Covid-19 related LOckdown: Shift in Exposures to neighbourhood environments and changes in Physic...

A lockdown state implies radical changes in our lifestyle, especially physical activity (PA), while PA plays a central role in maintaining an adequate health status, counteracting the negative consequences of numerous diseases. We aim to investigate the impact of lockdown (and quarantine) on PA patterns based on retrospective data. We will analyse the intra-individual changes in PA patterns of participants stratified in two specific subgroups of interest, namely positive cases and their household members as a result of the lockdown/quarantine measures in place, with respect to the partici...

A dynamic model of the COVID-19 tuned for different countries: a systems-biological tool for the ...

A dynamic model of COVID-19 epidemics recently developed (video: https://youtu.be/lbsqJ1_WvmE, model: https://jjj.bio.vu.nl/models/westerhoff1/simulate/, ref: https://medrxiv.org/cgi/content/short/2020.03.29.20045039v1) will be tuned for different countries to analyze the effect of different measures in the anticipation of next epidemics. Models will be available for online simulations at JWS Online (https://jjj.bio.vu.nl/models/westerhoff1/simulate/), and used for the development of computer tutorials for systems biological studies.

DICO-Lux: DIgital Covid-19 Observatory In LUXembourg: An Open Tool For SARS-COV-2 Crisis Manageme...

Monitoring online activities for public health purposes has been investigated since the first days of the digital epidemiology field early 2010s, with the objective of capturing health-related trends and model disease outbreaks. Most famous examples of internet surveillance were developed for the flu, influenza AH1N1, the Zika virus or Ebola. We now have the opportunity to leverage both the digital data available online and the appropriate Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Text Mining methods to fight the Covid-19 pandemic. The main objective of the DICO-LUX project is to rapidly d...

Innovative end-to-end solution for respiratory diseases detection and genotyping

Our innovative end-to-end solution for respiratory diseases detection and genotyping is composed of 3 main compoenets as follows: First, we want, through a multiplex qPCR assay, to target and differentiate in priority COVID-19, SARS, H5N1, H1N1 (devastating diseases) from seasonal flu (under control). Second, we propose to develop an NGS and SANGER assay for the following Intended uses: Respiratory diseases Genotyping, Screening, Monitoring, Quasispecies identification, Epidemiological studies. Third, we target to establish a large COVID-19 and SARS worldwide database , compare patient ...
