  • Infectious Disease Management Systems in the Gulf Region: The Current Status and Potential Impact

    No study has investigated the current state and potential impact of using infectious disease management systems in the Gulf Region. In this paper, we aim to investigate the current published literature to identify the studies and the potential impact of these technologies on improving infectious disease management. This study reviews the published papers (1975-2014) using a systematic approach. This entails searching peer-reviewed articles in both English (PubMed, Web of Science, and IEEE Xplorer) and Arabic (Al Manhal, Mandumah, and AskZad) electronic databases using the following terms: "infectious diseases", "e-health", "infectious diseases management systems", and country name. We analysed 96 English articles and 68 Arabic articles. No studies met the inclusion criteria. In conclusion, there is a need to conduct extensive research in this region, such as designing a system based on the needs of infectious patients as well as relevant social phenomena.

  • An Approach for Risk Maps of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases: Ecological and Adaptive Capacity Indicators

    Complex interactions of ecological and climate indicators playa vital role in defining spatiotemporal patterns of vector-borne disease habitats and transmission. Vietnam is in the sub-tropical climate zone with high humidity and abundant precipitation, while unevenly distributed precipitation leads to frequently annual occurrence of drought and flooding. The increase in frequency and magnitude of severe weather extremes likely linked to climate change and anthropogenic processes highlights the demands of research in GeoHealth risk and adaptive capacity assessment. In this study, mapping vector-borne disease is made for revealing physical features of ecological indicators and its association with vector-borne diseases and adaptive capacity to illustrate how remotely sensed data products have been utilized in GeoHealth applications, surveillance, and vector-borne disease risk mapping in Vietnam. Additionally, it is to promise the possibilities of establishing disease early-warning systems with citizen participation and provide knowledge to support ecological and human health diseases research.

  • Toward the Evaluation of Handwashing Skills Based on Image Processing

    Various infectious diseases have been known today. In hospitals, according to international guidelines, the hand hygiene is educated and practiced through handwashing for the purpose of preventing infectious diseases. Actually, several studies have been conducted to evaluate the skills of handwashing. However, in the previous works, the quantitative and objective evaluations have not been performed. In this paper, we propose a new method to evaluate the skill of handwashing. The method is based on the image processing, and the evaluation is realized in a quantitative and qualitative manner. Eighty-four students in department of nursing participated in our experiment, and our proposed method was validated. As the result, the area of pseudo-dirty spots on hand after washing could be extracted quantitatively and objectively. Our method will be applicable to education of nursing toward the prevention of infection spread.

However, the existing systems deliver information in the form of e-mail or text file, so it is difficult to understand at a glance. Additionally, users are unable to confirm the risk level because they are only provided with the number of outbreaks. In this paper, we propose a system that provides not only infectious disease outbreak but also relevant infection index information. We believe that our system provides effective infectious disease outbreak information by showing the user the risk level at a glance.

  • Information source localization with protector diffusion in networks

    Recently, the problem of detecting the information source in a network has been much studied, where it has been shown that the detection probability cannot be beyond 31% even for regular trees if the number of infected nodes is sufficiently large. In this paper, we study the impact of an anti-information spreading on the original information source detection. We first show a negative result: the anti-information diffusion does not increase the detection probability under Maximum-Likelihood-Estimator (MLE) when the number of infected nodes are sufficiently large by passive diffusion that the anti- information starts to be spread by a special node, called the protector, after is reached by the original information. We next consider the case when the distance between the information source and the protector follows a certain type of distribution, but its parameter is hidden. Then, we propose the following learning algorithm: a) learn the distance distribution parameters under MLE, and b) detect the information source under Maximum-A-Posterior- Estimator (MAPE) based on the learnt parameters. We provide an analytic characterization of the source detection probability for regular trees under the proposed algorithm, where MAPE outperforms MLE by up to 50% for 3-regular trees and by up to 63% when the degree of the regular tree becomes large. We demonstrate our theoretical findings through numerical results, and further present the simulation results for general topologies (e.g., Facebook and US power grid networks) even without knowledge of the distance distribution, showing that under a simple protector placement algorithm, MAPE produces the detection probability much larger than that by MLE.

  • Uncovering spatial invasion on metapopulation networks with SIR epidemics

    Understanding how infectious diseases spatially diffuse is critical to predict and control the epidemic prevalence. However, uncovering epidemic spatial invasion is challenging due to stochastic travel of hosts and insufficient data availability. In this study, we develop a methodology for inferring global invasion pathways on metapopulation networks with the susceptible- infected-recovered (SIR) epidemics. To solve the inference problem, we infer the invasion pathways of each invasion case as a subgraph containing a part of global invasion pathways at each epidemic arrival time. We first develop a reduction approach to decrease the sizes of the dominant invasion cases, and propose a local optimization method aiming at the SIR epidemics based on epidemic maximum diffusion (EMD) to infer spatial invasion pathways of the reduced invasion cases, and reconstruct the global invasion pathways. Compared with the previous work, we reduce the computational complexity of invasion cases, and improve the calculation of epidemic diffusion likelihood and effectiveness of the algorithm for epidemic recovery. Simulations on real and synthetic metapopulation networks verify the validity of our algorithm. Finally, an empirical example of the 2009 A (H1N1) in the USA is presented to uncover the spatial invasion pathways and identify the superinvaders.

  • Live Demonstration: A Mobile Diagnostic System for Rapid Detection and Tracking of Infectious Diseases

    A mobile diagnostic system is demonstrated for the early detection of infectious disease outbreaks in remote areas. The system comprises an ISFET- based platform, an AndroidOS application running on a smartphone, and a cloud server. Incorporation of microfluidics on the 78×56 ISFET array permits on- board isothermal DNA amplification and detection. Each die is mounted on single-use cartridges. The platform is controlled by the app, which collects relevant data via Bluetooth to process through algorithms stored on the smartphone. Upon a positive result, a data package containing disease type, geographical location, and timestamp is sent to the cloud. Real-time monitoring of outbreaks to pandemics can be visualized accordingly.

  • SEIR Evolutionary Simulation Model of the Infectious Disease Emergency

    A SEIR (susceptible-exposed-infected-recovered) evolutionary game and multi- agents simulation model of the infectious disease emergency is proposed. The two types of parties of the game are the government sectors and the public and the interaction between strategies and states of the public is taken into consideration in the model. It includes four types of states of the public, susceptible (S), infected (I), exposed (E) and recovered (R) states and the states could be switched from each other. At the same time, the evolutionary game is done between 'I' and 'E' individuals in the public and government sectors. From the simulation of the multi-agents model, the results is shown that the public adopt the self-control strategy more, the supervision strength of the government sectors is fluctuated in a high level and with the emergency from the outbreak to the decline, the E state of the public is the key of the evolution.

  • A rumor propagation model based on content trust

    With the development of network technology, the rumors of network rumors are getting more and more serious, and the spread of network rumors has become a research hotspot. Firstly, based on the content characteristics of the information, this paper combines the three characteristics of rumors: subject universality, impact severity and event ambiguity, and establishes a content trust function. Secondly, the micro-Markov chain approximation method is used to establish the discreteness of rumor communication. The model, continuity model and continuous model based on trust function, and then calculate the corresponding rumor propagation threshold. Finally, through numerical simulation, the validity of the three properties of rumors is verified, and the validity of the model is proved. Good suppression of rumor spread.

  • Evaluation of the basic reproduction number of MERS-CoV during the 2015 outbreak in South Korea

    In 2015 an outbreak of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) has occurred in South Korea, which has been known to be the second biggest outbreak of MERS so far. In this paper we study an estimation of the basic reproduction number of the coronavirus (CoV) of MERS based on the reported data from the MERS spread in South Korea. To this end we employ a mathematical model described by a set of ordinary differential equations, i.e. the well-known susceptible-infected- removed (SIR) model. First we fit the model to the epidemic curve data obtained from the outbreak. Then we can identify the model parameters and also the basic reproduction number. Note that there had been no control intervention during the early stage of the MERS outbreak in South Korea, which can be considered as the best condition for the estimation study of intrinsic epidemic parameters of MERS, such as basic reproduction number.
