Background: The goal of this study was to analyze the dental students' and faculty's perceptions of the usefulness of e-learning in prosthodontics during the difficult time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study with a sample size of 213 students and 10 faculty members was conducted at the institutional level. The participants' perspectives on e-learning were formed using prevalidated anonymous questionnaires, one for students and the other for faculty, each including a total of 20 questions, both closed and open ended. The data were examined using SPSS version 24.0 for statistical analysis. Mean and standard deviation were used for descriptive statistics, whereas frequencies and percentages were used for categorical data. Results: The survey participants, students, and instructors all agreed that online classes had certain advantages since they fit better into their schedules. Both students and professors were dissatisfied with the learning quality because the prosthodontics subject is mostly a practical domain that necessitates active demonstrations and debates to master the practical aspects of the subject. Discussion: The results of this study revealed the substantial challenges that teachers and dental students encounter when it comes to e-learning in prosthodontics. These findings can be used to improve students' and faculty's learning experiences, as well as to develop an effective and productive online learning platform. Conclusion: The current study's findings revealed the substantial challenges that dental students and instructors confront when it comes to e learning in prosthodontics. This can then be used to advise the university's dentistry education section in developing an effective and productive online teaching platform aimed at improving students' learning experiences. © 2022 Wolters Kluwer Medknow Publications.

Purpose: The last decade has encountered a massive increase in work from a culture in organizations. It is considered that this culture allows employees to manage their tasks more flexibly. The current situation of COVID-19 has majorly impacted the traditional systems of the workplace. One of these is allowing employees to work remotely. There have been constant debates on how the culture of telecommuting or working at home affects employees' job satisfaction and perceived productivity. This study attempts to analyze and establish an association between various ethnographic job characteristics and Job Satisfaction & perceived productivity of employees when working remotely. Design/Approach: The data is collected using a self-administered questionnaire The sample is collected from the full-time working professionals and interns working in different sectors with different ethnographies. The data for both of these categories have been analyzed separately using SPSS and MS-Excel. Findings: The analyses results indicated a significant and robust correlation of several characteristics with Job Satisfaction and perceived productivity. Originality: This study specifically aims to include diverse ethnographic factors like individual characteristics of people working remotely/telecommuting. Such factors have not been analyzed previously, which adds value to this research and hugely impacts the findings of previous studies.

Severe Acute Respiratory Coronavirus-2 [SARS-CoV-2] emerged as a great threat to the world at the end of December 2019 in China. The SARS-CoV-2 evolved from a virus responsible for the SARS epidemic in 2002. The SARS-CoV-2 has a high rate of human-human transmission and originated from the bat. It has a close resemblance with bat-like-SARS-CoV compared to SARS-CoV;however, the Spike protein responsible for virus-host cell interaction possesses the least similarity with that of SARS-CoV. Cytokine Storm is associated with the severity of Covid-19 and leads to acute respiratory distress syndrome [ARDS] and/or multiple organ dysfunction syndromes [MODS]. In the current review article, the features of a novel coronavirus, including viral biology, genomic organisation, life cycle, pathophysiology and genetic diversity, have been discussed. The development of policies and plans which can prepare the world for future pandemics has also been proposed. In addition, the drug development pipelines, diagnostic facilities and management of such pandemics need an up-gradation to contain the current as well as future outbreaks.
