Public health efforts depend heavily on predicting how diseases like COVID-19 spread across the globe. Researchers from Florida Atlantic University’s College of Engineering and Computer Science in collaboration with LexisNexis...
Using flow visualization of emulated coughs and sneezes, researchers assessed the efficacy of facemasks in obstructing droplets. Loosely folded facemasks and bandana-style coverings provide minimal stopping-capability for the smallest aerosolized respiratory droplets.
March 25, 2020
Currently, there are no specific guidelines on the most effective materials and designs for facemasks to minimize the spread of droplets from coughs or sneezes to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19. While there have been...
A sample screenshot of the COVID-19 knowledge base dashboard under development. The screen shows four types of COVID-19 related entities, virus (blue), cell (pink), gene or genome (green), and disease or syndrome (red), and their relationships. All entities are Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) compatible for convenient knowledge sharing. The systems support 75 types of UMLS entities.

STAY 6 FEET APART. SIMULATED COUGH REVEALS THAT MAY NOT BE ENOUGH
March 15, 2020
These days, even the sound of a cough – one of the most common symptoms of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) – can cause panic and fear. People can get infected when a person coughs or sneezes as tiny droplets travel...
FAU re-tooled their facilities to leverage the opportunity to make face shields much faster than are currently being manufactured. They plan to share the blueprint for this personal protection equipment broadly with other academic institutions as well as industry. (Photo by Alex Dolce)
