ABSTRACT

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused severe economic depression and has disrupted the supply chains of various industries. The automobile industry which contributes significantly to the Indian economy was gravely hit due to the lockdowns, semiconductor shortage and the uncertainty associated with the pandemic. This research paper analyses the effect of Covid-19 on the automobile sales in India using the time series modelling approach. The data recorded by SIAM from 2012 to 2019 was used to develop the Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) model following the Box-Jenkins methodology. ARIMA model (2, 1, 3) was chosen as it had the lowest AIC and BIC criteria. This model was used to forecast the sales from 2020 to 2021 to give a picture of the expected automobile sales had the pandemic not occurred. The forecasted data from the model developed has then been compared with actual automobile sales data during the pandemic to gauge the level of impact Covid-19 had on the Indian automobile industry. The paper also explores the associated challenges that the automobile industry had to face due to the pandemic. © 2022 The authors and IOS Press.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Carbapenem resistance is endemic in the Indian sub-continent. In this study, carbapenem resistance rates and the prevalence of different carbapenemases were determined in Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa during two periods;Pre-COVID (August to October 2019) and COVID (January to February 2021) in a north-Indian tertiary care hospital. METHODS: Details of patient demographics and clinical condition was collated from the Hospital Information System and detection of carbapenemases NDM, OXA-48, VIM, IMP and KPC was done by Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in 152 and 138 non-consecutive carbapenem resistant isolates during the two study periods respectively. Conjugation assay and sequencing of NDM and OXA-48 gene was done on a few selected isolates. RESULTS: As compared to Pre-COVID period, co-morbidities and the mortality rates were higher in patients harbouring carbapenem resistant organisms during the COVID period. The overall carbapenem resistance rate for all the four organisms increased from 23 to 41% between the two periods of study;with Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella pneumoniae showing significant increase (p < 0.05). OXA-48, NDM and co-expression of NDM and OXA-48 were the most common genotypes detected. NDM-5 and OXA-232 were most common variants of NDM and OXA-48 family respectively during both the study periods. CONCLUSION: Higher rate of carbapenem resistance in COVID times could be attributed to increase in number of patients with co-morbidities. However, genetic elements of carbapenem resistance largely remained the same in the two time periods.

ABSTRACT

The pandemic compelled more exposure to online media in different forms like online education, interactions, gaming, and collaboration, which aggravated the cyberbullying issue. Cyberbullying can now occur in several different mediums due to the renewed lifestyle challenges spawned by the pandemic. Hence, it is imperative to assess the antecedents of cyberbullying behaviour (CBB). General Strain Theory (GST) is taken as a grounded theory to understand the underlying mechanisms of strain and anger and their impact on deviant outcomes like CBB. The current study adds to the GST literature by investigating the association between stress and anger, leading to cyberbullying behaviour. The study also examines the extent to which parenting factors (monitoring, communication, and trust) moderate adolescents' involvement in cyberbullying. An online survey was used to collect data from 221 high school Indian students for this purpose. As per the results, there is a direct relationship between strain, anger, and cyberbullying. The study confirms an indirect relationship between strain and cyberbullying through anger. The findings suggest that parental influences are important in moderating the relationship between strain and anger in adolescent cyberbullying behaviour. The study recommends strategies for parents, educators, and healthcare providers when dealing with cyberbullying behaviour.

ABSTRACT

Inspired by the 2021 BMJ Global Health Editorial by Atkins et al on global health (GH) teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic, a group of GH students and recent graduates from around the world convened to discuss our experiences in GH education during multiple global crises. Through weekly meetings over the course of several months, we reflected on the impact the COVID-19 pandemic and broader systemic inequities and injustices in GH education and practice have had on us over the past 2 years. Despite our geographical and disciplinary diversity, our collective experience suggests that while the pandemic provided an opportunity for changing GH education, that opportunity was not seized by most of our institutions. In light of the mounting health crises that loom over our generation, emerging GH professionals have a unique role in critiquing, deconstructing and reconstructing GH education to better address the needs of our time. By using our experiences learning GH during the pandemic as an entry point, and by using this collective as an incubator for dialogue and re-imagination, we offer our insights outlining successes and barriers we have faced with GH and its education and training. Furthermore, we identify autonomous collectives as a potential viable alternative to encourage pluriversality of knowledge and action systems and to move beyond Western universalism that frames most of traditional academia.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Telemedicine acted as one of the biggest medium in treating Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) patients during the second wave of the still ongoing pandemic. Although the symptoms were taken care of and treated through teleconsultation, the loneliness and social support system of these patients went largely unrecognised. The morbidity pattern, effect of self-isolation and quarantine, uncertainties in social support were major contributors to loneliness among patients suffering from COVID-19. Aim: To estimate the proportion of loneliness and level of social support experienced by COVID-19 patients seeking advice from a telemedicine centre of Kolkata and to find out their socio-clinical profile and the associated relationship. Materials and Methods: An observational study with cross-sectional design was conducted on 403 COVID-19 patients who had taken advice from the telemedicine centre of Institute of Post Graduate Medical Education and Research (IPGME and R), Kolkata for a period of 12 weeks (May-July 2021). Loneliness was assessed by the 11-item De Jong Gierveld Loneliness scale, whereas social support was assessed using 12-item Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support scale through telephonic interview. Data were tabulated in the Microsoft Office Excel 2019 (Microsoft Corp, Redmond, WA, USA) and the analysis was performed using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (IBM, New York City, USA) version 25.0. Results: Out of 403, more than half of the study population, 194 (48.2%) belonged to 18-35 years of age. Of the total, 235 (58.3%) were males, 319 (79.2%) were currently married and 300 (74.4%) were Hindus. About 142 (35.2%) respondents had experienced severe loneliness, while 297 (73.7%) had experienced high social support. There was a significant negative correlation found between loneliness and social support (r=-0.495, p-value <0.01). It was found that being male, belonging to nuclear family, education upto higher secondary level, being addicted, loneliness due to physical distancing, and those who had socialised frequently had higher odds of loneliness, whereas unemployed, unskilled, semiskilled and skilled occupation, having one chronic disease had lower odds of social support. Conclusion: About 338 (84%) patients had experienced loneliness which was strikingly high. This shows a deeper aspect into the actual picture of how COVID-19 impacts mental health of those who are affected. Future interventions are needed to address loneliness and develop social support system along with addressing healthcare needs of COVID-19 patients.

ABSTRACT

The new technological developments in the oil and gas industry have always pushed the operators to work into new frontiers such as heavy oil, HTHP, deep waters, and unconventional reservoirs. The oversupply accounted by shale extraction has led to shifts in markets and reduced oil prices, followed by slow demand growth due to the COVID-19 pandemic and an increase in acceptance of alternate energy resources, mandating the companies to adopt digital solutions to facilitate cost reduction and improving the operational efficiency in terms of increased production and reduced time. Digital oil field (DOF) is capable of transforming the future of the oil industry by creating opportunities to connect diverse operations, breaking silos, and achieving real value for the investments. The faster availability of cheaper data infrastructure is bringing Artificial Intelligence-driven technology and the latest data automation to the DOF. This chapter focuses on the DOF, its components, along the challenges encountered in widely accepting the technology. The chapter also addresses the emerging technologies which are being merged with DOF for better decision-making and optimization. © 2023 selection and editorial matter, Anirbid Sircar, Gautami Tripathi, Namrata Bist, Kashish Ara Shakil and Mithileysh Sathiyanarayanan;individual chapters, the contributors.

ABSTRACT

The novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 and quickly spread across the worldwide. It becomes a global pandemic and risk to the healthcare system of almost every nation around the world. In this study thirty natural compounds of 19 Indian herbal plants were used to analyze their binding with eight proteins associated with CO VID-19. Based on the molecular docking as well as ADMET analysis, isovitexin, glycyrrhizin, sitosterol, and piperine were identified as potential herbal medicine candidates. On comparing the binding affinity with Ivermectin, we have found that the inhibition potentials of the Trigonella foenum-graecum (fenugreek), Glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice), Tinospora cordifolia (giloy) and Piper nigrum (black pepper) are very promising with no side-effects.

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 emerged as a pandemic and affected many nations. World Health Organization [WHO] declared it as a worldwide pandemic alert on March 11, 2020, people had to stay indoors with lockdowns imposed, turning all daily activities to a halt. The lockdown was lifted in phase by manner from June 2020 as the cases were in control. A rise in pandemic was observed in many countries again in 2021, it was termed as the second wave of COVID-19. In India daily cases reached the mark of 4 lakhs in April 2021. This resulted in increased demand for oxygen supplies and other medical equipment’s to tackle the situation. With this, social media or the microblogging platforms like Twitter became a popular means of expressing emotions, making request for help and a daily information channel. The present study analyses the Twitter data extracted using Twitter API. It analyses and classifies people's sentiments related to the supply of oxygen during the second wave of the pandemic in India. The paper analyses the sentiment of the tweets for Indian users from June 20th, 2021, to June 26th, 2021, using Natural language processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.

ABSTRACT

 : Poster session 2, September 22, 2022, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PMDuring the second wave of COVID-19 in India, there was a deluge in Mucormycosis cases;which posed a serious threat as both conditions require extended hospital stay thus serving as an ideal setting for secondary infections. Objectives: 1. To ascertain the prevalence and anti-microbial profile of hospital-acquired secondary infections in COVID- 19 patients with Mucormycosis.2. To evaluate the outcome in these patients and compare it with the outcome of COVID-19 patients with Mucormycosis but without any other secondary infection. Methods: A 2-month retrospective observational study was conducted, where we compared outcomes in two groups of COVID-19 patients with Mucormycosis, one group being patients with secondary infections and the other group including patients without secondary infections.A total of 180 samples from suspected cases of Mucormycosis, that underwent evaluation by conventional methods, KOH mount and cultures on SDA, were included. Fungal pathogens were identified from the positive cultures, based on macroscopic and microscopic features, as per standard Mycological methods.Secondary infections inpatients were studied based on conventional bacteriological culture, microbiological profile, along-with identification and antibiotic susceptibility by VITEK 2. PCT and CRP values were also compared. The outcome was then evaluated. Data analysis was done using SPSS V-20. Results: A total of 55 patients out of 140 patients, tested positive for Mucormycosis, either by KOH, culture or both. Rhizopus arrhizus was the most common isolate identified.A total of 12/55 (21.8%) people with Mucormycosis developed secondary infections during their stay in the hospital, bloodstream infection being the most common (7/15;46.67%). Overall, gram-negative (GN) organisms were more common (11/16;68.75%), in comparison to Gram Positives (GP) (5/16;31.25%), but the most common organism isolated was Enterococcus faecium (5/16;31.25%), followed by Klebsiella pneumoniae (4/16) and E. coli (4/16). A total of 4/5 isolates (80%) of Enterococcus faecium were multi-drug resistant (MDR) and two of them were vancomycin-resistant. In all, 10/11 GN isolates (90.9%) were MDR, high resistance to carbapenems was observed, nine out of 11(81.81%) isolates were resistant to imipenem and eight (72.72%) were resistant to meropenem. A total of 3/12 (25%) patients succumbed to their infection in the group with secondary infections, after an average length of stay of 23.33 days. The most common cause of death in these patients was septic shock. A total of 8/43 (18.6%) succumbed to their infection in the group without any secondary infection at an average stay of 9.12 days in the hospital. CRP was found to be consistently elevated, this biomarker might not have a predictive value for bacterial infections in COVID-19 but PCT had a positive predictive value for the secondary bacterial infections overall (P-value <.001). Length of stay in hospital co-related with the development of secondary infection and mortality (P-value <.001). Conclusion: Culture-based testing should be carried out before the administration of anti-microbials. PCT can be used as a guiding tool. Controlled use of antibiotics along with periodic surveillance and hand hygiene practices will immensely contribute to infection control.

ABSTRACT

The teaching trend is shifting towards online learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to this, micro-lectures (MIL) are gaining popularity. Generally, assignments follow MIL to make learners comfortable with the concept explained in the MIL. So, the traditional micro-lecturing process (MILP) aims to enhance students' concept understanding skills. However, according to Bloom's taxonomy, understanding, application, and error handling are three fundamental skills required for students' overall academic development. Hence, traditional MILs fail to nurture the other two skills. So, is it possible to integrate application and error handling skills in the traditional micro-lecturing process? This research provides a handle to address this research question by proposing the micro-tutorial strategy. This strategy modifies the traditional MILP by doping it with micro-tutorials (MTUT). This modified MILP is called the micro-tutorial-based MILP. This process can simultaneously enhance students' understanding, application, and error handling skills. To prove the validity of the proposed strategy, we floated a 'C' programming course in which we lectured students using the proposed strategy and observed fantastic results. We believe that this research opens new dimensions for designing pedagogically effective MILs. © 2022 IEEE.

ABSTRACT

Purpose This study aims to examine the transitions in hiring criteria by recruiting companies in top ten Quacquarelli Symonds ranked business schools in India during the pandemic. Design/methodology/approach Using an exploratory lens, an in-depth semistructured interview was conducted with 20 recruiting companies across industries and roles. Findings Content analysis suggests the changing preferences in hiring criteria and identifies six themes that have assumed importance during the pandemic period. Research limitations/implications This study has implications for business school participants who need to change their preparation strategy during the placement season. Practical implications There is an opportunity for business schools to focus on these two soft skills, namely, self-management with self-discipline and oral and written communication across the platform. However, in the depth and diversity of soft skills training, there is often a shallow coverage of multiple skills. The rather focused approach to developing these two skills may go a long way in preparing work-delivery graduates who could hit the proverbial ground running as the first step into their careers. Originality/value This study contributes to hiring managers by suggesting the traits that may assume importance in the new normal where remote or hybrid working context is a necessity.

ABSTRACT

Background: Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the globe, it has not been possible to conduct traditional classroom teaching in view of the closure of schools and colleges in our country since March 2020. Hence, it is important to study the highlights, demerits, and bottlenecks in the implementation of online education from a student’s perspective. Methods: The present study was carried out to assess perceptions regarding virtual classroom among undergraduate students of a tertiary medical college in U.P. A pre-designed, semi-structured questionnaire was used. Study was conducted through an online survey. Data was analyzed with the help of SPSS version 21. Results: A total of 377 participants were included in the study. More than half of the participants (54.9%) preferred a mixed mode of learning which includes both online and offline learning. Lack of interaction with teachers (66.3%) and fellow students (57.6%) and lack of quiet space at home to listen to online classes (44%) were a few of the perceived demerits of online classes. Internet speed was found to be one of the most challenging issues faced in online learning (78.5%). Conclusion: Students’ perception of the blended learning mode was positive. They were, however, less enthusiastic about online learning than they were about conventional classroom learning. © 2022, Indian Association of Preventive and Social Medicine. All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

Introduction The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has affected the healthcare system. The residents who are at the frontline of this pandemic have suffered the most. The extent of the training loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic on gastroenterology (GE) training is not studied in India. Methods We designed a 36-question based google survey and distributed it to the GE residents all across India, via email. All the responses collected were analyzed using appropriate statistical methods. Results A total of 140 responses were received. No significant decrease in teaching sessions/ classes was reported. Most of the residents (83.5%) reported inability to complete the target thesis enrolment. The number of patients seen by the residents in outpatient department, patients managed in wards and endoscopic procedures done by residents have decreased significantly (p -valve <0.001 for all). An overwhelming 89.9% (n = 125) of the GE residents were posted for COVID-19 duties. Almost half (50.4%) of them were COVID-19 positive. Conclusion The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the training of GE residents in India immensely and an extension period of 3 months may be offered to them.

ABSTRACT

This paper talks about the traumatic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the human mind. This research will focus on the youth of the Indian subcontinent and the Middle East. The word 'youth' indicates that this research will be focused solely on the demographic of 13-30 years of age. The reason for choosing these two specific geographical locations is due to the circumstance that both of these areas faced the outbreak of the virus around the same time and imposed strict lockdown rules within the same week. While the reason for choosing this specific age group is due to the fact that we have the maximum number of reaches pertaining to this age group. This paper focuses on the prevalent issues of mental health in the millennial generation and how uncertainties of the future elevate and enhance such issues. The effects of this coronavirus will be evaluated with regards to three main factors, i.e., effects of being in quarantine, impact of social media and influence of economic factors on the mind.
