ABSTRACT

Mobility and out-of-home activities restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic have forced people to maximize their in-home activities. Considering the increase in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) adoption during the outbreak, this paper tries to shed light on the factors that influence changing travel behavior. For these purposes, the study uses data collected through an online questionnaire during the outbreak in Indonesia, which was then analyzed using cluster and discriminant analyses. The study found that online adaptation during the outbreak was affected by income level, whereby high-income individuals are associated with high online adaptation. Residential location also influences ICT adaptation during the outbreak. Cities with higher access to the internet and ICT platforms as well as higher income per capita tend to have higher ICT adoption. People with more experience with online platforms or services also record higher online in-home activity adoption during the outbreak. Furthermore, while the lower-income group tends to reduce their travel, the higher-income group still continues to travel to fulfil their household needs during the outbreak, such as in-store shopping. Since the lower-income group and less accessible areas tend to have difficulty in accessing ICT as a substitute for travel, this study recommends that the government and ICT stakeholders ensure equal access to ICT to support physical distancing and to limit mobility in order to flatten the peak of the pandemic.

ABSTRACT

Background Adhering to a Mediterranean Diet (MedDiet) is associated with a healthier cardiometabolic profile. However, there are limited studies on the MedDiet benefits for non-Mediterranean racial/ethnic minorities, for whom this diet may be unfamiliar and inaccessible and who have a high risk of chronic diseases. Objective To describe the study design of a pilot trial testing the efficacy of a MedDiet-like tailored to adults in Puerto Rico (PR). Methods The Puerto Rican Optimized Mediterranean-like Diet (PROMED) was a single-site four-month parallel two-arm randomized pilot trial among a projected 50 free-living adults (25-65y) living in PR with at least two cardiometabolic risk factors (clinicaltrials.gov registration #NCT03975556). The intervention group received one individual nutritional counseling session on a portion-control culturally-tailored MedDiet. Daily text messages reinforced the counseling content for two months, and we supplied legumes and vegetable oils. Participants in the control group received cooking utensils and one standard portion-control nutritional counseling session that was reinforced with daily texts for two months. Text messages for each group were repeated for two more months. Outcome measures were assessed at baseline, 2 months, and 4 months. The primary outcome was a composite cardiometabolic improvement score;secondary outcomes included individual cardiometabolic factors;dietary intake, behaviors, and satisfaction;psychosocial factors;and the gut microbiome. Results PROMED was designed to be culturally appropriate, acceptable, accessible, and feasible for adults in PR. Strengths of the study include applying deep-structure cultural components, easing structural barriers, and representing a real-life setting. Limitations include difficulty with blinding and with monitoring adherence, and reduced timing and sample size. The COVID-19 pandemic influenced implementation, warranting replication. Conclusions If PROMED is proven efficacious in improving cardiometabolic health and diet quality, the findings would strengthen the evidence on the healthfulness of a culturally-appropriate MedDiet and support its wider implementation in clinical and population-wide disease-prevention programs.

ABSTRACT

This perspective article argues that anticipatory research into possible "emergency" response measures such as solar geoengineering will increase knowledge, and thus confidence, in any future decisions to either deploy or reject these technologies. Similarities between COVID and climate can reveal some perspective on the benefits of anticipatory vaccine research for anticipatory for solar geoengineering research. Although we deeply hope governments will aggressively reduce emissions and scale up adaptation efforts in time to avoid the worst climate impacts, we argue that the benefits of anticipatory solar geoengineer research currently outweigh the risks of not moving research forward.

ABSTRACT

Given the accelerated global shifts and disruptions to agrifood value chains, an approach is required that reveals multiple drivers, recognizable patterns, and behaviors that can be understood and navigated towards value chain resilience. This research shares roots with and builds further on resilience approaches, the concept of upgrading in global value chains and innovation to contribute to the study of agrifood value chain resilience. The analysis is based on narratives extracted from interviews with local actors in the chain. Narrative, as formed from a combination of temporal succession and causality, helps us track the chain's historical trajectory, identify critical historical and contemporary drivers of change and actors' adaptations to historical events, the latest being the Covid-19 pandemic. Our study finds that main drivers, such as natural hazards, market dynamics, actors' organization, and digital and technological innovation, have been key to Covid-19 adaptation. These constitute crucial areas for policy action and management of systemic risk. For example, previous experience with the fungal disease Foc TR4 one year before the Covid-19 pandemic has been perceived as a key factor in easing Covid-19 adaptation. The analysis shows that some shocks may be challenging to predict, while others may result from the chronic build-up of vulnerabilities, such as the impacts of climate change or the spread of transboundary diseases. As observed in this study, the backbone of overall agrifood value chain resilience and Covid-19 adaptation lie in experiential learning and build on the past;hence, identifying lessons from past innovations is crucial to finding solutions in novel contexts and to deriving opportunities for agrifood value chain development.

ABSTRACT

As novel SARS-CoV-2 Variants of Concern emerge, the efficacy of existing vaccines against COVID-19 is declining. A possible solution to this problem lies in the development of a live attenuated vaccine potentially able of providing cross-protective activity against a wide range of SARS-CoV-2 antigenic variants. Cold-adapted (ca) SARS-CoV-2 variants, Dubrovka-ca-B4 (D-B4) and Dubrovka-ca-D2 (D-D2), were obtained after long-term passaging of the Dubrovka (D) strain in Vero cells at reduced temperatures. Virulence, immunogenicity, and protective activity of SARS-CoV-2 variants were evaluated in experiments on intranasal infection of Syrian golden hamsters (Mesocricetus auratus). In animal model infecting with ca variants, the absence of body weight loss, the significantly lower viral titer and viral RNA concentration in animal tissues, the less pronounced inflammatory lesions in animal lungs as compared with the D strain indicated the reduced virulence of the virus variant. Single intranasal immunization with D-B4 and D-D2 variants induced the production of neutralizing antibodies in hamsters and protected them from infection with the D strain and the development of severe pneumonia. It was shown that for ca SARS-CoV-2 variants, the temperature-sensitive (ts) phenotype was not obligate for virulence reduction. Indeed, the D-B4 variant, which did not possess the ts phenotype but had lost the ability to infect human lung cells Calu-3, exhibited reduced virulence in hamsters. Consequently, the potential phenotypic markers of attenuation of ca SARS-CoV-2 variants are the ca phenotype, the ts phenotype, and the change in species specificity of the virus. This study demonstrates the great potential of SARS-CoV-2 cold adaptation as a strategy to develop a live attenuated COVID-19 vaccine.

ABSTRACT

The sports sector, specifically the field of personal trainer entrepreneurship, has been severely affected by the COVID-19 crisis. However, there are still few empirical studies that analyze how the actions taken before and during this crisis can affect sports entrepreneurs' performance. This research aims to analyze which combinations of sports entrepreneurs' personal characteristics and actions performed have been most and least effective in minimizing the negative impact of COVID-19 on their businesses. A validated online questionnaire was administered to personal trainer entrepreneurs from May to June 2020 before they reopened their facilities. Fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis (fsQCA) was performed to assess the impacts. The results show that both post-COVID measures (adaptation of the business model) and previous strategic orientation seemed essential. Specifically, high levels of sports entrepreneurs' resilience and innovation/R&D when competing against their closest competitors before the COVID-19 pandemic and the increased use of technologies (sports services digitization) during the pandemic have been essential to maintaining the performance of the sports business. Thus, improvements in the digital competencies of personal trainers' sports entrepreneurs, the development of strategic plans and activities related to innovation/R&D and process improvements are important measures to maintain the competitiveness of small sports businesses during crises.

ABSTRACT

Amid the 4th wave of COVID-19, Vietnam reopened its economy, which placed extra burdens on the COVID-19 waste management system. This study analyzed existing issues and recommended adaptations to secure appropriate management of COVID-19 waste under the ‘new normal' pandemic period. Results showed changes in COVID-19 waste characteristics (e.g., rapid rise in waste generation, lower percentage of plastic) and multiple other issues (e.g., presence of COVID-19 waste in municipal waste, lack of temporary storage sites and local treatment capacity), along with greater waste-handling responsibilities placed on authorities and higher infection risks. To adapt to the ‘new normal', introduction of separate handling routes and collaboration in waste treatment were recommended. Employing the network of pharmacies used for vaccination would require COVID-19 waste collection from scattered, small-scale sources as part of the waste management solution. Also, following the 4R initiatives (reduce, reuse, recycle, recovery) could help ease the burden on the country's waste system and provide additional opportunities to move towards a circular economy in the post-acute COVID-19 era. The findings should contribute to a safer co-existence with the virus through appropriate waste management in Vietnam and could be used to tackle waste problems in other developing countries. © 2022, Springer Japan KK, part of Springer Nature.

ABSTRACT

Although the role of agricultural cooperatives in supporting farmers to improve their positioning in the value chain is recognized, in Romania only 1% are members in associative structures, the cooperative system being quite poorly developed. However, despite the sudden onset and magnitude of the pandemic shock, many agricultural cooperatives have managed to adapt and mitigate the effects on their members, as evidenced by the analysis by counties, regions and nationwide of the evolution of some indicators of their economic activity, for the last 3 years with submitted balance sheets (2018-2020). In most regions, the reported total net profits were higher than the losses recorded, with a significant role being played mainly by second-tier cooperatives, which were better integrated into the agri-food system and, as a result, more resilient. By development regions, it was found that the most profitable cooperatives were located in the Nord-Vest and Sud-Muntenia regions. The highest average turnover was noticed in the Sud-Est and Nord-Vest. The areas of activity with the highest average turnover values were: poultry raising;wholesale trade in meat and meat products;wholesale trade in fruit and vegetables;processing and preserving fruit and vegetables;growing cereals (except for rice), leguminous crops and oilseeds;wholesale of live animals;wholesale trade in dairy products, eggs and edible oils and fats;growing bush fruits, strawberries and nuts. The large number of agricultural cooperatives established in 2021 (737, compared to those recorded throughout the period 2005-2020, 1749) shows that farmers have begun to believe in the benefits of the cooperative system and consider that by association they are better protected from the shocks they have to deal with in the agri-food system, especially in unforeseen conditions, such as those caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

ABSTRACT

The Covid-19 pandemic has generated alert and dynamic changes in industries and companies worldwide, and in response to the adaptation process, new ways with technological innovation have achieved resilience, and new sectors have emerged without precedent, mainly in some Ecuadorian sectors to promote economic reactivation, increasing the demand for new services. The objective of the research is to assess the impact of the Covid-19 global pandemic on the sector of Professional, Technical and Administrative activities in Ecuador for the year 2020. The research is descriptive, explanatory, and bibliographic, with a mixed methodology and a non-experimental cross-sectional investigation, adapting a non-probabilistic sampling, analytical method, and statistical analysis of data series. Among the most relevant results is that the global Covid-19 pandemic produced growth in the sector mentioned before. © 2022 Copyright for this paper by its authors.

ABSTRACT

Disasters are a complex phenomenon that calls for a steady and multi-disciplinary approach to help create a multi-layered picture of the vulnerability of hazards and risks for the community. India is highly vulnerable to natural disasters, losing about 2 percent of the Gross Domestic Product annually (World Bank 2003). Almost every part of the country falls in at least one hazard zone or other. The socioeconomic vulnerability makes it difficult for people to cope with the impact of these hazards. Humans adapt in a variety of ways that may often remain unnoticed and unorganized. Further, in order to manage the effects of climate-change- induced disasters, autonomous adaptation is frequently overlooked - both at national and international levels. This chapter looks at various disasters across Indian subcontinent, in which the community has been affected badly and how human resilience and adaptation have revived the society and led to sustainable development. The case studies in this chapter would cover the reasons for the disaster and corrective actions taken for some repeated disasters such as cyclones, earthquakes and the COVID-19 pandemic.

ABSTRACT

The present online study was an attempt to assess the mental health and daily activities of 60 public sector retirees, selected from Kolkata city areas through the snowball sampling method, during the second wave of Covid-19. To measure the mental health and to assess the daily activity status, Mental Health Inventory(Local adaptation by Jagdish&Srivastav, 1983) and a self-devised questionnaire respectively were used. The findings of the study revealed that the state of mental health of older retirees was worse than that of the younger retired group. Also, their activity level was lower compared to the latter. Besides, the condition of all retirees as a whole worsened because of remaining confined at home more than their frailing health. The covid pandemic had more impact on the mental health of the older group than the younger group, which were suffering more from covid induced mental illnesses. On the basis of the present findings, it is suggested that the family members, counselors, and health professionals should plan a strategy to combat the mental health issues of such elderly people.

ABSTRACT

Introduction. This paper demonstrates the importance of studying adaptive potential in students during a pandemic and its parameters as a basis for mental health and psychological well-being. The authors describe the structure and key parameters of adaptive potential in their relation to hardiness. This study aimed to investigate associations of psychological flexibility as a predictor of adaptability with other manifestations of adaptation mechanisms. This paper brings new insights into the dynamics of adaptability at different stages of adolescence. Methods. The study sample comprised 67 students aged 18 to 24 years (Mean ± SD = 20.7 ± 1.8). Diagnostic instruments: (a) the Hardiness Survey by S. Muddy, (b) Young Schema Questionnaire, YSQ-S3R, (c) Ways of Coping Questionnaire, WCQ, by R. Lazarus, and (d) Clinical Questionnaire for Detection and Evaluation of Neurotic States by K. K. Yakhin and D. M. Mendelevich. All statistical analyses were performed using IBM SPSS Statistics 27 software. Methods of mathematical statistics: Pearson’s correlation coefficient, parametric Student’s t-test, and Mann–Whitney U-test for independent samples. Results and Discussion. Correlation analysis showed the existence of strong inverse correlations of hardiness with maladaptive schemas, including ‘vulnerability’, ‘distrust’, ‘submission’, ‘failure’, ‘rigid standards’, ‘dependence/helplessness’, and ‘defectiveness’, as well as neurotic states and coping strategies. Therefore, the authors identified two contradictory trends in adaptation to the COVID-19 pandemic in different age groups. The scales of early maladaptive schemas (EMS) and coping strategies have numerous positive correlations, except for the ‘decision planning’ strategy, which correlates negatively with certain schemas. The authors consider EMS as a manifestation of psychological rigidity, which reduces adaptive potential. The absence of pronounced maladaptive schemas increases adaptive potential. There is a positive age-related dynamics in the development of individual adaptation capabilities. The resistance indicator increases and the EMS manifestation decreases with age. © 2022, Russian Psychological Society. All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: The article is devoted to the study of adaptation to the covid-19 pandemic conditions in Russian men and women in the first part of 2020. Respondents assessed the degree of potential danger of various types of social threats caused by the pandemic, as well as the level of their adaptation to changed living conditions during the first lockdown. Objective(s): The purpose of this study was to identify key differences in adaptation to pandemic conditions in groups of men and women. Method(s): The author's methodology was developed to assess the level of adaptation to COVID-19. The questionnaire included 6 scales on different aspects of life during the lockdown (for example, physical and emotional state, communication, employment during the pandemic, etc.). The sample was N = 80 (residents of Russia age 18-37). Result(s): Men significantly higher estimated the potential danger of an epidemic threat to themselves than women. The level of adaptation to conditions caused by theCOVID-19 pandemic also differed in two gender groups according to t-test on the scale "Employment in a pandemic": men were better adapted to work or study in conditions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic than women. Conclusion(s): This can be interpreted from the point of view of the stereotype existing in Russian culture which postulates the performance of household duties and child care is more perceived as a woman's responsibility. The adaptation of women to remote work during the lockdown was forced to be combined with an increased workload in the family and household sphere.

ABSTRACT

Disasters annually ravage numerous African countries. Flooding is the most severe and prevalent adverse event and has serious implications for sustainable development. As the world is currently facing the COVID-19 pandemic, disasters such as flooding are still occurring but limited attention is being paid. This research analyzes the cause of flooding in Nigeria and Ghana, two countries regularly affected by floods. Previous analysis of the causes of flooding has mainly been done on a national scale. This work adopts a transnational approach by studying the flooding phenomena in both countries. It highlights an opportunity for international partnership in disaster-risk reduction (DRR) as both Nigeria and Ghana are signatories to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction that advocates an understanding of disaster risk and aims to foster international cooperation. Appreciating the root causes of flooding is the first step in building awareness of the common problem that could be the foundation of seeking and adopting solutions. A systematic review of peer-reviewed papers was conducted. This study finds that the underlying drivers of flooding are similar in the two nations and advocates research and data-sharing as ways of partnering to tackle the common problem. This finding has the potential to promote and facilitate capacity building for DRR and flood-risk management (FRM). Potential solutions could also be scaled to other countries of comparable profiles facing related flooding challenges. This approach is likely to yield better and quicker results while presenting opportunities for partnership in achieving the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that has already suffered COVID-19-related setbacks.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: To quantify differences in preparedness for and adaptations to COVID-19 in a cohort sample of New York City residents. METHODS: A proportional quota sample (n=1,020) of individuals residing in New York City during the COVID-19 pandemic participated in a Qualtrics web survey. Quotas were set for age, sex, race, and income to mirror the population of New York City based on the 2018 American Community Survey. RESULTS: Low self-efficacy, low social support, and low sense of community increased the odds of securing provisions to prepare for COVID-19. Being an essential worker, poor mental health, and children in the household reduced the likelihood of engaging in preparedness practices. Essential workers and individuals with probable serious mental illness were less likely to report preparedness planning for the pandemic. CONCLUSIONS: The findings contribute to evolving theories of preparedness. There are differences across the sample in preparedness types, and different kinds of preparedness are associated with different household characteristics. Findings suggest that public officials and others concerned with population wellbeing might productively turn attention to education and outreach activities indexed to these characteristics.

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 crisis has forced the European Parliament to face a sudden process of digitalisation and remote participation. Therefore, it is a test of its institutional resilience and its capacity to ensure a working democracy. This chapter discusses how the pandemic has affected internal procedures and the role of different actors. It draws on an online survey and in-depth interviews to explain (1) the main processes of adaptation;(2) to what extent these processes reflect radical or rather incremental changes;(3) how these changes have been perceived by different categories of EP actors and (4) which changes might survive the pandemic. We show that the sense of urgency and necessity given by the crisis has accelerated a process of digitalisation and centralisation that was already in motion, leaving a long-lasting imprint on the working culture of the European Parliament. © 2023, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

ABSTRACT

Objective. This study aims to understand how adult men adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic. Methods. Qualitative study involving 45 adult men residing in Brazil in 2020. Data were obtained from a Web Survey and treated using Reflective Thematic Analysis and interpreted in the light of Callista Roy's Adaptation Model. Results. The COVID-19 pandemic mobilized in men the ways of adaptation that are configured in: mobilization of the physiological-physical and regulatory dimension: adjustments in the sleep pattern, dietary pattern, and maintenance of physical activity; group self-concept identity: managing emotions; role function: self-knowledge and self-care; interdependence: adjustments in the marital relationship, family ties and paternity, investment in training and studies and control of excessive consumption of content on cell phones. Conclusion. The perception of the own vulnerability favored the entry of men into ways of adaptation in search of balance during the pandemic, motivating them to move through practices of taking care of themselves and taking care of others. Markers of psycho-emotional distress alert to adherence to new modes of care capable of promoting healthy transitions in the face of disruptions and uncertainties generated by the pandemic. This evidence can support the establishment of goals for nursing care aimed at men.


Objetivo. Comprender cómo se estructuran los modos de adaptación de los hombres adultos a la pandemia de COVID-19. Métodos. Estudio cualitativo que involucró 45 hombres adultos en Brasil en 2020. Los datos se recolectaron mediante la Encuesta Web y a continuación se sometieron al Análisis Temático Reflexivo e interpretados bajo el Modelo de Adaptación de Callista Roy. Resultados. La pandemia de COVID-19 movilizó en los hombres modos de adaptación que se configuran en: movilización de la dimensión fisiológico-física y reguladora: ajustes en el patrón del sueño, la alimentación y el mantenimiento de la actividad física; autoconcepto grupal de identidad: gestión de las emociones; función de rol: autoconocimiento y autocuidado; interdependencia: ajustes en la relación conyugal, vinculación familiar y paternidad, inversión en formación y estudios, y control del consumo excesivo de contenidos en el dispositivo móvil. Conclusión. La percepción de la propia vulnerabilidad favoreció el ingreso de los hombres a modos de adaptación en busca del equilibrio durante la pandemia, lo que los estimuló a transitar por prácticas de cuidarse a sí mismos y cuidar de los demás. Los marcadores de sufrimiento psicoemocional alertan sobre la adhesión a nuevos modos de atención capaces de promover transiciones saludables ante las disrupciones e incertidumbres generadas por la pandemia. Esta evidencia puede apoyar el establecimiento de metas para el cuidado de enfermería hacia los hombres.

ABSTRACT

The Covid-19 pandemic entered Indonesia in early 2020 and has affected all aspects of human life especially consumption patterns. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, consumers and businesses have switched their transaction patterns from offline to online. Apart from that, this study will also discuss health consciousness because people also know the health effects of consuming too much or too often instant noodles. [...]with the many health issues arising from excessive consumption of instant noodles, this research will become more interesting when analyzed regarding the effect of health awareness on brand loyalty to instant noodles through consumer satisfaction. 2.LITERATURE REVIEW AND HYPOTHESES 2.1 Customer Brand Loyalty Brand loyalty measures how strongly consumers are "bound" to a particular brand (Tjiptnono, 2011: 110). According to So et al. (in Rahmawati and Sanaji, 2015: 252), brand loyalty is formed because of the main role of consumer experience when consuming services from the company. 2.2 Customer Satisfaction According to Zeithaml, Bitner, and Dwayne (2009, p.104), consumer satisfaction is a consumer's assessment of a product or service in terms of assessing whether the product or service has met the needs and expectations of consumers. Consumers tend to interpret prices through subjective perceptions and transfer them as "expensive" or "cheap" concepts in their memory.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: This study aims to explore nursing home and home care managers' strategies in handling the COVID-19 pandemic. DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH: This study has a qualitative design with semistructured individual interviews conducted digitally by videophone (Zoom). Eight managers from nursing homes and five managers from home care services located in a large urban municipality in eastern Norway participated. Systematic text condensation methodology was used for the analysis. FINDINGS: The managers used several strategies to handle challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including being proactive and thinking ahead in terms of possible scenarios that might occur, continuously training of staff in new procedures and routines and systematic information sharing at all levels, as well as providing different ways of disseminating information for staff, service users and next-of-kins. To handle staffing challenges, managers used strategies such as hiring short-term staff that were temporary laid off from other industries and bringing in students. ORIGINALITY/VALUE: The COVID-19 pandemic heavily affected health-care systems worldwide, which has led to many health-care studies. The situation in nursing homes and home care services, which were strongly impacted by the pandemic and in charge of a vulnerable group of people, has not yet received enough attention in research. This study, therefore, seeks to contribute to this research gap by investigating how managers in nursing homes and home care services used different strategies to handle the COVID-19 pandemic.
