To the lockdown consequences and drug trials
From disease symptoms to asymptomatic transmission modeling based on mobile data
Here we review why cutting down tropical forests results in new epidemics, where they are predicted to start, and how to reduce the likelihood of virus transmission from bats to humans
How does human intervention in wild habitat affect the emergence of new pandemics? We explain this on the example of epidemics that have spread from bats. In the first part of the review, we discuss whether bats are “special” as hosts of the viruses, and how the environment affects the likelihood of infection spillover
From virus binding to modeling exit from lockdown
Reviewing the literature on the Spanish flu in 1918–1919 to discuss how the start and duration of quarantine affected mortality, and why at some places the epidemic re-emerged after the control measures were lifted
Though we do not specialize in epidemic research, we systematically search scientific literature on a given topic and visualize the connections between publications. In these networks, called science maps, we distinguish clusters that represent meaningful research fields, and describe them in the reviews. Here we explain the details of our procedure.
