ABSTRACT

Respiratory infections are common diseases, the most common causative agent is a virus. In case of novel viral diseases pandemic like the COVID-19, routinely surveillance of respiratory viruses is useful. In this study, to clarify what kind of virus is involved in suspected cases of COVID-19 in the early stages of the pandemic, we attempted to detect various respiratory viruses from 613 specimens that tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 using RT- PCR method. Viruses were detected from 59 (9.6%) patients. Human rhinovirus (HRV), human metapneumovirus (HMPV), human respiratory syncytial virus, and human parechovirus were detected in 29 cases, 25 cases, 3 cases, and 2 cases, respectively. Although this study was conducted in a short period of time and not all specimens were tested, these results indicate that various respiratory viruses, especially HRV and HMPV can be detected even in the early stages of a pandemic, such as COVID-19. Because various respiratory viruses maintain a constant effect during the outbreak of the newly emerged pandemic respiratory virus, to make good use for clinical and public health, from normal period systematic surveillance about respiratory viruses is needed.

ABSTRACT

Background: The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic caused a public health emergency with profound consequences on physical and mental health of individuals. Emergency Rooms (ER) and Community Mental Health Services (CMHS) played a key role in the management of psychiatric emergencies during the pandemic. The purpose of the study was to evaluate urgent psychiatric consultations (UPCs) in the ERs of the General Hospitals and in the CMHS of a Northern Italian town during the pandemic period. Methods: This monocentric observational study collected UPCs carried out in ER from 01/03/2020 to 28/02/2021 (the so called "COVID-19 period") and the demographic and clinical characteristics of patients who required UPCs in the 12-months period, comparing these data with those collected from 01/03/2019 to 29/02/2020 (the so called "pre-COVID-19 period"). The same variables were collected for UPCs carried out in CMHS from 01/03/2020 to 31/01/2021 and compared with those collected from 01/03/2019 to 31/01/2020. The data, were statistically analyzed through STATA 12-2011. Results: In ER, we reported a 24% reduction in UPCs during the COVID-19 period (n = 909) in comparison with the pre-COVID-19 period (n = 1,194). Differently, we observed an increase of 4% in UPCs carried out in CMHS during the COVID-19 period (n = 1,214) in comparison with the previous period (n = 1,162). We observed an increase of UPCs in ER required by people who lived in psychiatric facilities or with disability pension whereas more UPCs in CMHS were required by older people or those living in other institutions compared to the previous period. In the COVID-19 period, the most frequent reasons for UPCs in ER were aggressiveness, socio-environmental maladjustment and psychiatric symptoms in organic disorders whereas in CMHS we reported an increase of UPCs for control of psychopharmacology therapy and mixed state/mania. Conclusion: In light of our findings, we conclude that the most vulnerable people required more frequent attention and care in both ER and CMHS during pandemic, which disrupted individuals' ability to adapt and induced many stressful reactive symptoms. In order to reduce the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health, psychological support interventions for the general population should be implemented, having particular regard for more psychologically fragile people.

ABSTRACT

Background: In 2014, the World Health Organization (WHO) launched the "post-2015 End TB strategy", that aims to end the global tuberculosis (TB) epidemic by 2030. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted global public health and the strict measures to control the coronavirus spread can affect the management of other diseases, such as TB. Herein, we aimed to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the diagnosis of TB in Brazil, during 2020. Methods: We carried out an ecological and population-based study, using spatial analysis techniques. The variables used were the new cases of TB, pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB), and also baciloscopy-positive (BP) cases in Brazil between 2015 and 2020. The percentage of changes (% change) was calculated to verify if there was an increase or decrease of TB cases in 2020, along with time trend analyses given by Joinpoint regression model. Also, interrupted time series analyses were used to assess the trend of TB diagnosis before and after the onset of the COVID-19 in Brazil. Spatial distribution maps were elaborated, considering the % change of each Brazilian state. Findings: Data analyses showed a reduction in the diagnosis of TB (-8.3%) and PTB (-8.1%) in Brazil after the irruption of the COVID-19 pandemic. Likewise, 22 states depicted a reduction in TB diagnosis. An expressive reduction of BP cases (-17.1%) was also observed. Interestingly, interrupted time series analysis showed decline in TB and PTB diagnoses from March 2020. Spatial analyses revealed that all states had a progressive reduction of TB, PTB and PB cases, from March on, with the highest percentages of reduction in December (-100% to -75%). Interpretation: Taken together, our analyses demonstrated a reduction in TB diagnosis after the irruption of the COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil and its regions, signaling a serious impact on the WHO "End TB Strategy" global plan.

ABSTRACT

This study investigated the effects of reduced quarter time due to COVID-19 pandemic rule changes, on running performance and injuries in Australian Football. Microsensor data for eight matches performed by the same 17 players were compared between the 2019 (standard) and 2020 (COVID-19) seasons using linear and generalised mixed models. Injury rates were assessed in 34 players across the full 2019 season, and 32 players across the full 2020 season. The total distance (ES = 1.28 [0.55 to 2.02]), high-speed (>18 km/h) (ES = 0.44 [-0.24 to 1.12]) and very high-speed (>24 km/h) (ES = 0.27 [-0.41 to 0.94]) distances, Player-Load™ (ES = 0.96 [0.25 to 1.67]), high-intensity efforts (ES = 0.48 [-0.20 to 1.16]), and accelerations (ES = 0.33 [-0.34 to 1.01]) were smaller (p ≤ 0.01) for the 2020 than the 2019 season. Expressed relative to playing time, distance (ES=-0.38 [-1.06 to 0.30]), PlayerLoad™ (ES = -0.27 [-0.94 to 0.41]), and acceleration efforts (ES = -0.50 [-1.18 to 0.18]) were greater (p < 0.05) for the 2020 than the 2019 season. No significant differences in maximum ball-in-play periods nor the difference between the 1st and 4th quarters were evident. Injury rates remained similar between 2019 (3.36 per game) and 2020 (3.55 per game). However, the proportion of injuries that led to lost time (missed games) was greater for the 2020 (38%) than 2019 season (24%. The changes in the rules had a profound impact on player performance and increased the likelihood of time loss injuries.

ABSTRACT

COVID-19 pandemic aggravated the global public health system, which is already overwhelmed by the increasing statistics of comorbidities and burden due to obesity. The number of individuals with obesity and obesity-associated diseases are rising in many regions that could attribute to the growing obesogenic environment and the lockdown implemented to curb COVID-19. This review focuses on the aspects of the obesity epidemic, chronic inflammatory effects of obesity, positive outcomes of obesity interventions and the worsening effects observed in obese COVID-19 patients. The chronic inflammatory effects of obesity are apparent by the increase of pro-inflammatory signals by immune cells in the adipose tissue and reactive species populations. The reduction of antioxidants exacerbates the effects of oxidative stress on genomic and tissue levels. The public must be made aware of the importance of practising a healthier lifestyle, even more now as we are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Despite evidence that that the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in general poses unprecedented risks, it is unclear to what extent these consequences have affected the mental health of the general population. This study aims to evaluate the psychological impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the general population in Oman and to associate the physical health status and psychological impact. Methods: A cross-sectional online anonymous survey in which 831 adults from Oman's general population were randomly sampled as per the inclusion criteria. The medical research and ethics commission approved the project. Data were collected after obtaining informed consent from the study participants. The criteria of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders was used to measure the psychological impact. Results: Among 831 respondents in this study, only 4.2 % and 14.9 % of total participants reported depressive and anxiety symptoms, respectively. There is a statistically significant difference in psychological scores between males and females at the p < .05 level: F (1, 829) = 16.03, p < .001. As a result of this discovery, it appears that women are mentally affected by the pandemic. Conclusion: The COVID-19 epidemic has had a severe impact on the general population's psychological health in Oman. This survey found that the global health crisis has a psychological impact on most of the adult population, regardless of their age. As a result, early detection, urgent medical intervention, and counseling are required.

ABSTRACT

Employee retention is one of the human resource management (HRM) issues. This study determines the factors that significantly influence employee retention amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The study employs complete enumeration and uses primary data. After which, the results are analyzed using descriptive statistics and econometric modeling. Results reveal that employees are satisfied to do their respective jobs (M=4.09, SD=0.48). In addition, they show that the determinants such as other income (p-value=0.024), length of service (p-value=0.099), as well as reward and recognition (p-value=0.015), are significant influences to employees’ retention. Hence, these conclude that better remuneration (and the increase thereof) are more likely to retain existing employees and attract employees from other organizations. Furthermore, the study specifically recommends that employee retention be improved by further refining reward and recognition that surely meet the needs and well-being of the employees. © 2022, University of San Jose-Recoletos.

ABSTRACT

This phenomenological research was conducted to inquire into the experiences of fathers of children with autism during the COVID-19 pandemic. This qualitative study was explored because there is a dearth of studies focusing on paternal involvement and a lack of local autism research. Nine participants, who were chosen using purposive sampling, individually participated in an unstructured interview. The van Kaam method popularized by Moustakas was used to analyze the data gathered. Five major themes emerged: recognizing the child's needs, surviving hardships, enduring exhaustion, encountering silver linings, and moving forward. The findings showed that fathers of children with autism encountered challenging and fulfilling events during the pandemic with resilience. Fathers of children with autism prioritized familial needs, especially of the child, and increased their presence in the household. A strong paternal character builds up fathers’ resilience in coping with the difficulties of raising a child with autism in a precarious time. © 2022, University of San Jose-Recoletos.

ABSTRACT

The Royal Household is probably the highest institution of the State as a monarchical system. In this sense, it is worth questioning how these organizations have managed communication with their public of interest during a crisis such as the temporary period of pandemic and post-pandemic, where the World Economic Forum states that it is a time of restart where a great social and economic restart is necessary. The main objective of this work is to know the institutional behavior of the British and Spanish Royal Houses through their respective Twitter accounts to determine convergences, synergies, and communicative styles in the digital environment. All this looking for the keys to the strategic management of the relations of both institutions with their citizens. A quantitative methodological design was established, based on content analysis (Kripendorff's alpha coefficient=0.852) on a corpus of 2211 messages issued during 2021 by the official Twitter accounts @RoyalFamily (1025 tweets) and @CasaReal (1186 tweets). The results show a significant difference in the content broadcasted, the regularity of the frequency of tweets per hour of broadcast and the interaction, viralization and engagement rates of each of the accounts analyzed. These results show that Twitter is a powerful communication tool capable of seeking the mutual interest suggested by relationship postulates in periods of transition. (English) [ FROM AUTHOR] La Casa Real es, probablemente, la más alta institución del Estado como sistema monárquico. En este sentido cabe cuestionarse cómo estos organismos han gestionado la comunicación, con sus públicos de interés, durante una situación de crisis como ha sido el periodo temporal de pandemia y postpandemia, donde el Foro Económico Mundial establece que es una época de reinicio donde es necesario un gran reinicio social y económico. El objetivo principal de este trabajo es conocer el comportamiento institucional de las casas reales británica y española a través de sus respectivas cuentas de Twitter para determinar convergencias, sinergias y estilos comunicativos en el entorno digital. Todo ello buscando las claves de la gestión estratégica de las relaciones de ambas instituciones con su ciudadanía. Se estableció un diseño metodológico cuantitativo, sustentado en el análisis de contenido (coeficiente alfa de Kripendorff = 0,852) sobre un corpus de 2211 mensajes emitidos durante 2021 por las cuentas oficiales de Twitter @RoyalFamily (1025 tuits) y @CasaReal (1186 tuits). Los resultados muestran una diferencia significativa en los contenidos emitidos, la regularidad de la frecuencia de los tuits por hora de emisión y las tasas de interacción, viralización y engagement de cada una de las cuentas analizadas. Estos resultados evidencian que Twitter es una poderosa herramienta de comunicación capaz de buscar el interés mutuo que sugieren los postulados relacionistas en periodos de transición.

ABSTRACT

This study includes a content analysis of viral disinformation (N=80) since the first COVID-19 case confirmed and during the mandatory quarantine in Peru (March 6th, 2020 - June 30th, 2020), that were identified by fact-checkers and public entities. The study adapts a typology for information disorders: exaggeration, decontextualization, deception, false alerts and frauds, and highlights their main characteristics. The investigation reveals that WhatsApp was the principal platform used for disseminating hoaxes, in addition to multiple social networks. Misinformation stories are mainly photos or text, and the contents were related to the health crisis, the economic bonus for vulnerable families, pandemic restrictions, and health myths. In addition, the study shows a useful guide for professionals working on fact-checking. (English) [ FROM AUTHOR] Se realiza un análisis de los contenidos de desinformación (N=80) que alcanzaron viralidad tras el anuncio del primer caso de COVID-19 y durante la cuarentena obligatoria por la pandemia (6 de marzo al 30 de junio del 2020), y que fueron identificados por sitios de fact-checking y entidades públicas. El estudio adapta una tipología que incluye cinco tipos de contenidos desinformativos: exageración, descontextualización, engaño, alertas falsas y estafas, destacando sus características principales. De esta manera, la investigación revela que WhatsApp fue el medio digital más usado para la difusión, así como el uso de múltiples redes sociales. Las fotos y texto fueron los elementos más usados para estos contenidos, mientras que las principales temáticas se centraron en la crisis sanitaria, el bono económico para las familias vulnerables, las restricciones en la pandemia, y los mitos de salud. Además, el estudio propone una guía para el proceso de verificación de datos en un contexto de emergencia sanitaria vigente.

ABSTRACT

COVID-19 has caused a transformation in the organizational structure of the healthcare system that directly affects the management of its communication. This article aims to know the communication strategy of hospitals in Spain in a context of normality and what have been the main changes and adaptation needs caused by the pandemic. For this purpose, the information is collected and analyzed from a structured questionnaire and two focus group with health communication professionals. The results obtained confirm that pandemic modifies the type of tasks carried out in the three communication areas and transforms both the information requested and the priority in the use of channels for its transmission. Furthermore the work concludes that the health crisis has accelerated the development of the digitization and of Spanish health and communication systems. Finally, the professionals consider that the pandemic has favored the knowledge and recognition of the communication function inside and outside the hospital. (English) [ FROM AUTHOR] La COVID-19 ha provocado una transformación en la estructura organizativa y asistencial del sistema sanitario que afecta de manera directa a la gestión de su comunicación. Este artículo tiene como propósito conocer la estrategia comunicativa de los hospitales en España en contexto de normalidad y cuáles han sido los principales cambios y necesidades de adaptación originados por la pandemia. Para ello, se recopila y analiza la información recabada a partir de un cuestionario y dos grupos de discusión con profesionales de la comunicación hospitalaria. Los resultados obtenidos confirman que la pandemia modifica la intensidad, el tipo de tareas que desarrollan y la prioridad en el uso de canales de comunicación. De manera transversal, el trabajo muestra que la crisis sanitaria ha acelerado el desarrollo de la digitalización de la sanidad española y de su comunicación. Paradójicamente, los profesionales estiman que la pandemia ha favorecido el conocimiento y el reconocimiento de la función de comunicación dentro y fuera del hospital.

ABSTRACT

Reflecting on the Covid-19 pandemic, this paper explores the intersection between ubiquitous technology and self. As a point of departure this exploration is undertaken through three domains of enquiry: the virilization of the self as an image (Flusser, 2011) and how this impacts the way we construct self;the desire for omnipresence as a manifestation of a wish to simultaneously inhabit distinct space-times (Mozzini-Alister, 2021);and how this desire is fundamentally linked to a narrowing of the "I". Finally, the 2x2 matrix (Schwartz, 1996) is utilised to present a reflection on how humanity may reconfigure itself in the shadow of Covid-19.

ABSTRACT

The management of the COVID-19 pandemic is a novel global challenge being addressed in real time. While some countries and regions of the world have had more recent experience managing similar viruses (such as SARS), all have had to deal with the new corona virus and the novel challenges that it presents. Public policy responses are rapidly changing, sometimes daily. This article focuses on how foresight narratives have impacted policymaking as related to the COVID-19 pandemic. More specifically, it provides an overview of the use of foresight within the public sector prior to the pandemic. It also investigates the key narratives in circulation during the implementation of governments' strategic objectives and the realization of visions of a 'pandemic-free' society. The approach used here is that of narrative foresight which predominantly focuses on the stories that individuals, organizations, states and civilizations tell themselves about the future. In addition to the overarching narratives, the article also investigates more specifically the most commonly used metaphors prior to and during the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of the article is to ascertain which lessons we can learn in terms of successes and failures of narrative 'foresight in action', so as to be able to utilise this knowledge for future global problems. Finally, the article argues that many current metaphors and narratives are linked to 'futures fallacies' - detrimental thinking patterns about the future. It then concludes by briefly investigating alternative narratives and metaphors which are more likely to facilitate the desired future of adequate pandemic preparedness.

ABSTRACT

Citizen science (CS) projects, being popular across many fields of science, have recently also become a popular tool to collect biodiversity data. Although the benefits of such projects for science and policy making are well understood, relatively little is known about the benefits participants get from these projects as well as their personal backgrounds and motivations. Furthermore, very little is known about their expectations. We here examine these aspects, with the citizen science project “German Butterfly Monitoring” as an example. A questionnaire was sent to all participants of the project and the responses to the questionnaire indicated the following: • Most transect walkers do not have a professional background in this field, though they do have a high educational level, and are close to retirement, with a high number of females;• An important motivation to join the project is to preserve the natural environment and to contribute to scientific knowledge;• Participants benefit by enhancing their knowledge about butterflies and especially their ability to identify different species (taxonomic knowledge);• Participants do not have specific expectations regarding the project beyond proper management and coordination, but have an intrinsic sense of working for a greater good. The willingness to join a project is higher if the project contributes to the solution of a problem discussed in the media (here, insect decline). Based on our findings from the analysis of the questionnaire we can derive a set of recommendations for establishing a successful CS project. These include the importance of good communication, e.g., by explaining what the (scientific) purpose of the project is and what problems are to be solved with the help of the data collected in the project. The motivation to join a CS project is mostly intrinsic and CS is a good tool to engage people during difficult times such as the COVID-19 pandemic, giving participants the feeling of doing something useful. © 2022 by the author(s).

ABSTRACT

The WHO Health Emergencies Programme combined online tools with adult learning techniques to develop an innovative online leadership course. A combination of self-paced learning and online classes were used to deliver skillsbased leadership training tailored to public health staff working in emergency response roles. Although using an online approach was considered a temporary solution to counter travel restrictions during the pandemic, the advantages have challenged preconceptions that effective learning, networking and peer exchange for leadership can only be achieved through face-to-face learning.
