Telangana reported 1,637 new COVID-19 cases, taking the tally to2,44,143 while sixmore deaths pushed the toll to 1,357, the state government said on Wednesday.

Researchers say these results are not yet ready for clinical practice, but they are adding a new perspective to robust anticoagulant and inflammatory research in patients with COVID-19. It was found to prevent the efficient growth of both Zika and herpes, but there was no effect on Sars-CoV-2, mainly because it was unable to replicate in the cornea in the first place.

The authors wrote, "We may learn those eye coverings are not necessary to protect against infection in the general community, but our studies really are just the beginning".

"Our findings contribute to a better understanding of the disease and help us in the development of potential vaccines since we now have access to promising biomarkers and can perform even better monitoring", the scientists wrote.
