COVID-19 | Coronavirus: Epidemiology, Pathophysiology, Diagnostics

HELP US GET OUR OWN FILMING STUDIO --

Ninja Nerds,
What is Corona virus? What is COVID-19? Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) caused by SARS-COV2 is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans.
Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.  Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans. It is believed that COVID-19 was transmitted from pangolin to humans (current theory).
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death (WHO, 2020).
Ninja Nerd Lectures has compiled the most up to date and recent data on COVID-19 as of March 15, 2020. Please follow along with this lecture to understand the origin and zoonosis of COVID-19, the routes of transmission, epidemiology (current as of 3/15/2020), pathophysiology, and diagnostic tests used to identify COVID-19.
As new information and research is published we will continue to provide updates on COVID-19 and ensure all of our viewers are kept up to date on the most recent data.

COVID-19 | Coronavirus: Epidemiology, Pathophysiology | APRIL UPDATE

Ninja Nerds,
Join us for our lecture on COVID-19 where Ninja Nerd Science will go into detail on the virology, epidemiology, and pathophysiology/pathology of COVID-19. This is our April update on our previous lecture to keep all of our viewers informed on the new research and publications that have been released on COVID-19. Please be aware— This lecture is up to date as of April 17, 2020.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans.  In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19.

COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.

COVID-19 (SARS Coronavirus 2) - timeline, pathophysiology (ARDS), coronavirus life cycle, treatment

The World health organization (WHO) has declared COVID-19 a pandemic. COVID 19 stands for coronavirus disease 2019 and is caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals including cats and bats. Common human coronavirus typically causes a URTI, like the common cold. Most people get infected with one or more of these viruses at some point in their lives. The human coronavirus infection typically resolves on its own with basic rest while feeling miserable.

Rarely, the coronaviruses that infect animals can evolve and become a new human coronavirus which then infect and spread between people. Important examples of these type of coronavirus include severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus, SARS CoV for short in 2003 and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus also known as MERS.

Coronavirus COVID-19 | Viral Structure & Pathogenesis

Welcome to this video on the COVID-19 disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. In this tutorial we will discuss:

- Structure of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its structural glycoproteins
- ACE-2 receptor interaction and mechanisms of host cell entry
- Pathogenesis and mechanism of ARDS
- Typical chest radiograph and CT appearances

We hope you have found this video informative - see references below for further reading.

Clinical Manifestations of SARS - Coronavirus (SARS-COV)

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a severe form of pneumonia. SARS coronavirus, also known as SARS-CoV, causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).
Coronaviruses commonly cause infections in both humans and animals. There have been two self-limiting SARS outbreaks to date, which resulted in a highly contagious and potentially life-threatening form of pneumonia.
The virus was present in the masked palm civet. From the civet, it went into a human and then kept spreading by the human to human interaction.
Usually, the coronavirus causes upper respiratory tract infections.
However, the SARS-coronavirus causes lower respiratory tract infection (atypical pneumonia) and viremia.
Dr. Mobeen Syed discusses the clinical manifestation of SARS.
After 2-10 days of exposure to the virus, the patient starts getting chills, malaise, low-grade fever, dry cough, and dyspnea. Usually, it resolves.
If it does not resolve and the patient dies, then the lower respiratory tract shows a lot of alveolar exudates, necrosis, and giant cells.

The following topics have discussed in the video:
* Introduction to SARS
* Transmission of SARS-coronavirus
* Clinical manifestations of SARS
* Clinical features of unresolved SARS

Management
Supportive management

Antivirals for COVID-19
According to the WHO
There are no known effective antivirals for coronavirus infections.
• Various candidates with potential anti-nCoV activity are being evaluated for clinical trial protocols (see module 15).
• Use of unregistered or unproven therapeutics for nCoV should be done under strict monitoring and ethical approval.
– Use WHO Monitored Emergency Use of Unregistered Interventions (MEURI) framework (see module 15)

Remdesivir




Remdesivir cripples an enzyme called RNA polymerase that is used by many viruses to copy themselves; it does not specifically target SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Article being critical of the remdesivir efficacy



Chloroquine
Antimalarial and HIV medicine
Makes the cell organelle less acidic (raises their pH which interferes with the virus replication.)
It also interferes with the terminal glycosylation of the ACE2 receptor negatively influencing the virus receptor binding

Introduction to Coronaviruses (SARS, MERS, COVID-19): Hosts, Symptoms, History of SARS and MERS

Lesson on Coronaviruses (SARS, MERS, COVID-19): Viral subtypes, Coronaviruses are a family of RNA viruses that are important viral pathogens in animals and humans. There are four classifications of coronaviruses, with two that are important causes of infections in humans. Coronaviruses can cause both respiratory tract infections and gastrointestinal infections in adults and children. Signs and symptoms are variable dependent on the coronavirus involved. Animals can be both infected and be hosts for the coronaviruses. Transmission of these viruses between species can lead to mutations and development of novel coronaviruses, which can lead to human epidemics and outbreaks. In this lesson, we also discuss a brief history of past human outbreaks and epidemics involving coronaviruses, including severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and the new Wuhan coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

Coronavirus-Microbiology(Morphology,Pathogenesis,Pathophysiology,Laboratory Diagnosis)[blackboard]

Coronaviruses are large, enveloped RNA viruses. Coronaviruses were so named for the crown-like appearance of their virions on electron microscopy. The human coronaviruses cause common colds, may cause lower respiratory tract infections, and have been implicated in gastroenteritis in infants. Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)-associated coronavirus (SARS-CoV) is a described coronavirus.
The coronaviruses are confined strictly to the mucosal cells of the respiratory tract. These viruses typically cause infections in the upper respiratory tract.
