ABSTRACT

Heavy work investment in various domains of activity has not been sufficiently explored. This paper investigates how accounting professionals in Romania perceived different aspects related to the heavy work investment during the coronavirus pandemic. Professional accountants devote, by the nature of their job, many hours of work. In March 2020, unprecedented measures were taken in Romania in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. These include the obligation to work remotely where possible. The study' objective is to establish the socio-economic implications generated by the COVID-19 pandemic vis-a-vis accounting professionals and the activities of the financial-accounting department within the organizations during the affected period. The data were collected between April and June 2020 by distributing a questionnaire online and were processed using the SPSS software. The research results show that professional accountants have adapted quite quickly to distance work. Work during the pandemic generated additional stress and fatigue, but had positive influence on the work-family relationship and productivity. The research results show that the respondents' perception of work was influenced by the following variables: the age of the respondents, the city where they work, the way of carrying out the profession (employee or freelancer), and the size of the company where they work. The results obtained can be used by managers and regulatory bodies.

ABSTRACT

Background: The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARSCoV-2) was first reported in Wuhan, China in December2019 and represented the pathogen agent that induced COVID-19. The onset and evolution of COVID -19 is severe when is associated with another comorbidities. Patients with acute leukemia present high risk for severe form of COVID-19 Aims: The main objective was to evaluate the particularities of COVID-19 in patients with acute leukemia. Methods: Our study was prospective and included 49 patients with acute leukemia (27 male median age 64 and22 female median age 54,5) who also were SARS CoV2 positive between April2020- February2021 admitted in Hematology and Intensive Care Unit Departments of Colentina Clinical Hospital Bucharest. The diagnosis was established using molecular test for SARS-Cov2 Results: In the group was included 32 patients diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), 9 patients with acute lymphoid leukemia (ALL), 6 patients with acut promyelocytic leukemia and2 patients with acute bifenotypic leukemia. Severe form of COVID-19 with ICU addmission was diagnosed in16 patients (32,17%), almost all of them (15 patients) had unfavourable evolution compared with non-ICU patients group with only1 deceased patient, p<0.0001. The recent chemotherapy followed by severe aplasia was the main negative factor that impacted patient evolution (rho=0.508, p=0.0002),13 patients admitted in ICU Department and12 patients in non-ICU. Severe pneumonia (more than 30% lung field) was diagnosed in17 patients with recent chemotherapy and 4 untreated patients. The type of leukemia or refractory status have not any impact of patient evolution. Antiviral therapy - Remdesivir rapidly introduced in patient's therapy was followed by favourable evolution. Summary/Conclusion: Patients with acute leukemia are negatively impacted by intensive chemotherapy during COVID-19 evolution. The key for good prognosis of these patients during COVID-19 are rapid diagnosis and antiviral therapy at the onset of the disease.

ABSTRACT

Context: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a highly infectious disease. A small proportion of COVID patients are positive for SARS-CoV-2 for long time. We report a COVID-19 patient with prolonged presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA. Objective: In this study we evaluate the unexpected evolution of patients with CLL diagnosed with COVID-19. Design and Setting: We have a prospective study that included all CLL patients admitted in the Hematology Department of Colentina Clinical Hospital, during April-June 2020. Patients or other participants: The study group included 3 CLL patients. All patients were SARS-CoV-2 positive by molecular test. Results: 1st patient: A 53-year-old male diagnosed with COVID on 25th March, 2020, at the onset presented fever, headache, and associated anal abscess. The patient had a history of diabetes mellitus and CLL (starting 2014). The CLL patient was monitored as a “watch and wait” patient until 2019 when started on Ibrutinib (was stopped on 16th March, 2020). He received antiviral+hydroxychloroquine associated with antibiotics Piperacilin/Tazobactam and Linezolid with favourable evolution and resolution of anal abscess. During surgical monitoring (week 3), patient presented fever, chills, cough and dyspnea. CT scan revealed bilateral COVID pneumonia and associated Klebsiella pneumonie infection in sputum by Biofire exam. Antibiotics treatment (Vancomycin, Colimicin, and Meropenem), antifungal treatment (Caspofungin), and Tocilizumab 640 mg was started with favourable evolution but patient is still SARS-CoV-2-positive (50 days). The long-time of positive SARS-CoV-2 status although the patient received COVID treatment including Tocilizumab is not an usual evolution for COVID patient 2nd and 3rd patients watch and wait CLL patients with positive SARS-CoV-2 test and ongoing evolution during 2 weeks. Compared with the rest of patients, including AML or MPN patients (negativity of SARS-CoV-2 test was obtained in maximum 2 weeks), CLL patients had long evolution. Conclusions: These cases suggest that a small proportion of COVID patients like CLL patients may have prolonged positivity for SARS-CoV-2 RNA although the evolution is not severe.
