Emerging infectious diseases are existential threats to human health and global stability. The recent outbreaks of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 have rapidly formed a global pandemic, causing hundreds of thousands of infections and huge economic loss. The WHO declares that more precise measures to track, detect and isolate infected people are among the most effective means to quickly contain the outbreak. Based on trajectory provided by the big data and the mean field theory, we establish an…

Risk-Aware Identification of Highly Suspected COVID-19 Cases in Social IoT: A Joint Graph Theory and Reinforcement Learning Approach
An adaptive scheme by relying on the graph embedding technique during the state representation and reinforcement learning in the training phase can beneficially reduce the epidemiological reproduction rate of the infection.
A framework for monitoring movements of pandemic disease patients based on GPS trajectory datasets
A framework for monitoring Movements of Pandemic Disease Patients and predicting their next geographical locations given the recent trend of infected COVID-19 patients absconding from isolation centres is provided and it is shown that it is possible to determine the Stay Points (hot spots) of a CO VID-19 patient.
A novel social distancing analysis in urban public space: A new online spatio-temporal trajectory approach
This paper proposes a new online multi-pedestrian tracking approach for spatio-temporal trajectory and its application to multi-scale social distancing measuring and analysis, and evaluated the performance of the proposed tracking method using the public dataset MOT16 benchmark.
Contextual Contact Tracing based Spatio Enhanced Compartment Modelling & Spatial Risk Assessment
The current situation of COVID-19 appears as a paradigm shift that seems to have farreaching impacts on the way humans will now continue with their daily routine. The overall scenario highlights the
Contextual contact tracing based on stochastic compartment modeling and spatial risk assessment
A contact tracing-based stochastic compartment model as a baseline is implemented, to further modify the existing setup to include the spatial risk, and it is highlighted that the inclusion of spatial context tends to send more individuals into quarantine which reduces the overall spread of infection.
Continuous learning and inference of individual probability of SARS-CoV-2 infection based on interaction data
Compared to traditional contact tracing methods, this approach significantly reduces the screening and quarantine required to search for the potential asymptomatic virus carriers by as much as 94%, and is validated using the individualized bidirectional SEIR model to simulate the contagion process.
Data Mining Techniques for Pandemic Outbreak in Healthcare
The goal of this study was to analyze the algorithms from the data mining method that had been implemented for pandemic outbreaks in past research and shows that Naive Bayes and Decision Tree are appropriate algorithms and give more than 90% accuracy in both the pandemic and healthcare.
Nonlinear Autoregressive Exogenous ANN Algorithm-Based Predicting of COVID-19 Pandemic in Tamil Nadu
A novel idea is proposed by modeling nonlinear autoregressive exogenous (NARX) ANN to predict the number of COVID-19 positive cases, discharges, and deaths soon in Tamil Nadu to help the government take the necessary administrative decisions for healthcare preparedness and management.
Bayesian Inference of COVID-19 Spreading Rates in South Africa
The results suggest that due to the likely effect of the national lockdown, community level transmissions of COVID-19 are slower than the original imported case driven spread of the disease.


Aerosol and surface stability of HCoV-19 (SARS-CoV-2) compared to SARS-CoV-1
The aerosol and surface stability of HCoV-19 is analyzed and it is compared with SARS- coV-1, the most closely related human coronavirus.
Clinical Characteristics of 138 Hospitalized Patients With 2019 Novel Coronavirus-Infected Pneumonia in Wuhan, China.
The epidemiological and clinical characteristics of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)-infected pneumonia in Wuhan, China, and hospital-associated transmission as the presumed mechanism of infection for affected health professionals and hospitalized patients are described.
Clinical Characteristics of Coronavirus Disease 2019 in China
During the first 2 months of the current outbreak, Covid-19 spread rapidly throughout China and caused varying degrees of illness, and patients often presented without fever, and many did not have abnormal radiologic findings.
Co-infection with SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza A Virus in Patient with Pneumonia, China
We report co-infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and influenza A virus in a patient with pneumonia in China. The case highlights possible co-detection of known
Coinfection with SARS-CoV-2 and influenza A virus
A case of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and influenza A virus coinfection is reported in patients with new-onset fever or respiratory tract symptoms.
Contact Transmission of COVID-19 in South Korea: Novel Investigation Techniques for Tracing Contacts
Methods that can objectively verify the patient’s claims (medical facility records, Global Positioning System, card transactions, and closed-circuit television) were used for the recent ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 contact investigations in South Korea.
Covert coronavirus infections could be seeding new outbreaks
Scientists are rushing to estimate the proportion of people with mild or no symptoms who could be spreading the pathogen Clostridium difficile.
Incubation Period and Other Epidemiological Characteristics of 2019 Novel Coronavirus Infections with Right Truncation: A Statistical Analysis of Publicly Available Case Data
The incubation period falls within the range of 2–14 days with 95% confidence and has a mean of around 5 days when approximated using the best-fit lognormal distribution and it is recommended that the length of quarantine should be at least 14 days.
