Can data from paediatric cohorts solve the COVID-19 puzzle?

A large gap in our knowledge still exists in explaining the difference in susceptibility between adults and children to severe COVID-19 disease. In this Viewpoint by Lien Anh Ha Do and colleagues they compare the most recent virological and immunological data related to COVID-19 between adults and children. Based on these available data, a number of hypotheses are proposed to explain the difference in COVID-19 clinical outcomes between adults and children.

Battlefronts of evolutionary conflict between bacteria and animal hosts

Aleru and Barber discuss “Red Queen” dynamics in this Pearls article, in which pathogens and hosts are forced to continually adapt to maximize their relative fitness. They answer questions regarding how host immune defenses have been shaped by evolutionary conflicts with bacteria and discuss emerging questions related to such evolutionary conflicts.

Rethinking host range in Pneumocystis

In this Pearls article, Babb-Biernacki and colleagues review the literature on host distribution of Pneumocystis species and argue that restriction to a single host species, or monoxenism, is not supported by the available, albeit limited, data. They emphasize the importance of species discovery and studies of Pneumocystis host range as a prerequisite to the pursuit of other biological questions in these and other medically important fungi.
