News Articles Featuring Suresh Kuchipudi

Covid is rampant among deer, research shows

The findings are a reminder that human health is intertwined with that of animals and that inattention to other species could prolong the pandemic.

Deer populations may 'host' coronavirus

At least three COVID-19 variants are circulating through wild populations of white-tailed deer across northeast Ohio.

Will we ever move past the age of COVID? With the latest variant threat, it seems like we’ll forever be on guard

Earlier this fall, I had been abuzz about a planned work trip — my first since the start of the pandemic. Actually, it was to be my first time in a plane during the COVID era, as well.

The Rise of COVID-19 Vaccines for Animals

Thousands of animals have had their shot already. How many more really need it?

Animal health experts: US ag needs to be prepared for disease outbreaks

From COVID-19 to foot-and-mouth disease to African swine fever, infectious diseases are nothing new, for humans or for livestock. For centuries, they’ve been a consistent issue for farmers and agriculture as a whole. That doesn’t mean we’ve got them all figured out.

Omicron variant’s unusual mutations could mean it spread from an animal, scientists suggest

The unusual multitude of mutations on the omicron variant’s spike protein could suggest some level of animal transmission, scientists suggest, as the coronavirus has been found to spread to dogs, cats, mink, deer and many others.

Iowa deer are being infected with COVID. What does it mean for hunters?

While COVID-19 cases were peaking among humans in late 2020, researchers found over 80% of deer tested in Iowa were also infected.

Will omicron – the new coronavirus variant of concern – be more contagious than delta? A virus evolution expert explains what researchers know and what they don’t

A new variant named omicron (B.1.1.529) was reported by researchers in South Africa on Nov. 24, 2021, and designated a “variant of concern” by the World Health Organization two days later. Omicron is very unusual in that it is by far the most heavily mutated variant yet of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

‘As much as we want to move past the virus, we can’t right now’: What a canceled trip says about our continuing struggle with COVID-19

Yes, businesses are reopening and events are restarting. But we still don’t know when, if ever, we can fully return to normal.

How SARS-CoV-2 in American deer could alter the course of the global pandemic

Scientists have evidence that SARS-CoV-2 spreads explosively in white-tailed deer and that the virus is widespread in this deer population across the United States.
