When levels of pollen in the air are higher, there is an increased risk of Covid-19 infection.
Wastewater surveillance takes advantage of two things: increasingly inexpensive genetic sequencing tools and the undeniable fact that almost everything that goes into our body eventually ends up in sewage.
New mRNA vaccine platforms, up-and-coming CRISPR diagnostics and other genomics-based tools may be the key to halting future pandemics.
Covid-19 vaccinations: Europe. Total doses given per 100 population. Click arrow for more countries.
The one-size-fits-all approach to testing by many western countries has failed.

Om te beginnen moeten we toe naar sneltests. Die zijn niet zo goed in het voorspellen van wie positief is, maar wel wie negatief is. First rapid Covid-19 test at home.
Het front tegen het virus lag in de eerste maanden van de crisis op de intensive cares van de ziekenhuizen, maar is inmiddels verschoven naar de testlocaties en laboratoria.
Two new studies have found that tests that look for the virus in samples of saliva are about as reliable as tests that require a sample from the back of the nose.
Although testing is an important and essential part of managing diseases like Covid-19, improper utilization can potentially have unintended negative consequences.
For people without symptoms, we also need broad availability of more rapid but sometimes less accurate screening tests. To detect outbreaks sooner and give people more confidence in their workplaces and schools.
Health authorities will collect samples from surfaces, workers’ clothes and hands, freezers, meat and seafood, sewage, bathrooms, and garbage trucks at the markets and test them within 24 hours. In addition, aerosol samples from poorly ventilated places within the markets will also be sent for testing.

But to defeat Covid-19, we also need to help the people who manage contact tracing programs measure their effectiveness, understand which factors are most impacting performance, and use that information to make improvements. That’s what this new course is about.
The worst could be still to come in the Covid-19 pandemic, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned, six months on from when the outbreak began.
