The Value of Early Positive Nucleic Acid Test and Negative Conversion Time of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in the Clinical Outcome of COVID-19 Patients
This study focused on determining the factors associated with the length of time from symptom onset to the first positive nucleic acid test of throat swabs in COVID-19 patients, evaluating the effect of early positive nuclei acid detection on the disease severity and its significance in prognosis, and predicting the factorsassociated with the time from positive SARS-CoV-2 RNA test to negative conversion.
Ammonium Sulfate Addition Reduces the Need for Guanidinium Isothiocyanate in the Denaturing Transport Medium Used for SARS-COV-2 RNA Detection
Adding AS to the denaturing transport media reduced the need for high levels of GITC and improved SARS-COV-2 RNA detection without compromising virus inactivation.
A Network Dynamics Model for the Transmission of COVID-19 in Diamond Princess and a Response to Reopen Large-Scale Public Facilities
It is feasible to restore public transportation services and reopen large-scale public facilities if monitoring and testing can be in place and regardless of the transmission rate, joint interventions can prevent infections.
Assessment of COVID-19 Molecular Testing Capacity in Jordan: A Cross-Sectional Study at the Country Level
Assessment of the overall COVID-19 molecular testing capacity in Jordan as of April 2021 found that supply-chain challenges and shortages in staff were identified as potential obstacles hindering the exploitation of full molecularTesting capacity for CO VID-19 in the country.
Challenges Faced in Large-Scale Nucleic Acid Testing during the Sudden Outbreak of the B.1.617.2 (Delta)
This qualitative study aims to find the challenges based on empirical evidence from the perspectives of the different groups of people involved in the testing, and further explore possible strategies to improve the efficiency of large-scale nucleic acid testing.
Chlamydia-related knowledge, opinion to opportunistic testing, and practices of providers among different sexually transmitted infections related departments in hospitals in Shenzhen city, China
Providers among STI-related departments in hospitals in China showed a very high willingness to offer opportunistic CT screening, and targeted training in CT-related knowledge and practice is urgently needed.
Comparison of paper-based nucleic acid extraction materials for point-of-care testing applications
Cheap, rapid, simple and equipment-free nucleic acid extraction (NAE) is highly preferred for implementing nucleic acid detection at point-of-care (POC). Paper-based NAE materials have been
Epidemiological Characteristics of COVID-19 Outbreak in Yangzhou, China, 2021
The Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2 was highly infectious and has obvious clustering characteristics during the Yangzhou outbreak in China.


COVID-SCORE: A global survey to assess public perceptions of government responses to COVID-19 (COVID-SCORE-10)
Heterogeneity in responses was observed across age, gender, education and income with the greatest amount of heterogeneity observed between countries, and national scores correlated with respondents’ reported levels of trust in government and with country-level COVID-19 mortality rates.
Cold-chain food contamination as the possible origin of COVID-19 resurgence in Beijing
Cold-chain food contamination as the possible origin of COVID-19 resurgence in Beijing is investigated.
Interpretation of the Protocol for Prevention and Control of COVID-19 in China (Edition 7)
The primary content and key updates in the Protocol, including surveillance, multimethod monitoring, early warnings, and close contact tracing and management are described and the scientific rationale for revisions of the protocol is discussed.
Post-lockdown SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid screening in nearly ten million residents of Wuhan, China
The prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 infection in Wuhan was therefore very low five to eight weeks after the end of lockdown, and estimates of the prevalence of infection following the release of restrictions could inform post-lockdown pandemic management.
Reemergent Cases of COVID-19 — Dalian City, Liaoning Province, China, July 22, 2020
This outbreak in Dalian may have been caused by the introduction of an infectious source as it was found to be different from the virus that was prevalent in Wuhan in December 2019 that belonged to the S(A)-lineage and was likely not related to the continuous transmission of that virus.
