In the effort to face the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) epidemic, which caused severe pneumonia requiring intensive care unit (ICU) admission in up to 15% of confirmed cases so far, many hospitals in Italy are setting up new ICUs, stopping nonurgent admissions, limiting the access to emergency rooms and wards, and providing separate pathways for suspected COVID-19 and other diseases. In parallel, it is mandatory to continue ensuring the provision of non-postponable treatments (eg, primary percutaneous coronary interventions or urgent/emergency cardiac surgical procedures).

n Zheng In a large-scale epidemic outbreak, there can be many high-risk individuals to be transferred for medical isolation in epidemic areas. Typically, the individuals are scattered across different locations, and available quarantine vehicles are limited. Therefore, it is challenging to efficiently schedule the vehicles to transfer the individuals to isolated regions to control the spread of the epidemic. In this paper, we formulate such a quarantine vehicle scheduling problem for high-risk individual transfer, which is more difficult than most well-known vehicle routing problems. To efficiently solve this problem, ...

adaani The breakthrough of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in Wuhan, a city of China, has damaged the status of health and quality of life. In the sequel of this epidemic or contagious disease, the patient experiences fever, chest paint, chills, a rapid heartbeat, breathing difficulties, pneumonia, and kidney failure. It has been suggested that this disease can spread through human-to-human transmission or by super spreading. By the help of the non-invasive fluid “saliva”, it is easy to detect the virus. This can help with the comfort of the patient as well as healthcare personnel. Under this perspec...
