Item in Clipboard CiteDisplay options Display options Format Abstract This narrative review explores the full scope of harmful psychological effects of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease of 2019) pandemic on FLHCWs (Frontline healthcare workers). Additionally, we highlight the risk factors for worse outcomes. A literature review identified 24 relevant papers included in this synthesis. The majority of studies reported a high number of mental health conditions in HCWs (Healthcare workers) overall. Working in the frontline setting was repeatedly identified as an independent risk factor for poorer mental health. Additional risk factors, such as gender, occupational pressure, and low level of support from hospital administration, family, and the community, were also commonly identified. In the past, defined interventions have been shown to mitigate the psychological impact of high-stress situations on frontline workers. This review is aimed at identifying individuals at higher risk to help effectively target preventative measures in future stress situations in our healthcare system. Copyright © 2021 Luise J.

MIT主導の研究チームがSARS-CoV-2ゲノムの包括的マップを作成

COVID-19 パンデミックが始まってから数カ月後の2020年初頭、科学者らはCOVID-19感染症の原因ウイルスであるSARS-CoV-2の全ゲノム配列を決定することができた。その時点で、その遺伝子の多くはすでに判明していたが、タンパク質をコードする遺伝子の全容は解明されていなかった。今回、MITの研究者らが広範な比較ゲノム研究を行った結果、SARS-CoV-2のゲノムについて、最も正確で完全な遺伝子アノテーションを作成した。 この研究結果は、2021年5月11日にNature…
