A three-phase population based sero-epidemiological study: Assessing the trend in prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 during COVID-19 pandemic in Jordan
The Jordan Ministry of Health launched three rounds of the nationwide sero-prevalence survey. Results revealed that seroprevalence dramatically increased over time, with only a tiny fraction of seropositive individuals in August (0.3%), to increase up to more than 20-fold in October (7.0%) and to reach one-third of the overall population exposed by the end of 2020 (34.2%)

Assessment of the risk of infection among Romanian physicians at the outbreak of the SARS CoV-2 pandemic
In March 2020, the WHO declared the SARS CoV-2 pandemic had an immediate and dramatic impact on Romanian physicians. A questionnaire was sent to Romanian physicians (n = 319) between 13 and 27 of March 2020. We found a significant relationship between the perceived level of fear and the risk of infection among respondents. Our data show that doctors working in urban areas considered the medical research on COVID-19 as clearer than those working in rural locations did. Pandemic preparedness should focus on measures that make medical practice safe (supplies, working protocols, experience sharing with experts/colleagues from other countries).

Epidemiological and co-infection characteristics of common human coronaviruses in Shanghai, 2015-2020: a retrospective observational study
The epidemic potential of common human coronaviruses (HCoVs) remains unclear. This study aimed to determine the epidemiological and co-infection characteristics of common HCoVs in individuals with influenza-like illness (ILI) and severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) It used data collected from patients admitted to nine sentinel hospitals with ILI and SARI from January 2015 through December 2020 in Shanghai, China.

Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 during air travel: a descriptive and modelling study
The risk of per-person infection during a 13 h air travel in economy class was 0.56 (95% CI 0.41‰-0.72‰). We found that the universal use of face masks on the flight, together with the plane's ventilation system, significantly decreased the infectivity of COVID-19 on an aircraft.

Estimating the impact of indoor relative humidity on SARS-CoV-2 airborne transmission risk using a new modification of the Wells-Riley model
A modified version of the Wells-Riley model was used to estimate the impact of relative humidity (RH) on the removal of respiratory droplets containing the SARS-CoV-2 virus. These effects were compared with the removal achieved by increased ventilation rate with outdoor air. The results of modeling showed that the relative impact of RH on the infection risk depended on the ventilation rate and the size range of virus-laden droplets.

Use of SMS-linked electronic surveys for COVID-19 case investigation and contact tracing - Marin County, CA, USA
People identified as COVID-19 cases received a short message service (SMS)-linked survey. Among 350 SMS-linked survey recipients, 85 (24%) responded and 4 (1%) reported contacts using the survey. An additional 303 contacts were reported during phone interviews. Phone interviews remained crucial for contact tracing. There was no meaningful difference between study arms in the proportion of contacts notified within 48 h.

Optimal control of high-rise building mechanical ventilation system for achieving low risk of COVID-19 transmission and ventilative cooling
High ventilation rates may result in high energy costs. Ventilative cooling (VC) requires high ventilation rates like DV, is an option to reduce the cooling energy consumption. When occupants follow protective measures, the proper settings of the mechanical ventilation system can reduce energy consumption by around 40%.

Transmission trend of the COVID-19 pandemic predicted by dendritic neural regression
In 2020, a novel coronavirus disease called COVID-19 became a global problem. The disease spread around the world quickly due to its powerful viral ability. To date, it has been relatively mild in China due to timely control measures. However, in other countries, the pandemic remains severe and protection and control policies are urgently needed. Researchers developed a novel dendritic neural regression (DNR) method to improve prediction performance.

Mitigating COVID-19 infection disease transmission in indoor environment using physical barriers
A barrier height of at least 60 cm above the desk surface is needed to effectively prevent the transmission of viruses. For workstations within 4m from the outlet, a 70 cm height is considered, and with a proper ventilation mode, it is shown that the barriers can reduce the risk of infection by 72%.

Impact of poor disease surveillance system on COVID-19 response in africa: Time to rethink and rebuilt
Africa has witnessed several outbreaks of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases such as Ebola virus disease. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has uncovered the region's inefficient and ineffective health surveillance systems. To ensure early disease outbreak identification and prompt public health interventions in Africa, the current disease surveillance and response mechanisms must be strengthened.
