Epidemic Exposure, Financial Technology, and the Digital Divide

We ask if epidemic exposure leads to a change in financial technology use, as well as who participates in this transition. An increase in remoteu2010access banking and conversion from bank branch based to ATM operation has been attributed to an increase in remoteu2010access banking and the shift from bank branch based to ATM usage. Baseline effects are greater for people with higher ex ante 3G signal coverage, highlighting the role of the digital divide in adaption to new technologies that cannot be prompted by adverse external shocks.

Advancing access to Medicare‐funded mental health treatment during the opioid epidemic: A counselor advocacy analysis

Although advocacy is a top priority for counseling professionals, little is known about counseling advocates'u2019 involvement in the legislative advocacy process. Thematic review of 548 public comments on behalf of the counseling industry revealed four categories: advocacy on behalf of the proposed rule change; broader Medicare coverage; and no explicit support; the proposed rule change despite a new call for expanded Medicare reimbursement was found.

Epidemiological trends and clinical features of the ongoing monkeypox epidemic: A preliminary pooled data analysis and literature review

With little more than 1000 cases, an emerging epidemic of monkeypox infection is spreading around the world, with more than 30 countries now reporting an epidemic. We collected and synthesized early reports into the current outbreak's epidemiological trends and clinical characteristics of the continuing outbreak in the present preliminary report, comparing them to those from previous outbreaks. The continuing epidemic is distinct from previous outbreaks in terms of age, sex/gender, risk factors, and transmission route, with sexual transmission being highly suspected. The most common sign/symptom reported was fever, followed by inguinal lymphadenopathy, and exanthema. According to 27 percent and 25. 71% of the patients, Asthenia, exhaustion, and headache were all described in 22. 8 percent and 25. 71% of the subjects. In 17. 1 percent of the cases, Myalgia was present in 17. 1 percent of the cases. In 31. 4 percent of the cases, both genital and anal lesions were diagnosed in 31. 4 percent. In 11. 3 percent of the study, cervical lymphadenopathy was present in 11. 4 percent of the sample, but the most common reported signs were diarrhea and axillary lymphadenopathy.

Characterization of the O/ME‐SA/Ind‐2001d foot‐and‐mouth disease virus epidemic recorded in the Maghreb during 2014–2015

The O/ME/Indu20102001d has been the key foot-u2010 and u2010mouth disease virus lineage responsible for FMD epidemics throughout the Indian subcontinent from 2013 to 2017. After 14 years of absence, this was the first incursion of an FMDV type O of exotic origin in the Maghreb region. During 2013, three Tunisian sequences shared a single putative common ancestor closely related to FMDV strains circulating in Libya. The first introduction is represented by strains from Tunisia, the second one, of which the source is more uncertain, and includes strains from Algeria that gave rise to the 2015 epidemic that was traced to the 2015 epidemic, which was confirmed in Morocco. Overall, our findings revealed that O/Ind1-2001d FMDV originated in Maghreb through Tunisia, presumably in 2014, and then the virus spread to Algeria and later into Morocco.

Economic incentives for the wildlife trade and costs of epidemics compared across individual, national, and global scales

Given the costs of COVID 2009, severe acute respiratory syndrome (regulf) and Ebola disease in various scenarios of epidemic outbreak, we investigated why the wildlife trade persists despite increasing biodiversity and global health threats, we used a benefit-u2013cost model to compare the economic benefits of the wildlife trade at the individual, national, and global scales to compare the financial benefits of the wildlife trade on individual, national, and global scales to determine the economic benefits of the wildlife trade in the case of epidemic frequency. People who rely on wildlife for food and income are able to obtain net benefits from the increased threat of epidemic disease, but the wildlife trade incurs net losses on stakeholders on a larger scale. Many people are dependent on the wildlife trade, so the success of trade regulation will depend on how these benefits and prices compare across countries, and it would therefore need to include accessible and appealing alternative sources of food and livelihoods for those that depend on the wildlife trade.

Are epidemic growth rates more informative than reproduction numbers?

Summary results, many derived from simplified models of epidemic spread, often include outbreak prevention, inform public health policies in real time. Finally, some have suggested that the epidemic rise rate, or the rate of change of the logu2010transformed case incidence, be more temporally consistent and model-u2010agnostic policy guide. Both for investigating pathogen transmission mechanisms and advising public health interventions in real time, we evaluate their relative strengths.
