A pandemic is an epidemic spread over a huge geographical area. COVID-19 is such pandemic documented after 1918 flu pandemic. In this work, we frame a mathematical epidemic model taking inspiration from the classic SIR model and develop a compartmental model with ten compartments to study the coronavirus dynamics in India and three of its most affected states, namely, Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu, with inclusion of factors related to face mask efficacy, contact tracing, and testing along with quarantine and isolation.

Background: The concern with environmental security to avoid contamination of people was intensified with the crisis established by SARS-CoV-2. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the necessity to create systems and devices capable of clearing the air of an environment from microorganisms more efficiently. The development of systems that allow removing micro-droplets mainly originated from breathing or talking from the air was the motivation of this study. Read More

Wild and managed pollinators are the key component of biodiversity, contributing to important ecosystem services such as pollination and supporting human food security. Pollination by insects is a crucial component of the food chain that ensures the production of fruits and strongly affects the fruit quality, but the effect of insect pollination on fruit physiological and chemical parameters is largely unknown. The current study was conducted to determine the insect pollinators diversity and their relative abundance in the loquat () orchard during 2017-2019. Read More

Rollover risk on mountainous interstates is a major concern for transportation agencies due to the combined mixed effects of adverse weather conditions and complex topography. Such crashes incur hazardous consequences on road users' lives. Therefore, a correlated random parameters logit modeling framework was employed to investigate the influences of crash precursors on rollover risk to identify effective safety countermeasures.

Geogenic arsenic (As) contamination of groundwater is a health threat to millions of people worldwide, particularly in alluvial regions of South and Southeast Asia. Mitigation measures are often hindered by high heterogeneities in As concentrations, the cause(s) of which are elusive. Here we used a comprehensive suite of stable isotope analyses and hydrogeochemical parameters to shed light on the mechanisms in a typical high-As Holocene aquifer near Hanoi where groundwater is advected to a low-As Pleistocene aquifer.
