What the 2009 swine flu pandemic can tell us about the future of COVID-19

The first documented case of COVID-19 is thought to have appeared on December 1 2019 in Wuhan, China. Four months later, the world is in the middle of a pandemic with little idea of what comes next. Yet this is not the first pandemic to occur in recent years. On March 17 2009, the first case of a novel H1N1 influenza virus infection, also known as swine flu, was documented in Mexico. It rapidly spread throughout Mexico and the US and was declared a full pandemic by the WHO on June 11 2009. Swine...

Blood groups — and their antibodies — are being explored to understand immunity to SARS-CoV2

COVID-19, which first emerged in Wuhan, China in December 2019, is relentlessly sweeping across the world. The scale of the epidemic has caused chaos and led to the World Health Organization declaring it a pandemic in early February 2020. Understanding the virus is the preoccupation of scientists who are trying to unravel its mysteries as a first step to finding ways to stop the disease spreading, and to finding a vaccine. On a daily basis scientists are finding out new things about SARS-CoV-2, ...

Coronavirus: How to find hidden infections? Stanford and UC fast-track new tests

Feeling mildly feverish? Have a cough? Are you a little short of breath? To test you for the flu, your doctor will do a simple nasal swab and then send you home. But a coronavirus test, if it’s available, is more like a triathlon. Even as cases escalate, tests remain limited, despite White House assurances. So you must first be approved by government health officials for testing, and share your name, address and contact information. Your doctor can’t test you; only the county health department c...

Wuhan CT scans reliable for coronavirus (COVID-19) diagnosis, limited for differentiation

An American Journal of Roentgenology open-access article by radiologists from Wuhan, China concluded that chest CT had a low rate of misdiagnosis of COVID-19 (3.9%, 2/51) and could help standardize imaging features and rules of transformation for rapid diagnosis; however, CT remains limited for the identification of specific viruses and distinguishing between viruses. The authors also found CT features of COVID-19 that differ from both severe acute respiratory syndrome and Middle East respirator...

New compounds thwart multiple viruses, including coronavirus

According to a Feb. 13 report from the World Health Organization, the Wuhan coronavirus has stricken more than 46,000 people and has caused over 1,300 deaths since the first cases in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. Now, researchers reporting in ACS' Journal of Medicinal Chemistry have designed compounds that block the replication of similar coronaviruses, as well as other disease-causing viruses, in the lab. The compounds have not yet been tested in people.

Evolution of Wuhan coronavirus (2019-nCoV) and modeling of spike protein for human transmission

The pneumonia outbreak in Wuhan, China in December 2019 was caused by a novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), which was found to belong to Betacoronavirus and share with SARS/SARS-like coronaviruses a common ancestor resembling bat coronavirus HKU9-1. While bats were likely its native host, modeling of spike protein showed a strong affinity to human ACE2 molecule, presenting the first evidence for human transmission throught the same infection mechanism of 2003 SARS-CoV, e.g. spike - ACE2 interaction.
