Long-term dynamics of informal employment and its relationship with the poverty of the Russian population against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic

The aim of the study is to determine the prevalence of informal jobs in the Russian labour market and determining its connection to economic hardship. According to estimates, about a quarter of Russian employees were included in the informal labour market for their main or secondary jobs over the past 20 years, on average. According to a regression report, there is a statistically significant correlation between participation in the informal labour market and financial poverty: fully informal jobs in 2019 is correlated with higher chances of the respondent's household falling into poverty, and lower chances in 2020.

Riding the waves. The long perspective on the COVID-19 pandemic from UK's local food system actors in 2020-21.

This paper explores Covid-19 pandemic as an ongoing event from the viewpoint of local food businesses and organisations in the United Kingdom. Local food system actors coped with the pandemic period, contributing to the UK's food security at a time when many people were facing food access issues. The study discusses how local food system actors coped with the pandemic period, contributing to the country's food security. Both from the public and by governance actors, local organisations working on food poverty described a sudden increase in demand for their services. Local food businesses faced a variety of challenges during this period, including the closed nature of existing groups and networks, despite the fact that LFAs' efforts on the food poverty front persist; however, local food businesses faced a variety of challenges in contributing to this campaign. The national lockdown and restrictions on family celebrations were declared just before Christmas 2020, having a major effect on LFA staff's morale, who had been active both on the supply chain and emergency food distribution fronts. LFAs in both food production and in the third sector are beginning to be affected by supply chain constraints, possibly underpinned by the combined effects of Brexit and the pandemic on labour availability and product movement, which may be directly impacted by both supply chain and third sector issues. They also confirmed that a number of local food processor firms were closing down, and that people working in third sector companies were resigning.

Probing the long-term thrombotic safety of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines by image-based single-cell monitoring of platelet activity

Although the pathogenesis of VITT is uncertain, a new hypothesis is that the adenoviral vector vaccines produce antibodies that recognize platelet factor 4, leading to platelet activation and aggregation, followed by thromboembolic difficulties. However, none of these techniques can accurately measure platelet function and identify potential non-PF4 causes for elevated platelet production. We used the technique to analyze platelet aggregates in healthy human blood before and after receiving multiple Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination shots in a time span of almost a year. According to the vaccine-induced platelet activity and potential risk of VITT in healthy patients after the first, second, and third vaccinations, the average concentration of platelet aggregates in healthy patients after the first, second, and third vaccinations is similar to that in COVID-19 patients, and lower than that in COVID-19 patients.

From pandemic Covid-19 to endemic Sars-2 Omicron Disease: is Long Covid still an issue?

With the end of acute symptoms, there is still no one with severe Covid-19 disease in the pre-Omicron period. In this regard, the Omicron variant seems to be a game changer. Long Covid is not a symptom of Sars-2-Omicron Disease, according to so far.

Microsphere as a novel strategy for the long-term use of corticosteroids in asthma patients during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Patients with long-term corticosteroids, such as asthma patients, are aware of the danger of infection caused by long-term corticosteroids use. This new therapy may help to improve the treatment success with less side effects. During the COVID-19 pandemic, additional research is required to prove that Microspheres can be used as a novel drug delivery for asthma patients.

SEX-RELATED DIFFERENCES IN LONG COVID-19 SYNDROME

Background: Sex-differences in Long-Covid 19 syndrome have been documented in the acute phase of COVID-19 disease; females were found to be less likely to get a severe disease than males; however, no research has looked at sex differences in Long-Covid 19 syndrome. Females were significantly more likely to experience sadness, thoracic pain, palpitation, and sleep disruption than males during the acute phase, but not myalgia and cough. Women were statistically more likely to experience persistent conditions such as dyspnoea, exhaustion, chest pain, and palpitations at the multivariate logistic regression study. Conclusion: Females were more symptomatic than males not only in the acute phase but also in the follow-up. Sex was found to be a significant predictor of persistent female symptoms such as dyspnoea, exhaustion, chest pain, and palpitations.
