An epidemic can open a window of opportunity for reflection on and a revolution in disease control and prevention. In China, the 2003 severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) epidemic urged the national paper-based disease-reporting system to be transformed into the national notifiable disease reporting system (NNDRS), a system operated by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to facilitate the complete and timely reporting of cases of infectious disease. The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is now posing an urgent call for upgrading the NNDRS further.
With the pandemic of COVID-19, I built up a website, "Awesome of COVID-19", which collected the related resources of COVID-19 researches.
We suggest, therefore, considering the epidemiological information of patients (e.g., birthplace and residential history) when implementing precision management of CVD patients with COVID-19, to enhance mortality risk reduction.
We reported our work about COVID-19 during the past four months in the Nature and was titled as "Outpace epidemic transitional phases".
