  journal={Scientific Reports},
In late December 2019, the novel coronavirus (Sars-Cov-2) and the resulting disease COVID-19 were first identified in Wuhan China. The disease slipped through containment measures, with the first known case in the United States being identified on January 20th, 2020. In this paper, we utilize survey data from the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research and apply several statistical and machine learning models and techniques such as Decision Trees, Multinomial Logistic… 

Hidden Effects of COVID-19 on Healthcare Workers: A Machine Learning Analysis

The findings suggest that some effects of the CO VID-19 pandemic such as school closure, work schedule change and COVID-related news exposure may lead to an increase in alcohol use.

A machine learning analysis of the relationship between some underlying medical conditions and COVID-19 susceptibility

The relationship between the COVID-19 vaccines and boosters and the total case count for the Coronavirus across multiple states in the USA is investigated and the possible connections that can be established with underlying health conditions, vaccination rates, and CO VID-19 total case and death counts are considered.

A Machine Learning Analysis of Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on Alcohol Consumption Habit Changes Among Healthcare Workers in the U.S

It is suggested that COVID-19-related school closures, COVID’s-related work schedule changes and CO VID-related news exposure may lead to an increase in alcohol use among healthcare workers in the United States.

Artificial intelligence-based analytics for impacts of COVID-19 and online learning on college students’ mental health

This paper uses several machine learning and statistical models to analyze data collected by the Faculty of Public Administration at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia in conjunction with an international consortium of universities, other higher education institutions, and students’ associations to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic and the increase in online learning impact college students' emotional wellbeing.

AIPSYCH: A Mobile Application-based Artificial Psychiatrist for Predicting Mental Illness and Recovery Suggestions among Students

Prevalence of psychiatric disorders among Toronto hospital workers one to two years after the SARS outbreak.

Incidence of new episodes of psychiatric disorders after the SARS outbreak were similar to or lower than community incidence rates, which may indicate the resilience of health care workers who continued to work in hospitals one to two years after theSARS outbreak.

Overfitting and undercomputing in machine learning

There has been extensive research in applying secondorder methods to fit neural networks and in conducting much more thorough searches in learning decision trees and rule sets, including gradient descent and greedy search, with great success.

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in Hong Kong in 2003: stress and psychological impact among frontline healthcare workers

The healthcare workers' psychological morbidity was best understood by the perceptions of personal vulnerability, stress and support in the workplace, shed light on the need for hospital administrators to be aware of the extent and sources of stress and psychological distress among frontline healthcare workers during disease outbreak.

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 from Patient with Coronavirus Disease, United States

It is found that the virus replicates to high titer in Vero-CCL81 cells and Vero E6 cells in the absence of trypsin, and it is hoped that open access to this reagent will expedite development of medical countermeasures.

The Extent of Transmission of Novel Coronavirus in Wuhan, China, 2020

The most plausible number of infections is in the order of thousands, rather than hundreds, and there is a strong indication that untraced exposures other than the one in the epidemiologically linked seafood market in Wuhan have occurred.

Physician Suicide in the Era of the COVID-19 Pandemic

The current understanding of the impact on physician suicide in the context of COVID-19 is discussed, as physicians who committed suicide were more likely to have benzodiazepines, barbiturates, or antipsychotics detectable in their blood.

Health care workers' mood worsened regardless of whether work was in person or remote, though TST was shorter for those working in person, and reduced TST and increased screen time before bed were associated with worse mood and screen time.

SMOTE: Synthetic Minority Over-sampling Technique

A combination of the method of oversampling the minority (abnormal) class and under-sampling the majority class can achieve better classifier performance (in ROC space) and a combination of these methods and the area under the Receiver Operating Characteristic curve (AUC) and the ROC convex hull strategy is evaluated.
