ABSTRACT

COVID pandemic and the subsequent recent emergence of its different variants have posed significant challenges for continuing everyday lifestyle, including any educational institute's campus life. In contrast, educational institutes conduct classes, exams, placement, and other co-curricular activities online, offline, and hybrid modes. Because of this, we have achieved a web-based survey on students about their mental health and other related issues such as anxiety, worry, disturbance, fear of infection, and mental anguish caused by COVID-19 in university undergraduates. 1100 pupils completed a digital survey in this crosssectional study. All these are college graduates from various universities in Bhubaneswar, India, and other universities in Odisha. COVID-19 awareness, nervousness, tension, panic, and mental illness in the past were used to screen the psychological distress. This paper reviews the current scenario of COVID-19 concerning psychological distress and related issues. Students' mental health can be affected by using the development of RST (rough set theory) principles. © 2022 Nova Science Publishers, Inc. All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

Digital financial transactions, in comparison to in-cash transactions, provide an efficient and time saving option. Considering the significance of digital financial transactions in the present scenario of the COVID-19 crisis, this study has twin objectives: firstly, to examine the use of digital financial transactions in COVID-19 and secondly, to explore the existence of any relationship between financial literacy and the use of digital financial transactions, especially by low-income groups in India. This study uses secondary data from authorised and government sources for the analysis of the research objectives. Logistic regression model was deployed on National Centre for Financial Education (NCFE) (2019) survey data of around 36,600 low-income group to interpret the relationship between financial literacy and digital financial transactions. The analysis of the data suggested that financial literacy was significant in positively affecting digital financial transactions. In this regard, financial literacy could play an instrumental role, which is also being indicated through our estimated results. Copyright © 2022 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.

ABSTRACT

Purpose The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the financial-economic vulnerability of the public and threatened the household financial stability, especially of the low-income group population, in developing economies such as India. The assessment of household financial vulnerability has gained considerable attention these days, especially in poor and developing countries. This article seeks to assess the level of household financial vulnerability in India, based on a household survey conducted across India. Design/methodology/approach This paper has proposed a financial vulnerability index (FVI) based on three self-reported parameters: (1) making end meet, (2) perception of income shock and (3) perception of expenditure shock. Subsequently, the impact of various behavioural and socioeconomic factors on the proposed financial vulnerability index has been assessed using fractional probit regression. Findings The research findings indicate that higher financial knowledge, better money management skills and lower impulsivity in financial behaviour can reduce financial vulnerability. It is suggested that suitable financial literacy programmes be implemented for vulnerable sections of society to enhance their financial knowledge, improve money management skills and manage impulsivity, thereby helping them make informed financial decisions leading to their financial well-being. Originality/value To the best of the authors' knowledge, none of the past studies have developed and assessed the financial vulnerability index in India. This study provides relevant recommendations for various financial sector regulators and government institutions in India.

ABSTRACT

Background: The mortality of kidney transplant recipients (KTR) affected with coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) is reported to be higher than the general population. There is a scarcity of data on the pattern and outcome of COVID-19 in KTRs in developing country like India. Materials and Methods: It was a retrospective study conducted in a tertiary care center in North India. The detailed data on the Covid-19 affected KTR admitted to our center from March 2020 to March 2021 was obtained from computerized records. Clinical and biochemical characteristics of the survivors and nonsurvivors were studied. The factors affecting the mortality in this cohort were analyzed. Results: Of the 35 participants, 25 (71.4%) were males. The mean age was 53.06 & PLUSMN;11.84 years. Overall, mortality was 17.1% (Six out of 35). There was a significant difference in the oxygen saturation at presentation, computed tomography severity scores, level of inflammatory markers, level of serum albumin, and the absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) between the survivors and nonsurvivors (P < 0.05). On univariate regression analysis, serum C-reactive protein, ferritin, albumin, and ALC were found to be significantly predicting mortality in COVID-19 affected KTR. Conclusions: Mortality rate in COVID-19 affected KTR is higher than in the general population. Clinical, biochemical, and radiological parameters can be helpful in predicting the adverse outcome.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: Esophagogastric varices are a common complication of portal hypertension and can present with life-threatening bleeding. Definitive endoscopic therapy is via band ligation or sclerotherapy. The former is preferred for esophageal varices, but efficacy is lower in gastric varices (GV). Sclerotherapy with cyanoacrylate (CA) has shown better efficacy and is now recommended as first line therapy for bleeding GV. Studies on long-term efficacy and complications remain limited. CASE DESCRIPTION/METHODS: A 62-year-old woman with NASH cirrhosis (MELD 11) presented with hematemesis. She denied any history of SBP, varices, or encephalopathy. She endorsed a previous history of COVID-19 and had reactive IgG but PCR probe for SARS-CoV-2 was negative. She underwent EGD and was found to have oozing GV along the lesser curvature, which were treated with 4cc of CA achieving hemostasis. The following night she had altered mentation and the blood lactate was increased to 7.2 mmol/L. AST and ALT were also increased. She received broad spectrum antibiotics, and a CT angiogram showed evidence of embolization of CA into the left lobe of the liver. On day 3 her level of consciousness declined and she was intubated for airway compromise. An MRCP confirmed the presence of CA within the left hepatic lobe with associated ischemia. The lactate increased to 20 mmol/L and the blood ammonia level to 700 mcg/dL, with MELD 45. Continuous hemodialysis was started for anuric renal failure. She underwent evaluation for liver transplantation, but cerebral edema and multiorgan failure with refractory acidosis occurred and she died on day 7. DISCUSSION: We present a case of GV treated with CA and the subsequent embolization of CA into the left lobe of the liver. This precipitated acute on chronic liver failure with features of fulminant hepatic failure (FHF) complicated by severe hyperammonemia, cerebral edema, multiorgan failure, and death. Although she had a recent diagnosis of COVID-19, the time course, relatively normal initial inflammatory markers, and imaging suggest that CA embolization was likely the injury that led to fulminant hepatic failure. Given the lack of case reports of CA embolization to the liver causing infarction and few cases to the brain or distant vessels, further research on its long-term safety is warranted. Another novel aspect to this case is the development of FHF in a patient with known cirrhosis.
