Aerosols, masks, infectiousness: Coronavirus myths debunked

By |2021-02-20T07:25:19+00:00February 20th, 2021|

Politicians facing the spread of coronavirus, which causes Covid-19, lay claim to “following the science”, conferring a Rosetta Stone-like quality on the discipline: a monolithic key to indisputable facts. But as the philosopher Mary Midgley observed, the value of science lies not in how we store facts but how we interpret them. And interpretations are “always [...]

Structure of Nonstructural Protein 1 from SARS-CoV-2

By |2021-02-20T07:25:15+00:00February 20th, 2021|

ABSTRACT The periodic emergence of novel coronaviruses (CoVs) represents an ongoing public health concern with significant health and financial burdens worldwide. The most recent occurrence originated in the city of Wuhan, China, where a novel coronavirus (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 [SARS-CoV-2]) emerged causing severe respiratory illness and pneumonia. The continual emergence of novel coronaviruses [...]

Real human surface touch behavior based quantitative analysis on infection spread via fomite route in an office

By |2021-02-20T07:25:11+00:00February 20th, 2021|

Abstract Fomites can transmit some infectious diseases. Human touch behaviors are known to affect virus transmission in buildings. Using video cameras in a graduate student office, we collected more than 98,000 touch actions from 14 h of high-resolution video data of surfaces touched by fingers, palms, and backs of hands. Based on the collected data, [...]

By |2021-02-20T07:25:06+00:00February 20th, 2021|

Background: Elderly patients infected with COVID-19 are reported to be facing a substantially increased risk of mortality. Clinical characteristics, treatment options, and potential survival factors remain under investigation. This study aimed to fill this gap and provide clinically relevant factors associated with survival of elderly patients with COVID-19. Methods: In this multi-center study, elderly patients (age ≥65 years [...]

Virologist: WHO Team Found No ‘Credible Link’ Between Wuhan Labs, COVID-19

By |2021-02-20T07:25:04+00:00February 20th, 2021|

After traveling to Wuhan, China, a team of researchers from the World Health Organization is readying a preliminary report on the origins of the coronavirus. Wuhan is where the virus was first reported in December 2019. The WHO team’s main public conclusion so far is that it’s “extremely unlikely” that the virus originated in a lab in [...]
