Despite the push for the country to reopen, researchers warn social distancing measures should remain in effect until the summer to avoid a potential deadly resurgence of coronavirus.

Glycerol monolaurate (GML), a compound found in human breast milk, fights against the effects of harmful bacteria while allowing beneficial bacteria to thrive. GML also inhibits inflammation in epithelial cells, helping to prevent both bacterial and viral infections of the gut. GML is 200 times higher in human breast milk than cow milk. Researchers propose adding GML to infant formula and cow milk given to small children.
Exposure to viral infections in the brain during childhood has been linked to an increased risk of developing multiple sclerosis later in life.
