The last few months have marked a notable surge in COVID-19. The disease has infected 10 million people around the world and has gained attention in the field of research. Allegedly originating in China, the virus has spread to nearly every country. The current study aims to analyze the potential spread of the coronavirus through rail transport by considering the case of the Wuhan-Beijing railway corridor in China. It has been found that approximately 43,000 people travel daily through this… Expand

Data Analytics and Mathematical Modeling for Simulating the Dynamics of COVID-19 Epidemic—A Case Study of India
TLDR
The model assessed that India has passed its peak duration of COVID-19 with more than 81% recovery and only a 1.59% death rate, validates the effectiveness of the developed models for ongoing pandemic assessment. Expand

Early epidemiological assessment of the transmission potential and virulence of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Wuhan City, China, January–February, 2020
TLDR
This study derives estimates of the transmissibility and virulence of COVID-19 in Wuhan City, China, by reconstructing the underlying transmission dynamics using multiple data sources using an ecological modeling approach suitable to infer epidemiological parameters with quantified uncertainty from partial observations collected by surveillance systems. Expand
A novel coronavirus outbreak of global health concern
TLDR
The detection of infection in at least one household cluster— reported by Jasper Fuk-Woo Chan and colleagues in The Lancet—and the recently documented infections in health-care workers caring for patients with 2019-nCoV indicate human-to-human transmission and thus the risk of much wider spread of the disease.

Early epidemiological assessment of the transmission potential and virulence of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Wuhan City: China, January-February, 2020
TLDR
Estimates of the transmissibility and virulence of COVID-19 in Wuhan City, China during January-February, 2020 are derived by reconstructing the underlying transmission dynamics using multiple data sources using an ecological modelling approach. Expand
The deadly coronaviruses: The 2003 SARS pandemic and the 2020 novel coronavirus epidemic in China
TLDR
It is clear that finding an effective antiviral and developing a vaccine are still significant challenges, as the SARS-CoV-2 virus has led to significant sociological, psychological and economic effects globally. Expand
Analysing the link between public transport use and airborne transmission: mobility and contagion in the London underground
TLDR
A link between public transport use and infectious diseases transmission is suggested and could be used to inform the development of non-pharmacological interventions that can act on preventing instead of curing infections and are, potentially, more cost-effective. Expand
Estimating the Unreported Number of Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Cases in China in the First Half of January 2020: A Data-Driven Modelling Analysis of the Early Outbreak
TLDR
The under-reporting of 2019-nCoV cases was likely to have occurred during the first half of January 2020 and should be considered in future investigation. Expand

TLDR
The disease is mild in most people; in some (usually the elderly and those with comorbidities), it may progress to pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and multi organ dysfunction and many people are asymptomatic. Expand
The Struggle Against MERS-CoV (The Novel Coronavirus).
TLDR
The sudden increase in the number of cases over the last month and the emergence of a number of clusters has clearly demonstarted to the scientific communities that something has happened to the MERS-CoV which has caused it to alter its behavior. Expand
