ABSTRACT

The coronavirus disease is a respiratory tract disorder which causes pneumonia-like symptoms in severe patients and mild flu-like symptoms in mild symptomatic cases first noticed in Wuhan, China. DNA sequencing and further analysis shows it to be 79% like the 2002 SARS-CoV and 50% like the 2012 MERS-CoV. It was also observed that the novel coronavirus’s spike protein was larger and very different from its previously known strains. For diagnosis, multiple strategies were developed and real time reverse-transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) technique was determined to be the best technique. The CT scan was also found effective majorly for the continuous assessment of the disease. Treatment strategies used in previous outbreaks were looked into and put to trial like convalescent plasma therapy. Vaccine development using various genetic engineering strategies are going on across the world. To contain the spread of the disease, countries with positive cases were put under lockdown to break the chain of spread. These lockdowns forced industries, offices, schools, religious places, stadiums, travel, and many more to close which impacted the economies of all the major countries. Lesser human interaction and more use of social media has impacted the social aspects of human life. Cases of domestic violence and mental stress increased among households. Economic stimulus package was announced by various countries to curb the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. © 2022 SAGE Publications.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: The purpose of this study is twofold. First, to consider the ways in which transportation could be more sustainable in North Cyprus, which is mostly dependent on tourism and higher education as a small island destination. Second, to investigate current issues in the transportation sector related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Design/methodology/approach: This study employed a qualitative approach, and a descriptive analysis technique was used to analyse semi-structured interviews, conducted by telephone and face-to-face. To investigate current problems in the North Cyprus transportation sector - one of the most affected by the pandemic - travel agencies were chosen as the study's population and research participants were selected purposively. Findings: The findings indicate that the unpredictability of domestic policies combined with the structural challenges confronting North Cyprus contribute to unsustainable current transportation policies. North Cyprus transport and tourism both suffered significant losses during the pandemic but travel agencies were disproportionately impacted. Our study results showed that exorbitant ticket prices, taxes and transportation costs have emerged as the most significant issues in the transportation sector. Research limitations/implications: More efficient and accurate policies that meet the needs of the sector and give opportunity for development are required. This is a critical issue for policymakers to address, as they also represent a significant barrier to the sector's long-term competitiveness. Originality/value: To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first qualitative study to look at North Cyprus' transportation problems from the perspective of travel agencies and the impact of the pandemic. It is thought that this study will contribute to the development of solutions for transportation problems and sustainable practices in small island developing states.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: The purpose of the study was to provide a comparative analysis on the psychological and socio-cultural impacts of COVID-19 on victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) in South Africa (SA) and the USA. Design/methodology/approach: The authors collected media and scholarly articles that dealt with IPV victims during the early phase of the pandemic. This study focused solely on SA and the USA because of their unique contexts and the fact that the authors are residents of these countries. The authors observed how both presidents dealt with IPV amidst the COVID 19 pandemic, especially when stay-at-home orders were in place. Aspects relating to the psychological and socio-cultural impacts amidst the pandemic were considered. Findings: The authors found that in both countries, many black women from low socio-economic backgrounds experience IPV. Being in isolated spaces with their perpetrators prohibits victims from reporting the abuse. As the world attempts to curb the spread of COVID-19 infections, effective strategies have been suggested for victims and perpetrators. The authors found the approaches of the two governments (until the Biden Administration in 2021) to be starkly different in terms of effective strategies and the neglect and downplaying of the extent of one or both pandemics (i.e. COVID-19 and IPV). Pro-safety, equality, gender and race-conscious embracing approaches to overcome IPV are urgently needed. Originality/value: The paper focused on IPV during the early phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. It provides relevant information about IPV in both countries, especially when stay-at-home orders are in place. © 2022, Errolyn Gordon and Gloria Sauti.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: This paper offers a novel approach for conducting impactful research on emerging topics or practices. This method is particularly relevant in the face of emerging phenomena and new dynamics, such as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on supply chain risks. Because these new phenomena and dynamics are relatively unexplored, little prior knowledge exists in literature and industry, and they represent a large opportunity and/or challenge to practitioners. Design/methodology/approach: The action principles research (APR) approach, as a newer version of critically engaged research (CER), offers comparison against more traditional empirical or intervention-based research. The authors illustrate the approach with a pandemic risk-management study. Findings: The APR approach originated in the information technology field. It is highly applicable for researchers who are seeking to more expeditiously support decision making and actioning on new dynamics and emerging topics and practice in supply chain management than is allowed by traditional methods and longitudinal CER. Originality/value: In the context of ongoing calls for relevance, impact and actionable findings on pandemic risk management, this paper describes an approach to developing timely findings that are actionable for practitioners and that advance science around dynamic and emerging topics or practices. We hope this will grow societal value of research, particularly in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and the new dynamics and uncertainties that managers face in modern supply chains. © 2022, Emerald Publishing Limited.

ABSTRACT

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the socio-economic well-being of people either in urban or rural areas. The Covid-19 cases and fatalities that concentrated in major urban areas in Malaysia. However, as the pandemic progressed, the rural community faced health vulnerability due to the Covid-19 pandemic threat. Among the significant impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic are income generation, economic activity work, and health vulnerability, especially the rural community involved in rural economic activities such as agriculture and fishery. Therefore, this paper aims to investigate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the socio-economic well-being of rural communities in Malaysia. The case study selection is in Mersing, Pontian and Batu Pahat involving three villages using GIS mapping. The methodology used is quantitative research through a household survey conducted using 182 heads of households based on the economic and social dimensions. The finding reveals that most of the target group experienced a decline in income generation, economic activity restriction, and education issues. Furthermore, there are also decreasing in the economically active population (age 15-60) in the village. As a result, this study is essential in formulating a post-Covid-19 recovery plan regarding socio-economic well-being impacts and the revival of rural community well-being in Malaysia through Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping.

ABSTRACT

Covid-19 is caused by aetiological agent for SARS-CoV-2. The disease has caused pandemic responsible for deaths and economic loss worldwide. Therefore, novel drugs of covid-19 primarily using herbs are urgently needed. Cabya (Piper retrofractum Vahl.) is a popular spice and also traditionally applied for herbal medicines. This study conducted an in silico experiment to screen methanolic active compounds in cabya and test their inhibitory activities against main protease enzyme (Mpro) as receptor of SARS-CoV-2. The in silico approach complied with molecular docking protocols enabling to evaluate performance of the compounds to inhibit Mpro. Two common drugs were used as control, i.e. chloroquine and ivermectin. As the results, molecular docking showed a promising inhibition by active compounds in cabya;in this regard, beta-sitosterol demonstrated the strongest inhibition against Mpro with binding affinity -7,5 kcal/mol, which is better than chloroquine (-4.8 kcal/mol) and close to ivermectin (-8,5 kcal/mol). The interaction resulted from two hydrogen bonds with amino acids ARG A131 and ASP A289 at distance of 15Å and 2,49 Å, respectively. The inhibition site of beta-sitosterol was similar to that of ivermectin. This research revealed the potential use of cabya for covid-19 treatment through restriction of molecular binding between virus and receptor.

ABSTRACT

Digitalization is gradually spreading through the transport and logistics industry, and the new technologies are profoundly reshaping the market, producing radical changes in every single stage of the supply chain to help reduce expenses and improve efficiency. Transport, in many respects, is an industry that is highly open to automation and implementation of IoT (Internet of Things) solutions. The successful integration of IoT technologies is likely to bring considerable benefits for transportation companies, such as diminished transportation delays, sporadic operator errors, preventive measures for poor cargo tracking and monitoring, IT failures and identity theft, in addition to the effective utilization of big data for the provision of automated real-time business analytics solutions. The present paper attempts to critically examine the impact of COVID-19 on the digitalization of the transport sector in Bulgaria, and offers, thereupon, a systematization of the major problems the enterprises face. © 2022 Elsevier B.V..

ABSTRACT

We propose a conceptual model of acceptance of contact tracing apps based on the privacy calculus perspective. Moving beyond the duality of personal benefits and privacy risks, we theorize that users hold social considerations (i.e., social benefits and risks) that underlie their acceptance decisions. To test our propositions, we chose the context of COVID-19 contact tracing apps and conducted a qualitative pre-study and longitudinal quantitative main study with 589 participants from Germany and Switzerland. Our findings confirm the prominence of individual privacy calculus in explaining intention to use and actual behavior. While privacy risks are a significant determinant of intention to use, social risks (operationalized as fear of mass surveillance) have a notably stronger impact. Our mediation analysis suggests that social risks represent the underlying mechanism behind the observed negative link between individual privacy risks and contact tracing apps' acceptance. Furthermore, we find a substantial intention–behavior gap.

ABSTRACT

IntroductionFirearm injuries are a public health crisis in the US. The National Death Index (NDI) is a well-established, comprehensive database managed by the National Center for Health Statistics at the CDC. In this methodology paper we describe our experience accessing and linking data from the NDI to our regional, hospital-based violent injury database to identify out-of-hospital deaths from firearms. METHODS: We outline the key steps of our submission to the NDI. Data were collected from research team meeting notes, team member emails with NDI staff, and information provided from the NDI website and supplementary guides. Few of our collaborators or university partner investigators had accessed or used data from the NDI. We discuss the online NDI Processing Portal data request, data preparation and receipt from the NDI, troubleshooting tips, and a timeline of events. RESULTS: Our query to the NDI returned 12 034 records of 12 219 firearm-injured patient records from 2010 and 2019. The record match rate was 98.5%. DISCUSSION: Linking hospital-based data sets with NDI data can provide valuable information on out-of-hospital deaths. This has the potential to improve the quality of longitudinal morbidity and mortality calculations in hospital-based patient cohorts. We encountered logistic and administrative challenges in completing the online NDI Processing Portal and in preparing and receiving data from the NDI. It is our hope that the lessons learnt presented herein will help facilitate easy and streamlined acquisition of valuable NDI data for other clinical researchers. WHAT THIS STUDY ADDS: - A step-by-step guide for clinical researchers of how to apply to access data from the National Death Index (NDI).- Advice and lessons learned on how to efficiently and effectively access data from the NDI.- A well-described methodology to improve the quality of longitudinal morbdity and mortality calculations in hospital-based cohorts of firearm injured patients.What is already known on this subject:- There is a need for robust, longitudinal data sources that reliably track morbidity and mortality among firearm injured patients in the United States.- The NDI is a well-established, comprehensive database that holds death records for all 50 states, which provides valuable mortality data to the public health and medical research community.

ABSTRACT

NIHR (National Institute for Health Research) Devices for Dignity MedTech Cooperative (D4D) and NIHR Children and Young People MedTech Cooperative (CYPMedTech) have established track records in keeping patient and public involvement (PPI) at the core of medical technology development, evaluation and implementation. The 2020 global COVID-19 pandemic presented significant challenges to maintaining this crucial focus. In this paper we describe prior successful methodologies and share examples of the adaptations made in order to continue to engage with patients and the public throughout the pandemic and beyond. We reflect on learning gained from these experiences, and new areas of scope and focus relating to broadening the reach of engagement and representation, along with associated resource requirements and impact metrics.

ABSTRACT

Social media platforms have become a common place for information exchange among their users. People leave traces of their emotions via text expressions. A systematic collection, analysis, and interpretation of social media data across time and space can give insights into local outbreaks, mental health, and social issues. Such timely insights can help in developing strategies and resources with an appropriate and efficient response. This study analysed a large Spatio-temporal tweet dataset of the Australian sphere related to COVID19. The methodology included a volume analysis, topic modelling, sentiment detection, and semantic brand score to obtain an insight into the COVID19 pandemic outbreak and public discussion in different states and cities of Australia over time. The obtained insights are compared with independently observed phenomena such as government-reported instances.

ABSTRACT

This investigation presents a case study on the influence of the tourist impact that the car race World Touring Car Cup (WTCR), in the Vila Real International Circuit, has on the city, a place traditionally known for its Cultural Tourism. In fact, after the Troika Crisis, and until the COVID pandemic emerged, Portugal was experiencing a boom in Tourism, particularly on the coast and in cities like Porto, Lisbon, Cascais, or Braga. Aware of this situation, the cities of the countryside start defining strategies to take advantage of this favorable wave for tourism, opting for areas where they would have more diversity offer. Given this, it is proposed Cultural and Sport Tourism as the best options for Vila Real city. Thus, it was decided to understand the connection that sport has with tourism and culture. For this purpose, the case study methodology and quantitative technics were used, for a better understanding of the connection of the concepts, in the perception of the public that traveled to the city to watch the races and the event in general, as well as the public that obligatorily attended the races for living in the city and/or on the circuit route and those audiences who watch the event via online transmission. It is intended, therefore, to understand the dimension of the Cultural and Sports Tourism that is experienced in the city, attending its social, cultural, and economic impacts, and if it has been rising according to the growth of the event and its internationality. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.

ABSTRACT

Although tourism, as a system, develops risk prevention and mitigation strategies, the direct, indirect, and induced generated shock by the Covid-19 pandemic is different when compared to previous high-impact events. This pandemic is more intense and conducive to structural changes. In this context, tourists’ perceptions affect their behaviour and decisions, with adverse results in Tourism consumption, and the safety, protection, and health risks generate a cause-effect relationship on the specificities of destinations, the valences of infrastructure, compliance with protocols, and the adoption of good practices (Seabra et al. in Int J Tour Cities 7:463–491, [1]). The prevailing opinion amongst specialists is that Tourism will only reach pre-Covid levels between 2023 and 2024 whereby the proposed approach and methodology prove to be opportune because they allow a more detailed knowledge of the characterization of demand and constitute a relevant information base for structuring the offer. Thus, through the systematic review of the literature, it is relevant to approach the behaviour of tourists in a post-pandemic context, through the meta-analysis of studies carried out in 2020 and 2021, emphasizing the conclusions obtained, the dynamics of their comparison, and their potential impact. The results achieved suggest the need to readjust models, methods, and processes, as well as to reconfigure means and interactions, in order to add value in the design of instruments, in the implementation of solutions and, in the management of expectations. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.

ABSTRACT

The recent coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic outbreak affected our society greatly, offering a chance to rebuild and rethink our way of living. Energy, as a driving factor of everyday life faced an unprecedented shock. How big was this shock for both the economic and political levels? No consolidated study exists where both aspects are considered. To rethink our way of living, we should reconsider the energy policies strategies for the upcoming years. To date, such an impact has not yet been quantified using price forecasting mathematical models. We have therefore developed a methodology, to quantify the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on European energy market. This paper is addressing the following question “Is the COVID-19 pandemic a Black Swan event?”Evidently COVID-19 had significant consequences on the European energy market. Stocks suffered historical minimum prices duringthis year, with a greater impact on coal technologies than renewable ones. Moreover, stock prices return is showing unexpected fluctuations, hence resulting in incorrectly predicted price forecasts. Despite the initial shock, the energy market is returning to pre-crisis levels, with the renewable technologies leading the comeback. Based on our findings and methods, we conclude that COVID-19 pandemic was not a Black Swan event. We foresee to extend our methodology beyond European energy market and the short-term effects of the pandemic with possible application on the impact of policy makers on energy models. © ECOS 2021 - 34th International Conference on Efficency, Cost, Optimization, Simulation and Environmental Impact of Energy Systems.

ABSTRACT

This article looks at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global palm oil market as well as the post-pandemic outlook for the market. It is indicated that, in the long-term, the post-pandemic outlook for the palm oil industry remains bright. Since the last quarter of 2019, palm oil supply and demand are back in balance, while stocks are declining. Prices have been relatively high for most of 2020 and 2021. Also discussed are the proven benefits of palm oil and the opportunity of the palm oil sector to achieve UN goals.

ABSTRACT

With the current goal of reaching a 100% electrification rate of the world population, the importance of PV/battery or solar home systems (SHS) grows as the one of the most viable solution for the most remote and scattered communities. Their modularity and capacity to harvest local resources is particularly relevant for that purpose. The stochasticity of solar energy and of the demand can however lead to energy shortages in the most critical periods of the day, while an over-sized system represents an important increase in the levelized cost of energy (LCOE). To capture these dynamics and the tradeoff between installed capacity and lost load probability (LLP), 16 different demand scenarios are modeled and analyzed. An optimal size for SHS is determined using a linear programming model with different levels of LLP in each scenario. The Demand time series are constructed using a stochastic demand generator that simulates the behavior of each appliance on a household. The information to create the base-case scenario was obtained with field surveys of a rural community in Cochabamba, Bolivia (Raqaypampa). Each scenario has different combinations of appliances, including the intensive use of radio to comply with guidelines of remote education (due to the COVID-19 crisis). The result shows that there is a high reduction of the LCOE in the lower range of LLP. This reduction reaches a breaking point where a higher LLP does not represent a significant further reduction of the LCOE. An empirical mathematical formulation is proposed to calculate this inflection point and a Pareto front plotted to assess the tradeoff between quality of service and LCOE. © ECOS 2021 - 34th International Conference on Efficency, Cost, Optimization, Simulation and Environmental Impact of Energy Systems.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: This paper aimed to examine the psycho-social aspects of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Pakistan. The study was conducted in Pakistan by using an online survey technique. The rationale to opt for this method was mainly based on the country's lock-down situations, social distancing and for the care of respondents. Design/methodology/approach: A total of 1,536 individuals participated from different parts of the country. An attitudinal scale was administered consisting of statements to measure (dis)agreement of the individuals facing the current situations of COVID-19. The ethical considerations and confidentiality of the respondents were opted by describing the purpose of research on the first page of the questionnaire. Findings: The study findings showed that the cost of personal protective equipment (PPE), social isolation and loss of intimacy have favourable positive effects on the psychological problems of individuals through the mediation of fake news and misinformation during COVID-19. Furthermore, the study findings were interpreted as per the effects of current situations of epidemic, i.e. COVID-19 on the psycho-social life of individuals. Research limitations/implications: This paper is purely limited to the quantitative approach including variables, i.e. COVID-19, risk of infection, social distancing, cost of PPE, social isolation, fake news and psychological problems. Practical implications: The present research will enhance the awareness and knowledge regarding psychological problems faced by the individuals during COVID-19. It will be a significant addition to the existing body of knowledge in the field of health and well-being. It will also provide guidelines to students, research scholars, policymakers and academicians to develop policies in future to improve the health of people during epidemics such as COVID-19 and similar nature of outbreak in the future. Originality/value: This paper focused on an important gap in the research on COVID-19 in the country in the context of COVID-19, risk of infection, social distancing, cost of PPE, social isolation, fake news and psychological problems.

ABSTRACT

The conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic change the perspective of final students in completing their studies. This research is intended to describe how the final students of the faculty of teacher training and education studied during the Covid-19 pandemic. The research approach is quantitative with a survey-descriptive type of research, through random sampling, namely all students at the end of class 2016 and class 2017 from 21 undergraduate study programs in the Teacher Training and Education Faculty, Lambung Mangkurat University. From the distributed instruments, 145 students filled out the instruments. The data collection instrument used a questionnaire, descriptive statistical analysis techniques. The results showed that the general perception of optimistic/pessimistic students was that 57% completed their studies during the pandemic, The nature of pride in completing the study lies in strongly agreeing (64%) so that it can be interpreted that students have great pride. The pride criteria found are accomplished, successful, fulfilled, self-worth, and productive.

ABSTRACT

Animal health and diseases have a major impact on human health and behaviour (i.e. zoonosis, schools, communication etc), food production (African Swine Fever), economy (direct and indirect costs) and trade (export, import, intercommunity trade). Even almost all countries have implemented all kind of management measures, humanity still face up today huge problems, for example the most recent experience, being COVID-19, which ceased almost all human activities in the world and changed people behaviour for several years (2019 up today). For this reason, the paper represents a systemic review of recent information on different management indicators developed - epidemiological/economic etc in order to assist managers (politically, authorities, farmers, all the people involved) to prevent, survey and control such diseases, to develop best practices for benchmarking their country health systems/farm management system etc, and finally to led to an effective and efficient management of infectious disease in livestock during crisis. In this regard, the retrospective method was used and the information reviewed was collected from the latest information published between 2019-2022, available on WHO, Economic Impact, CDC websites, where through a tremendous and collaborative effort across different public health organisations, scientists in the world, dashboards and standard indicators publicly available have been developed. The results of this study demonstrate that the managers of livestock during crisis, the competent authorities, the governments have to consider, undertake and include these kind of tools/indicators in their management in order to assist them to develop their emergency preparedness capacity and to manage in an effective way the infectious diseases during crisis respectively prevention, early detection, rapid response, identifying their vulnerabilities etc.

ABSTRACT

This paper is the most recent among reviews on global energy sustainability (economic, environmental, and social pillars/impacts) framework published by the author, updated to year 2021, expanded by considering the key effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on sustainable energy development, and calling attention to the need for quantitative integration of steadfast resilience planning, analysis, and application with sustainable development. It also updates the list of currently main game-changing energy-related issues, as well as introducing some of the planning status for countering the energy-related pandemic impacts in the extremely transient energy field, which often results in significant consequences for humanity and can seldom be easily foreseen or recognized early enough to allow timely correctional reactions. A brief description of the recent estimates and forecasts of the energy resources, uses, and the dizzy and hence ruinous volatility of their prices (also in the absence of pandemics), is presented. Some recommended sustainable paths to the future are presented and briefly discussed. © ECOS 2021 - 34th International Conference on Efficency, Cost, Optimization, Simulation and Environmental Impact of Energy Systems.
