Infection and mortality rates for COVID-19 could be significantly reduced if high-income countries donated 46% of their COVID-19 vaccine stocks to low- and middle-income countries, according to a team led by researcher at CityU.
Correlation found between weather conditions and lower COVID-19 fatality rates: CityU research study
A correlation exists between the weather and humidity that patients are exposed to during different stages of COVID-19 infection and the probability of death, according to Dr Sean Yuan Hsiang-yu, Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at CityU, and PhD student Liang Jing-bo.
A research team led by a CityU scholar and other researchers have discovered a first-of-its-kind super-elastic alloy that can retain its stiffness even after being heated to 1,000 K (about 727 ℃) or above, with nearly zero energy dissipation. The team believes that the alloy can be applied in manufacturing high-precision devices for space missions.
Accurate estimate of 5th wave COVID-19 infections using CityU mathematical model; predicted peak yet to come
A research team at CityU estimated in mid-January, that if social mobility decreases by around 25% when compared to the level during the Christmas and New Year holidays, a fifth wave will cause around 250,000 infected cases, which is similar to the current pandemic trend in Hong Kong.
