Will Coronavirus Ever Go Away? Here ’s What One of the WHO’s Top Experts Thinks

Dr. Bruce Aylward has almost 30 years experience in fighting polio, Ebola and other diseases, and now, he’s turned his attention to stopping the spread of COVID-19. Aylward, the senior adviser to the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), is one of the world’s top officials in charge of fighting the coronavirus pandemic. The doctor, who lead a joint WHO mission to China in February to study the effectiveness of the coronavirus response in the country, has seen firsthand the measures Beijing took to fight the virus. Now he’s sharing what he learned with governments and communicating with the WHO response teams working to fight COVID-19 in virus epicenters around the globe. In an extensive teleconference interview with TIME from his office in Geneva, Aylward shared what he thinks needs to be done to stop the pandemic, and what the future might hold. The following excerpts from the conversation have been condensed and edited for clarity. Do you expect COVID-19 to continue to spread? We can get little glimpses into the future from places that are recently getting infected, places that aren’t infected, but also the places where it all started. And if you go back and look at China right now, they [identified the virus] in early January, they had a full on response, sort of threw everything at it, and it’s middle of March now and they estimate maybe end of March they’ll be coming out of it, so a full three months. When you look ...

CONCLUSIONS: Knowledge of the variations in RTAs has important clinical consequences for invasive and non-invasive arterial procedures. In addition, this variation provides a new interpretation of the embryology of the gonadal artery. Variations similar to our findings have not been previously reported. Therefore, different variations concerning the RTA should be considered during surgical and non-surgical evaluations. PMID: 32488854 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Gemignani S, Ricca V, Cardamone G Abstract This paper focuses on the integration between Mental Health Services and Primary Care in Italy, a topic that has been discussed for many years but still remains to be achieved nationwide. After a brief review of the scientific literature considering different models of integration, the experiences of three Italian Regions (Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany) are described and discussed, in order to detect different options to fulfill the needs of an adequate cooperation in this field of public health.

CONCLUSIONS: The psychometric properties of the Italian version are satisfactory and confirm that CPDI is a tool fast, non-intrusive, administered online, and therefore 'safe' in a phase with a high risk of contagion. It allows, like a psychic thermoscan, to quickly detect the needs of the population and propose equally rapid interventions. PMID: 32489191 [PubMed - in process]
