  • vaccination
  • Examples include initiating a vaccination program, isolating infected individuals, implementing social distancing, evacuation of a region, shutting down air transportation (for a county, state or a whole country), closing a road or preventing mixing of infected individuals across borders. (eclipse.org)
  • I am currently working on the following projects: developing methods to use sequential serological samples to derive incidence using likelihood based method and adapt it to inform robust real time model of transmission, understanding the impact of changing social contacts during a calendar year and the possible impact on social distancing measures, evaluation of the long term effect of vaccination on seasonal influenza.

  • infection
  • The CDC guidance added that "all such community-based strategies should be used in combination with individual infection control measures, such as hand washing and cough etiquette. (medpagetoday.com)
  • In the case of potential pandemic situation, the Director of Health Services or designee will notify and maintain communication with the Dean of Student Affairs to assess and initiate appropriate mitigation measures to protect the campus from infection. (newberry.edu)
  • fewer
  • In general, with deception, can look for psychological distancing (fewer "I, me"), cognitive complexity (discourse structure) and anxiety/guilt (emotion leakage), but the relative importance of these varies hugely with the deception context. (lightbluetouchpaper.org)
  • periods
  • Yet, despite the evidence that certain emotions might spread over short periods from person to person, little is known about the role of social networks in happiness or about whether happiness might spread, by a diverse set of mechanisms, over longer periods or more widely in social networks.

  • response
  • The difference in response times between the two cities (≈14 days, when measured from the first reported cases) represents approximately three to five doubling times for an influenza epidemic. (pnas.org)
  • behaviors
  • It has been found in a variety of face-to-face networks that diffusion of information, behaviors and sentiments extend up to two to four degrees of distance from the original source. (mdpi.com)
  • case
  • Race cannot be understood without the social context in which it is used, in this case South African society, especially the DRC with a predominantly "white" membership and an "apartheid" history. (scielo.org.za)
  • Influenza
  • These findings support the hypothesis that rapid implementation of multiple NPIs can significantly reduce influenza transmission, but that viral spread will be renewed upon relaxation of such measures. (pnas.org)
  • public's
  • The history of U.S. epidemics also cautions that the public's acceptance of these health measures is enhanced when guided by ethical and humane principles. (medindia.net)
  • At each stage of the pandemic, providing accurate, credible and timely information-through the right message, delivered at the right time by the right person to the right audience-can help protect the public's health, save lives and minimize social and economic disruption. (canada.ca)
  • versus
  • Comprehensively, scholarly attention has been focused on the first part, namely, the homophily versus social contagion debate [ 9 , 10 , 11 , 12 ]. (mdpi.com)
  • disease spread
  • Springborn explains "This suggests that efforts to utilize social distancing to mitigate disease spread may have a limited window of efficacy, i.e. before pent up-demand for activities outside the home takes precedence. (biomedcentral.com)
  • common
  • A common feature of social networks is that closer ties tend to be more stable than farther ones. (mdpi.com)
  • processes
  • Race is not an objective, stable, homogenous category but is produced and animated by changing, complicated and uneven interactions between social processes and individual experience (Gunaratnam 2003: 8). (scielo.org.za)
  • certain
  • on the other hand, there is an empirical observation about the social distance from a given subject at which a certain phenomenon is expected to be observed. (mdpi.com)
  • Media
  • Airlines already use social media and email to communicate with customers, and, we believe, have a duty of care to passengers that extends beyond safe arrival at their travel destination. (mja.com.au)
  • It integrates a broad range of communication methods such as social marketing, social media and stakeholder consultation. (canada.ca)
  • example
  • Potentially exposed passengers could be directed to a health department website providing information about PEP options, use and access - for example, through their general practitioner - as well as self-monitoring for measles symptoms, and, should symptoms occur, social distancing measures. (mja.com.au)
  • spread
  • Objectives To evaluate whether happiness can spread from person to person and whether niches of happiness form within social networks. (bmj.com)
  • As diverse phenomena can spread in social networks, 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 we investigated whether happiness also does so. (bmj.com)
  • We were particularly interested in whether the spread of happiness pertains not just to direct relationships (such as friends) but also to indirect relationships (such as friends of friends) and whether there are geographical or temporal constraints on the spread of happiness through a social network. (bmj.com)
  • itself
  • The Dutch Reformed Church (DRC) distanced itself from racism in the middle eighties, and in the nineties, South Africa became officially a non-racial democracy. (scielo.org.za)
  • greater
  • However, our approach suggests that two of the previously proposed explanations (increasing instability of connections at greater distances from the source and simple information decay) should not be central to explain the pattern. (mdpi.com)
  • In this randomized placebo-controlled trial, we provide the first behavioral evidence that the intranasal administration of OXT stimulates men in a monogamous relationship, but not single ones, to keep a much greater distance (∼10-15 cm) between themselves and an attractive woman during a first encounter. (jneurosci.org)
  • promote
  • Together, our results suggest that where OXT release is stimulated during a monogamous relationship, it may additionally promote its maintenance by making men avoid signaling romantic interest to other women through close-approach behavior during social encounters. (jneurosci.org)
  • increases
  • Another important finding is that the magnitude of this positive association increases with the degree of social distance between the groups involved in the union. (springer.com)
