The Role of IgA with the SARS-COV-2 Infection
On today’s episode we talk with Dr. Marie C. Bene. She is a professor of immunology and hematology at Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Nantes, France. Today we discuss her latest research on IgA and SARS-COV-2, the challenges in vaccine development for COVID-19, and how her principles are being used in current investigations.
The Possible Correlation between Phylogentic Analysis of COVID-19 and Country of Origin
On today’s episode we chat with Dr. Andres Castillo, a senior scientist in the molecular genetics department and the public health institute of Chile. Dr. Castillo and his team perform routine surveillance of viruses, bacteria, fungi and other pathogens. His article, published in the Journal of Medical Virology, is about the phylogenetic analysis of the first four cases of the COVID-19 virus in Chile.
The Late Arrival of COVID-19 in Africa and Comorbidity with HIV and TB Patients
On today’s episode, we talk with Dr. Jean B. Nachega. Dr. Nachega is associated with many distinguished universities around the world, including the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Centre for Infectious Diseases, Stellenbosch University, Cape Town, South Africa. Dr Nachega speaks about the topics in his recently published article titled Limiting the spread of COVID-19 in Africa: one size mitigation strategies do not fit all countries.
Severe Air Pollution and the Correlation to COVID-19
In this episode, we speak with Dr. Antonio Frontera, a cardiac electrophysiologist at the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan (at the epicenter of the Coronavirus outbreak in Italy). He talks about the topics in his article, Severe Air Pollution Links to Higher Mortality in COVID-19 Patients: the ‘Double-Hit’ Hypothesis, which is a compilation of his research on the correlation between cities with higher air pollution and COVID-19 outbreaks.
Exploring the Airborne Nature of COVID-19
Today’s guest, Dr. Julian W. Tang, a clinical virologist with the university hospitals in Leicester, UK, is considered an aerosol transmission expert. In this episode, we delve into why COVID-19 should be considered airborne and what should be done in response. Amongst other things, we also explore how ventilation could help curtail intra-hospital transmission, why the WHO needs to change its recommendations, and what Dr. Tang believes the trajectory of the virus will be.
Iran’s Creative Screening Response to COVID with Dr. Amir Davarpanah
Today, we are speaking with Dr. Amir Davarpanah, Assistant Professor of Radiology at Emory University. He recently published an article titled Novel Screening and Triage Strategy in Iran During Deadly Coronavirus Disease 2019 and in this episode, we hear about the inventive methodologies it documents. Using Iran as a case study, he talks about creative solutions to the issue of screening for COVID in resource- scarce countries and the value of humanitarian approaches during this time of crisis.
