Using a real-world network to model localized COVID-19 control strategies
JA Firth et al, Nature Medicine, August 7, 2020

It remains unclear how real-world social networks could influence the effectiveness and efficiency of such approaches. To address this issue, we simulated control strategies for SARS-CoV-2 transmission in a real-world social network generated from high-resolution GPS data.

Genetic variability in the expression of the SARS-CoV-2 host cell entry factors across populations
LO Fernandez et al, Genes and Immunity, August 6, 2020

We devised a quantitative measure to estimate genetic determinants of ACE2 and TMPRSS2 expression and applied this measure to >2500 individuals. Our data show significant variability in genetic determinants of expression among individuals and between populations, and indicate a predisposition for lower expression levels in African populations.

Clinical Course and Molecular Viral Shedding Among Asymptomatic and Symptomatic Patients With SARS-CoV-2 Infection in a Community Treatment Center in the Republic of Korea
S Lee et al, JAMA Internal Medicine, August 6, 2020

In this cohort study of 303 patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection isolated in a community treatment center in Korea, 110 (36.3%) were asymptomatic at the time of isolation and 21 (19.1%) developed symptoms during isolation. The threshold values of reverse transcription–polymerase chain reaction in asymptomatic patients were similar to those in symptomatic patients.

Exposure Density and Neighborhood Disparities in COVID-19 Infection Risk: Using Large-scale Geolocation Data to Understand Burdens on Vulnerable Communities
B Hong, et al, ARXIV, August 4, 2020

We develop a generalizable method for assessing neighborhood activity levels by land use type using smartphone geolocation data over a three-month period covering more than 12 million unique users within the Greater New York area. We measure and analyze disparities in community social distancing by identifying patterns in neighborhood activity levels.

About COVID-19 GPH

COVID-19 GPH is an online, continuously updated, searchable database of published scientific literature, CDC and NIH resources, and other materials that captures emerging discoveries and applications of genomics, molecular and other precision medicine and precision public health tools in the investigation and control of COVID-19. Contents include PubMed records via an automated pubmed search algorithm, preprint records from NIH iCite, the relevant information from many media sources picked by experts, and linkages to contents from our curated PHGKB databases.



Genomics Precision Health: The use of pathogen and human genomics and advanced molecular detection methods in discovery, clinical and public health investigations involving COVID-19.
Non Genomics Precision Health: The use of big data, data science and machine learning methods (not involving genomics) in discovery, clinical and public health investigations involving COVID-19
