Dynamic functional network connectivity associated with post-traumatic stress symptoms in COVID-19 survivors
Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) survivors may encounter prolonged mental issues, especially post-traumatic stress symptoms (PTSS) Despite manifesting a plethora of behavioral or mental issues in these survivors, previous studies illustrated that static brain functional networks of these survivors remain intact.
Perceived stress of the COVID-19 pandemic and adolescents' depression symptoms: The moderating role of character strengths
The negative effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on adolescents' mental health might be moderated by their existing psychological resources. A total of 617 adolescents were recruited and completed the online survey during the epidemic. Character strengths as a protective factor could buffer the effect of perceived stress of the co-incidence on their depression symptoms.

Prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 IgG antibodies and their association with clinical symptoms of COVID-19 in Estonia (KoroSero-EST-1 study)
In Estonia, during the first wave of COVID-19 total number of cases confirmed by PCR was 13.3/10,000. In the hotspot of Estonian epidemic, an island Saaremaa, the cumulative incidence was 166.1/10k. Of seropositive subjects 19.2% (14/73) had acute respiratory illness. Fever, diarrhea and absence of cough and runny nose were associated with seropositivity in individuals aged 50 or more years. IgG, but not neutralizing antibodies concentrations were higher if fever, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, chest pain or diarrhea was present, or hospitalization required. Focusing only on respiratory symptoms may delay accurate diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Perceptions on undertaking regular asymptomatic self-testing for COVID-19 using lateral flow tests: a qualitative study of university students and staff
Participants were motivated to regularly self-test as they wanted to know whether or not they were infected with SARS-CoV-2. Most reported that a negative test result did not change their behaviour, but it did provide them with reassurance to engage with permitted activities. Concerns about safety, convenience of testing and ability to do tests need to be addressed. Clear messages highlighting the benefits of regular testing for family, friends and society in identifying asymptomatic cases are needed.

Impact of remdesivir according to the pre-admission symptom duration in patients with COVID-19
Remdesivir has shown a significant reduction in the time to recovery in patients with COVID-19. However, the impact on mortality is still controversial and it is necessary to evaluate whether there is a specific subgroup of patients in whom active antiviral therapy also reduces the mortality. Pre-admission symptom duration of 4-6 days and ≤3 days was associated with a 1.5-2-5-fold increase in the mortality rate.

Evolution of COVID-19 symptoms during the first 12 months after illness onset
The RECoVERED Study is a prospective cohort study based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Participants aged≥18 years were enrolled following SARS-CoV-2 diagnosis via the local Public Health Service and from hospitals. 99/342(29%) had mild, 145/342 (42%) moderate, 56/342 severe and 42/342 critical disease. At 12 months after illness onset, two-fifths of participants (40.7%[95%CI=34.2-47.1] continued to report ≥1 symptoms. Recovery was slower in female compared to male participants. Female sex and obesity were the most important determinants of speed of recovery from symptoms.

Dynamics of a stochastic delay differential model for COVID-19 infection with asymptomatic infected and interacting people: Case study in the UAE
Public health science is increasingly focusing on understanding how COVID-19 spreads among humans. We propose a stochastic epidemic model, Susceptible-Infected-Asymptomatic-Quarantined-Recovered (SIAQR) One global positive solution exists with probability one in the model. To estimate the percentages of people who must be vaccinated to achieve herd immunity, least-squares approaches were used to estimate R0 from real observations in the UAE.
