ABSTRACT

This paper presents 2 COVID-19 cases, one with severe pneumonia and another with sequenced Delta variant, despite two doses of vaccination. The first case is A 59-year-old Caucasian American male with Glucose-6-Phosphate-Dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency had received ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccines. He presented to CIWEC on 9 May 2021 having completed his trek in the Everest area up to 5500 m with cough, shortness of breath, diarrhoea, fatigue and fevers for 6 days. On admission, he was febrile at 39 degrees C, pulse 108/min, with oxygen saturation of 86% in room air that declined rapidly. He had crepitations over bilateral lung fields. Chest X-ray showed COVID-19 pneumonia. RT-PCR and BioFire tests from nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs were positive. He required oxygen via high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) followed by Venturi mask due to HFNC intolerance. He received monoclonal antibody cocktail of Bamlanivimab and Etesevimab (personally acquired), Remdesivir, Dexamethasone, low molecular weight heparin (LMWH), antibiotics and paracetamol. After 9 days, he had an oxygen saturation of 94-95% in room air. The d-dimer was high at 16 000 ng/ml initially and stayed high till discharge. Doppler bilateral lower limbs showed acute thrombus in the right calf muscular vein. LMWH was continued at discharge followed by oral Rivaroxaban for 3 months. He was asymptomatic with normal d-dimer during follow up on June 17. The second case is a 61-year-old Caucasian American hypertensive male, aspiring Everest summiteer, with history of mRNA-1273 vaccinations on 12 January and 8 February 2021, in the USA presented to CIWEC on 12 May 2021 after helicopter evacuation from Everest Base Camp with headache and runny nose for 1 day. His COVID-19 antigen test and RT-PCR were positive. Vitals and systemic examination were normal apart from nasal and throat congestion. He was discharged for hotel self-isolation. He did well and flew back home on 25 May 2021 after testing negative. Whole genomic sequencing (Allpex Seegene Covid Multiplex Screening Assay) done at Intrepid Nepal laboratory in Kathmandu showed the Delta variant B.1.617.2.

ABSTRACT

Just as the smell gets diluted by ventilation, the dangerous concentration of the virus can also get reduced by ensuring appropriate amount of outdoor air flows in. In closed and stale space droplets and aerosol gets quickly concentrated and greatly increases the risk of transmission of virus in that area. Visit to any nearby shopping malls, newly furnished coaching classes, modern residential buildings, government offices, hotels, restaurants and even hospitals shows that they are nothing but an assortment of closed and unventilated spaces. These closed space acts as Super spreader of the virus. Peak test positive rate of 22.6% per hundred test is observed during the month of May, which is a result of high humidity particulate matter concentration temperature CO2 concentration.

ABSTRACT

After the large-scale vaccination of the coronavirus disease 2019(COVID-19), the traditional manual registration cannot track each vaccine from production to vaccination, as well as the vaccinators. It is easy to cause the lack and omission of registration information, and is not conducive to analyze the data of large-scale vaccine and vaccination. Therefore, this paper uses the front-end and back-end separated patterns with front-end using Vue and Elment-UI technology, and back-end using SpringBoot and Mybatis-Plus framework. It designs and realizes the whole-process management system of novel coronavirus vaccine, from vaccine logistics and vaccine warehousing management, to vaccination and post-vaccination tracking, and then to the forum management of vaccinators. The system aims to achieve "whole-process, traceable" management goal of vaccines. The system is feasible and practical, which can alleviate the problem of manual recording and collation of medical staff in vaccine management, and provide a convenient and information-based vaccination platform for medical staff and vaccinators. In addition, the system can collect the data on the whole process of vaccines and provide strong data support for scientific research work.

ABSTRACT

This article highlights the diffusion of the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe at continental scales and within continents at national scales. Using raw metrics (cumulative deaths and population) and per capita metrics (cumulative deaths per million of population) collected from April 2020 to 31 December 2021, results showed that Europe, North America, and South America had reached a relatively high evenness of spread. However, in Asia and Africa, a much larger concentration exists in a few areas. It is possible that in these two continental regions, there is not only poor connectivity, which offers natural barriers to transmission, but also high levels of undercounting.

ABSTRACT

Lost learning during a pandemic causes students' learning outcomes to drop. An alternative solution to the child's learning problem is learning with modules. Learning modules suitable for elementary school students need to be developed. Therefore, the study aimed to: (1) Discover the condition of elementary school students learning during the pandemic period;(2) Investigate the importance of independent learning;(3) Examine the use of modules as a supporting tool;(4) Delivering module illustration that can be developed for students. Furthermore, this study used a qualitative method with a phenomenology approach, and elementary school students, parents, and teachers serve as informants. The data were collected by interview and document, using the citation technique known as snowball citation, while the data was analyzed using data triangulation. The following conclusions were drawn: (1) Students felt uncomfortable learning during the pandemic;(2) Independent learning was important for elementary school students;(3) All parents agreed that the module could facilitate independent learning during the pandemic period;(4) The module illustration developed for elementary school students was completed by examples or real-life application. In cooperation with relevant individuals, the learner can make the decisions necessary to meet their learning needs and comprises internal and external components. Reflective skills are a combination of the learner's cognitive, metacognitive, and affective abilities, which we will refer to as their "internal components." The learner's "external environment" refers to the learning facility, time available, and peer and facilitator interaction. It contained learning material, objectives, question model, and evaluation and was understandable, attractive, and pleasing to learn. Also, this was completed by video link, adapted to the learning needs, and contained character development.

ABSTRACT

Background: Acute respiratory distress syndrome requiring invasive mechanical ventilation may occur in COVID-19 patients. Barotrauma causes clinically severe pneumothorax, necessitating a chest tube thoracostomy. Acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 is aerosolized during the process, hence specific precautions must be taken to minimize exposure risks to health care workers. Objectives: The objective of the study to diagnosis of Tube thoracostomy during the COVID-19 pandemic to detect and diagnose patients who are positive with the virus. Material & Methods: In Bangladesh, researchers from a tertiary care hospital's thoracic surgery section did a retrospective analysis. In total, we had 34 participants. All COVID-19 cases requiring thoracic surgery consultation and management that were admitted to the ICU between July 2020 and January 2022 were included in this study. Iatrogenic pneumothorax and other critical cases not associated with COVID-19 were also eliminated.

ABSTRACT

For the past two years, the globe has been in deep despair as a result of the fast spread of the new Coronavirus, SARS CoV-2, and several of its variations such as Delta, Omicron, and others. This pandemic has caused widespread rumours and misconceptions, wreaking havoc on the worldwide health-care system. Due to the periodic outbreaks of this infectious disease, along with the administration of effective antiviral vaccines and adherence to mandatory government protocols, every human being's recourse has been to strengthen their immunity to resist this infectious disease using kitchen ingredients like herbs and spices with medicinal properties and other home remedies. The results showed that there was a significant rise in the usage of kitchen pharmacy and the application of traditional knowledge, compared to the pre-pandemic times, owing to its immunity boosting properties. Along with increase in usage of kitchen pharmacy, there was also a surge observed in usage of ayurveda, other home remedies and yoga, in comparison with allopathy. The statistical analysis showed that 40.9% of the respondents showed marked recovery after the continual usage of home remedies.
