Two sources were found cause of large number of new COVID-19 cases in Woodbridge, health and fitness centers reopen today

WOODBRIDGE – The township reported 18 new COVID-19 cases over a three-day period, which brings the total number of cases to 1,919, according to Mayor John McCormac in his coronavirus report on Aug. 31.

Twelve new cases of COVID-19 were reported for Aug. 28, four new cases were reported for Aug. 29, and two new cases were reported for Aug. 30.

McCormac said through contact tracing, township officials were able to find two sources for the large number of cases on Aug. 28.

“First, several cases were from two families who are next door neighbors and who dined together recently,” he said. “Second, several other cases work for the same out-of-town company, which has since been closed down.”

The number of COVID-19 cases include East Jersey State Prison and a number of related state facilities in the Avenel section of the township. The state reported zero new cases from their

Unlocking the mystery of tau for treatment of neurodegenerative diseases

Unlocking the mystery of tau for treatment of neurodegenerative diseases
Under normal physiological conditions, FUS and SFPQ interact in the nucleus of nerve cells and regulate the alternative splicing of MAPT by excising exon 10. When this functional machinery is impaired, the splicing ratio of MAPT exon 10+/exon 10- is increased, which in turn results in an increased 4R-Tau/3R-Tau ratio. The findings of Dr Ishigaki’s team suggest the presence of a pathophysiological link between FUS/SFPQ interaction and the regulation of 4R-Tau/3R-Tau isoforms, which is involved in the pathogenesis of FTLD spectrum diseases.

Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) is a type of dementia that appears earlier in life than Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Both FTLD and AD, along with several other neurodegenerative diseases, are marked by the appearance and clustering of the protein tau in nerve cells. However, there is much left to be explored about this mechanism.

Now, a team of researchers from various collaborating universities and hospitals in

Home quarantine wristbands come in various colours, says health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

PETALING JAYA: The health ministry said today that “quarantine wristbands” come in all colours, and not only in pink as commonly supposed.

Health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said today the wristbands could be in white, blue, red and yellow. “The colours are subject to the levels of stocks in the area and are determined by the respective district health office,” he said in a tweet.

On the wristbands is written the place and date the medical swab was taken. The wearer is required to remain at home till the 14-day self-isolation ends.

“The Health District Office will remove the band once the quarantine ends,” he said.

Noor Hisham said a police report should be lodged against any individual found to be breaching procedures to stop the transmission.

When not to exercise because it can easily injure the body

What’s more, exercising with a fever won’t be as effective as you’d expect, so it’s best to just rest when you have a fever.

When not to exercise because it can easily injure the body

4. When you feel body aches and pains

Dr Rice warns that deliberately exercising during an injury can make the consequences worse. Especially if your body is constantly experiencing unusual pain, you should stop exercising and see your doctor as soon as possible.

According to Dr., if your body aches from the last exercise, you can still do the exercise but to avoid injury, only do light exercises, such as walking instead of running. You can also skip training and rest if the pain is too severe.

Award-winning Pilates instructor and PT Hollie Grant’s workout builds core strength: A fundamental part of exercising safely and reducing your chance of injury

If you’ve ever been to a Pilates class you’ll know the mega-emphasis that’s placed on building a strong core –TBH it’s the foundation of the entire discipline. From protecting against injury, reducing back pain, sculpting muscle and improving posture, strengthening your core muscles – abdominals, lower back and pelvic floor – has a myriad of benefits. Someone who knows this better than anyone is Pilates instructor, author, PT and founder of ‘Pilates PT’ Hollie Grant.

‘In Pilates we believe that everything radiates from the core, so functional core strength is key,’ she explains. And, luckily for us – and our cores – Hollie’s designed a workout that takes less than 8-minutes (7:30 to be precise) and builds core endurance and strength. If

Factors that affect depression risk

Dovie Salais

At a Glance

  • Researchers screened more than 100 diverse factors in people’s daily lives for links to depression.
  • The findings suggest that getting enough social support and limiting how much media you use may help prevent depression.

Depression is a common, serious mood disorder. Everyone feels sad or lonely sometimes. But if you have depression, these feelings go on for long periods of time. You may feel hopeless or pessimistic, irritable, or have decreased energy or fatigue. You might stop enjoying your hobbies and normal activities and have difficulty concentrating, remembering things, or making decisions.

Experiencing trauma early in life and having certain genes can put you at higher risk for depression. But there are actions that can help protect against depression, such as eating a healthy diet and getting enough sleep and physical activity.

Can COVID-19 Cause Diabetes? – WebMD

By Serena Gordon
HealthDay Reporter

THURSDAY, Sept. 3, 2020 (HealthDay News) — A COVID-19 infection can cause a lot of serious, sometimes lingering health problems, like lung damage, kidney damage and ongoing heart issues. Lately, research has suggested it may also cause the sudden onset of insulin-dependent diabetes.

A new report details the case of a 19-year-old German with asymptomatic COVID-19 infection who ended up hospitalized with a new case of insulin-dependent diabetes.

Five to seven weeks before his diabetes developed, the young man’s parents developed COVID-19 symptoms after an Austrian ski trip. Eventually, the entire family was tested. Both parents tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies, as did the 19-year-old, indicating all had been infected with the coronavirus. However, the son had never had symptoms of the infection.

When the 19-year-old was admitted to the hospital, he was exhausted, had lost more than 26 pounds in
