pain, bloating, constipation and diarrhea."7 If You Have Vomiting or DiarrheaThis could be due to any number of causes—food poisoning or IBS among them—but don't rule out COVID-19 either. "A recent analysis of more than 200 people admitted to three hospitals in Hubei, China—the province where the virus called SARS-CoV-2 originated—with mild cases of COVID-19 found that almost 1 in 5 had at least one gastrointestinal symptom, such as diarrhea, vomiting, or belly pain. Nearly 80% also lacked an appetite," reports WebMD.8 When to See a Doctor"As previously mentioned, stomach pain is a symptom that absolutely shouldn't be ignored. If pain in any area of your stomach worsens or persists for an extended period of time, it's crucial that you go to an emergency room or an urgent care clinic," says Dr. Woody. "You go to these places for minor injuries and illnesses, so why not for stomach pain?"

With the coronavirus pandemic at the forefront of everyone's mind, even the slightest cough or sniffle is enough to send your anxiety spiraling. Before you assume your slight headache is the dreaded COVID-19, check out 15 of the most common symptoms of the virus, and then call a medical professional if you have any of them. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss the entire list of the Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.1 FeverIf you suddenly develop a fever, it's a telltale sign that you may have COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) list this as one of the most common symptoms of the virus. The CDC conducted an analysis of 199 coronavirus patients throughout the country. It found that 80% of the patients who were hospitalized experienced a fever as a presenting symptom.2 Persistent CoughIf you coughed once or twice throughout the day, it's probably nothing to be concerned about. However, a persistent and dry cough may be a sign that you've contracted coronavirus. An international study conducted by the University of Leeds analyzed the presenting symptoms for COVID-19 patients around the world. It found that a persistent cough was the presenting symptom for 57% of these patients. "This varied across countries, with 76% of patients reporting a cough in the Netherlands compared to 18% in Korea," the study concluded.3 FatigueAny virus that attacks your body and forces your immune system to ramp up is bound to exhaust you. Not only is fatigue one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19, it's also one of the symptoms known to last the longest in patients diagnosed with the virus. The CDC studied 274 symptomatic outpatients and 71% reported feeling fatigue after catching COVID-19. In 35% of these patients, fatigue was still a problem four to eight days after their original diagnosis.4 Loss of Sense of Taste or SmellWhen loss of sense of taste or smell was originally introduced by the CDC as a common symptom of COVID-19, it had many people scratching their heads. But this unusual symptom is actually linked to many respiratory ailments. "It's not uncommon for patients with viral upper respiratory infections to experience a temporary — or sometimes permanent — loss of taste or smell," according to Dr. Justin Turner, MD, Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University. Dr. Turner confirms that about 80% of coronavirus patients complain of a loss of taste or smell. This symptom may be a side effect of the congestion and nasal disruptions COVID-19 causes in patients.5 Shortness of BreathIf you find yourself winded after walking from the bedroom to the kitchen or while you're simply sitting, it may be a symptom of COVID-19. The virus attacks the respiratory system, which can cause patients to experience shortness of breath. This symptom generally lasts for a few days and goes away with other symptoms of the virus. "Around one in every five people who are infected with COVID-19 develop difficulty in breathing and require hospital care," according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Smoking or underlying respiratory and cardiac conditions can contribute to the severity of shortness of breath coronavirus patients may experience. 6 HeadacheEveryone is bound to suffer from a headache from time to time but this can also be a symptom of COVID-19. Headaches in coronavirus patients were mostly presented as "new‐onset, moderate‐severe, bilateral headache with pulsating or pressing quality in the temporoparietal, forehead or periorbital region," according to a study published in Headache: The Journal of Head and Face Pain. The study found that 11% to 34% of COVID-19 patients reported suffering from a headache while battling the virus.7 Muscle AchesWhile muscle aches and pains aren't as common in COVID-19 patients as fever or fatigue, they're still an annoying symptom of the virus. The WHO studied 56,000 COVID-19 cases in China and found that about 15% of the patients reported muscle aches and pains while recovering from the virus. Muscle aches may occur because your immune system is in overdrive attempting to fight off coronavirus, which can cause inflammation.8 ChillsWhen you develop a fever, your body attempts to regulate its temperature with chills. The chills associated with a fever are referred to as "rigor." "Rigor is a sudden feeling of cold with shivering accompanied by a rise in temperature. A true rigor is unlikely to happen without a fever," according to Dr. Emily Spivak, MD from the University of Utah Health. These chills can genuinely make you feel cold but they also confirm that your body is fighting hard against the virus.RELATED: Everything Dr. Fauci Has Said About Coronavirus9 Sore ThroatWhile the CDC lists a sore throat as a symptom of COVID-19, it's not usually a presenting symptom or especially common in the majority of patients. A study conducted in China on COVID-19 symptoms found 13.9% of patients reported experiencing a sore throat after contracting the virus. "Everyone's body reacts differently to the virus, so while it's possible to have a sore throat as a symptom of COVID-19, it's more likely that you'll have other symptoms," according to Dr. Glenn Wortmann, MD from the MedStar Institute of Quality and Safety. 10 Eye ProblemsSome COVID-19 cases have symptoms that include eye problems, such as dry, red, or itchy eyes. Other coronavirus patients have been diagnosed with conjunctivitis, or pink eye, which may be related to the virus. About 33% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients experienced eye problems, according to a study published in JAMA Ophthalmology. However, more studies on the relationship between these eye problems and the virus need to be conducted. "It is still uncertain exactly what percentage of patients with COVID-19 have ocular manifestations and different sources are reporting different numbers," according to Dr. Annie Nguyen, MD from the USC Roski Eye Institute. 11 Nausea or Loss of AppetiteGastrointestinal problems, including nausea or loss of appetite, are also common symptoms of COVID-19 and are included on the CDC's list. A study published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology examined 204 COVID-19 patients and concluded that 50.5% complained of some type of gastrointestinal problem. If the virus progressed from mild to severe, most of these patients reported that these digestive issues also became more prominent. It was also concluded that the patients who reported these gastrointestinal symptoms generally had higher liver enzyme levels or lower white blood cell counts than patients who didn't report the symptoms.12 ConfusionThe CDC reports that "new confusion" is a concerning symptom of coronavirus. If you suddenly feel confused, you should seek emergency medical treatment right away. It may be a sign of low blood oxygen levels or other serious neurological effects. Coronavirus may have negative impacts on the neurological system in some severe cases. A study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) examined 113 COVID-19 patients who eventually passed away from the virus. It found that 22% of these patients had a "disorder of consciousness," which may include confusion.13 Diarrhea or VomitingGastrointestinal problems, such as diarrhea or vomiting, could mean you're dealing with a stomach bug or food poisoning. But these are also symptoms of COVID-19. A study published in the Public Health Emergency COVID-19 Initiative analyzed 206 patients with mild cases. The study found "48 presenting with a digestive symptom alone, 69 with both digestive and respiratory symptoms, and 89 with respiratory symptoms alone." Of the patients with gastrointestinal symptoms, 67 complained of diarrhea and 19.4% claimed this was the presenting symptom of the virus.14 Chest Pain or PressureChest pain or pressure is another potentially concerning symptom of COVID-19. The CDC warns if you feel pain or pressure in your chest, you should seek emergency medical treatment right away. This chest pain may indicate a serious cardiac event or it may be the respiratory effects of coronavirus setting in. "In many of these COVID-19 cases when these patients are given an angiogram, there is no evidence of a major blockage in the heart's blood vessels, which would indicate a heart attack in progress," says Dr. Erin Michos, M.D., M.H.S. from John Hopkins Medicine. 15 Skin Rashes or "COVID Toes"One of the more strange yet increasingly common symptoms of COVID-19 is skin rashes, which may appear as discoloration or lesions. These rashes are usually reported on fingers and toes and may be itchy or painful. Italian medical professionals wrote a letter to the editor of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology and claimed to "have observed a varicella-like papulovesicular exanthem as a rare but specific COVID-19–associated skin manifestation." These medical professionals believe more research needs to be conducted on these coronavirus-related skin rashes since they may be useful as a symptom for COVID-19 patients who are asymptomatic.
