Background: The global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the overall health and well-being brought fear, anxiety, worry, and mental health issues. Thus, a bibliometric analysis of COVID-19 and anxiety-related publications was performed to examine the current research trends and prospects to support policymakers, funding agencies, and researchers to safeguard the global population from post-COVID-19 psychological impact.

Objectives: The COVID-19 public health crisis has increased the global burden of diseases and mortality. Hence, global vaccination becomes non-negotiable to support immunity to reduce morbidity and mortality burdens. The COVID-19 vaccine campaign hinges on health promotion and equitable distribution, especially among minority groups. Therefore, the current study investigated the determinants of perceived vaccine efficacy and willingness to pay among foreign migrants in China. Methods: The study appraised data from an online-based survey carried out among foreign migrants in mainland China through the WeChat platform. Data analysis was carried out through bivariate and multivariate logistic regression. Results: A total of 498 foreign migrants were recruited, with male 47.65%, female 45.2%, and other gender minority groups (7.15%). The study found that females, gender minorities, students, preference for alternative medicine, culture neutrality, belief against vaccination, and prefer free vaccination were less likely to pay for COVID-19 vaccination. Meanwhile, those whose families/relatives are opposed to vaccination and have good subjective health than others in their age group were less likely to believe in vaccine efficacy. Those who have received at least a dose of COVI D-19 vaccine (AoR: 3.32, 95% CI: 1.94-5.58, p<0.001), believe vaccines are accessible (AoR: 2.40, 95% CI: 1.52-3.98, p<0.001) and have high perceived susceptibility to COVID-19 (AoR: 1.97,95% CI: 1.18-3.28, p<0.01) were more likely to believe in vaccine efficacy. Conclusion: The research extends evidence on vaccination behavior among foreign migrant groups. Vaccination support among migrants should target indicators like culture, gender identity, psychological health, subjective health, and perceived severity to eradicate vaccine hesitancy and misinformation that can translate to increased vaccine participation among minority groups.

Objective: The study objective was to explore the episode of COVID-19 symptoms among sub-Saharan African (SSA) by examining the predicting effect of mask usage, self-medication, and personal sensitivity on the symptoms. Materials and Methods: In a cross-sectional study in the SSA population, 536 individuals were asked about the episode of COVID-19 symptoms, personal sensitivity, mask usage, and self-medication. "Hierarchical multiple linear regression statistical method" was used to evaluate the data. Results: The personal sensitivity (r=0.245<0.01), taking off face mask in enclosed public places (r=0.255<0.01) and self -medication (r=0.392<0.01) were positively associated with COVID-19 symptoms. Overall, the total predictive effect of self-medication, taking off the mask in public spaces, and personal sensitivity accounted for 21% of the variance in the episode of COVID-19 symptoms of the study population. Conclusion: Personal sensitivity, mask usage, and self -medication support understanding of the episode of COVID-19 symptoms experienced among the study population. It is important to encourage the use of masks in high-risk areas. To improve post-COVID-19 health policies, self-medication used to decrease the risk of COVID-19 infection and other related public health concerns should be reduced.
