Welcome to Corona Virus Net
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.

- Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization versus myofascial release therapy in treatment of chronic neck pain: a randomized clinical trial Sat, 03 Jun 2023 06:00:00 -0400
CONCLUSION: This study showed insignificant differences between groups. However, we did not use a control group, indicating that the improvement in outcomes may not have been caused by the intervention.
- Dual targeting Salinomycin-loaded smart nanomicelles for enhanced accumulation and therapeutic outcome in breast cancer Fri, 02 Jun 2023 06:00:00 -0400
Salinomycin is a polyether compound that exhibits strong anticancer activity and is known as the cancer stem cell inhibitor that reached clinical testing. The rapid elimination of nanoparticles from the bloodstream by the mononuclear phagocyte system (MPS), the liver, and the spleen, accompanied by protein corona (PC) formation, restricts in vivo delivery of nanoparticles in the tumor microenvironment (TME). The DNA aptamer (TA1) that successfully targets the overexpressed CD44 antigen on the...

[Purpose] Behavioral restrictions during the corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic may have affected the physical activity levels of college students. We aimed to characterize the body composition and physical activity of college students during these behavioral restrictions. [Participants and Methods] The body composition (height, weight, body mass index, body fat mass, body fat percentage, total body muscle mass, free-fat muscle index [FFMI], and fat mass index [FMI]), physical...
- Cutaneous Adverse Drug Reactions (CADRs) to COVID19 Vaccines: A Case Series Fri, 02 Jun 2023 06:00:00 -0400
Viral vector vaccines (Covishield) and inactivated vaccines (Covaxin) are now being administered worldwide to reduce the impact of life-threatening corona virus disease 19 (COVID-19). Various cutaneous adverse drug reactions (CADRs) have been reported following COVID-19 vaccination. Here, we are reporting series of CADRs following COVID-19 vaccination. Among 18 CADRs, 4 each were of acute urticaria and pityriasis rosea, 2 each of leukocytoclastic vasculitis and herpes zoster, 3 exacerbation of...
- Compromised white matter is related to lower cognitive performance in adults with phenylketonuria Fri, 02 Jun 2023 06:00:00 -0400
Despite increasing knowledge about the effects of phenylketonuria on brain structure and function, it is uncertain whether white matter microstructure is affected and if it is linked to patients' metabolic control or cognitive performance. Thus, we quantitatively assessed white matter characteristics in adults with phenylketonuria and assessed their relationship to concurrent brain and blood phenylalanine levels, historical metabolic control and cognitive performance. Diffusion tensor imaging...
- Impact of campus living conditions on Chinese medical school students' mental health during the COVID-19 campus lockdown: the chain mediating role of cognitive reappraisal and expression suppression Fri, 02 Jun 2023 06:00:00 -0400
CONCLUSION: Campus lockdown management significantly impacts medical school students' mental health. Extensive use of cognitive reappraisal and expression suppression can reduce students' adverse psychological reactions during campus lockdowns to an extent.
- A fluorescence-based sweat test sensor in a proof-of-concept clinical study for COVID-19 screening diagnosis Fri, 02 Jun 2023 06:00:00 -0400
During the corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic period, rapid screening of covid-19 patients has been of great interest by developing a fluorescent sensor for complexation with nonanal, which is a marker for Covid-19 detection in sweat. Solid phase micro-extraction gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (SPME GC-MS) was initially used to quantify nonanal in armpit sweat samples based on an external calibration curve. A sample containing a nonanal content above the threshold of 1.04 μL is...
- Corona Poling Induced Phase Transition to Highly Polar Phase in P(VDF-TrFE-CFE) Dielectric and Charge Transport of Organic Field-Effect Transistors Thu, 01 Jun 2023 06:00:00 -0400
Increasing the number of charge carriers flowing through the charge transport channel to improve the electrical performance of organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) is important because it leads to a low driving voltage and a high drain current value. This paper proposes a new strategy, the corona poling process, to enhance the electrical performance of OFETs using an external electric field when forming a dielectric film using a PVDF-based high-k dielectric terpolymer, P(VDF-TrFE-CFE). A...
- Impact of Age and Clinico-Biochemical Parameters on Clinical severity of SARS-CoV-2 Infection Thu, 01 Jun 2023 06:00:00 -0400
INTRODUCTION: The surge in novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection leading to COrona VIrus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) has overwhelmed the health system. To help health-care workers and policy makers prioritize treatment and to decrease the burden on health systems caused by COVID-19, clinical severity along with various clinico-biochemical parameters was evaluated by designing a cross-sectional study comprising of 236 SARS-CoV-2 infected individuals from Kashmir...
- Enhanced nonlinearities in hybrid structure based on nanoporous membrane and a metallohelicate with promising application in nanophotonics and NLO Thu, 01 Jun 2023 06:00:00 -0400
The main purposes of this work are designing new hybrid structures based on alumina nanoporous membranes with specific metallosupramolecular structure as well as studies of their usefulness in nonlinear optics (NLO). The NLO studies of the hybrid material is performed on the basis of two methods: the first by the Maker fringe technique, where the second harmonic generation (SHG) signal is recorded by rotating the sample; and the second by SHG imaging microscopy, where the SHG signal is collected...
