A recent study suggested that people who have a higher omega-3 index have a lower probability of dying due to COVID-19.Researchers with the Fatty Acid Research Institute (FARI) and collaborators at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and in Orange County, CA, published the first direct evidence that higher omega-3 blood levels may reduce the risk for death from COVID-19 infection. The report was published in the journal 'Prostaglandins, Leukotrienes and Essential Fatty Acids'. There are several papers in the medical literature hypothesizing that omega-3 fatty acids should have beneficial effects in patients with COVID-19 infection, but up until now, there have been no published peer-reviewed studies supporting that hypothesis. This study included a hundred patients admitted to the hospital with COVID-19 for whom admission blood samples had been stored. Clinical outcomes for these patients were obtained and blood was analyzed for the Omega-3 Index (O3I, red blood cell membrane EPA+DHA levels) at OmegaQuant Analytics (Sioux Falls, SD).

Surge testing has begun in South Gloucestershire after two cases of the Brazilian variant of Covid-19 were found. Residents who live within five postcode areas and are aged over 16 with no symptoms, are being urged to come forward for testing. The two cases of the new variant are from one household and originate from an individual who travelled back from Brazil on 10 February - five days before the quarantine hotel policy was introduced.
