ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES: To estimate the proportion of users of the TousAntiCovid app(lication) and identify factors associated with its non-use for contact tracing. METHODS: We conducted an online survey of a quota sample of French adults between 8 and 18 January 2021. Three categories of TousAntiCovid use were considered: contact tracing, other or temporary usage, and no use. A weighted multiple logistic regression was performed to analyze the factors associated with these different uses. RESULTS: Among the 1000 respondents, 63.3% declared they had never downloaded the TousAntiCovid app, 23.5% used it for contact tracing. The remaining 13.2% did not enable contact tracing, mainly because of excessive battery consumption and fear of misuse of personal data. Trust in political representatives, financial deprivation and other factors were associated with never downloading the app. CONCLUSION: This study confirms the previously suggested links between trust in political representatives, financial deprivation and the use of contact tracing apps in France.

ABSTRACT

The Fifth International Conference on Materials and Environmental Science (ICMES202211http://www.mocedes.org/icmes2022.), is an interdisciplinary platform to promote a multi-sectoral and collaborative approach in the field of development of new and innovative approaches in materials, their applications in energy and renewable energy, environmental science, sustainable development, health, biotechnology and electrical engineering. The scientific committee of ICMES2022 agreed that the health session was the priority since the Covid19 pandemic still constitutes a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. There are many multifunctional materials available by the advent of nanotechnology, ranging from carbon nanotubes, graphene, inorganic nanoparticles, conducting polymers, 2D materials, CO2 material capture, etc… Materials science Conference is an event that brings together leading researchers spanning the field of materials science and engineering to present and discuss cutting edge research with other experts in the field: exchanging ideas to advance current understanding towards the future of materials science.

ABSTRACT

Background: The COVID-19 pandemic is a highly traumatic event that may lead to a greater risk of developing psychological disorders, especially in cancer patients who are more likely to be infected with the virus and to develop complications. The objective of this study was to measure anxiety levels among cancer patient during COVID-19 pandemic and the associated factors including patients’ conditions of lockdown. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted among adult cancer patients (hematological and solid tumors) receiving outpatient treatment or during follow-up in a French Comprehensive Cancer Centre. A postal self-administered questionnaire was sent to 4000 patients in June 2020, including Anxiety (Stait Trait), Fear of a cancer recurrence (FCR) as well as questions relative to socio-demographics, management of cancer care during the pandemic and the conditions of lockdown. Results: A total of 1097 patients completed the questionnaire (63.2% female;mean age 64.7 years ±12.3 years, 24.3% haematological cancers). Mean IES-R score was 15.7 ([0-81]) and 14.7% of patients had moderate or severe post-traumatic stress (score ≥33). Mean anxiety score was 39.0 (SD=13.6, range: [20-80]) with 30.5% of patients having anxiety symptoms. In the multivariate analysis we found that anxiety level was significantly increased for younger patients (OR=1.69, 95%IC [1.01-2.82]), female (OR=1.65, 95%IC [1.05-2.59]), patients with a high FCR score (OR=4.90, 95%IC [2.84-8.44]), patients unsatisfied with the current management of their cancer (OR=2.4, 95%IC [1.58-3.66]) and patients afraid of coming to hospital for fear of COVID (OR=2.10, 95%IC [1.32-3.35]). Protective factors against anxiety were staying busy during the lockdown period (OR=0.46, 95%IC [0.30-0.72]) and seeing the positive aspects of lockdown (OR=0.43, 95%IC [0.28-0.66]). Conclusions: These results contribute to a better understanding of the psychological consequences of COVID-19 pandemic in the context of cancer and highlight the need to better support patients at high risk of developing high anxiety levels. Conditions of lockdown are important to contain anxiety among cancer patients. Legal entity responsible for the study: Institut Paoli-Calmettes Marseille France. Funding: Janssen. Disclosure: G.

ABSTRACT

Introduction Dans le but de réduire le nombre de personnes infectées par la COVID-19, plusieurs pays ont mis en œuvre des applications mobiles pour retracer les contacts étroits de la personne infectée par le SARS-CoV-2. Cependant, cette approche nécessite une large adhésion de la population pour être efficace. Cependant, depuis mars, de telles applications n’ont été installées que par 9,3 % des personnes dans le monde. Nos objectifs étaient d’estimer, en France, l’acceptabilité d’une application utilisant les téléphones mobiles pour retracer les contacts étroits entre les personnes lors d’épidémies, et les barrières potentielles à son utilisation. Méthodes Nos données ont été collectées parallèlement à l’enquête « Health Literacy Survey 2019 » réalisée en ligne auprès de 1003 français deux semaines après la fin du premier confinement en France (du 27 mai au 5 juin 2020). Les données utilisées étaient les caractéristiques sociodémographiques, la littératie en santé, la confiance dans les institutions et les connaissances sur la COVID-19 et les comportements préventifs. L’acceptabilité d’une application mobile de traçage a été mesurée par le biais d’une question ad hoc, dont les réponses ont été regroupées en trois modalités : App-partisan, App-favorable et App-réticent. Résultats Seulement 19,2 % étaient des partisans de l’application tandis que la moitié des participants (50,3 %) étaient réticents. Les facteurs associés à la non-réticence (App-adepte, App-favorable) étaient : l‘absence de difficultés financières et l’utilité perçue d’applications mobiles pour envoyer des questionnaires de santé aux médecins. L’âge de plus de 60 ans, la confiance dans les représentants politiques, les préoccupations envers la situation pandémique et des connaissances adéquates sur la transmission du SARS-CoV-2 augmentaient la probabilité d’adhérer complétement à l’application de traçage. Conclusion Les personnes les plus démunies, connues pour être plus à risque d’être atteintes par la COVID-19, sont également les plus réticentes à utiliser une application de traçage des contacts. Par conséquent, une adhésion optimale nécessite de mieux comprendre ces réticences et de larges campagnes de sensibilisation, proposant un discours rationalisé sur les avantages de santé publique d’adopter une telle application.
