Corona Virus Disease 2019 and Paediatric Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: Global Experience and Provisional Guidance (March 2020) from the Paediatric IBD Porto Group of European Society of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition
Conclusions: Preliminary data for PIBD patients during COVID-19 outbreak are reassuring. Standard IBD treatments including biologics should continue at present through the pandemic, especially in children who generally have more severe IBD course on one hand, and milder SARS-CoV-2 infection on the other.

Authors: Naik R, Peden K Abstract Developing traditional viral vaccines for infectious diseases usually takes years, as these are usually produced either by chemical inactivation of the virus or attenuation of the pathogen, processes that can take considerable time to validate and also require the live pathogen. With the advent of nucleic-acid vaccines (DNA and mRNA), the time to vaccine design and production is considerably shortened, since once the platform has been established, all that is required is the sequence of the antigen gene, its synthesis and insertion into an appropriate expression vector; importantly...
Conclusions: As policymakers face the very difficult question of the necessity and effectiveness of social distancing across the U.S., counties where the policies have been imposed have effectively increased social distancing and have seen slowing the spread of COVID-19. These results might help policymakers to make the public understand the risks and benefits of the lockdown. PMID: 32636878 [PubMed]
