Fuzzy Modelling of Clinical and Epidemiological Factors for COVID-19

Poonam Reena


During this pandemic outbreak of COVID-19, the whole world is getting severely affected in respect of population health and economy. This novel virus has brought the whole world including the most developed countries to a standstill in a very short span like never before. The prime reason for this unexpected outburst of COVID-19 is lack of effective medicine and lack of proper understanding of the influencing factors. Here, authors aim to find the effect of epidemiological factors that influence its spread using a fuzzy approach. For the same, a total of 9 factors have been considered which are classified into Risk and Preventive factors. This fuzzy model supports to understand and evaluate the impact of these factors on the spread of COVID-19. Also, the model establishes a basis for understanding the effect of risk factors on preventive factors and vice versa. It is worth mentioning that this is the first attempt to analyze the effect of Clinical and Epidemiological factors with respect to COVID-19 using a fuzzy approach.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures. Follow the latest research on Glut1 deficiency with this feed.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.
