"Abstract Background: The COVID-19 pandemic brought numerous threats to public health and highlighted the Brazilian health system's inability to cope with the emergency situation. " We review data on COVID-19-related deaths in Brazil in 2020-21 to display the devastating effects of the pandemic on the Brazilian population. To determine COVID-19 specific mortality risks by age, sex, and educational level, we used the population estimates from 2020-21. The temporal evolution of COVID-19 deaths in Brazil was shown by a graph of the daily deaths from January 2020 to December 2021 by sex. Result: The overall COVID-19 mortality incidence was 14. 8 percent. Concerning the number of orphanages due to COVID-19, we estimated that 4,830 children under the age of 18 years old lost their mothers during the pandemic, with an orphanage rate of 7. 5 percent among children aged 0-17 years. Conclusions: Brazil's COVID-19 lethality prevalence was at 2. 2%, twice the global lethality rate. ".

"This study aims to quantify and characterize changes in acute hospital healthcare use in Ireland during the first wave of COVID-19, helping healthcare system planning and recovery. " Comparison of time periods pre- and post-CoVID-19 hospital admissions estimated at 81,712 fewer Emergency Department presentations, 19,692 fewer admissions from ED, and 210,357 fewer non-COVID-19 hospital admissions than expected based on pre-COVID-19 activity. Although the consequences of delayed and missed care will only become fully apparent over time, recovery planning must begin immediately. COVID-19's long-term, health care framework provides a comprehensive, high-quality, sustainable and resilient health service capable of satisfying population health requirements and responding to future pandemics.

"Background: During the COVID-19 pandemic period, Dengue hemorrhagic fever cases increased strongly. " Purpose: This report defines, explains, and assesses dengue hemorrhagic fever incidence in Bali Province from 2015 to 2020, as well as in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Methods: The various aspects of descriptive research with case series design were used in the study. The analysis used an environmental epidemiology approach to determine the health profile of Bali Province. Results: The incidence of dengue hemorrhagic fever in Bali's province fluctuated between 2015 and 2020. In 2016, the highest number of dengue cases in 2016 was 20,306, and they decreased from 2017 to 2019. Conclusion: The prevalence of dengue hemorrhagic fever outbreaks in Bali in 2015--2017 increased dramatically, and mortality due to dengue during the COVID-19 pandemic saw a substantial rise. ".
