ABSTRACT

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), as a public health emergency, is a serious threat to human health. Cancer patients have a high risk of being infected with COVID-19. As one of important means of cancer treatment, radiotherapy has become an important alternative to surgery during the epidemic of COVID-19. The radiotherapy department of Peking Union Medical College Hospital ensured the smooth development of radiotherapy work on the setup of prevention and control systems for COVID-19 by establishing admission strategies for cancer patients, disinfection, isolation, daily management measures, scientific exploration, and clinical practice. In this paper, the associated strategies are summarized and analyzed, which can provide experience and reference for radiotherapy treatment under public health emergencies. © 2021, Peking Union Medical College Hospital.

ABSTRACT

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak affects the use of biologics for psoriatic patients, in the way that the consequential immunosuppression potentially alters a patient's susceptibility to the virus or deteriorate the condition if the patient is infected or even change the prognosis of infection. Therefore, authors reviewed currently available recommendations from international psoriasis academic organizations and specialists, and summarized them with the specific situation in China. We are trying to provide guidance to the use of biologics for psoriatic patients in the following contexts: patients on biologic therapy, patients being considered for biologic therapy initiation, patients with low-risk or high-risk of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection, patients tested negative or positive for the nucleic acid testing of virus. © 2021 Lippincott Williams and Wilkins.

ABSTRACT

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has caused a significant decline in the stock market worldwide, and hospitality companies are experiencing serious financial problems. Protecting and preserving firm value is a critical way of helping hospitality companies survive the crisis. The influence of corporate social responsibility (CSR) on firm value has been widely investigated. However, little is known about the stock price movement following CSR activity adoption during an industrial crisis. Using event study and difference-in-difference method, this study reveals that engaging in CSR activities can increase the stock returns and stakeholder attention of hospitality firms during the pandemic. Community-related CSR has a stronger and more immediate effect on stock returns than customer- and employee-related CSR. Results also indicate that hospitality firms that pursue improved stock market performance during a pandemic can invest in CSR to protect communities, customers, and employees for attracting further stakeholder attention.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: In response to the sudden COVID-19 epidemic outbreak, China's Ministry of Education proposed "continuing teaching and learning regardless of suspending classes" to provide "available courses and teachers" for students. Web-based teaching has become the main teaching method of medical colleges and universities during the COVID-19 epidemic period. Before the outbreak, the concept and technology of web-based teaching had been partially implemented. The epidemic situation has promoted the implementation of large-scale web-based teaching and the multidimensional development of education in China. Furthermore, there are higher requirements for information teaching. Teachers and students cannot adapt to the web-based teaching mode. The lack of interaction is a problem in the web-based teaching. To adapt to the rapid development of information technology, medical colleges and universities must consider the COVID-19 epidemic as an opportunity to quickly update educational concepts, train teachers' Internet thinking, innovate the web-based teaching mode, and make full use of the network platform to provide better teaching and services. Moreover, medical colleges and universities should eliminate the weaknesses of web-based teaching and improve the quality and connotation of teaching.

ABSTRACT

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) can cause great damage to the elderly patients and lead to high mortality. The clinical presentations and auxiliary examinations of the elderly patients with COVID-19 are atypical, due to the physiological ageing deterioration and basal pathological state. The treatment strategy for the elderly patients has its own characteristics and treatment protocol should be considered accordingly. To improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of COVID-19 in the elderly, the Expert Committee of Geriatric Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, China Society of Geriatrics established the "Expert consensus for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of coronavirus disease 2019 in the elderly" . We focused on the clinical characteristics and key points for better treatment and prevention of COVID-19 in the elderly. (1) For diagnosis, atypical clinical presentation of COVID-19 in the elderly should be emphasized, which may be complicated by underlying disease. (2) For treatment, strategy of multiple disciplinary team (mainly the respiratory and critical care medicine) should be adopted and multiple systemic functions should be considered. (3) For prevention, health care model about integrated management of acute and chronic diseases, in and out of hospital should be applied.

ABSTRACT

Severe and critical coronavirus pneumonia 2019 (COVID-19) often occurs in elder patients with multiple comorbidities, and severe hypoxemia events constitute a key factor for the deterioration of some cases. The critical type of COVID-19 could progress into acute respiratory distress syndrome and multi-organ dysfunction, which are the major causes of death. Early non-invasive ventilation (NIV) treatment of possible pathophysiological abnormalities is helpful to improve prognosis. Close monitoring of oxygenation, reducing patients' oxygen consumption, active psychological intervention, and rapid handling of severe hypoxemia events are the key factors for successful NIV treatment. In addition, active adjuvant therapies such as correcting coagulation dysfunction, providing proper nutritional support, accurate volume control, and safe individualized blood glucose monitoring are of great significance.
