Viruses, Vol. 12, Pages 194: Potential Maternal and Infant Outcomes from (Wuhan) Coronavirus 2019-nCoV Infecting Pregnant Women: Lessons from SARS, MERS, and Other Human Coronavirus Infections Viruses doi: 10.3390/v12020194 Authors: Schwartz Graham In early December 2019 a cluster of cases of pneumonia of unknown cause was identified in Wuhan, a city of 11 million persons in the People’s Republic of China. Further investigation revealed these cases to result from infection with a newly identified coronavirus, termed the 2019-nCoV. The infection moved rapidly through China, spread to Thailand and Japan, extended into adjacent countries through infected persons travelling by air, eventually reaching multiple countries and continents. Similar to such other coronaviruses as those causing the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), the new coronavirus was reported to spread via natural aerosols from human-to-human. In the early stages of this epidemic the case fatality rate is estimated to be approximately 2%, with the majority of deaths occurring in special populations. Unfortunately, there is limited experience with coronavirus infections during pregnancy, and it now appears certain that pregnant women have become infected during the present 2019-nCoV epidemic. In order to assess the potential of the Wuhan 2019-nCoV to cause maternal, fetal and neonatal morbidity and other poor obstetrical outcomes, this communi...

Oregon plans to send 140 ventilators to New York, Gov. Kate Brown said on Saturday, marking a show of solidarity between the two states on opposite ends of the nation. Both states have been struggling in a fight against the new virus, which causes the respiratory disease COVID-19. New York has more than 3,500 deaths and more than 113,000 total cases, according to a Saturday tally, while Oregon's death toll is at least 26. "New York needs more ventilators, and w e are answering their call for help,"…

This study summarized and analyzed the monitoring data from 1997, 1999, 2011, 2014, and 2017 of children living in Shanghai. In each monitoring year, the probability-proportional-to-size sampling technique was used to select 30 sampling units. In each sampling unit, one primary school was randomly selected. From each selected school, 40 8-10-year-old children were randomly recruited to measure thyroid volume (Tvol) and their household salt iodine intake. RESULTS: In 1997, 1999, 2011, 2014, and 2017, MUI of 8-10-year-old children was 228 μg/L, 214 μg/L, 1826 μg/L, 171 μg/L and 183 μg/L, and median Tvol (M...
