Real-time alerting system for COVID-19 and other stress events using wearable data
A Alavi et al, Nature Medicine, November 21, 2021

In a cohort of 3,318 participants, of whom 84 were infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), this system generated alerts for pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection in 67 (80%) of the infected individuals. Pre-symptomatic signals were observed at a median of 3 days before symptom onset.

Everyone Ages 18 and Older Should Get a Booster Shot
CDC, November 29, 2021

You may choose which COVID-19 vaccine you receive as a booster shot. Some people may?prefer?the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for?booster shots.

Covid-19: Omicron may be more transmissible than other variants and partly resistant to existing vaccines, scientists fear
I Torjesen, BMJ, November 29, 2021

Omicron, the SARS-CoV-2 variant responsible for a cluster of cases in South Africa and that is now spreading around the world, is the most heavily mutated variant to emerge so far and carries mutations similar to changes seen in previous variants of concern associated with enhanced transmissibility and partial resistance to vaccine induced immunity.

Show us the Data: Global COVID-19 Wastewater Monitoring Efforts, Equity, and Gaps
CC Naughton et al, MEDRXIV, November 28, 2021

Unlike COVID-19 case and mortality data, there was not a global dashboard to track wastewater monitoring of SARS-CoV-2 RNA worldwide. This study provides a one year review of the COVIDPoops19 global dashboard of universities, sites, and countries monitoring SARS-CoV-2 RNA in wastewater. Methods to assemble the dashboard combined standard literature review, direct submissions, and daily, social media keyword searches. Over 200 universities, 1,000 sites, and 55 countries with 59 dashboards monitor wastewater for SARS-CoV-2 RNA. However, monitoring is primarily in high-income countries (65 percent) with less access to this valuable tool in low and middle income countries (35 percent).
