Since antiviral photodynamic therapy (aPDT) has been described as a new method for inhibiting viral infections, it is important to evaluate whether it can be used as a photoactivated disinfectant to control COVID-19. In this in silico study, SARS-CoV-2-SG was selected as a novel target for curcumin as a photosensitizer during aPDT to exploit its physi...

The Relationship between Benthic Macroinvertebrate Assemblages and Water Quality Parameters in the Sanyati Basin, Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe
This study aimed at assessing the structure of benthic macroinvertebrate communities in relation to physicochemical parameters along Sanyati basin shoreline in Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe. Six sites (S1 to S6) characterized by various human disturbances were sampled for physicochemical parameters and benthic macroinvertebrates from January to March 2018. We computed macroinvertebrate metrics and classified them into functional feeding groups (FFGs). A canonical correspondence analysis (CCA) triplot was constructed to assess species-physicochemical relations. Significant differences across the sampling sites were observed for pH,...
