This was an intense week where several countries initiated an out-of-lock-down initiative... Is it good, is it bad? We do not know yet. Therefore, in the meantime, let's have a COVID-special 7th STEMsocial distilled of the best articles posted within the STEMsocial community last week. Feel free to engage with the featured authors of the week! Engagement is strongly encouraged on STEMsocial.
Before moving on with the two best posts that have been selected from all the posts found by our curators last week, here are the most supported ones:
Our top choices
The COVID-19 is getting known more and more, although many unknowns are still in front of us. This post from @girolamomarotta (who is now the first author to be featured a second time in the STEMsocial distilled series) addresses the issues of people getting cured and then tested positive again, our knowledge on the virus dynamics (through in particular the ACE2 molecule) and the possible therapies.
On this second post on the COVID-19, we are happy to feature @pibara who provides a great analysis of the math behind the epidemic, at least from an engineer standpoint. He discusses the mortality rate and the step towards herd immunity. To lock-down or not to lock down, will it be sufficient? In any case, having the numbers at hand may be useful!
