THE CURRENT pandemic stemming from severe acute respiratory syndrome –related coronavirus-2 began in December 2019 with an outbreak of pneumonia in Wuhan, China.1,2 Since the initial cases, the outbreak has spread rapidly around the world, presenting health care systems with a global health crisis. This enveloped virus has an incubation period up to 14 days and pro duces a spectrum of clinical disease in humans.3 It can vary from mild upper respiratory tract infection with fever and cough to severe acute respiratory distress syndrome that may progress to sepsis and multiorgan failure.

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).

18 years ago, in 2002, the world was astonished by the appearance of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), supported by a zoonotic coronavirus, called SARS-CoV, from the Guangdong Province of southern China. After about 10 years, in 2012, another similar coronavirus triggered the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) in Saudi Arabia. Both caused severe pneumonia killing 774 and 858 people with 8700 cases of confirmed infection for the former, and 2494 for the latter, causing significant economic losses. 8 years later, despite the MERS outbreak remaining in certain parts of the world, at the end of 2019, a new zoo...

Shia Wu Predicting the number of new suspected or confirmed cases of novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is crucial in the prevention and control of the COVID-19 outbreak. Social media search indexes (SMSI) for dry cough, fever, chest distress, coronavirus, and pneumonia were collected from 31 December 2019 to 9 February 2020. The new suspected cases of COVID-19 data were collected from 20 January 2020 to 9 February 2020. We used the lagged series of SMSI to predict new suspected COVID-19 case numbers during this period. To avoid overfitting, five methods, namely subset selection, forward selection, lasso ...
