Corona Virus Net is the web resource for anyone interested in Coronaviruses. Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and humans. Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, and shortness of breath. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing. Also avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.
A pneumonia of unknown cause detected in Wuhan, China was first reported to the WHO on 31 December 2019. The outbreak of COVID-19 was declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 30 January 2020 by the WHO. As of March 11th, the WHO declared the rapidly spreading coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, acknowledging that the virus will likely spread to all countries in the world.
The objectives of Corona Virus Net are to be the public and professional information resource for coronaviruses and to serve as a network in the exchange of information and news related to coronaviruses. What do you know about the novel Coronavirus that is causing a health emergency?

COVID-19 -- Worldwide/Unknown
A lower dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine -- one-3rd the amount given to adults and teens -- is safe and triggered a robust immune response in children as young as 5 years old, the drug companies announced in a news release Monday morning.
The finding, eagerly anticipated by many parents and pediatricians, is a crucial step toward the 2-shot coronavirus vaccine regimen becoming available for younger school-aged children, perhaps close to Halloween.

- A linear mixed model to estimate COVID-19-induced excess mortality Mon, 25 Oct 2021 06:00:00 -0400
The Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic has increased mortality in countries worldwide. To evaluate the impact of the pandemic on mortality, the use of excess mortality rather than reported COVID-19 deaths has been suggested. Excess mortality, however, requires estimation of mortality under non-pandemic conditions. Although many methods exist to forecast mortality, they are either complex to apply, require many sources of information, ignore serial correlation, and/or are influenced by...
- The attitudes of elementary and middle school students and teachers towards online learning during the corona pandemic outbreak Mon, 25 Oct 2021 06:00:00 -0400
The coronavirus pandemic has impacted the education systems worldwide and most, including the Israeli, have transitioned to online learning. Moreover, closing schools has extreme social, cultural, educational and economic implications on the student, teacher and parent populations. This is especially true for students from families of lower-socio-economic status and young students who need parental assistance. Furthermore, online learning is not suitable for all teachers, because some lack the...
- Subjective Symptoms in Magnetic Resonance Imaging Personnel: A Multi-Center Study in Italy Mon, 25 Oct 2021 06:00:00 -0400
Introduction: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) personnel have significant exposure to static and low-frequency time-varying magnetic fields. In these workers an increased prevalence of different subjective symptoms has been observed. The aim of our study was to investigate the prevalence of non-specific subjective symptoms and of "core symptoms" in a group of MRI personnel working in different centers in Italy, and of possible relationships with personal and occupational characteristics....
- Searching for urban mobilities futures. Methodological innovation in the light of COVID-19 Mon, 25 Oct 2021 06:00:00 -0400
The global Covid-19 crisis reveals the very nature of the mobilized and interconnected risk society. Media discourse, everyday talk, science and arts process daunting questions such as Can we live a "normal" life, again?, What exactly will happen when the Corona pandemic becomes less dangerous? Can business, public and everyday life go back to how they used to be? These questions open up possibilities to rethink current forms of urban planning. In many ways this needs sophisticated methodologies...
- Transportation of AIE-visualized nanoliposomes is dominated by the protein corona Mon, 25 Oct 2021 06:00:00 -0400
Liposomes, especially cationic liposomes, are the most common and well-investigated nanocarriers for biomedical applications, such as drug and gene delivery. Like other types of nanomaterials, once liposomes are incubated in a biological milieu, their surface can be immediately cloaked by biological components to form a protein corona, which confers a new 'biological identity' and modulates downstream interactions with cells. However, it remains unclear how the protein corona affects the...
- White Matter Correlates of Hostility and Aggression in the Visuospatial Function Network in Patients With Schizophrenia Mon, 25 Oct 2021 06:00:00 -0400
Background: Violent acts in patients with schizophrenia are often associated with their hostility and aggression levels. Poor visuospatial processing has been suggested as a possible risk factor of violence in schizophrenia. However, studies investigating the relationship between hostility, aggression, and the visuospatial function have been lacking. Here, we aimed to investigate brain dysconnectivity associated with hostility and aggression in schizophrenia, particularly focusing on the...
- 'At first I was overwhelmed, but then-I have to say-I did almost enjoy it'. Psychological needs satisfaction and vitality of student teachers during the first Covid-19 lockdown Mon, 25 Oct 2021 06:00:00 -0400
According to Self-Determination Theory, the satisfaction of the three basic psychological needs (BPN) is crucial for optimal personal and academic development, as well as well-being, which is associated with the perceived vitality. These dimensions can be fostered or hindered by contextual factors within the work, study and personal environment. During the first COVID-19 lockdown, most social contexts for student teachers were substantially altered, for which we hypothesised negative outcomes...
- The incidence of psychosocial disturbances during the coronavirus disease-19 pandemic in an Iranian sample Mon, 25 Oct 2021 06:00:00 -0400
The spreading of the Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic could be associated with psychosocial implications. This study, therefore, aimed to investigate the psychosocial disturbances before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. The cross-sectional study included 20,885 participants (12,343 females and 8,542 males) with psychosocial trauma who were selected by the census sampling method from Fars province, Iran. The mean age of participants in this study was 35.76 (7.52). The results showed...

CONCLUSION: The present study identified novel brain structural alterations in RBD patients with MCI which correlated with poorer cognitive performance. These results are consistent with those reported in patients with synucleinopathies-related cognitive impairment.
- The COVID-19 outbreak on dental practice in State of São Paulo, Brazil Mon, 25 Oct 2021 06:00:00 -0400
Brazil has become the epicenter of coronavirus disease, and the São Paulo State has the worst scenario. This study evaluated the effect of the COVID-19 in dentists of São Paulo State, Brazil. A self-administered web-based survey with 33 multiple-choice questions was sent to dentists. Descriptive statistics were used to assess the 302 valid responses. Data were analyzed by Chi-square, McNemar and Wilcoxon tests (α = 0.05). Most of the participants aged until 34 years (61.6%) and were female...
