Summary
Most people who develop coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) recover within 2–6 weeks, but some experience lasting symptoms. Others with severe COVID-19 may develop complications, require rehabilitation after a hospital stay, or both.

DNA vs. mRNA vaccines: Similarities and differences
DNA and RNA vaccines use genetic material to deliver information to human cells and elicit an immune response. DNA vaccines are safe, easy, affordable to produce, and, unlike RNA vaccines, are stable at room temperature. These attributes make them more promising for rapidly immunizing populations, especially in resource-limited settings.

THL:n Salminen: Pandemian loppusuora häämöttää – paluuta koviin rajoituksiin tuskin tullaan näkemään.
