  author={Tsen-Fang Tsai and Ting-Yu Yeh and Gregory P. Contreras},
This study presents the first evidence that full vaccination against COVID-19 suppresses emergent mutations of SARS-CoV-2 delta variants. An evolution algorithm, Tajima D test with a threshold value as -2.50, can provide a promising tool to forecast new COVID-19 outbreaks.

COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Whether the administration of booster doses of COVID-19 vaccines is urgently needed to control the pandemic is discussed and it is concluded that, at present, optimizing the immunity level of wealthy populations cannot come at the expense of low-income regions that suffer from vaccine unavailability.
Real-Word Effectiveness of Global COVID-19 Vaccines Against SARS-CoV-2 Variants: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
The meta-analysis shows that the current vaccines that are used globally could prevent COVID-19 infection and restrict the spread of variants to a great extent and support maximizing vaccine uptake with two doses.
Clinical Outcomes of Adult Patients Hospitalized with COVID-19 after Vaccination
The study showed that COVID-19 related hospitalization after vaccination may occur to a small percentage of patients, mainly those who are partially vaccinated, however, the findings underline that prior vaccination, even when partial, is associated with a decreased risk of death.
COVID‐19 detection with severity level analysis using the deep features, and wrapper‐based selection of ranked features
Various pretrained networks, namely GoogLeNet, ResNet18, SqueezeNet, ShuffleNet, EfficientNetB0, and Xception, are used as feature extractors for the COVID‐19 detection with severity level analysis and it is revealed that the method generalized well on unseen data.

Transmission event of SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant reveals multiple vaccine breakthrough infections
The SARS-CoV-2 variant responsible for 6 cases of vaccine breakthrough was identified at events surrounding a wedding outside of Houston, TX and two patients from India, likely transmitted the Delta variant to other guests.
Statistical method for testing the neutral mutation hypothesis by DNA polymorphism.
It is suggested that the natural selection against large insertion/deletion is so weak that a large amount of variation is maintained in a population.
Viral transmission and evolution dynamics of SARS-CoV-2 in shipboard quarantine
The findings indicate that the 11083G > T mutation of SARS-CoV-2 spread during shipboard quarantine and arose through de novo RNA recombination under positive selection pressure.
