    Abstract          The patterns for fertility mortality, migration, and population are instrumental to guide investment in infrastructure to accommodate population shifts. This study uses other statistical models and the researchers own propriety model to demonstrate the effect of education and contraception on the completed cohort fertility at age 50 years (CCD50), which is the average number of children born to an female from a specific age (15-49 years). This study uses the length of time to ...

    Abstract This paper discusses the measures taken in Guangdong, China (most populated province in the country) to curb the spread of COVID-19. Many of the region's recent draconian measures are based on its experience from fighting the 2003 SARS outbreak. Strict regulations combined with extensive healthcare measures resulted in significant day-on-day infection ratio drop offs starting Feb 1st. Introduction China’s early spike in COVID-19 cases makes it a valuable source of information for other ...

    AbstractThe psychological and social effects of the COVID-19 pandemic will persist for years after the pandemic itself has subsided. Recent studies have shown that the pandemic is associated with distress, fear of contagion, anxiety, depression, and insomnia amongst the general population and health care professionals. This may lead to the exacerbation of stress related substance abuse and mood disorders. Both are associated with suicidal behavior. An increase in suicides is a likely consequence...

    Abstract This study looks at the effect of microplastic fibers (MPF) on American lobster, Homarus americanus. The life span, molting patterns, and oxygen consumption of larval stages 1-3 and post-larval stage 4 are tested. Overall the results show that the effects of MPF on American lobster larvae are dependent upon the MPF concentration, the stage of the larvae, and the presence of other food. Introduction  Microplastics are any plastic particle less than 5mm in diameter. Most are produced from...

    AbstractThis is a retrospective study revealing mortality information about 52 critically illadult patients diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 in Wuhan Jin Yin-tan hospital. Symptom, laboratory, comorbidity and outcome data was gathered about these ICU patients. Overall findings noted significant mortality for ill individuals over 65 years of age and a frequent need for mechanical respiration.Introduction  The initial spread of the now global SARS-CoV-2 virus was traced back to areas around Wuhan, China....

    Abstract The U.S. used the northern Marshall Islands to test nuclear weapons between 1946 and 1958. The radioactivity may still be present from the decay of cesium-137. The authors studied six islands. All islands had radioactive islands that were within safety standards except for Bikini Island. Some islands still had some radioactivity. Bikini Island had excessive and unsafe gamma radiation. Further research needs to find if radiation exposure through food ingestion or other ways make habitati...

    Aims In this study, the researchers analyzed U.S data about injuries inflicted by police and private security guards to understand trends over time and by race/ethnicity. Introduction Police violence/brutality is a medical and public health concern. Public health and medical professionals have called for more research about the health consequences of policing. Recent research has examined relationships between racial discrimination by police on health, as well as how public health surveillance c...

    IntroductionViruses from wildlife hosts have caused emerging high-impact diseases such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), Ebola, and influenza which are major threats to public health. The emergence of these diseases occurred when an animal virus switched host into humans and was transmitted within human populations. The importance of this host switching is shown by recent, highly infectious strains of H5N1 influenza A, which spilled over from birds and caused hundreds of cases and som...

    IntroductionA novel coronavirus has caused a viral pneumonia outbreak in China. There is evidence of person-to-person transmission. But, the researchers have not yet seen reports of COVID-19 transmission from an asymptomatic carrier. The carrier would have a normal chest computed tomography (CT).AimsThe researchers report a possible transmission of COVID-19 through an asymptomatic carrier.MethodsIn January 2020,  the physicians admitted 5 symptomatic and 1 asymptomatic family members. The sympto...

    AbstractStudies have shown that the 2019-nCoV virus primarily infects host cells with the ACE2 receptor. This receptor allows the virus to enter the host cell. Using RNA sequencing data, the researchers found that many cells in the oral mucosa (mucous membrane) express ACE2. Many receptors were specifically found in the epithelial cells of the tongue. This indicates that cells in the oral cavity are possibly at high risk for 2019-nCoV infection.AimsThe researchers aim to study if the virus could...
