COVID-19: Prospective Challenges and Potential Vaccines.
Conclusions: Emerging and re-emerging pathogenic RNA viruses pose a serious threat to human health. Little is known about the human-host adoptive mechanism for zoonotic transmission. Deep insights into the molecular mechanism responsible for the switching of animal or bird viruses to humans could provide target molecules or events to prevent such transmissions in the near future. Fast development and approval of efficacious and safe vaccines is key to the effort to provide preventive measures against COVID-19 and future viruses. However, the development and availability of a vaccine candidate is a time-consuming process and often can't be completed during an epidemic. Currently, several types of vaccines are under development, and most of them won't realistically be available in time for the present COVID-19 pandemic.

CONCLUSIONS: This single practice study showed total patient contact was similar over both sample periods, but most contact in 2020 was virtual. Further longitudinal multi-practice studies to confirm these findings and describe future consultation patterns are needed to inform general practice service delivery post-COVID-19.

Abstract Coronavirus is an enveloped, non-segmented, positive-polarity and single-stranded RNA virus. It has four types genera that infect mammals and birds, with only alpha and beta types found to affect humans with varying severity. A specific clade of beta coronaviruses are reported as lethal zoonotic viruses and have created major epidemic troubles, starting with the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2002, then the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) in 2012, and lastly Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in 2019. However, many neurological complications reported in COVID19 patients have highligh...
