Emerging research from the United States indicates that people with an East Asian background experience COVID-19-related racial discrimination. There is some (although not consistent) evidence that these discrimination experiences can in turn have psychological and behavioral consequences, such as strengthening one's ethnic identity and influencing parents' ethnic-racial socialization practices. The current study presents a unique natural experiment examining self-reported perceived discrimination experiences, ethnic identity, and ethnic-racial socialization among 80 Chinese immigrant mothers in the Netherlands before and after the COVID-19 outbreak (39 mothers recruited before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and 41 during). The main findings from our exploratory analyses indicated an impact of the pandemic with higher (subtle) discrimination and stronger ethnic identity among Chinese immigrant mothers living in the Netherlands, highlighting how personal experiences related to intergroup processes have changed as a result of the COVID-19 crisis in the European context.

BACKGROUND: Novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has spread throughout the world; yet, there are few reports of neonatal cases. Thus, information about related clinical care experience is scarce. CLINICAL FINDINGS: This case report includes 26 infants admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of Tongji Hospital in Wuhan City who were born to mothers with suspected/confirmed COVID-19. The nursing and medical staff implemented care of these infants in strict accordance with infection control measures. INTERVENTION: Emergency measures for the prevention and control of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection in the NICU were developed, and neonatal isolation, observation, and treatment were performed. OUTCOMES: Vital signs of the 26 infants remained stable during isolation and treatment, and no complications occurred. During the study period, neither the infants nor the nursing and medical staff were infected with SARS-CoV-2. PRACTICE RECOMMENDATIONS: Based on our strict practices, infants born to mothers with suspected/confirmed COVID-19 should receive care in a single-patient room to support infection control and provide enhanced observation. During initial contact and nursing care, increased attention should be given to the protection of infants born to mothers with suspected/confirmed COVID-19.

The COVID-19 pandemic is an ongoing global challenge for public health systems. Ultrasensitive and early identification of infection is critical in preventing widespread COVID-19 infection by presymptomatic and asymptomatic individuals, especially in the community and in-home settings. We demonstrate a multiplexed, portable, wireless electrochemical platform for ultra-rapid detection of COVID-19: the SARS-CoV-2 RapidPlex. It detects viral antigen nucleocapsid protein, IgM and IgG antibodies, as well as the inflammatory biomarker C-reactive protein, based on our mass-producible laser-engraved graphene electrodes. We demonstrate ultrasensitive, highly selective, and rapid electrochemical detection in the physiologically relevant ranges. We successfully evaluated the applicability of our SARS-CoV-2 RapidPlex platform with COVID-19-positive and COVID-19-negative blood and saliva samples. Based on this pilot study, our multiplexed immunosensor platform may allow for high-frequency at-home testing for COVID-19 telemedicine diagnosis and monitoring.
