    Estimated effectiveness of symptom and risk screening to prevent the spread of COVID-19

    Katelyn Gostic et al.
    Even in the best-case scenario, screening for COVID-19 misses well over half of infected travellers.

    Respiratory and intestinal epithelial cells exhibit differential susceptibility and innate immune responses to contemporary EV-D68 isolates

    Megan Culler Freeman et al.
    Parallel studies in primary human airway cells and stem cell-derived enteroids show that Enterovirus D-68 differentially infects and induces innate immune signaling in the respiratory and intestinal epithelium.

    Dynamically evolving novel overlapping gene as a factor in the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic

    Chase W Nelson et al.
    A novel, overlapping, putatively functional gene in SARS-CoV-2, ORF3d, is absent from close relatives of SARS-CoV-2 and may have contributed to the biology, emergence, or spread of the virus.

    Antimicrobial resistance and COVID-19: Intersections and implications

    Gwenan M Knight et al.
    COVID-19 will have an ongoing impact on antimicrobial resistance acquisition, transmission, and burden, requiring the close attention of researchers globally to generate a complete evidence base for the shifted dynamics.

    Sensitivity of ID NOW and RT–PCR for detection of SARS-CoV-2 in an ambulatory population

    Yuan-Po Tu et al.
    Although the ID NOW platform is less sensitive than RT–PCR for identification of SARS-CoV-2 infection, it provides high positive and negative predictive values in low-prevalence populations.

    Smartphone screen testing, a novel pre-diagnostic method to identify SARS-CoV-2 infectious individuals

    Rodrigo M Young et al.
    PCR testing for SARS-CoV-2 from samples taken from smartphone screens, Phone Screen Testing, provides a sensitive, cost-effective, simple, and non-invasive new method that could boost COVID-19 mass test screening.

    ACE2: Evidence of role as entry receptor for SARS-CoV-2 and implications in comorbidities

    Natalia Zamorano Cuervo, Nathalie Grandvaux
    Despite evidence that ACE2 is the receptor for SARS-CoV-2, its limited expression in the respiratory system challenges the uniqueness of this entry route and role in the multifaceted COVID-19.

    Early analysis of the Australian COVID-19 epidemic

    David J Price et al.
    An analysis of Australian case data demonstrates how the combined strategy of border measures, case targeted interventions, and social distancing effectively contained the first epidemic wave of COVID-19.
