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?

- PRO/AH/EDR> COVID-19 update (323): Pfizer vaccine in children, vaccine diplomacy, WHO
Mon, 20 Sep 2021 21:44:10 -0400
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.
The companies still must
- Valorization of Caribbean Sargassum biomass as a source of alginate and sugars for de novo biodiesel production Mon, 03 Oct 2022 06:00:00 -0400
Since 2011, a massive influx of pelagic brown algae Sargassum has invaded coastlines causing environmental and economic disaster. Valorizing this plentiful macroalgae can present much needed economic relief to the areas affected. Here the production of biodiesel and a high-value alginate stream using Sargassum biomass collected from the coast of Quintana Roo, Mexico is reported. Biomass was pretreated via AEA (Alginate Extraction Autohydrolysis) and enzymatic saccharification via fungal Solid...
- Midwives' and women's views on digital midwifery care in Germany: Results from an online survey Mon, 03 Oct 2022 06:00:00 -0400
CONCLUSION: The COVID-19 pandemic has become a catalyst for digitalisation in midwifery care in Germany. The digital services were, mostly, well accepted and seen to usefully complement the in-person care of midwives. IT-support, guidelines and quality standards could help to optimise the digital services.
- COVID-19 environmental and operational impact for public transport in Kuwait Mon, 03 Oct 2022 06:00:00 -0400
The corona virus disease pandemic (COVID-19) is one of the recent issues that spread in the world, which disrupted life, impacted the economy, and led to heavy losses, whether for government sectors or private companies. This paper focuses on the Kuwait public transport company KPTC and Kuwait Airways' experience during the pandemic, since they incurred major losses due to the decline of their users. Public transport is a place to catch COVID-19, as it is subjected to the use of a large number...
- COVID-19: a viewpoint from hepatic perspective Mon, 03 Oct 2022 06:00:00 -0400
Coronaviruses as such are known since last century. The name is derived from their shape which has crown (corona) like radiating spikes. The recent one however is a different one from the Coronavirus involved in SARS (2002-2004) and MERS (2012) in being highly infectious. Initially COVID 19 had a high case fatality rate which has now decreased to a significant extent. Many cases of COVID 19 are asymptomatic with a significant number of positive cases developing a triad of fever, breathlessness...
- COVID-19 medical waste transportation risk evaluation integrating type-2 fuzzy total interpretive structural modeling and Bayesian network Mon, 03 Oct 2022 06:00:00 -0400
With the amount of medical waste rapidly increasing since the corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, medical waste treatment risk evaluation has become an important task. The transportation of medical waste is an essential process of medical waste treatment. This paper aims to develop an integrated model to evaluate COVID-19 medical waste transportation risk by integrating an extended type-2 fuzzy total interpretive structural model (TISM) with a Bayesian network (BN). First, an interval...
- Effects of docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaoic acid supplementation on white matter integrity after repetitive sub-concussive head impacts during American football: Exploratory neuroimaging findings from a pilot RCT Mon, 03 Oct 2022 06:00:00 -0400
CONCLUSIONS: These exploratory findings did not provide strong evidence that DHA + EPA prevented or protected against axonal damage as quantified via neuroimaging. Neuroprotective effects on functional connectivity were observed despite white matter damage. Further studies with larger samples are needed to fully establish the relationship between omega-3 supplementation, RSHIs, and neuroimaging biomarkers.
- SARS-CoV-2 infection among employees working from home and on site: An occupational study in Switzerland Mon, 03 Oct 2022 06:00:00 -0400
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies implemented working from home to mitigate the spread of the disease among their employees. Using data from Corona Immunitas Nestlé, a seroepidemiological study conducted among employees from two Nestlé sites in Switzerland, we aimed to investigate whether there was a difference in SARS-CoV-2 infection rates between employees working most of the time from home and employees mobilized in a workplace equipped with a specialized occupational safety unit...
- Renal Impairment Associated With Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazole Use in the Pediatric Population Mon, 03 Oct 2022 06:00:00 -0400
CONCLUSIONS: Changes in renal function suggestive of AKI occur frequently in pediatric patients receiving at least 5 days of treatment with SXT, particularly when using serum creatinine as a marker of AKI. In contrast, when using urine output rather than serum creatinine, the incidence is much lower and may be more reflective of a true change in renal function. Coadministration of nephrotoxic agents increases the risk of development of AKI. Anemia and hyperkalemia are common in patients...
- Radiological Findings of Woodhouse-Sakati Syndrome: Cases Reported From Saudi Arabia Mon, 03 Oct 2022 06:00:00 -0400
Woodhouse-Sakati syndrome (WSS) is a rare autosomal recessive neurodegenerative genetic disorder caused by mutations in the DCAF17 gene. It primarily manifests with endocrinological symptoms such as hypogonadism, failure to develop secondary sexual characteristics, diabetes, and hypotrichosis. Neurological manifestations include intellectual disabilities, dystonia, dysarthria, and hearing loss. This paper describes the cases of two Saudi Arabian sisters, aged 37 and 36, who were born to...
- Novel electrochemical biosensor key significance of smart intelligence (IoMT & IoHT) of COVID-19 virus control management Mon, 03 Oct 2022 06:00:00 -0400
The current outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has led to the different possibilities of the development of treatment against corona virus. To know the phylogenicity of SARS-CoV, various studies have been conducted with the outcome of the results showing virulence is caused due to spike protein. Various detection techniques with clinical approach like imaging technology, RT-PCR etc. are comparatively expensively than the use of biosensors. Nano-biosensors have an excellent way of approach to track...
