FIFA World Cup ends with win for Argentina and COVID-19, new research finds

Media release from January 18, 2024 The 2022 FIFA World Cup ended with a tight win for Argentina over France on penalties, but it was also a triumph for SARS-CoV-2 with a significant jump in the number of cases, some of which York University researchers say could have been prevented. New research published today and […]

Monkeypox spreading to urban wildlife could lead to repeated outbreaks, shows mathematical modelling study

Monkeypox spreading to urban wildlife could lead to repeated outbreaks, shows mathematical modelling study

Mathematical modelling research in the Faculty of Science, in collaboration with the Public Health Agency of Canada, shows that it would become difficult to control monkeypox (MPX) outbreaks in a metropolitan area if the virus were to spill over into wild animal hosts, such as rodents. MPX can spread human-to-animal and animal-to-human, and a range […]
