What Does the Science Tell Us?
We are proud to announce the launch of an interactive dashboard which allows users to sort publications by country, date, and publication type as well as search by keyword. Users can also filter to view only publications added in this week's update.
UPDATE 13 April 2021: Since our last update Tuesday, 6 April 2021, we have added 129 NEW publications for April (52 new), March (47 new), February (12 new), January (9 new), December (5 new), November (1 new), October (1 new), September (1 new), and July (1 new).
Individual months are located on the right-hand side, and new additions are marked in blue. To find the publication or topic of your interest, you can search in an individual month file using the Ctrl+F keys. All publications provide emerging evidence related to COVID-19 and
In addition to several international reviews, this update provides emerging evidence from the United States, Canada, Japan, Turkey, Italy, China, Saudi Arabia, India, Portugal, the Netherlands, Israel, Australia, Poland, Greece, Serbia, Colombia, Brazil, Iran, France, Sweden, Finland, the United Kingdom, Taiwan, Spain, Germany, Mexico, Denmark, and Korea.
Many new publications focus on COVID-19, pregnancy, and neonatal health. Multiple studies identified factors associated with COVID-19 severity in pregnant women, such as higher maternal age and parity. Another article reviewed evidence of severe COVID-19 in pregnant patients, providing guidelines on management and timing of delivery. While some studies found an association between SARS-CoV-2 infection during pregnancy and increased risk of preterm delivery, other studies found reduced rates of premature births during COVID-19 lockdowns. Others reviewed clinical manifestations of neonatal COVID-19 in order to identify predictors of disease severity.
Several new publications report the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19 on child and adolescent health. Topics include SARS-CoV-2 testing strategies in children, the identification and management of MIS-C, and preliminary evidence on “long COVID” in children. One study estimated when it is safe for children with asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection to undergo elective surgery based on cycle time values of PCR tests sampled over the span of 4 weeks. Others estimated the effect of school re-openings on the local growth rate of SARS-CoV-2 infections.
This is by no means an exhaustive list! Look out for our next update Tuesday, 20 April 2021. Currently, we have over 5,800 publications in the repository.
