The researchers’ work has made it possible to detail for the first time the spreading of the bacterium through lymph vessels and not just blood vessels, thus being able to invade the digestive system of infected animals through this new route. Read More
Researchers from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and Valencia University (UV) have developed a molecular analysis system that can warn of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 (which causes the Covid-19 disease) in a community based on the study of its waste water. Read More
A study by the University of Valencia, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the Public Entity of Sanitation of Waters of the Valencian Community has detected genetic material of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in untreated wastewater from the Valencia metropolitan area prior to February 24, the date on which the first Valencian case of COVID-19 was known.

The entrepreneur of the Universitat Jaume I Victor Guillem Agustí, through his company Vidasoft, is participating in a project that aims to develop an adapter for snorkeling masks and HEPA-13 sanitary filters. Read More
Researchers from the Universities of Valencia and Cordoba, as well as from the Institute for Sustainable Agriculture of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) have studied the fungus that causes verticilosis, a disease that kills millions of olive trees. Through the observation of the olive root microbiome, they conclude that verticillium wilt is driven by a wide community of microorganisms that unite to attack plants, making researchers rethink how to cope with it. The results have been published in the prestigious journal BMC Plant Biology. Read More
The CSIC’s Global Health Interdisciplinary Thematic Platform (PTI), in which more than 150 research groups collaborate and which is supported by the MAPFRE Foundation, has considered thirteen project proposals to address the economic and social impact of COVID-19 as priorities in its second resolution, four of which are from research centres in the Valencian Community, and has proposed them for pre-financing by the CSIC using its own available funds.

The Faculty of Law of the Universitat de València has promoted the set up of the Public and Constitutional Law and COVID-19 Observatory in Spain. The initiative and set up have come from university professor Lorenzo Cotino, from the Constitutional Law Department of the Valencian academic institution. Read More
Researchers develop a system based on smartphone-tracking to establish the risk of COVID-19 infection.
Researchers from the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), belonging to the VRAIN Institute, have developed DeteCCovid, a computer tool based on an algorithm that, by anonymously tracking smartphones, will help to detect people who have been close to a user infected with COVID-19. In addition, it will classify the risk of infection (very high, high, etc.) according to the distance and the time of contact. It is a development, at laboratory scale, that the researchers have provided health authorities with to manage the pandemic.
The authors of the study are researchers from the TXP Group of the CEU UCH in Castellón and the UJI university. They warn of the risk of this consumption to the mental health of minors and its possible effect on their possibility of re-offending. Read More
