On 21 February 2020, a resident of the municipality of Vo’, a small town near Padua (Italy), died of pneumonia due to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection 1 . This was the first coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19)-related death detected in Italy since the detection of SARS-CoV-2 in the Chinese city of Wuhan, Hubei province 2 . In response, the regional authorities imposed the lockdown of the whole municipality for 14 days 3 . Here we collected information on the… 
The early phase of the COVID-19 epidemic in Lombardy, Italy
TLDR
At the time of first case notification, COVID-19 was already widespread in the entire Lombardy region, and may explain the large number of critical cases experienced by this region in a very short timeframe.
SARS-CoV-2 Infection in Children in Southern Italy: A Descriptive Case Series
TLDR
The frequency of SARS-CoV-2 infection among all children aged <18 years in the Apulia region of southern Italy and the characteristics of the infected children were analyzed and it was unclear whether school reopening would enhance virus spread, leading the Italian government to develop guidelines for safeSchool reopening.
Ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 in Iran: challenges and signs of concern with under-reporting of prevalence and deaths
Many countries with an early outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 struggled to gauge the size and start date of the epidemic mainly due to limited testing capacities and a large proportion of undetected
Ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 in Iran: challenges and signs of concern
TLDR
Iran was one of the first countries outside of China to report infections with COVID-19 and a lack of, or relaxed, stringent intervention measures, during a period of highly under-reported spread would likely lead to the healthcare system becoming overwhelmed in the next few months.
Reduced Treatment Sensitivity of SARS-CoV-2 After Multigenerational Human-to-Human Transmission
TLDR
Analyzing the epidemiological characteristics and treatment effects of COVID-19 in Qingdao, Shandong Province, China, it is speculated that the treatment sensitivity of SARS-CoV-2 decreased within interpersonal transmission in the early stage of this epidemic.
The first familial cluster of the B.1.1.7 variant of SARS-CoV-2 in the northeast of Italy
TLDR
This report retrospectively rebuilt the pathway of infection and performed a virological analysis to make clear the very high attack rate and the great infective capacity of this B.1.1,1.7 variant of SARS-CoV-2.
COVID-19 Infection Pandemic: From the Frontline in Italy
TLDR
The COVID-19 Italian data during the first three months after the outbreak and the effect of lockdown is analyzed to investigate which patients are more vulnerable and also if other co-factors can account for this high fatality rate, since this pandemia is far from being resolved.
Evolution and epidemic spread of SARS-CoV-2 in Brazil
TLDR
New light is shed on the epidemic transmission and evolutionary trajectories of SARS-CoV-2 lineages in Brazil and evidence that current interventions remain insufficient to keep virus transmission under control in this country is provided.
Prevalence of COVID-19 and the Continued Citizen-Based Control in Japan.
TLDR
Clinical laboratory testing performed using the latest technology to detect SARS-CoV-2 RNA in a hospital in Yokohama, Japan finds large-scale testing of viral RNA would be useful for detecting asymptomatic virus carriers as is done in other countries, and could be carried out as a future measure for controlling COVID-19.
Infection in asymptomatic carriers of SARS-CoV-2 can interfere with the achievement of robust immunity on a population scale
TLDR
The strategy of letting people become naturally infected with SARS-CoV-2 to achieve herd immunity is flawed, and the first contact with the virus may not generate enough immunogenic stimulus to prevent a possible second infection.

Spread of SARS-CoV-2 in the Icelandic Population
TLDR
In a population-based study in Iceland, children under 10 years of age and females had a lower incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection than adolescents or adults and males and the proportion of infected participants identified through population screening remained stable for the 20-day duration of screening.
A pneumonia outbreak associated with a new coronavirus of probable bat origin
TLDR
Identification and characterization of a new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), which caused an epidemic of acute respiratory syndrome in humans in Wuhan, China, and it is shown that this virus belongs to the species of SARSr-CoV, indicates that the virus is related to a bat coronav virus.
Epidemiology and transmission of COVID-19 in 391 cases and 1286 of their close contacts in Shenzhen, China: a retrospective cohort study
TLDR
An analysis of data from the Shenzhen Center for Disease Control and Prevention identified 391 SARS-CoV-2 cases and 1286 close contacts shows that isolation and contact tracing reduce the time during which cases are infectious in the community, thereby reducing the R.
How will country-based mitigation measures influence the course of the COVID-19 epidemic?
TLDR
In this view, COVID-19 has developed into a pandemic, with small chains of transmission in many countries and large chains resulting in extensive spread in a few countries, such as Italy, Iran, South Korea, and Japan and it is unclear whether other countries can implement the stringent measures China eventually adopted.

TLDR
On 5 February 2020, in Yokohama, Japan, a cruise ship hosting 3,711 people underwent a 2-week quarantine after a former passenger was found with COVID-19 post-disembarking, and the delay-adjusted asymptomatic proportion of infections, along with the infections’ timeline were derived.

Estimating the effects of non-pharmaceutical interventions on COVID-19 in Europe
TLDR
The results show that major non-pharmaceutical interventions and lockdown in particular have had a large effect on reducing transmission and continued intervention should be considered to keep transmission of SARS-CoV-2 under control.
Temporal dynamics in viral shedding and transmissibility of COVID-19
TLDR
It is estimated that 44% (95% confidence interval, 25–69%) of secondary cases were infected during the index cases’ presymptomatic stage, in settings with substantial household clustering, active case finding and quarantine outside the home.
Coronavirus Infections in Children Including COVID-19
TLDR
Preliminary evidence suggests children are just as likely as adults to become infected with SARS-CoV-2 but are less likely to be symptomatic or develop severe symptoms, but the importance of children in transmitting the virus remains uncertain.
