Originating in Wuhan, the novel coronavirus, severe acute respiratory syndrome 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has astonished health-care systems across globe due to its rapid and simultaneous spread to the neighboring and distantly located countries. To gain the systems level understanding of the role of global transmission routes in the COVID-19 spread, in this study, we have developed the first, empirical, global, index-case transmission network of SARS-CoV-2 termed as C19-TraNet. We manually curated the…

Extensive Exploration of Ayurvedic Herbs to Prioritize Anti-Viral Drugs Alike Phytochemicals Against SARS-CoV-2 Using Network Pharmacology

A high confidence “Bi-regulatory network” of 115 APCs having ability to regulate protein targets in both virus and its host human-system is developed and analyzed, highlighting the importance of 6 AHs in eliciting the antiviral immunity at initial stages of infection.

Multi-scale mechanism of antiviral drug-alike phytoligands from Ayurveda in managing COVID-19 and associated metabolic comorbidities: insights from network pharmacology

A high-confidence “bi-regulatory network” of 115 PEPs having ability to regulate protein targets in both virus and its host human system is developed and analyzed.



The effect of human mobility and control measures on the COVID-19 epidemic in China

Real-time mobility data from Wuhan and detailed case data including travel history are used to elucidate the role of case importation in transmission in cities across China and to ascertain the impact of control measures.

Impact of international travel and border control measures on the global spread of the novel 2019 coronavirus outbreak

The results show that these measures likely slowed the rate of exportation from mainland China to other countries, but are insufficient to contain the global spread of COVID-19, and suggest that rapid contact tracing is essential both within the epicenter and at importation sites to limit human-to-human transmission outside of mainland China.

Substantial undocumented infection facilitates the rapid dissemination of novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2)

It is estimated that 86% of all infections were undocumented before the 23 January 2020 travel restrictions, which explains the rapid geographic spread of SARS-CoV-2 and indicates that containment of this virus will be particularly challenging.

A high-resolution human contact network for infectious disease transmission

High-resolution data of CPIs during a typical day at an American high school is obtained, permitting the reconstruction of the social network relevant for infectious disease transmission and suggested that contact network data are required to design strategies that are significantly more effective than random immunization.

The SARS outbreak serves as a reminder of the need for a strong national surveillance and response to infectious diseases, evidence-based international travel recommendations, and a global alert and response network to serve as a safety net when national surveillance fails.

Severe acute respiratory syndrome

The concerted and coordinated response that contained SARS is a triumph for global public health and provides a new paradigm for the detection and control of future emerging infectious disease threats.

A Novel Coronavirus from Patients with Pneumonia in China, 2019

Human airway epithelial cells were used to isolate a novel coronavirus, named 2019-nCoV, which formed a clade within the subgenus sarbecovirus, Orthocoronavirinae subfamily, which is the seventh member of the family of coronaviruses that infect humans.
