    SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, can relieve pain, according to a new study by University of Arizona Health Sciences researchers. The finding may explain why nearly half of all people who get COVID-19 experience few or no symptoms, even though they are able to spread the disease, according to the study's corresponding author Rajesh Khanna, a professor in the College of Medicine – Tucson's Department of Pharmacology.

  • Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, said Arizona is at a "pivotal" moment for COVID-19. Daily case reports are about the same as seen in late May and early June, four weeks before the peak of the outbreak. Given that Arizona is at that level now, it's possible rapid infection could take off, said Joe Gerald, an associate professor at University of Arizona's Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health. "It's almost as if we have a loaded gun in our hand and if we're not careful, it can go off and hurt someone," he said of the case trends.
