Increasing COVID-19 testing to include those who are asymptomatic is key to combatting the spread of coronavirus.
As many as two in five Americans report concerns about experiencing increased anxiety in the wake of coronavirus. 68% of people feel like everything is out of their control. 38% of Americans report feeling optimistic about the country's recovery, believing we will come out of the pandemic stronger than before.
Study identifies 275 ways to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 when countries eventually attempt to reduce social distancing pract
Researchers urge health officials to recognize and inform the public that airborne transmission of COVID-19 from droplets expelled by an infected person can spread beyond six feet. The study reports ventilation systems in cruises could have spread the virus between passengers. Measures to reduce indoor viral airborne transmission are proposed.
Droplets from a cough travel at a speed of 1.2 meters per second at peak velocity. Findings reveal that there is no logical reason to suggest 6 foot of physical distance is substantial at reducing coronavirus transmission.
A new mathematical model reveals a more realistic picture of the number of likely COVID-19 cases, both in the US and worldwide, compared to reported data.
Mathematical model uses real-time monitoring data of COVID-19 transmissibility and severity to fine-tune control strategies, offering a better chance of minimizing a second wave of infection in mainland China.
Mathematical model incorporated several strategies to help flatten the COVID-19 curve, focusing on scarcity in hospital resources over two years. The models showed current physical distancing can help maintain healthcare capacity and reduce infections. The model also allowed for periodic economic and psychological breaks from social restrictions.
Preliminary results from a new model suggest the COVID-19 lockdown should last for more than six weeks. The advice is based on data which shows it takes countries almost three weeks to see a growth rate staying below 10% and doubling time over seven days. It takes a month to keep the growth rate under control and at 1%, and 45 days to achieve containment.
Implementing strong physical distancing measures across Europe to suppress the spread of COVID-19 has averted over 100,000 deaths, a new model finds.
Intermittent social distancing may have to be employed to reduce the burden on the health care system as a result of COVID-19. If COVID-19 is a seasonal ailment, like the flu, a new model shows physical distancing occurring between 25 and 75% of the time would help build up herd immunity and prevent health system overload.
While introverts may be more accustomed to spending time alone, extroverts may have a slight edge in coping with current COVID-19 distancing measures. Researchers say using the term physical distancing rather than social distancing may be more appropriate, as we all need social interactions for our general mental wellbeing.
