: Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) preferentially infects respiratory tract cells, but it has organotropism. Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) is significantly distinct from common cold and SARS coronavirus. In past few years, the SARS-CoV-2 and MERS-CoV caused several deaths in South Korea. The aim of current study was to assess SARS-CoV-2 and MERS-CoV awareness and epidemic prevention ability in South Koreans.According to our results, out of 1500 participants, 98.8% and 64.3% were aware of SARS-CoV-2 and MERS-CoV, respectively. Moreover, 97% of the participants used masks for prevention of airborne diseases, while 65.3% of the participants reused the same mask for several days. In addition, 50% of the participants were not satisfied with the government support. Future viral epidemics can be prevented by disseminating advanced knowledge and awareness among general public.

Corona virus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) diketahui menyebabkan infeksi saluran nafas pada manusia mulai dari batuk pilek hingga yang lebih serius seperti  Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) dan Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). Persebaran COVID-19 meningkat semakin cepat melalui tetesan air  liur  atau keluar dari hidung ketika orang yang terinfeksi batuk atau bersin. Virus tersebut sangatlah meluas dengan cepat yang berdampak pada seluruh dunia, bukan hanya dalam pandangan kesehatan saja tetapi dalam ekonomi juga terdampak baik ekonomi Negara maupun masyarakatnya. Dimana keuangan masyarakat Desa Cagak Agung Kecamatan Cerme Gresik mengalami guncangan dalam masalah perekonomiannya. Berdasakan permasalahan tersebut, penulis melakukan pengabdian pada masyarakat Desa Cagak Agung kusunya pada Rt 02 Rw 01 melalui kegiatan Kuliah Kerja Nyata (KKN) Mandiri Tahun 2020 Universitas Muhammadiyah Gresik Era Covid-19. Untuk memberikan edukasi bahwasanya masyarakat Desa Cagak Agung Rt 02 Rw 01 banyak sekali yang bekerja di perusahaan kemudian di rumahkan sementara karena dalam masa lockdown, sehingga pemasukan yang dialami oleh masyarakat mengalami penurunan bahkan ada juga yang tidak mencukupi kebutuhannya sehinga banyak masyarakat yang mengeluh akan keadaan dan kondisi seperti ini untuk mencari peluang kerja sangatlah susah dicari, sehingga penulis memberikan sebuah edukasi maupun saran dengan apa yang telah dikeluhkan oleh masyarakat. Pemberian edukasi kepada sasaran penulis ialah salah satu warga budidaya ternak ikan lele dan edukasi yang di salurkan dengan system daring atau via online untuk memberikan edukasi bagaimana pemanfaatan tong bekas untuk dijadikan alat pengiriman agar dapat meminimalisir biaya pengiriman.

Coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS- CoV-2). Covid-19 pandemic began in the end of 2019 and spread all over the world in a short duration of time. Like two other notable beta coronaviruses, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-1 (SARS-CoV-1) and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), SARS-CoV-2 can lead to severe contagious respiratory disease. Due to impaired cellular immunity and physiological changes, pregnant women are susceptible to respiratory disease and are more likely to develop severe pneumonia.

Corona virus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) diketahui menyebabkan infeksi saluran nafas pada manusia mulai dari batuk pilek hingga yang lebih serius seperti Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) dan Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). Persebaran virus COVID-19 meningkat semakin cepat melalui tetesan air liur atau keluar dari hidung ketika orang yang terinfeksi batuk atau bersin. Akan tetapi, masih sangat minim pemahaman dan kesadaran masyarakat di Desa Kedungrukem Kecamatan Benjeng Kabupaten Gresik yang mematuhi protokol kesehatan saat beraktivitas di luar rumah. Lokasi tersebut merupakan padat penduduk.  Oleh karena itu, perlunya peningkatan pemahaman COVID-19 dan pentingnya mematuhi protokol kesehatan penanggulangan COVID-19. Berdasakan permasalahan tersebut, penulis melakukan pengabdian pada masyarakat melalui kegiatan Kuliah Kerja Nyata (KKN) UMG Era Covid-19. Kegiatan yang dilakukan dengan metode Edukasi COVID-19 secara online Kepada Masyarakat Desa Kedungrukem. Pada program KKN ini dilakukan pembagian masker, pembagian banner tentang bahaya dan cara pencegahan COVID19, edukasi tentang pentingnya menabung dimasa Pandemi COVID19, pembuatan pembukuan laporan keuangan untuk Karangtaruna Dusun Bulak Ploso serta edukasi protokol kesehatan di lingkungan Desa Kedungrukem secara virtual. Telah berhasil disalurkan sebanyak 75 masker, 1 banner tentang bahaya dan cara pencegahan COVID19, video edukasi tentang menabung dan cara pencegahan COVID19.

Coronaviruses (CoVs) are a class of viruses that cause respiratory tract infections in birds and mammals. Severe acute respiratory syndrome and Middle East respiratory syndrome are pathogenic human viruses. The ongoing coronavirus causing a pandemic of COVID-19 is a recently identified virus from this group. The first step in the control of spreading the disease is to detect and quarantine infected subjects. Consequently, the introduction of rapid and reliable detection methods for CoVs is crucial. To date, several methods were reported for the detection of coronaviruses. Nanoparticles play an important role in detection tools, thanks to their high surface-to-volume ratio and exclusive optical property enables the development of susceptible analytical nanoparticle-based sensors. The studies performed on using nanoparticles-based (mainly gold) sensors to detect CoVs in two categories of optical and electrochemical were reviewed here. Details of each reported sensor and its relevant analytical parameters are carefully provided and explained.

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) emerged as a virus with a pathogenicity closer to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) and a transmissibility similar to common cold coronaviruses (CoVs). In this review, we briefly discuss the features of the receptor-binding domain (RBD) and protease cleavage of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein that enable SARS-CoV-2 to be a pandemic virus.

Background: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). SARS-CoV-2 is a new type of corona virus that has never been previously identified in humans. There are at least two types of coronavirus that are known to cause diseases that can cause severe symptoms, such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). WHO recommends molecular testing for all patients suspected of being infected with COVID-19. The recommended method is the molecular detection method / NAAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification Test) such as the RT-PCR examination. Objectives: To report a case of Covid 19 which focuses on laboratory examination problems. Case Illustration: A 27-year-old woman has a persistent high fever accompanied by pain in the joints, coughing, and also a rash on the face and all over the body. On the fourth day of fever, the sufferer loses his sense of smell and taste. Work history as a volunteer for medical personnel in the Covid (+) room. Discussion: Laboratory tests for the diagnosis of Covid 19 consist of a complete hematology examination, clinical chemical examination, immunological examination, molecular examination (RT-PCR), examination of SARS CoV-2 antibodies. Conclusion: In this patient, the results of the swab were still reactive even though the patient was no longer showing clinical symptoms. This indicates that the virus can still be detected through RT-PCR examination. Keywords: clinical symptoms, Covid 19 PCR test, SARS-CoV-2   Latar Belakang: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) adalah penyakit menular yang disebabkan oleh Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). SARS-CoV-2 merupakan corona virus jenis baru yang belum pernah diidentifikasi sebelumnya pada manusia. Ada setidaknya dua jenis corona virus yang diketahui menyebabkan penyakit yang dapat menimbulkan gejala berat seperti Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) dan Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). WHO  merekomendasikan  pemeriksaan molekuler untuk seluruh pasien yang terduga terinfeksi COVID-19. Metode yang dianjurkan adalah  metode deteksi molekuler/NAAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification Test) seperti pemeriksaan RT-PCR. Tujuan: Melaporkan satu kasus Covid 19 yang menitikberatkan pada masalah pemeriksaan laboratorium. Ilustrasi Kasus: Seorang wanita usia 27 tahun  mengalami demam tinggi terus menerus disertai nyeri pada persendian, batuk, dan juga timbul ruam di wajah dan seluruh badan. Hari ke empat demam, penderita mengalami kehilangan indra penciuman dan indra perasa. Riwayat kerja sebagai sukarela tenaga medis di ruangan Covid (+).  Pembahasan: Pemeriksaan laboratorium untuk diagnosis Covid 19  terdiri dari pemeriksaan hematologi lengkap, pemeriksaan kimia klinik, pemeriksaan immunologi, pemeriksaan molekular (RT-PCR), pemeriksaan antibody SARS CoV-2. Kesimpulan: Pada pasien ini didapatkan hasil swab yang masih terus reaktif walaupun pasien sudah tidak lagi menunjukkan gejala klinis. Ini mengindikasikan bahwa virus masih dapat terdeteksi melalui pemeriksaan RT-PCR. Kata Kunci: gejala klinis, pemeriksaan PCR Covid 19, SARS-CoV-2

Coronavirus Infectious Disease (COVID-19) has taken heavy toll on human lives and world economy across the globe. Till date, there is no specific treatment and pathological effects in COVID-19 are continuously evolving. The governments and authorities have announced various measures for personal care with use of face masks, physical distancing and prohibition of mass gatherings. These measures have certainly helped to contain the disease but with substantial economic slowdown. Thus mass immunization by vaccination is the top priority. With knowledge of MERS-SARS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) in hand, researchers are rushing to vaccine development against SARS-CoV-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2) with newer technological platforms. However, the challenge lies in proving safety, quality and efficacy of vaccine with its resilience to manufacture it in large scales within stipulated time frame. The time consuming nature of classical phased clinical trials are substituted by human volunteer challenge with vaccination of humans engaging undertrial vaccine. This review discusses about various technology platforms being used and tried, their types and challenges in development of vaccine for SARS-CoV-2. Briefly, Indian perspective is also discussed in the race of vaccine development.
