This thesis provides knowledge on factors affecting the representativeness of wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) for monitoring the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The application of WBE to monitor health parameters has become essential due to the COVID-19 outbreak in March 2020. WBE is a well-known method to track the SARS-CoV-2 virus in wastewater and is...

The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management is committed to enhancing the accessibility and sustainability of the Dutch mobility system. Working from home (WFH) has been discussed as a policy lever to decrease commute travel and, thereby, congestion for decades. During the COVID-19 pandemic, this discussion regained momentum. WFH...

The spread of Covid-19 is modelled in this Bachelor thesis. This is done using two compartmental epidemiological models: the SIR-model and SIRS-model. These models divide the population into three groups, namely Susceptible, Infected and Recovered. Artificial data is generated based on the stochastic version of the models. The models are applied...

COVID-19 had (and still has) a huge impact on travel behaviour. Most research on the effects of COVID-19 on travel behaviour is based on daily travel behaviour. Long-distance travel is most of the time not included. Therefore, this paper studies the impact of perceived COVID-19 risk on mode-choice for long-distance travel in Europe. This paper...

The COVID-19 pandemic intensified the notion that workplaces need adjustments to support employees - a heterogenous group of individuals from different cultures, generations, genders, with a myriad of personalities, completing vastly different tasks in varied contexts. Of particular interest in this thesis are the site specific cultural and...

The outbreak of the pandemic in 2020 took a huge toll on Wuhan. The community in metropolitan areas has played a key role in China's pandemic control as a key battleground for closed management and become the focus of society under the pandemic prevention and control. <br/>However, its exposure of weak coping capacities makes building community...

On March 11, 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. The pandemic caused a sudden shift in the work environment, and quarantines and lockdowns in particular, brought about much change. Since changes in society affect employees’ preferences and needs regarding the future work environment,...

After the start of the COVID19 pandemic, many countries decided to develop digital contact tracing applications to assist in contact tracing. This aimed to warn people who were potentially infected as early as possible and stop them from spreading the virus further and bringing down the total amount of new infections. Even though there was some...

<b>Background</b>: The prevention of ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI) is an important topic in criticalcare. Lung overdistention is a great attributor to VILI. Regional evaluation of the pulmonary mechanicsis a relatively new method and is currently being studied using electrical impedance tomography (EIT)and computed tomography (CT)....

Lineage abundance estimation of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater is a technique that aims to monitor the lineage prevalence in communities and help contain the COVID-19 pandemic. Lineages are collections of closely related mutants of a virus. It is suggested that the genome sequences of lineages differ across the globe due to random mutations or...

During a viral infection, we expel remnants of the virus. This makes it possible to conduct wastewater analysis which aid in the efforts to track the evolution of the current Covid-19 pandemic. It has been shown that by repurposing the kallisto algorithm, the abundance of SARS-CoV-2 variants in wastewater samples can be estimated. Since this is...

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed people's lives in greater or lesser degree since the outbreak back in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. Due to the high transmissibility of the virus and with the aim of preventing the virus from continue spreading, several measures have been applied during the last two years, which now have become part of people's...

The influence of the COVID-19 pandemic is profound and enduring to the entire world. A ‘recovery’ to go back in time is unlikely to happen due to the lack of uncertainty in the future. The darkest time will eventually pass, whereas post-pandemic, the era in which the pandemic is perceived to have subsided, can still accelerate existing trends...

Background and aim: The exact pathophysiology of a COVID-19 infection is still not completely understood, which complicates treatment of the disease. In order to clarify the pathophysiologic mechanisms and optimize treatment methods, monitoring of the sublingual microcirculation may be valuable. From studies in septic patients, we know that...

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a large number of office workers were required to conduct their work from home. Little is known about the indoor environmental quality (IEQ) preferences and psychosocial comfort preferences of staff working from home. Therefore this study aimed to cluster office workers working at home based on their self-reported...
