The first confirmed case of COVID-19 in Tanzania: recommendations based on lesson learned from China
A number of recommendations are put forth including establishing more testing points, discouraging all forms of public and religious gatherings, and tailoring a unique model for lockdown and social distancing to prevent further spread of the disease.
COVID-19: What we’ve learned so far
If the value of R is >1, the number of cases will increase, starting an epidemic and not all contacts will be infected and the average number of secondary cases per infectious case will be less than Ro.
How is COVID-19 Being Contained in China? An Observational Study on the Local Level
It is found that nonpharmaceutical interventions, especially the physical distancing measures, are the primary tools used to contain the spread of the virus and these actions keep changing to adapt to the situation of the local cases and the directions from the central government.

International Public Health Responses to COVID-19 Outbreak: A Rapid Review
According to the results of the management decisions of some governments on quarantining, social isolation, screening methods, and flight suspensions due to the severity and anonymity of COVID-19, it is highly assured that these strategies would be the most successful approaches to confront the present pandemic.


The effect of travel restrictions on the spread of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak
The results suggest that early detection, hand washing, self-isolation, and household quarantine will likely be more effective than travel restrictions at mitigating this pandemic, and sustained 90% travel restrictions to and from mainland China only modestly affect the epidemic trajectory unless combined with a 50% or higher reduction of transmission in the community.
Early evaluation of transmission control measures in response to the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak in China
The implementation of transmission control measures slowed the dispersal of infection from its origin in Wuhan city and reduced the numbers of cases reported during the early stages of the epidemic in hundreds of other Chinese cities.
Impact of international travel and border control measures on the global spread of the novel 2019 coronavirus outbreak
The results show that these measures likely slowed the rate of exportation from mainland China to other countries, but are insufficient to contain the global spread of COVID-19, and suggest that rapid contact tracing is essential both within the epicenter and at importation sites to limit human-to-human transmission outside of mainland China.
Epidemiology and Transmission of COVID-19 in Shenzhen China: Analysis of 391 cases and 1,286 of their close contacts
This work shows that heightened surveillance and isolation, particularly contact tracing, reduces the time cases are infectious in the community, thereby reducing R.CoV-2's overall impact, however, its overall impact is uncertain and highly dependent on the number of asymptomatic cases.
