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.

- Test Concept of the City of Cologne for Critical Infrastructure (KRITIS) during the First Wave of the COVID-19 Pandemic Fri, 08 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
CONCLUSION: With the KRITIS concept, the Public Health Department of Cologne developed and implemented an offer for system-relevant professional groups that was intensively used and mostly assessed as positive. This concept can be used as a blueprint for other pandemics.
- Respuestas ante la ausencia familiar en la migración de adolescentes no acompañados en México Fri, 08 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
OBJETIVO: Conocer las diferentes respuestas de adolescentes centroamericanos que migran solos en México ante la ausencia familiar. Material y métodos. Se utilizaron métodos cualitativos y visuales (entrevistas semiestructuradas, técnica de elicitación visual, taller de dibujo y análisis temático). Se entrevistaron migrantes de entre 14 y 19 años no acompañados y trabajadores en servicios para migrantes.
- Controllability of N -Duplication Corona Product Networks With Laplacian Dynamics Fri, 08 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
This article studies the controllability of a new composite network generated by two smaller scale factor networks via the Corona product with Laplacian dynamics. First, the eigenvalues and corresponding eigenvectors of a new composite network-the N -duplication Corona product network-are derived by some properties of its factor networks. Second, a necessary and sufficient algebra-based criterion for the controllability of such network is established based on the Popov-Belevitch-Hautus (PBH)...
- Development of a Novel Telemedicine Tool to Reduce Disparities Related to the Identification of Preschool Children with Autism Fri, 08 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
The wait for ASD evaluation dramatically increases with age, with wait times of a year or more common as children reach preschool. Even when appointments become available, families from traditionally underserved groups struggle to access care. Addressing care disparities requires designing identification tools and processes specifically for and with individuals most at-risk for health inequities. This work describes the development of a novel telemedicine-based ASD assessment tool, the...
- Toward a Unified Description of the Electrostatic Assembly of Microgels and Nanoparticles Thu, 07 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
The interplay of soft responsive particles, such as microgels, with nanoparticles (NPs) yields highly versatile complexes that show great potential for applications, ranging from plasmonic sensing to catalysis and drug delivery. However, the microgel-NP assembly process has not been investigated so far at the microscopic level, thus hindering the possibility of designing such hybrid systems a priori. In this work, we combine state-of-the-art numerical simulations with experiments to elucidate...
- Influence of pesticide exposure on farmers' cognition: A systematic review Thu, 07 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
CONCLUSION: Despite the limited number of trials, we found scientific evidence to support the existence of adverse effects of pesticides on farmers' cognition. We recommend that future studies research similar projects, expanding knowledge on the subject.
- Hoyaspectatissima (Gentianales, Apocynaceae), a new species from Yunnan, China Thu, 07 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
Hoyaspectatissima, a new species from Yunnan Province, China, is described and illustrated. Hoyaspectatissima is morphologically similar to H.lyi, but can be easily distinguished from the latter by its succulent leaves that are 2‒4.5 cm long (vs. coriaceous leaves that are up to 9 cm long), corolla that is pink to pale pink (vs. yellowish-white) and corona lobes that are sub-rhombic in top view (vs. ovoid in top view).
- Identifying effective factors to alleviate postnatal distress and coronavirus anxiety in mothers of hospitalized preterm neonates Wed, 06 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
CONCLUSIONS: The correlation between CA and PDM suggests that preterm neonate's mothers experienced increased anxiety during the pandemic. Considering the factors influencing these anxieties, targeted programs should be developed to enhance the mental health of these mothers in future pandemics. The finding that women with more children experienced less CA could serve as evidence of the positive impact of having children on the mental health of women with premature infants during a pandemic.
- Study protocol for evaluating the current status and needs assessment of health-related characteristics among students at Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg Wed, 06 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
Today, university students face study conditions that increase the risk of sedentary behavior, unhealthy eating, and the likelihood of stress, anxiety, and depression. Although the situation has likely worsened in recent months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, even in the pre-Corona era, several investigations have demonstrated that the students' health behaviors could increase the incidence of metabolic risk factors and non-communicable diseases, however, further and detailed information is needed...
- Unveiling protein corona formation around self-propelled enzyme nanomotors by nanoscopy Wed, 06 Dec 2023 06:00:00 -0500
The interaction of nanoparticles with biological media is a topic of general interest for drug delivery systems and among those for active nanoparticles, also called nanomotors. Herein, we report the use of super resolution microscopy, in particular, stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (STORM), to characterize the formation of a protein corona around active enzyme-powered nanomotors. First, we characterized the distribution and number of enzymes on nano-sized particles and characterized...
