ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the world economy since 2020. This study analyzed the impact of the pandemic on innovative agri-food companies from different branches of agro-industrial activity located in Extremadura (Spain). The main aim of this study was to determine which activities have been most affected. Differences between actions and changes made depending on the nature of the product, process, or services were also evaluated. The information was obtained from an online questionnaire in which the research questions were posed (what consequences, actions, or changes has the pandemic had on the development of firms' activities?). Data were analyzed descriptively, and a statistical study was conducted on the existence or absence of independence between effects and actions based on the branches of activity of agri-food industries. The main results showed that companies' financial (decrease in turnover and reduction/displacement of product demand) and operational functioning (difficulty in marketing activities and standstill/decline in the fiscal year) has mainly been affected. In response, innovative agro-industries have acted regarding their processes (increased ICT use and new marketing strategies) and procedures (implementation of stricter hygienic-sanitary protocols and reorganization of activities and personnel) to deal with the negative effects on their activities. In general, all agro-industrial branches have incorporated changes in their products and services, mainly by providing new and better customer benefits, and improving product formats and forms of payment to suppliers. These findings provide information for the regional public administration in the development of initiatives that mitigate the negative effects of the pandemic and favor the implementation of actions that help the adaptation of agro-industrial activities. Agricultural policies should incorporate specialized measures to ensure the global sustainability of the food and agriculture system and the supply and production.

ABSTRACT

From March to September 2020, the International Association of Scientific Experts in Tourism launched a study with 23 countries to know the measures taken by the public authorities to support the sector during the COVID-19 crisis, to detail the strategies of tourism players to deal with it, to define the rebound in the short and medium term, and finally to imagine the future of tourism, with or without COVID-19. The results of this survey are instructive and also show the many similarities in contexts and reactions around the world.

ABSTRACT

Accor, the European leader in the hotel industry, has been hit hard by the effects of the health crisis since March 2020. With the closure of hotels, hiring freeze, and deployment of partial unemployment, more than 220,000 employees have been affected by the consequences of the pandemic on the hotel group's activity. Beyond the emergency measures put in place, Accor has deployed an unprecedented aid system aimed at financially supporting its employees in the most difficult situation, and at welcoming the most vulnerable people within its establishments. At the same time, the group is already working on its recovery. It is in the process of certifying its hotels to guarantee optimum sanitary conditions, and is adapting a strategy focusing on the development of the lifestyle segment and on local customers.

ABSTRACT

10% of the French population concentrates a large part of the resources of the communication budgets of institutional tourism organizations. However, the vast majority of French people who go on vacation stay every summer in non-commercial accommodation. The challenges of growth in the tourist economy should therefore not be based on the quest for new customers in new markets, but on greater consumption of leisure activities by local populations. The absence of foreign customers in the summer of 2020 highlighted this mistake in marketing strategy when the potential of local customers is immense. This is demonstrated, in particular, by the success of the OCC'ygene card deployed by the Occitania region and the Regional Committee for Tourism and Leisure (CRTL).

ABSTRACT

Significant variations in access to fundamental public health services during the COVID-19 epidemic have been revealed by recent study conducted in a number of different nations. States have an obligation to apply what they have learned from the present pandemic to remove existing obstacles. In many aspects, the COVID-19 pandemic fostered cooperation across nations and within communities in an effort to address dangers to the public's health and lessen the socioeconomic effects of the virus. Some good practices have emerged as a result of extensive advocacy and engagement with governments by a variety of actors. These include expanding free access to COVID-19 testing, treatment, and vaccines for all migrants, regardless of status, and allowing stranded migrants and those without visas to access basic services. They must consider the impact of this extraordinary situation and global public health emergency on those who continue to face barriers to accessing basic services, such as COVID-19 vaccines, as well as how this intersects with both individual and public health, even though these policy developments are to be welcomed, championed, and replicated. Public health initiatives could be jeopardized by enduring access impediments as well as fresh difficulties brought on by movement restrictions and lockdowns. National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies conducted the study in eight nations: Australia, Colombia, Egypt, Ethiopia, the Philippines, Sudan, Sweden, and the UK (and data from the Sahel region was also taken into consideration). The findings suggest that, in order to end the pandemic and guarantee that everyone has the chance to receive assistance in a respectful and supportive manner, inclusive approaches for connecting with and supporting migrants and refugees must be incorporated into national and local pandemic preparedness, response, and recovery plans. Public health hazards will persist if inclusive policies are not accompanied by operational guidelines to overcome barriers in practice.

ABSTRACT

The Working Group of the Czech Pneumological and Phthisiological Society proposed a simple classification of post-COVID-19 patients into four originally established clinical groups. These groups (A-B-C-D) are based on the presence or absence of respiratory symptoms (dyspnea, cough, chest pain) and signs of pulmonary involvement (decreased Theo, latent respiratory insufficiency, lung impairment according to chest X-ray/HRCT) at least three months after COVID-19 diagnosis.

ABSTRACT

This position statement was developed by an expert panel commissioned by the Czech Pneumological and Phthisiological Society. The statement presents the basic principles of hospital treatment for COV1D-19, both pharmacological therapy and recommendations for various levels of respiratory or ventilatory support in COVID-19 respiratory failure. Treatment recommendations, grouped into several topics, are formulated as specific instructions based on current scientific knowledge. For each drug or treatment, the basic therapeutic overview and profile are presented. For each treatment recommendation, the level of recommendation is stated (very strong. strong, weak. insufficient or "not recommended"). Recommendations concerning mechanical ventilation and ECMO were formulated in cooperation with colleagues from the Czech Society of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine. The drugs and treatments are briefly summarized in a table and graph. The statement is updated as early February 2021 and - with regard to expected advances in scientific knowledge - will be updated in the future.

ABSTRACT

The events sector has suffered an unprecedented halt to its activity since March 2020. More than 300,000 jobs have been threatened since trade fairs, seminars, meetings and team building were brought to a halt by the Covid-19 epidemic. Far from being discouraged, the profession quickly thought about new models of encounters by imagining remote devices. The idea has been germinating for some time, but the health crisis has accelerated the trend towards the digitization of events without completely setting aside real encounters, but promoting a new form of hybrid encounters.

ABSTRACT

The average life expectancy in the EU is 80.6 years, and although it will (temporarily) decrease by one year in 2020 due to high COVID-19-related mortality, it has climbed significantly over the past two decades. The major causes of death are circulatory disorders and malignancies, but other factors, including dietary practices, alcohol intake, and smoking rates, have a significant impact on morbidity and mortality rates as well. Additionally, gender and other socioeconomic determinants contribute to significant inequalities in population health. Slovenia's per capita health spending is lower than the average for the EU, but it has continuously climbed, reaching US$ PPP 2283 in 2019. With a single state insurer, the SHI system offers nearly universal coverage for a variety of benefits. High co-insurance rates have also led to widespread use of additional, voluntary health insurance (VHI). Diversifying funding sources and raising additional funds for health care are perennial policy debate topics. In Slovenia, there is a long-standing relationship between primary care and public health initiatives. A network of community-based primary health care centers, which offer preventative, diagnostic, curative, rehabilitative, palliative, and health promotion services close to patients' homes under one roof by a variety of health care experts, provides primary care in the majority of cases. Doctors of personal primary care serve as the entry points to secondary-level specialty treatment. Long-term care services are currently undergoing a comprehensive reform. There are very few unmet medical requirements explicitly related to cost (or travel time) and there is little difference between economic levels. Long waiting periods, particularly for specialized services, continue despite substantial efforts, and they are the main cause of unmet medical need. In addition, some healthcare professionals, particularly primary care doctors and registered nurses working in hospitals, are dispersed unevenly and at low levels. The adoption of digital technologies, especially during the past year, has been significant and has aided in preserving access to healthcare during the COVID-19 pandemic.

ABSTRACT

In recent weeks, many Ukrainian refugees have crossed into Hungary, Poland, Moldova, and Romania. The WHO works with these and other nations to increase disease surveillance and provide immunization programs according to their schedules and policies. This article provides a summary of the recommendations provided by WHO to all countries in the region. According to the guidelines, countries must continue to make efforts to ensure that their resident populations, including refugee populations, are fully vaccinated against polio, measles, rubella, COVID-19, and other vaccine-preventable diseases. Vaccination against polio, measles, and rubella must be offered as a priority to incoming refugee children under the age of six who have missed any routine vaccinations Vaccine doses must be recorded and made available to vaccinated individuals.

ABSTRACT

The infection with SARS-CoV-2 among pregnant women represents a new challenge all over the world. Establishing an effective way to prevent the infection with the new type of coronavirus could decrease its incidence. Although this pathology is not completely understood and its perinatal complications are not entirely well known, it should be necessary to create a protocol to prevent and manage this disease. We present the experience of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the Bucharest University Emergency Hospital regarding pregnant women associating SARS-CoV-2 infection.

ABSTRACT

The primary function of national parks (NPs) is nature conservation, but for the majority of them, tourism also plays an important role. Tourism generates significant incomes, but the benefits are often unequally distributed in space, as are the disadvantages. The karst regions are generally less developed terrains in terms of traditional livelihoods, but due to their special morphology, tourism offers great opportunities. Nonetheless, mass tourism can also pose increased environmental risks. In this article, we examine the above questions on the example of Krka NP, especially from the perspective of tourists, as we conducted a questionnaire survey with visitors. The results confirmed that there is a high degree of spatial inequality both in the awareness of attractions and the distribution of tourist accommodation. This fact has already been recognised by the management of the NP, and serious steps have already been taken to reduce inequality, but their impact is not yet significant enough. Based on the survey, tourism in Krka NP is determined by same-day visits. Tourists who come here primarily consider waterfalls, lakes and rivers to be the most important values of the landscape, while cultural values are considered less significant and even less known. Local products are virtually unknown in the NP palette, so this could be a direction for development. Another point that could be developed is the awareness of visitors in the field of karstification. As the survey was conducted during COVID period, its impact on tourism was also briefly examined. This impact was manifested in the fact that the proportion of retirees and tourist buses was very small, whereas the majority of visitors (90%) arrived in the NP as independent travellers. For one third of foreigners, COVID played a role in choosing Croatia as a destination. As for domestic tourists, two thirds chose to find a destination in Croatia because of COVID.

ABSTRACT

The main objective of this study was to analyze the state of mind and the level of dependence on physical exercise of university students in the confinement stage, and their interrelationship between them, based on sex, whether they currently practice federated sports and the level of concern towards the problems created by COVID-19 worldwide. The study included 177 university students (133 men and 44 women) of Physical Activity and Sports Sciences from the Pontifical University of Salamanca with a mean age of 20.85 (+or- 2.83) years and a decrease in physical activity practice 73.5% in the first two weeks of confinement. The instruments used to assess these constructs were the Exercise Dependence Scale-Revised (EDS-R) and the short version of the Profile Mood States (POMS). The results show that there is a significant positive correlation between the level of dependence on physical exercise and Tension, Anger, Fatigue and Depressed State and a negative correlation with Vigor and Friendship. In conclusion, the importance of practicing physical activity for improving the mental health of university students is highlighted.
