ABSTRACT

Sensing Tools and Techniques for COVID-19: Developments and Challenges in Analysis and Detection of Coronavirus helps readers understand the basic principles of sensor development. Sections give a brief overview of the physical and chemical properties of sensing tools and the basics of techniques. With recent advancements in sensing technology, various smart materials and techniques are now being employed for new purposes. In addition, biosensing devices can be tuned at the molecular level to perform better detection of COVID-19. This book covers the various approaches for the development and fabrication of biosensor systems for the analysis of the novel coronavirus. In addition, the book discusses the commercialization and standardization of biosensing technology, along with future perspectives on biosensor technologies used for the analysis and treatment of COVID-19. This book will serve as an up-to-date source of trusted information on biosensor tools and techniques for the analysis of COVID-19. © 2022 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

COVID-19 in the Environment: Impact, Concerns, and Management of Coronavirus ; : 1-352, 2021.
Article in English | Scopus | ID: covidwho-2075827

ABSTRACT

COVID-19 in the Environment: Impact, Concerns, and Management of Coronavirus highlights the research and technology addressing COVID-19 in the environment, including the associated fate, transport, and disposal. It examines the impacts of the virus at local, national, and global levels, including both positive and negative environmental impacts and techniques for assessing and managing them. Utilizing case studies, it also presents examples of various issues around handling these impacts, as well as policies and strategies being developed as a result. Organized into six parts, COVID-19 in the Environment begins by presenting the nature of the virus and its transmission in various environmental media, as well as models for reducing the transmission. Section 2 describes methods for monitoring and detecting the virus, whereas Sections 3, 4, and 5 go on to examine the socio-economic impact, the environmental impact and risk, and the waste management impact, respectively. Finally, Section 6 explores the environmental policies and strategies that have comes as a result of COVID-19, the implications for climate change, and what the long-term effects will be on environmental sustainability. © 2022 Elsevier Inc.

ABSTRACT

The effect of COVID-19 is changing the ways in which we live, starting with one day then onto the next. While national and local regulatory interventions are widely centered on securing human wellbeing and economies, effective and sustainable waste management approaches are of paramount importance to limit the possible secondary environmental impacts in the longer run. In addition, considering the trend of the last 20 years, the COVID-19 episode is the third reported pandemic this century, following SARS and MERS in 2003 and 2012, individually. Therefore, similar pandemics with potentially greater magnitude and graver impacts are more likely to occur in the future based on the earlier analyses of disease outbreaks. It is within this context and more broadly to address overwhelmed waste management system exposed during the pandemic, the chapter aims to present: (i) the status of global solid waste generation and changes in its dynamics brought upon by COVID-19 crisis due to the fluctuated resource consumption, (ii) pandemic induced consumer’s behavioral changes resulting in panic purchasing of groceries, food stockpiling, over-buying, inappropriate storage, and overcooking which ultimately ended up as households waste, (iii) challenges and limitations faced by waste management authorities in handling the abrupt increase in volume and type of the solid waste generated globally, and, (iv) opportunities and strategies that gravely enables in obtaining resilient and sustainable waste management practices to overcome similar challenges in future pandemics. © 2022 Elsevier Inc.

ABSTRACT

COVID-19 is considered as a major public health problem caused by the SARS CoV-2. This Viral infection is known to induce worldwide pandemic in short period of time. Emerging evidence suggested that the transmission control and drug therapy may influence the preventive measures extensively as the host surrounding environment and pathogenic mechanism may contribute to the pandemic condition earlier in COVID-19 disease. Although, several animals identified as reservoir to date, however human-to-human transmission is well documented. Human beings are sustaining the virus in the communities and act as an amplifier of the virus. Human activities i.e., living with the patient, touching patient waste etc. in the surrounding of active patients or asymptomatic persons cause significant risk factors for transmission. On the other hand, drug target and mechanism to destroy the virus or virus inhibition depends on diversified approaches of drugs and different target for virus life cycle. This article describes the sustainable chemical preventive models understanding, requirements, technology adaptation and the implementation strategies in these pandemic-like situations. As the outbreak progresses, healthcare models focused on transmission control through disinfections and sanitization based on risk calculations. Identification of the most suitable target of drugs and regional control model of transmission are of high priority. In the early stages of an outbreak, availability of epidemiological information is important to encourage preventive measures efforts by public health authorities and provide robust evidence to guide interventions. Here, we have discussed the level of adaptations in technology that research professionals display toward their public health preventive models. We should compile a representative data set of adaptations that humans can consider for transmission control and adopt for viruses and their hosts. Overall, there are many aspects of the chemical science and technology in virus preventive measures. Herein, the most recent advances in this context are discussed, and the possible reasons behind the sustainable preventive model are presented. This kind of sustainable preventive model having adaptation and implementation with green chemistry system will reduce the shedding of the virus into the community by eco-friendly methods, and thus the risk of transmission and infection progression can be mitigated.

ABSTRACT

The outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, which appeared at the end of 2019, has had a tremendous impact on the entire world, both in terms of health, economics and the environment. So far, extensive strategies have been implemented for the fast diagnosis, prevention, control and treatment of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Advances in technologies based on metals and metal oxides nanoparticles such as Ag, Au, Cu2O, TiO2, Fe3O4, have opened up new perspectives in this regard. These materials have been extensively used for the management of COVID-19 due to their unique features. These materials have been applied for the preparation of antiviral face masks, coatings, different immunosensors, etc. In this review, we summarize and highlight the latest technologies, implementations and achievements based on metal and metal oxide nanoparticles in order to fight the emerging coronavirus. We present the preventive and diagnostic strategies to control this epidemic with the help of metals and metal oxide nanoparticles.
