The impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease has been reported for different countries. Males are at high risk of death due to COVID-19 as compared to females. There is no data available for Pakistan, the South Asian region. We are therefore undertaking this analysis to determine the gender effect on the outcomes of COVID-19 in the South Asian nation of Pakistan. An online survey was performed across Pakistan (Punjab, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan) and national figures from the Pakistani government. In total, N = 113 individuals were included (92 males and 21 females). The descriptive statistics, association tests, and Pie chart indicate that males are more impacted by COVID-19 as compared to females. The doctor’s response indicates that 81.4% of males and 18.6% females are COVID-19 effective in Pakistan. Information from Pakistani national government statistics indicates that the number of male cases are 78%. Therefore, from the entire studies, we can infer that COVID-19 attacks more on males rather than females in the South Asian nation Pakistan. However, more quantitative studies are recommended to measure the extent to which sex would result in COVID-19 outcomes among Pakistan’s South Asian countries. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

Background & Objective: The massive burden of COVID-19 disease is believed to be associated with significant psychological disturbances on healthcare professionals. Increasing levels of stress may lead to anxiety, depression, burnout syndrome, and in severe cases, post-traumatic stress disorder. The objective of this study was to examine the presence of stress among resident trainee doctors working in a tertiary care hospital in Saudi Arabia in the context of the corona pandemic. Methodology: This was a cross-sectional study conducted in Security Forces Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. We included the resident trainee doctors from different specialties of our hospital including medical, surgical, anesthesia, emergency room (ER), and critical care units. We used convenience sampling to select study respondents. Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) was used for assessing the stress levels among trainees. Trainees were requested to fill the questionnaire either online survey monkey or in paper form. All data were entered and analyzed using SPSS version 26. We calculated mean, standard deviation, frequency count, and percentages for the perceived stress. Results: A total of 60 trainees were included in this study. Mean PSS-10 score was 20 +/- 5.51, with a range between 6 and 34. Four (6.7 %) trainees had low stress and 50 (83.3 %) trainees had moderate stress while 6 (10 %) trainees had high stress Conclusion: The majority of resident trainees in our study experienced a moderate level of anxiety during this COVID pandemic.
