    The WHO defines a possible case of COVID-19 as a person experiencing fever MESHD fever HP, cough MESHD cough HP, shortness of breath and neurological signs including anosmia HP, ageusia MESHD or dysgeusia MESHD. However, experiences from hospitals all over the world have shown that presentations vary widely. In our emergency MESHD department in a private hospital in Mexico City, we received two patients with very different symptoms on the same shift. Two previously healthy men in their 40 s presented, one with 3 days of hiccups MESHD and the other with a new onset psychotic event.

    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.

    Background : Today, the world faces a global health challenge caused by COVID-19, but its lethal effect varies from one country to another. Indeed, the COVID-19 does not seem to have the same gravity and lethality wherever transmission TRANS focus and chains exist. With COVID-19 epidemic’s progression, measures to stem its propagation are more and more drastic and numerous. Some were taken in a hurry, others are the result of feedback. Did the multiple measures taken to fight the coronavirus have to be adapted to the local specific conditions of each country?In this work, a review of measures taken to stop this pandemic propagation will be first proposed as well as their impacts analysis. It will also provide an overview of COVID-19 levels of vulnerability depending on the disposals and measures taken to fight this virus which differs from one country to another and sometimes overlap. In a second step, we will relate the disparities’ reasons of the lethality rate which must be interpreted with precaution, based on the 10,000 people scale’s demographic rate considered to be reasonable far from any overbidding or chaotic overestimation.The scenarios studied keep into account a wide range of standards and measures adopted, such as: health system’s condition (medical infrastructure, joblessness allowance, etc.), socio-economic development, epidemics’ propagation mode (confinement, age TRANS, population density, etc.) and in particular reactivity in measures’ taking (borders’ closing, a mask taking and wearing obligation, distancing, etc.). The choice of France as a reference to compare the different cases is not harmless since it allows comparisons with countries of the same rank at the economic, demographic, social and geographic level, and also with other countries presenting different socio-economic and demographic situations. Result: The analysis of the various scenarios implemented to combat the spread of the coronavirus and cautious answers’ research forces us to ask the following questions: did we need to distribute given statistics between deaths MESHD due to coronavirus or death MESHD with coronavirus? Then how can we distinguish between the true death MESHD due to coronavirus and its accidental presence at the death MESHD time? These questions and observations brought out that, the available statistics are relatively incomplete or even inconsistent and don’t allow rational explanation.Conclusion: COVID-19 advent and its globalization recommend courage, clarity and humility. In addition to the uncertainty and ambiguity of incomplete or distorted data, their using modality would be at the origin of bad decisions. The design of efficient pandemic scenarios combined with a logical outcome processing structure establishment can mitigate the risk of incomplete data. Today, epidemiological statistics, moreover, informative and indicative can be at coming up crises’ better treatment origin. The right strategy and the right decision-making can restore the society liveliness in these troubled times. We can say that it is in the announced results there is lacking, creating a psychosis HP through fear and dramatization.
