China Has Developed a COVID-19 Vaccine and Claimed a Successful Trial on Indian Monkey.

              Coronavirus has invaded the world. The whole world is facing a global pandemic crisis. Scientists and doctors have been desperately searching for a vaccine to diagnose this disease for a long time but they have not been successful so far. But now scientists have succeeded in that. China has claimed a successful test of the COVID-19 vaccine. China has been testing various vaccines since mid-April. But the test results of those vaccines were not satisfactory. But now China claiming a successful vaccine trial on Indian monkey. 
              Sinovac Biotech is a Beijing based medical organization developed the COVID-19 vaccine, which is named as Purified Inactivated COVID-19 Vaccine (PiCoVacc). It is an inactivated type of a vaccine injected in 8 Rhesus Macaques, which is an Indian originating monkey. During trial after successful injection of the vaccine, these monkeys after 3 weeks exposed to SARS - CoV 2 that results in COVID-19.
              After one week of expositions the monkeys who injected with a strong dosage of the vaccine have no sign of coronavirus in their lungs. On the other hand, monkeys with no vaccine dosage suffered from strong pneumonia. That means the vaccine worked successfully. Vaccine triggered an immune response to produce antibodies against the virus. This vaccine can also attack the normal virus According to a report published in Science Magazine on the 6th of May 2020, China is the 1st country that conducted the world's 1st animal trial for the Corona Virus vaccine. During this period 11 patients isolated successfully from novel coronavirus. From which there were 5 Chinese, 3 Italian, 1 from Switzerland, 1 from the UK, and 1 Spanish patient. The vaccine triggers antibodies to neutralize coronavirus. Vaccine successfully fought against the COVID-19 virus in isolated patients.

               Another vaccine made by the Chinese military has already been tested on humans. Currently, 7 countries putting their vaccine's for trial- four from China, one by the US, one by the UK and one co-developed by the US and Germany. Italy and Israel also claiming that they have developed the vaccine for COVID-19.
                Advanced medical science and scientific professionals made it easy to get rid of this deadly virus.

Contribution of Engineers to Fight Against COVID-19.

Now the day's world is facing an outbreak of a pandemic. The whole world is affected by the consequences caused by COVID-19. It badly affects public health and the economy of the nation, to survive in this critical situation we must have to stand together and fight against this deadly virus. To get out of this situation we have to follow some safety measures and for that public awareness is a must. As we are lucky enough that various sectors showing their active participation and giving helping hands to help us. The technical sector is one of the examples of a group of peoples who started doing various social welfare activities in terms of technology.

Various departments from IIT Guwahati started researching in their respective fields and areas. Out of which Mechanical, Electrical, Bioscience and Bioengineering plays an important role in developing scientific equipment for diagnosis and safety. It is also in the pr…

The Nanotechnology

Introduction:        The word nano is derived from Latin word nanus means dwarf and GreekNanos which is referred to as a very small or smallest. The term Nanotechnology is a combination of word nano and technology. Nano means the smallest and Technology means method, systems, and devices which are the result of scientific knowledge being used for practical purposes. Nanotechnology or nanoscience involves the ability to see and to control individual atoms and molecules something as small an atom is impossible to see with the naked eyes. The microscope for its study is invented about 30 years ago.
One nanometer is one-billionth of a meter  1 nm = 10^-9 of a meter.
There are 25,400,000 in an inch 1 inch = 25 million and  400 thousand nm
 A sheet of newspaper is about 100,000 nanometer.
          On a comparative scale, if a marble were a nanometer, then one meter would be the size of the earth. Nanotechnology is widely used in technical research and inventions. This field of science can be …

AI Based X-Ray For Diagnosis of COVID-19

The world is facing the global crisis of pandemic. In this situation health care facilities facing problems like staff shortages and overwhelming patient loads. Intense increment in loads of patients tends to work on for compensation of lack, this leads to finding the methods which help the Fastrack diagnosis process.  Researchers from various fields working on developing the methods and devices which help to Fastrack and accurate the diagnosis process.             Approval of the research depends on the accuracy of results and ease of use. Conventional diagnosis methods like Polymerising chain reaction (PCR) are having better results accuracy but the time required for the diagnosis of sample is more. So far in an emergency situation it is often difficult to check more samples in less time. Researchers got a solution to this problem in terms of new technology.             AI (artificial intelligence) is a booming area of research in various fields. The pandemic becomes the gateway for t…
