  • This paper includes survey results from seventeen (17) full-scale water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) to explore their technical, operational, maintenance and management related challenges during COVID-19. Based on the survey results, limited monitoring and maintenance of instrumentation and sensors are among the critical factors during the pandemic which resulted in poor data quality in several WRRFs. Due to lockdown of cities and countries, most of the facilities observed interruptions…
  • Peru is one of the countries with the highest incidence of tuberculosis and multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in the world. Although public health measures adopted in the country have improved the care, diagnosis and management of patients with tuberculosis, there are still failures in the control of the disease in the country, especially of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis and among the prison population or people living with HIV. The COVID-19 pandemic has added a great burden to the Peruvian…

  • BACKGROUND: Ivermectin, an antiparasitic agent used to treat parasitic infestations, inhibits the replication of viruses in vitro. The molecular hypothesis of ivermectin's antiviral mode of action suggests an inhibitory effect on severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) replication in the early stages of infection. Currently, evidence on efficacy and safety of ivermectin for prevention of SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 treatment is conflicting.
  • Pain is a common but often ignored symptom in COVID-19 patients. Early and adequate treatment with detailed pain assessment in these patients may reduce the risk of pain chronicization, and mood dysregulation. To provide analgesia, paracetamol can be listed as the first option in these patients, and then NSAIDs can also be reliably used for pain management in patients with COVID-19 if there are no absolute contraindications such as kidney failure or gastric bleeding. Codeine is also a good…
  • According to WHO's definition, self-medication is the use of drugs to treat self-diagnosed disorders or symptoms. There is a high risk of self-medication on the general population, mainly in South America. This phenomenon has been increasing with the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak, generating concerns, and anxieties in people, especially during the period of confinement. The present study used an online survey to determine the standard self-medication practices, risk, and medication-severity-index of the…
