Objective: An outbreak of 2019 novel coronavirus diseases (COVID-19) in Wuhan, China has spread quickly nationwide. Here, we report results of a descriptive, exploratory analysis of all cases diagnosed as of February 11, 2020. Methods: All COVID-19 cases reported through February 11, 2020 were extracted from China's Infectious Disease Information System. Analyses included: 1) summary of patient characteristics; 2) examination of age distributions and sex ratios; 3) calculation of case fatality… 
The Epidemiological and clinical characteristics of 2019 Novel Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) in Balochistan, Pakistan
TLDR
A series of multidimensional public health interventions, a cost-effective surveillance system, and the adoption of safe working practice, awareness sessions are necessary to control the COVID-19 outbreak in Balochistan.
The Incubation Period of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) From Publicly Reported Confirmed Cases: Estimation and Application
TLDR
The results support current proposals for the length of quarantine or active monitoring of persons potentially exposed to SARS-CoV-2, although longer monitoring periods might be justified in extreme cases.
Unique epidemiological and clinical features of the emerging 2019 novel coronavirus pneumonia (COVID‐19) implicate special control measures
TLDR
The latest literatures on genetic, epidemiological, and clinical features of COVID‐19 in comparison to SARS and MERS are summarized and special measures on diagnosis and potential interventions are emphasized to improve understanding of the unique features ofCOVID‐ 19 and enhance control measures in the future.
Epidemiologic Characteristics, Transmission Chain, and Risk Factors of Severe Infection of COVID-19 in Tianjin, a Representative Municipality City of China
TLDR
Evidence is provided on the epidemic of COVID-19 by analyzing the epidemiological characteristics of confirmed cases in Tianjin and finding that self-quarantine at an outbreak's early stage, especially for those with high-risk exposures, is conducive to prevent the transmission of infection.
Epidemiological and clinical characteristics of 333 confirmed cases with coronavirus disease 2019 in Shanghai, China
TLDR
These findings suggest that most cases experienced fever symptoms and had mild pneumonia, and Shanghai's experience proves that COVID‐19 can be controlled well in megacities.
Epidemiological and clinical characteristics of 161 discharged cases with coronavirus disease 2019 in Shanghai, China
TLDR
Age, the first-level public health emergency response and the time from onset to admission were the impact factors for the duration of hospitalization.
Epidemiological characteristics of an outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 in the Philippines
TLDR
The epidemiological characteristics of the laboratory-confirmed patients with Covid-2019 in the Philippines as of April 3, 2020 are described and recommendations on how to limit the spread of the disease are provided.
Epidemiological characteristics and treatment outcomes of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 in Ethiopia.
TLDR
Clinically, tightening prevention and restriction measures to flattening the curve and also establishment of fast detection and advanced treatment of cases were critically requires through the patriotic efforts of frontline health workers, leaders, and stakeholders.

Recent Understandings Toward Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): From Bench to Bedside
TLDR
This review highlights the etiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis and pathology, clinical characteristics, diagnosis, clinical management, prognosis, infection control and prevention of COVID-19 based on recent studies.
Epidemiological and Clinical Characteristics of Cases During the Early Phase of COVID-19 Pandemic: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
A systematic review and meta-analysis aims to review the epidemiological and clinical characteristics of COVID-19 cases in the early phase of the CO VID-19 pandemic, finding ICU patients had a higher proportion of shortness of breath at presentation, as well as pre-existing hypertension, cardiovascular disease and COPD, compared to non-ICU patients in 2 studies.
Analysis of clinical features and early warning signs in patients with severe COVID-19: A retrospective cohort study
TLDR
The results could be helpful in the early detection of patients at risk for severe illness, enabling the implementation of effective interventions and likely lowering the morbidity of COVID-19 patients.
Molecular and serological investigation of 2019-nCoV infected patients: implication of multiple shedding routes
TLDR
Investigation on patients in a local hospital who were infected with a novel coronavirus found the presence of 2019-nCoV in anal swabs and blood, and more anal swab positives than oral swabs positives in a later stage of infection, suggesting shedding and thereby transmitted through oral–fecal route.
Does Early Childhood Vaccination Protect Against COVID-19?
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine could provide a broad neutralizing antibody against numbers of diseases, including COVID-19, and believes that humoral immunity, created through the MMR vaccination, provides children with advantageous protection against CO VID-19.
Identification of RT-PCR-Negative Asymptomatic COVID-19 Patients via Serological Testing
TLDR
Serological testing was applied when identifying nine asymptomatic cases of COVID-19 who showed persistent negative RT-PCR test results for SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid and no symptoms of COIDs, probably due to the transient viral shedding duration.
A Familial Cluster of Infection Associated With the 2019 Novel Coronavirus Indicating Possible Person-to-Person Transmission During the Incubation Period
TLDR
The epidemiological evidence has shown possible transmission of 2019 novel coronavirus during the incubation period, including an 88-year-old man with limited mobility who was exposed only to asymptomatic family members whose symptoms developed later.
Development of Genetic Diagnostic Methods for Novel Coronavirus 2019 (nCoV-2019) in Japan.
TLDR
At the end of 2019, pneumonia caused by novel coronavirus 2019 (nCoV) emerged in Wuhan city, China, suggesting that Japan is at high risk of invasion by the virus.
Early Detection and Assessment of Covid-19
TLDR
The Hashmi-Asif Covid-19 Chart is significant in assessing subclinical and clinical stages of Covid/Cov-19 to reduce the transmission rate and should be adopted.
Potent binding of 2019 novel coronavirus spike protein by a SARS coronavirus-specific human monoclonal antibody
TLDR
It is reported for the first time that a SARS-CoV-specific human monoclonal antibody,CR3022, could bind potently with 2019-nCoV RBD (KD of 6.3 nM), suggesting that CR3022 may have the potential to be developed as candidate therapeutics, alone or in combination with other neutralizing antibodies, for the prevention and treatment of 2019- nCoV infections.
