The person said after being hospitalised in July 2021 for Covid, he experienced erectile dysfunction.

A young man in the US has claimed that his penis shrunk by a total of 1.5 inches after contracting Covid-19 last July. The man in his 30s claimed in a letter written to Slate Magazine's How to Do It podcast, where they answer questions about sex, submitted anonymously by their audience, New York Post reported.

In the latest episode, the person said after being hospitalised in July 2021 for Covid, he experienced erectile dysfunction. While the condition was resolved after treatment, he found a more permanent change. "I seem to be left with a lasting problem. My penis has shrunk," he said. "Before I got sick, I was above average, not huge, but definitely bigger than normal. Now I've lost about an inch and a half and become decidedly less than average."

Infection with antibiotic-resistant bacteria and biofilm formation halt healing progress.

A team of scientists from the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) have found a cure for those suffering from chronic wounds, particularly with diabetic foot ulcers. The team led by Prof Gopal Nath of the department of Microbiology, Institute of Medical Sciences, said that wounds that took months and years to heal, could now be cured in days or months. The findings of study have been published in the National Centre for Biotechnology Information, National Institutes of Health, US.

Australian botanists have assembled the genomic sequence ofthe New South Wales Waratah.

Australian botanists have assembled the genomic sequence of one of Australia's most significant and iconic flowers, the New South Wales Waratah. The team of researchers, led by the Australian Institute of Botanical Science, said the sequencing, published in the Molecular Ecology Resources journal on Wednesday, would play a vital role in the future conservation of the plant.

The research would allow future varieties of the flowering plant to be bred with protection against pests and disease. It would also provide a stepping stone for the sequencing of other closely related plants, Xinhua news agency reported. Lead researcher Stephanie Chen, from the Institute's Research Centre for Ecosystem Resilience and (University of New South Wales) UNSW Sydney, said the process of sequencing was like "putting together a puzzle and it has billions and billions of pieces."

"With the help of three different sequencing technologies, we've been able to link all the pieces that are the bits of DNA together, ultimately revealing the puzzle," she said.
