Personal Protective Equipment A quality improvement study looking at comparative fitted filtration efficiencies for various mask styles found N95 makes had efficiencies of 98.%; surgical mask with ties was 71.5%; procedure mask with ear loops was 38.1%. Used and/or expired Read More
Case reports: A case report of early-onset, severe COVID-19 infection in a neonate was published, suggestive of vertical transmission. Another case report describes an infant who present with incomplete Kawaski Disease as their primary symptoms of COVID-19 infection. Treatment: Within Read More
Clinical Testing and Evaluations In a cohort of 145 patients with mild to moderate COVID-19 illness, replication of SARS-CoV-2 in older children led to similar levels of viral RNA as adults, but significantly greater amounts are detected in children younger Read More
