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 comparative analysis of colour-emotion associations in 16-88-year-old adults from 31 countries Sat, 02 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
As people age, they tend to spend more time indoors, and the colours in their surroundings may significantly impact their mood and overall well-being. However, there is a lack of empirical evidence to provide informed guidance on colour choices, irrespective of age group. To work towards informed choices, we investigated whether the associations between colours and emotions observed in younger individuals also apply to older adults. We recruited 7393 participants, aged between 16 and 88 years...
- Neurological morbidity of surgery for supra-sylvian operculo-insular epilepsy Sat, 02 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to identify risk factors associated with surgery-related neurological morbidity in patients with drug-resistant epilepsy undergoing supra-sylvian operculo-insular resections. As secondary outcomes, we also analyzed the risk factors for ischemic lesions (IL) of corona radiata and seizure recurrence.
- Passive antibody therapy in emerging infectious diseases Fri, 01 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
The epidemic of corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus 2 and its variants of concern (VOCs) has been ongoing for over 3 years. Antibody therapies encompassing convalescent plasma, hyperimmunoglobulin, and neutralizing monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) applied in passive immunotherapy have yielded positive outcomes and played a crucial role in the early COVID-19 treatment. In this review, the development path, action mechanism, clinical research...
- Protein corona, influence on drug delivery system and its improvement strategy: A review Fri, 01 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
Nano drug delivery systems offer several benefits, including enhancing drug solubility, regulating drug release, prolonging drug circulation time, and minimized toxicity and side effects. However, upon entering the bloodstream, nanoparticles (NPs) encounter a complex biological environment and get absorbed by various biological components, primarily proteins, leading to the formation of a 'Protein Corona'. The formation of the protein corona is affected by the characteristics of NPs, the...
- Accuracy meets simplicity: A constitutive model for heterogenous brain tissue Fri, 01 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
We present a general, hyperelastic, stretch-based potential that shows promise for modeling the mechanics of brain tissue. A specific four-parameter model derived from this general potential outperforms alternative models, such as the modified Ogden model, the Gent model, Demiray model, and machine-learning models, in capturing brain tissue elasticity. Specifically, the stretch-based model achieved R² values of 0.997, 0.992, and 0.993 (tension, compression, and shear) for the cortex, 0.995,...
- Selective Manipulation of the Mitochondria Oxidative Stress in Different Cells Using Intelligent Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles to Activate On-Demand Immunotherapy for Cancer Treatment Fri, 01 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
Herein, the vitamin K(2) (VK(2) )/maleimide (MA) coloaded mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs), functional molecules including folic acid (FA)/triphenylphosphine (TPP)/tetrapotassium hexacyanoferrate trihydrate (THT), as well as CaCO(3) are explored to fabricate a core-shell-corona nanoparticle (VMM(FTT) C) for on-demand anti-tumor immunotherapy. After application, the tumor-specific acidic environment first decomposed CaCO(3) corona, which significantly levitates the pH value of tumor tissue...
- EUV telescope for a Cubesat nanosatellite Fri, 01 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
This paper describes in detail a compact (2U format) telescope operating in the extreme ultraviolet range for studying the solar corona at a wavelength of 17.14 nm. The telescope objective has been built according to the Ritchey-Chrétien scheme with the following parameters: effective focal length of 381.3 mm, field of view of 2×2^(∘), and angular resolution of 11 in. Reflective multilayer Al/Be coatings were used, having 55% reflectance and a 0.4 nm spectral bandwidth. The wavefront rms error...
- rTMS concurrent with cognitive training rewires AD brain by enhancing GM-WM functional connectivity: a preliminary study Fri, 01 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and cognitive training for patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) can change functional connectivity (FC) within gray matter (GM). However, the role of white matter (WM) and changes of GM-WM FC under these therapies are still unclear. To clarify this problem, we applied 40 Hz rTMS over angular gyrus (AG) concurrent with cognitive training to 15 mild-moderate AD patients and analyzed the resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging before...
- Effective Preventative Measures are Essential to Lower Disease Burden From Dengue and COVID-19 Co-infection in Bangladesh Thu, 30 Nov 2023 06:00:00 -0500
Bangladesh is widely recognized as one of the dengue prone nations, and empirical evidence has consistently demonstrated an upward trend in the severity of the disease over time. With the persistent occurrence of dengue in Bangladesh and the ongoing presence of COVID-19, which has not been fully eradicated and may persist for an uncertain period of time, there is a high probability of co-infection between these 2 illnesses. Given the circumstances, the concurrent occurrence of the COVID-19 and...
- Radiologic-pathologic autopsy correlation of an internal watershed infarct, a case report Thu, 30 Nov 2023 06:00:00 -0500
Internal watershed infarcts (IWIs) occur at the junction of the deep and superficial perforating arterial branches of the cerebrum. Despite documentation in the radiology literature, IWIs are rarely encountered at the time of autopsy. Here, we report the case of a 59-year-old incarcerated male who was brought to the emergency department after being found unresponsive on the floor of his jail cell. Initial examination and imaging demonstrated right-sided hemiplegia, aphasia, right facial droop,...
