SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19: revisiting the most important research questions
In February 2020, we highlighted the top nine important research questions on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 concerning virus transmission, asymptomatic and presymptomatic virus shedding, diagnosis,
SARS-CoV-2 and the Host Cell: A Tale of Interactions
The ability of a virus to spread between individuals, its replication capacity and the clinical course of the infection are macroscopic consequences of a multifaceted molecular interaction of viral


The origins of SARS-CoV-2: A critical review
The current scientific evidence that may help clarify the origin of SARS-CoV-2 is critically reviewed and a “laboratory escape” scenario and zoonotic emergence are considered.
Animal sales from Wuhan wet markets immediately prior to the COVID-19 pandemic
Here, 47,381 individuals from 38 species, including 31 protected species sold between May 2017 and November 2019 in Wuhan’s markets are document, supporting reformed opinion that pangolins were not likely the spillover host at the source of the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Timing the SARS-CoV-2 index case in Hubei province
It is shown that more than two-thirds of SARS-CoV-2–like zoonotic events would be self-limited, dying out without igniting a pandemic, highlighting the shortcomings of zoonosis surveillance approaches for detecting highly contagious pathogens with moderate mortality rates.
SARS-CoV-2 Infection Hospitalization Rate and Infection Fatality Rate Among the Non-Congregate Population in Connecticut
The overall COVID-19 infection hospitalization rate and infection fatality rate were estimated to be 6.86% and 0.95%, respectively, among community residents in Connecticut between March 1 and June 1, 2020, and there was variation in these rate estimates across subgroups.
Lessons from an active surveillance pilot to assess the pneumonia of unknown etiology surveillance system in China, 2016: the need to increase clinician participation in the detection and reporting of emerging respiratory infectious diseases
Assessment of reporting in China’s Pneumonia of Unknown Etiology passive surveillance system for emerging respiratory infections found most clinicians have limited awareness of and are not reporting to the PUE system.
