COVID-19 Latest: Scientist from the Aix-Marseille University-France and Méditerranée Infection Foundation (IHU)- France  in a new controversial study shows that the time of the day can affect infection with the SARS-CoV-2, as well as guide subsequent host immune response implying that circadian rhythm may well be a novel target for managing viral progression.

 

The study findings were published on a preprint server and are currently being peer-reviewed. https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.09.09.290718v1
 
The human circadian rhythm can be described as the 24-hour internal clock in the human brain that balances cycles of alertness and sleepiness as a response to light changes in the environment. In addition to its pivotal role in regulating biological functions, the circadian rhythm has been proposed as a regulator of viral infections. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7191115/
 
Importantly and more specifically, the time of day when the infe
