- Animal Models to Study Neurologic Manifestations of COVID-19: SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing the COVID-19 pandemic, has been linked to a variety of neurologic symptoms in humans, ranging from mild (loss of smell or taste) to potentially fatal (meningoencephalitis or stroke). Surveys and case studies have been conducted to better understand the neurological effects of SARS-CoV-2.
- Eliminating Potential Effects of Other Infections during Selection of Nonhuman Primates for COVID-19 Research: Nonhuman primates, such as macaques, are a preferred model for studying the pathogenesis and immunology of SARS-CoV-2 virus, the etiological agent of COVID-19. This study can provide significant insights into our understanding of the virus and help in finding measures for prevention and control of this pandemic disease.
- Computational design of candidate multi-epitope vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 targeting structural (S and N) and non-structural (NSP3 and NSP12) proteins: The COVID-19 pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 has had a devastating impact worldwide, leading to the death of over 6 million people. Scientists are working hard to develop effective therapeutic solutions and vaccination strategies to combat the virus.
- Eliminating Potential Effects of Other Infections during Selection of Nonhuman Primates for COVID-19 Research: Nonhuman primates (NHP) can provide valuable insights into the pathogenesis and immunology of SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic. Macaques are the preferred model for studying this virus due to their similarity in symptoms and response to infection.

- Effect of daily new cases of COVID-19 on public sentiment and concern: Deep learning-based sentiment classification and semantic network analysis: This study explored the influence of daily new case videos posted by public health agencies (PHAs) on TikTok in the context of COVID-19 normalization during the 2022 Shanghai lockdown. We crawled all user comments of videos posted by Healthy China on TikTok with the Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication model to analyze public sentiment and concerns.
- The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic causes a dysfunctional dietary behavior: A German cross-sectional study: This nationwide cross-sectional study investigated the impact of psychological burden on dietary patterns, with 7525 participants responding to a questionnaire.
- Ulceration by Nocardia Otitidiscaviarum: A case study: Researchers present a case of Nocardiosis in a post-COVID-19 patient that was successfully managed with cotrimoxazole and linezolid. Early diagnosis and treatment were essential for preventing the spread of the infection and improving the patient’s outcome.
- Effectiveness of facial palsy protocol among patient with mucormycosis following COVID-19: A case study: A 41-year-old male with diabetes and facial palsy post COVID-19 Associated Mucormycosis improved after a 4-week physiotherapeutic intervention of ice therapy, Mime therapy, Facial Soft Tissue Manipulation, and Facial Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Stimulation, as shown by House-Brackman Facial Grading Scale scores.
- Semen parameters and male reproductive potential are not adversely affected after three or more months of recovery from COVID-19 disease: SARS-CoV-2 may affect the male reproductive system due to the presence of ACE and TMPRS2 receptors. Studies have shown that SARS-CoV-2 is not present in semen, but there is evidence that COVID-19 can impair semen parameters such as sperm concentration, motility, and DNA fragmentation.
