    Study objectives: To evaluate the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on sleep, anxiety HP anxiety MESHD, and Burnout in healthcare professionals. Methods: A survey was distributed using social media and organizational emails to Brazilian active healthcare professionals during the COVID-19 outbreak. We explored potential associated factors including age TRANS, gender TRANS, occupation, workplace, work hours, income, previous infection MESHD with COVID-19, recent/current contact with COVID-19 patients, regional number of incident deaths due to COVID-19, anxiety HP anxiety MESHD, and burnout. We evaluated new-onset or previous insomnia HP insomnia MESHD worsening (primary outcome), sleep quality, and duration (secondary outcomes). Results: A total of 4,384 health professionals from all regions of the country were included in the analysis (mean age TRANS: 44{+/-}12 years, 76% females TRANS, 53.8% physicians). Overall, 55.7% were assisting patients with COVID-19, and 9.2% had a previous COVID-19 infection MESHD. New-onset insomnia HP insomnia MESHD symptoms or previous insomnia HP insomnia MESHD worsening occurred in 41.4% of respondents in parallel to 13% (n=572) new pharmacological treatments for insomnia HP insomnia MESHD. Prevalent anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and burnout during the pandemic were observed in 44.2% and 21% of participants, respectively. Multivariate analyses showed that females TRANS (OR:1.756; 95% CI 1.487-2.075), weight change (decrease: OR:1.852; 95% CI 1.531-2.240; increase: OR:1.542; 95% CI 1.323-1.799), prevalent anxiety HP anxiety MESHD (OR:3.209; 95% CI 2.796-3.684), new-onset burnout (OR:1.986; 95% CI 1.677-2.352), family income reduction >30% (OR:1.366; 95% CI 1.140-1.636) and assisting patients with COVID-19 (OR:1.293; 95% CI 1.104-1.514) were independently associated with new-onset or worsening of previous insomnia HP insomnia MESHD. Conclusions: We observed a huge burden of insomnia HP insomnia MESHD in healthcare professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this scenario, dedicated approaches for sleep health are highly desirable.

    Background: Since December 2019, an epidemic caused by novel coronavirus(2019-nCoV) infection MESHD has occurred unexpectedly in China. Because of the sudden nature of the outbreak and the infectious power of the virus, it will inevitably cause people anxiety MESHD anxiety HP and other stress reactions. Previous studies showed that Baduanjin exercise was effective for people in anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and insomnia HP. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential benefits of Baduanjin exercise on the anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and insomnia HP insomnia MESHD in COVID-2019 patients.Methods: This is a Case-Control Study. The COVID-2019 patients including 39 Baduanjin exercises or willing to do Baduanjin exercises and 39 age TRANS-and gender TRANS-matched nonexercising controls. The anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and insomnia HP insomnia MESHD in COVID-2019 patients were measured by using the GAD-7 and SMH Sleep Questionnaire at baseline and discharge.Results: In the study, the Paired T-test showed that two groups had improved the GAD-7 scores and SMH Sleep Questionnaire compared with baseline at discharge. Baseline results showed there were no significant differences in the GAD-7 scores and SMH Sleep Questionnaire between the two groups. However, the significant differences found in the Baduanjin group included a 43.9% lower (p<0.001) in the GAD-7 score and an approximately 75.9% higher (p=0.003) in SMH Sleep Questionnaire score compare with the control group at discharge.Conclusion: The Baduanjin exercise may improve the anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and insomnia HP insomnia MESHD in COVID-2019 patients. It can also be used as a form of rehabilitation exercise for discharged patients or patients isolated at home.Trial Registration: ChiCTR2000030528.

    Introduction: Social distancing and quarantine measures applied during the COVID-19 pandemic might result in mental health problems. In this cross-sectional study we examined if perceived social support, exercise in minutes per week and change in exercise are protective factors regarding symptoms of depression MESHD, anxiety HP anxiety MESHD, and sleeping disorders MESHD. Method: In April 2020, n = 4271 German adults TRANS completed an online survey including mental health questionnaires regarding depression MESHD (PHQ-D), anxiety HP anxiety MESHD (PHQ-D) and sleep (PSQI), as well as questionnaires related to protective factors such as exercise (BSA-F), physical activity-related health competence (PAHCO) and social support (F-SozU). Results: Complete case analysis (n = 3700; mean age TRANS 33.13 {+/-} 11.73 years, 78.6 % females TRANS) resulted in elevated prevalence SERO of depressive disorder MESHD (31.4%), panic disorder MESHD (5.7%) and other anxiety HP anxiety MESHD disorders (7.4%). 58.3% reported symptoms of insomnia HP insomnia MESHD. Three separate models of multiple regression were conducted. Perceived social support was associated with lower values of anxiety HP anxiety MESHD (beta = -0.10; t(19) = -6.46; p >0.001), lower values of depressive symptoms MESHD (beta = -0.22; t(19) = -15.71; p < .001) and lower values of sleeping disorder MESHD symptoms (beta = -0.15; t(19) = -9.55; p < .001). Change towards less exercise compared to the time before Covid-19 was associated with and higher values of anxiety HP anxiety MESHD (beta = -0.05; t(19) = -2.85; p= .004), higher values of depressive symptoms MESHD (beta = -0.08; t(19) = -5.69; p < .001), and higher values of sleeping disorder MESHD symptoms (beta = -0.07; t(19) = -4.54; p < .000). Post-hoc analysis (ANOVAs) revealed that a change towards less exercise was significantly associated with more depressive MESHD, anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and sleeping disorder symptoms whereas a positive change was not. No significant association was found for exercise in minutes per week for all outcomes. Conclusion: The COVID-19 pandemic seems to have a negative impact on mental health in the German population. Social Support and a stable amount of exercise might attenuate these negative mental health consequences. Ongoing monitoring of the impact of the pandemic on mental health and possible protective factors is needed in order to create a basis for the development of appropriate prevention and intervention measures.

    Background The objective of this study is to understand the psychological health status and analyze the related factors of healthcare workers for aid in Hubei during the epidemic. 220 subjects were investigated by Self-Rating Scale of Sleep(SRSS), Generalized Anxiety HP Scale (GAD-7), and 9-item patient health questionnaire (PHQ-9).Results The average SRSS score of all subjects was significantly higher than the national norm (p < 0.001)and the influencing factors were gender TRANS, whether the patients died under the charge of nursing/treatment, the history of psychosis HP and whether their family members TRANS were infected with the COVID-19. The average GAD-7 score of all subjects was in a moderate anxiety HP level, and the main influencing factors were gender TRANS, years of work, history of psychosis HP, self-perceived health statues and whether their family members TRANS were infected with the COVID-19. The average PHQ-9 score of all subjects was in mild depression level. The primary influencing factors were whether they nursed/treated severely ill patients during aid in Hubei and whether they had a history of psychosis HP.Conclusions During the outbreak of COVID-19, the symptoms of insomnia HP and anxiety HP of the healthcare workers for aid in Hubei were prominent. Moreover, male TRANS workers, those whose patients have died during their treatment, with previous anxiety HP disorders and whose family members TRANS infected with COVID-19 were facing more serious problems. Therefore, this special group needs to be strengthened follow-up psychological support individually.

    In this study, we report on mental health outcomes among health workers (HWs) involved with the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy. Data on mental health on 1379 HWs were collected between March 27th and March 31th 2020 using an on-line questionnaire spread throughout social networks, using a snowball technique along with sponsored social network advertisement. Key mental health outcomes were Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder MESHD symptoms ( PTSD MESHD), severe depression MESHD, anxiety HP anxiety MESHD, insomnia HP insomnia MESHD and perceived stress. PTSD MESHD symptoms, severe depression MESHD, anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and insomnia HP insomnia MESHD, and high perceived stress were endorsed respectively by 681 (49.38%), 341 (24.73%), 273 (19.80%), 114 (8.27%) and 302 (21.90%) respondents. Regression analysis show that younger age TRANS, female TRANS gender TRANS, being a front-line HWs, having a colleague deceased, hospitalised or in quarantine were associated with poor mental health outcomes. This is the first report on mental health outcomes and associated risk factors among HWs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy, confirming a substantial proportion of health workers involved with the COVID-19 pandemic having mental health issues, in particular young women, first-line HWs.

    Background: To review the clinical characteristics of patients with mild cases of novel coronavirus disease MESHD (COVID-19) pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD admitted to shelter hospitals and to investigate the management patterns of shelter hospitals. Methods: We collected and analyzed the case data of 931 patients of their general conditions, main clinical presentations, outcomes, laboratory results, imaging. Results: The average age TRANS of patients with mild cases of COVID-19 was (46.68 ± 12.13) years. There was no significant difference in incidence between males TRANS and females TRANS. The most common clinical presentations were fever HP fever MESHD (60.79%), cough HP (47.37%), myalgia HP myalgia MESHD and fatigue HP fatigue MESHD (17.40%), sore throat (13.86%), sputum (13.86%), diarrhea HP diarrhea MESHD (9.98%), chest distress and dyspnea MESHD dyspnea HP (8.38%), nasal congestion (6.02%), and runny nose (5.69%), while 10.10% were asymptomatic TRANS. In addition, anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and insomnia HP insomnia MESHD were present in 12.13% of cases. COVID-19 clinical type: mild, 248 cases (26.64%); moderate, 683 cases (73.36%). Blood SERO biochemical examination showed that some patients exhibited WBC count (26.32%) lower to normal. Most patients tested positive for novel coronavirus nucleic acid (55.45%), while 44.55% tested negative. The rate of positive chest computed tomography (CT )examination findings was 94.36%. The most common change were ground-glass opacities (48.70%) and multiple patchy opacities (44.58%). Moreover, 65 patients (6.98%) were transferred to designated hospital, primarily due to exacerbation of novel coronavirus pneumonia MESHD pneumonia HP (32 cases, 49.2%). Conclusions: COVID-19 patients in shelter hospitals were in a relatively mild overall condition and were predominantly of the moderate clinical type. Attention should be paid to asymptomatic TRANS positive patients and patients without respiratory symptoms. CT is still the main patient screening method. Shelter hospitals can carry the burden of epidemic prevention and treatment of patients with mild cases of COVID-19.

    Background The outbreak of coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 in China remains to be a serious challenge for frontline medical workers (fMW). They are under high risk of being infected and high mental stress, which may lead to sleep disturbances HP sleep disturbances MESHD, anxiety HP anxiety MESHD, and depression MESHD. Methods We conducted a cross-sectional study to evaluate sleep disturbances HP of fMW and made a comparison with non-fMW. The medical workers from multiple hospitals in Hubei Province, China, were volunteered to participate. An online questionnaire, including Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), Athens Insomnia MESHD Insomnia HP Scale (AIS), and Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), was used to evaluate sleep disturbances HP sleep disturbances MESHD and mental status of fMW. Sleep disturbances HP were defined as PSQI>7 points or/and AIS>6 points. We compared the scores of PSQI, AIS, anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and depression VAS, and prevalence SERO of sleep disturbances HP between fMW and non-fMW. Subgroup analysis for different gender TRANS in fMW was conducted. Findings A total of 1306 subjects (including 801 fMW and 505 non-fMW) were enrolled. Compared to non-fMW, fMW had significantly higher scores of PSQI (p<0.0001), AIS (p<0.0001), anxiety HP anxiety MESHD (p<0.0001) and depression MESHD (p=0.0010), and higher prevalence SERO of sleep disturbances HP sleep disturbances MESHD with PSQI > 7 points (p<0.0001) and AIS > 6 points (p<0.0001). In subgroup analysis, compared to male TRANS fMW, female TRANS fMW had significantly higher scores of PSQI (p=0.022) and higher prevalence SERO of sleep disturbances HP sleep disturbances MESHD with PSQI > 7 points (p<0.0001). Interpretation fMW had higher prevalence SERO of sleep disturbances HP sleep disturbances MESHD and worse sleep quality than non-fMW. Female TRANS fMW were more vulnerable to having sleep disturbances HP sleep disturbances MESHD than male TRANS fMW. Funding None.
