ABSTRACT

Aim: To improve the accuracy percentage of predicting misinformation about COVID-19 using SVM algorithm. Materials and methods: Support Vector Machine (SVM) with sample size = 20 and Decision Tree classification with sample size = 20 was iterated at different times for predicting the accuracy percentage of misinformation about COVID19. The Novel Poly kernel function used in SVM maps the dataset into higher dimensional space which helps to improve accuracy percentage. Results and Discussion: SVM has significantly better accuracy (94.48%) compared to Decision Tree accuracy (93%). There was a statistical significance between SVM and the Decision Tree (p=0.000) (p < 0.05 Independent Sample T-test).

ABSTRACT

On the whole, poor countries in Africa and elsewhere seem to have weathered the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2, or COVID-19) pandemic better than wealthier countries with superior healthcare systems. Using the Ghanaian case, this paper draws on newspaper articles, policy statements, and other secondary sources to explain how the country's competitive clientelist political settlement mediated the public health outcomes of the pandemic. It argues that while it lacks overall state capacity, Ghana was able to surmount the limitations of its weak and underresourced public health system by leveraging 'residual capacity' from previous public health programmes and a strong proactive response from the continental and subregional organizations. The government's strong early response enabled it to gain control of the situation in the crucial first few months of the outbreak. However, with an upcoming election later in the year and unwilling to bear the political costs of sustaining its initial efforts, the government subsequently wavered in its response. The country's infection and death rates spiked and dipped in response to these waves of enforcement. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of the limits of 'residual capacity' in public service delivery.

ABSTRACT

Unlike Latin American peers, and contrary to World Health Organization recommendations, Nicaragua eschewed lockdowns and other common strategies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Analysts have since demonstrated how Nicaraguan authorities dramatically under-reported the number of deaths and infections that resulted (though a dearth of data complicates cross-country comparisons). Questions remain about the government's decision to pursue a hands-off strategy in the first place. This paper argues that rather than optimizing for fewer cases and deaths, the authoritarian government of President Daniel Ortega instead attuned its pandemic response to other, political and economic, variables. In the context of a pre-existing sociopolitical crisis that threatened the regime's legitimacy and territorial control, policy-makers were primarily interested in safeguarding macroeconomic indicators and fomenting a sense of normalcy among the populace. For related reasons, they restricted public health information and criminalized citizen-led public health efforts. In the Nicaraguan case, government and leadership mattered more than state capacity in determining the public health response.

ABSTRACT

et Amaç: Aralik 2019’da Çin’in Hubei eyaleti Wuhan’da nedeni bilinmeyen pnömoni salgını yaşandı ve bu hastalık Dünya Sağlık Örgütü (WHO) tarafından koronavirüs hastalığı (COVÍD-19) olarak adlandırıldı. COVÍD-19 hızlıca dünyaya yayıldı. Bu hastalık hastalarda farklı şiddette seyretmektedir. Bu nedenle hastalar yatarak tedavi veya ayaktan tedavi gibi farklı alternatifler ile tedavi edilmektedir. Bu çalışmada bizim amacımız biyokimyasal parametreler ile hastaların ayakta tedavi veya yatarak tedavi almasındaki ilişkiyi araştırmaktır. Gereç ve yöntem: Çok merkezli retrospektif kohort çalışmamızda hastalar iki gruba ayrıldı;yatan hastalar ve ayaktan tedavi alan hastalar. Yatarak tedavi alan 60 hasta olmak üzere 102 hasta çalışmaya alındı. Koronavirüs;WHO’nun kılavuzuna göre gerçek zamanlı polimeraz zincir reaksiyonu (PZR) yöntemiyle SARS-CoV-2 RNA saptanmasıyla belirlenmiştir. Kan parametrelerinde nötrofil/lenfosit oranı (NLR) hesaplanmıştır. Bulgular: Yatan hasta grubunda daha ileri yaş (32,0 (26,0-39,3);54,0 (38,3-59,3), p<0,001), kan değerlerinde daha yüksek laktat dehidrogenaz (LDH) (195,0 (156,5-225,3);248,5 (200,3-334,5), p<0,001) ve daha yüksek NLR (1,56 (1,08-2,62);2,60 (1,65-4,90), p<0,001) görüldü. Sonraki adımda lojistik regresyon analizinde;ileri yaş (OR:1,072 95 % CI:1,031-1,115, p=0,001), yüksek LDH (OR:1,021 95 %CI:1,009-1,034, p=0,001) yüksek NLR (OR:1,402 95 % CI:1,049-1,874, p=0,023) yatarak tedavi almayı bağımsız olarak predikte etti. Sonuç: COVÍD-19 hastalarında ileri yaş, yüksek LDH ve yüksek NLR değerleri hastanede yatarak tedavi almayı öngördürmüştür. COVID- 19 continues to spread rapidly all over the world. Patients may experience the disease at different severity. Therefore, they can be treated by choosing alternative approaches including outpatient treatment or hospitalization. Our aim in the present study is to investigate the relationship between some biochemical parameters on admission and treatment location preference (inpatient or outpatient) Materials and methods: At our multi-center retrospective cohort study, we divided the study into 2 groups as inpatients and outpatients. A total of 102 patients, 60 of whom received inpatient treatment, were enrolled. Coronavirus was determined by detecting SARS-CoV-2 RNA with a real-time PCR method in accordance with the WHO guide. Blood parameters were recorded and NLR was calculated. Results: Inpatient group was older (32.0 (26.0-39.3) vs 54.0 (38.3-59.3), p<0.001) and had significantly higher level of LDH (195.0 (156.5-225.3) vs 248.5 (200.3-334.5), p<0.001) and NLR (1.56 (1.08-2.62) vs 2.60 (1.65-4.90), p<0.001) in blood samples. In forward stepwise logistic regression analysis;advanced age (OR:1.072 95 % CI:1.031-1.115, p=0.001), high LDH (OR:1.021 95 %CI:1.009-1.034, p=0.001) and NLR (OR:1.402 95 % CI:1.049-1.874, p=0.023) were shown as independent predictors of hospitalization Conclusion: Advanced age, high LDH, and NLR level predicted hospitalization in patients with COVID-19. Keywords: Coronavirus, laktate dehydrogenase, neutrophil/ lymphocyte ratio (NLR)

ABSTRACT

Introduction and objective: On 10 March, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 pandemic, which has become a public health emergency of international concern. The purpose of this study was to explore the attitudes of health professionals towards the COVID-19 outbreak. Material and methods: A survey of 115 health care professionals was conducted in late 2020. The research tool was a questionnaire constructed based on surveys by the Public Opinion Research Center (CBOS). When analyzing the relationships, two groups were distinguished: hospital employees and those employed in other units, and employees with and without contact with patients. The results were processed using Microsoft Office Excel and Statistica 13.0. Analyses of the relationships were performed using the chi-square test, p<0.5. Results: More than a half of the respondents (51.30%) considered the current pandemic something unprecedented. Outside work, 86.96% of respondents covered their mouths and nose in public places, and 99.13% used hand disinfection in public places. Most employees of medical units (50.43%) considered the restrictions and security measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic to be too restrictive. This was due to the occupation performed and related with it direct contact with patients. Willingness to undergo vaccination against COVID-19 was expressed by 65.22% of respondents. Conclusions: Health care professionals have a high level of awareness of the need for SARS-CoV-2 prevention and adhere to epidemic safety measures both at and outside the workplace. Most health care professionals believe that the current pandemic safety measures are too restrictive. Most health care professionals (65.22%) were willing to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

ABSTRACT

Introduction and objective: Currently, the world is affected by the pandemic caused by coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which strongly affects the health care system. Dietary habits and nutritional status of the body significantly influence the course and outcome of COVID-19 treatment. The aim of this study is the summary of the current knowledge about the impact of dietary habits and nutritional status on the development and course of coronavirus disease and the presentation of nutritional recommendations for the dietary management in COVID-19 treatment. Review methods: The PubMed database and the official websites of medical organizations and associations were searched for the English phrases ‘COVID-19’, ‘SARS-CoV-2’, ‘nutrition’, ‘diet’. Abbreviated description of the state of knowledge: Chronic inflammation, immune system disorders, chronic diseases, nutritional status disorders and deficiency of nutrients might present possible factors associated with the severity and course of COVID-19. The nutrients play a direct role as cofactors and regulators of the immune system and reveal antiinflammatory effects. The supply of zinc, selenium, copper, iron, vitamin D, A, C, and B-group, as well as probiotics is important for the optimal function of the immune system. Deficiency of this micronutrients plays a remarkable role in an adverse course of COVID-19. Summary: The nutritional status of the body, dietary habits including the supply of necessary nutrients can have an impact of the reduction of susceptibility and alleviate the adverse consequences of coronavirus disease. The role of diet and nutritional interventions in COVID-19 is highly promising. This area of study is innovative;therefore, further investigations are needed to justify specific benefits from these actions for combating coronavirus disease.

ABSTRACT

Despite the importance of vaccinations to combat COVID-19, some people are still wary. This study examines factors affecting attitudes toward COVID-19 vaccination in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Data were collected using an online survey to determine the factors that affect people's attitudes reluctant to have the COVID-19 vaccine. In total, 958 respondents participated in this study. The main factors affecting people's attitudes toward the COVID-19 vaccine in the UAE are medical concerns, religious concerns, misinformation about vaccines on social media, the rapid speed of vaccine development, and the risks of side effects associated with the vaccine. There was no difference in gender, but the older respondents (55 and above), those less educated, unemployed, and those who work in the private sector have more fears and hesitancy toward taking the vaccine.

ABSTRACT

A new variant of coronavirus B.1.1.529. appeared on the scene, when discovered by the researchers in South Africa on Nov 24.2021. It is a heavily mutated variant of coronavirus discovered thus far with over 50+ mutations with 32 mutations over the spike protein itself. Spike proteins help the virus to bind to the bodily receptors of humans to gain entry inside. In comparison to the delta variant, which had nine mutations, it means that Omicron has better chances of evading the host immunity and is also more transmissible. And rightly so, it has been declared as a variant of concern(V°C) by the WHO. The presence of S-gene is of the determinants for the detection of the virus. But omicron seems to have missed this gene- being called as S-gene dropout or S-gene target failure (S- spike glycoprotein).

ABSTRACT

Coronaviruses cause animal and human respiratory and bowel infections. They have not been deemed highly pathogenic to humans until the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2002 and 2003 in Guangdong province, China. Coronaviruses (CoVs) are large, enveloped, positive-sense, single-stranded RNA viruses that can infect both animals and humans. Coronaviruses didn't just appear recently. They are large family of viruses that have been around for a long time. Formerly, coronaviruses (CoVs) were seen as relatively harmless respiratory pathogens to humans. However, two outbreaks of severe respiratory tract infection, caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) caused high pathogenicity and mortality rates among human populations as a result of zoonotic CoVs crossing the species barrier. Now the recent detection of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), added a new member in corona virus family.The novel coronavirus (COVID 19) is one of the member of coronavirus family which infect human. Scientists have divided coronaviruses into four subgroupings, called alpha, beta, gamma and delta. Seven of these viruses can infect people. The four common coronaviruses are-229E(alpha),NL63(alpha),OC43(beta),HKU1(beta). The three less-common coronaviruses areMERS-CoV(beta), SARS-CoV(beta),SARS-CoV-2. Our main target is to describe the the structure, Pathogenecity, Transmissibility and Epidemiology of above mentioned subgroups of corona viruses in our review.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Nearly two years have passed since the first stage of pandemic, when people refused to believe that there is a new virus that will spread and affect the whole world. Currently, there seems to be another denial phase of a pandemic facing the new Omicron mutations that are more transmissible than previous strains. Through the last two years, dental professionals were adaptable and smart to anticipate the risks of the incoming change. Material &Method: A cross-sectional questionnaire-based online survey with convenience sampling was conducted. Aim: The aim of this study is to assess the dental practitioner's response against COVID-19 and how much they are prepared now for the new variant OMICRON. Results: Out of a total of 365 responses, there were 147 males (40.27%) and 218 females (59.72%). The age of the patient ranges from 25 to 60 years of age with the mean age of 42.5 years.

ABSTRACT

The term long-COVID refers to a wide array of psychological impacts arising from infection with the Severe Acute Respiratory Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The virus has been reported to attack the nervous system directly, with nondirect impacts to organs and systems, such as elevated inflammation, blood pressure, and immune responses also damaging the brain. The electroencephalogram (EEG) has been used to image these insults and provides a valuable tool to guide understanding of infection mechanisms and, consequentially, therapeutic intervention. Due to the high likelihood of neurological complications, neurofeedback and other forms of neuromodulation may be particularly well suited to help long-COVID patients recover. However, clinicians providing neuromodulation interventions should be aware of, and take adequate steps to minimize, risks to themselves and others in providing face-to-face services. This review seeks to provide mental health professionals with an overview of the impacts of COVID-19 upon the nervous system, details current EEG findings, and outlines possibly relevant neurofeedback and neuromodulation interventions.

ABSTRACT

COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) is a new type of disease caused by a coronavirus, namely SARS-CoV-2, also known as the Corona virus. The Corona virus outbreak is causing concern all over the world, including in Indonesia. Many people became paranoid as a result of the virus's widespread spread, which was followed by reports of a number of deaths among victims. The spread of the Corona virus in Indonesia has had a negative impact on all aspects of life. Because of the density of settlements and the vastness of Indonesia's territory, this virus became out of control and spread quickly. The lack of socialization in dealing with this virus has an impact on the community's understanding of the importance of following health protocols. The goal of this research is to use data mining techniques to determine the pattern of symptoms caused by the Corona virus. The Association method is used in data mining. APRIORI is a popular association method that employs a high frequency pattem. This method is expected to be used to determine how likely it is that one case has the first symptom in addition to other symptoms. The parameters Support and Confidence support whether or not the association rules are required. After obtaining the results of the multiplication of Support and Confidence, the rule with the highest multiplication result will be discovered. The rule with the highest result is used as a rule to be applied in the next case, namely "If you have cough symptoms, they will be accompanied by fever symptoms with 90% support and 90% confidence".

ABSTRACT

The objective of this case report is to highlight the impending secondary fungal infection outbreak in COVID-19 and the need to contain this emerging spread of fungal infections. Three case reports are presented, all from India. Altered immunity is an important risk factor for mucormycosis. In addition, diabetes has been noted to be critical for the development of mucormycosis in immunocompetent patients. Candidiasis is an infection caused by the Candida species due to the immunosuppressed state developed by the use of glucocorticoids, which results in secondary fungal infection requiring urgent medical attention.
