A guide to the pandemic economy: essential reading about the long-term implications of our current crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic has unleashed a firehose of information (much of it wrong) and an avalanche of opinions (many of them ill-founded). Most of us are so distracted by the everyday awfulness that we don't see the broader issues in play. In this book, economist Joshua Gans steps back from the short-term chaos to take a clear and systematic look at how economic choices are being made in response to COVID-19. He shows that containing the virus and pausing the economy—without letting businesses fail and people lose their jobs—are the necessary first steps.

This volume presents a comprehensive account of the COVID-19 pandemic, also known as the novel coronavirus pandemic, as it happened. Originating in China in late 2019, the COVID-19 outbreak spread across the entire world in a matter of three to four months. This volume examines the first responses to the pandemic, the contexts of earlier epidemics and the epidemiological basics of infectious diseases. Further, it discusses patterns in the spread of the disease; the management and containment of infections at the personal, national and global level; effects on trade and commerce; the social and psychological impact on people; the disruption and postponement of international events; the role of various international organizations like the WHO in the search for solutions; and the race for a vaccine or a cure. Authored by a medical professional and an economist working on the frontlines, this book gives a nuanced, verified and fact-checked analysis of the COVID-19 pandemic and its global response. A one-stop resource on the COVID-19 outbreak, it is indispensable for every reader and a holistic work for scholars and researchers of medical sociology, public health, political economy, public policy and governance, sociology of health and medicine, and paramedical and medical practitioners. It will also be a great resource for policymakers, government departments and civil society organizations working in the area.

In a gripping, accessible narrative, a veteran science journalist lays out the shocking story of how the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic happened and how to make sure this never happens again Over the last 30 years of epidemics and pandemics, we learned nearly every lesson needed to stop this coronavirus outbreak in its tracks. We heeded almost none of them. The result is a pandemic on a scale never before seen in our lifetimes. In this captivating, authoritative, and eye-opening book, science journalist Debora MacKenzie lays out the full story of how and why it happened: the previous viruses that should have prepared us, the shocking public health failures that paved the way, the failure to contain the outbreak, and most importantly, what we must do to prevent future pandemics. Debora MacKenzie has been reporting on emerging diseases for more than three decades, and she draws on that experience to explain how COVID-19 went from a potentially manageable outbreak to a global pandemic. Offering a compelling history of the most significant recent outbreaks, including SARS, MERS, H1N1, Zika, and Ebola, she gives a crash course in Epidemiology 101--how viruses spread and how pandemics end--and outlines the lessons we failed to learn from each past crisis. In vivid detail, she takes us through the arrival and spread of COVID-19, making clear the steps that governments knew they could have taken to prevent or at least prepare for this. Looking forward, MacKenzie makes a bold, optimistic argument: this pandemic might finally galvanize the world to take viruses seriously. Fighting this pandemic and preventing the next one will take political action of all kinds, globally, from governments, the scientific community, and individuals--but it is possible. No one has yet brought together our knowledge of COVID-19 in a comprehensive, informative, and accessible way. But that story can already be told, and Debora MacKenzie's urgent telling is required reading for these times and beyond. It is too early to say where the COVID-19 pandemic will go, but it is past time to talk about what went wrong and how we can do better.

The global response to the Covid-19 pandemic is the greatest science policy failure in a generation. We knew this was coming. Warnings about the threat of a new pandemic have been made repeatedly since the 1980s and it was clear in January that a dangerous new virus was causing a devastating human tragedy in China. And yet the world ignored the warnings. Why? In this short and hard-hitting book, Richard Horton, editor of the medical journal The Lancet, scrutinizes the actions that governments around the world took – and failed to take – as the virus spread from its origins in Wuhan to the global pandemic that it is today. He shows that many Western governments and their scientific advisors made assumptions about the virus and its lethality that turned out to be mistaken. Valuable time was lost while the virus spread unchecked, leaving health systems unprepared for the avalanche of infections that followed. Drawing on his own scientific and medical expertise, Horton outlines the measures that need to be put in place, at both national and international levels, to prevent this kind of catastrophe from happening again. We’re supposed to be living in an era where human beings have become the dominant influence on the environment, but Covid-19 has revealed the fragility of our societies and the speed with which our systems can come crashing down. We need to learn the lessons of this pandemic and we need to learn them fast because the next pandemic may arrive sooner than we think.

Academic Paper from the year 2020 in the subject Economy - Health Economics, grade: A, , language: English, abstract: Europe has became the new epicentre of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the WHO on 13th March 2020. Sums and ratios of death and confirmed cases were reported daily, however, such statistics vary significantly by country and it is therefore challenging to understand and measure the risk and severity of the novel disease. Prior to the European outbreak, the COVID-19 virus infected more than 80,000 people in China since late 2019 and took the life of several thousands during the past few months. In this paper, a 3-state model Markov model is applied on the data from China to study the dynamics of the disease and the impact of containment strategies. The long-run stable transition probability obtained from the Markov model provides a convenient approach to estimate the case fatality rate of the COVID-19. Also, the estimated life expectancy give a reasonable estimate of time between first symptom and death. Considering the containment strategy implemented in China, the analysis is done for Hubei province and the rest of China respectively. Comparison of daily estimated results over the whole observation period highlight the impact of the strategy while supporting the measures and controls in place. The proposed Markov model produce reasonable and intuitive estimates that help to measure the virulence of the disease and understand the prevalence overtime. While uncertainty persists as the pandemic goes on, our results show that the Markov approaches provide a useful tool for prognosis and epidemic control.

As the new budgetary year starts, the Coronavirus has tainted over a million people above 200 nations a scourge defying the entirety of humankind. It affects ways of life, organizations, economies, and the supposition of regular prosperity that we all have to a great extent underestimated. Indeed, even before the beginning of this pandemic, the worldwide economy was going up against choppiness by interruptions in exchange streams and weakened development. The circumstance has now been bothered by the interest, flexibly and liquidity stuns that COVID-19 has dispensed. When the pandemic is controlled, the shape and speed of the recuperation in the U.S. what is more, China will among the key variables deciding the nature and footing of worldwide monetary recuperation. It is our desire as of now that the course of monetary recuperation in India will be smoother and quicker than that of numerous other propelled nations.

Academic Paper from the year 2020 in the subject Computer Sciences - Artificial Intelligence, grade: 10.00, , course: Electronics and Computer, language: English, abstract: In this paper student’s emotions such as excitement, happiness, confusion, sadness, desire and surprise, will be analysed by an Emotion AI. Therefore the neural network model, designed to capture the facial expression, is used. Deep learning is the emerging techniques to process large datasets of images with Kera’s using TensorFlow backend. Convolution Neural Network is an artificial neural network that has specialization in detection and classification. Convolution neural network has hidden layers called convolution layers. This layer consists of neurons. Facial emotion recognition usually employs a training and testing stage to produce the desirable output [ 2]. The emotion of the students plays the vital role to determine the student interest in attending classes. Facial expressions are among the most universal forms of body language. The facial expressions are almost similar throughout the world. The facial expression, movement of head, eye, mouth helps to identify the emotions of the students so that the level of interest of student can be predicted form the emotion analysis of students. For example: A smile can be used to indicate happiness. Facial expression reveals the true feelings about a situation. Then, after collecting those information, e-learning quality can be improved and enhanced. The reaction of the students is analyzed during the teaching and learning course. Thus, the mood of students can be predicted easily which help to improve the e - learning environment. The feedback will be provided to teachers to enhance the teaching and learning process in e-learning.

Academic Paper from the year 2020 in the subject Pedagogy - The Teacher, Educational Leadership, , language: English, abstract: The study tries to find out what strategies teachers and schools were implementing to meet the challenges of the Corona Virus pandemic. The results would serve as a sharing point of pedagogy strategies for many educators who would love to see the continuity of the teaching and learning process in the face of a pandemic. Interviews, testimonies, observations and participant observations were employed to obtain the results for this study. The beginning of the year 2020 saw a lot of disruptions in many spheres such as the social, economic, religious and political spheres due to the global outbreak of the Corona Virus Disease. As such, teaching and learning in many education institutions was also disrupted. This paper presents pedagogical strategies employed by some teachers and schools in ten districts of Zambia to ensure continuity of teaching and learning amidst the pandemic. The districts included; Kabwe, Kapiri-Mposhi, Mpongwe, Mkushi, Kitwe, Kafue, Luanshya, Lusaka, Mazabuka and Monze.

Academic Paper from the year 2020 in the subject Computer Science - Applied, grade: A, , language: English, abstract: Analysis and modelling of the daily observations is of the interest for both academic and practical needs during the worst public health crisis in decades. In this paper we propose a Boosting-based Quantile Autoregressive Tree (BQART) model to estimate the evolution in reported cases and fatality of the COVID-19 pandemic. The proposed approach benefit from the boosting methodology and the additive quantile regression to overcome challenges of unknown probabilistic distribution in the autoregressive variable and location shift in the observed data. The simple additive structure and binary autoregressive tree representation further improve the interpretability of the model and help to clearly illustrate the results. The estimated results for the USA and Singapore were discussed in details with more results for other countries in the appendix. While the shape and structure of estimated trees represent the autoregressive properties observed in the data, the model output helps to demonstrate improved accuracy in time series forecasting and analysis. These results should encourage the use of machine learning based tree ensembles in time-series modelling where model performance and interpretability is sought.

IN THIS BOOK, former journalist and occasional broadcaster Philip Algar offers an imaginative and satirical account of politicians, their behaviour and policies and the reaction of the public in the early days of the corona crisis. In writing this book, the author emphasises that he does not underestimate the tragic impact of corona nor does he belittle the disease, unlike some international leaders. Instead he takes some real incidents, exaggerating the potential impact and invents almost plausible stories. For example, he reveals, exclusively, how President Trump decided to blame the World Health Organisation and explains why there was a shortage of dogs in the UK. Why were Irish mountain climbers victimised and how might Sir Humphrey Appleby have reacted to government slogans? Why were some Mexicans disappointed when they learnt what was disallowed under the heading of essential items? Why did some rare bats become even more rare and why did a lake and beach change colour? Why did thieves want government financial support? Why was it so difficult to visit the local pub? How did cyclists imperil road safety and cause pollution? How did a radio broadcast give a totally wrong impression and why did some presenters arouse ire because of the condition of their homes? Why did children fear an invasion from space and what happened to subtitles when a government minister was speaking to the nation? How did some press conferences go seriously wrong? All this, and more, is revealed in this book which is intended to provoke a smile in these dark times.
