    Dataset from the comment Nania T, Dellafiore F, Caruso R, Barello S. Risk and protective factors for psychological distress among Italian university students during the COVID-19 pandemic: The beneficial role of health engagement. Int J Soc Psychiatry. 2020 Jul 28:20764020945729. doi: 10.1177/0020764020945729. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 32721256. Introduction We read with great interest the study by Torales et al. (2020) and colleagues on the impact of COVID-19 on the global and mental health of citizens across countries. They stated that global health initiatives should be employed to manage psychosocial stressors, particularly those related to the experience of isolation and quarantine among the general population. There have been reports on the psychological impact of the epidemic on citizens, patients, medical workforce, children, and older adults (Barello et al., 2020; Dubey et al., 2020; Garnier-Crussard et al., 2020; Li et al., 2020; Lima et al., 2020). However, few studies on the mental health status of Italian university students facing the epidemic has been conducted to date. At this regard, university students should be considered as a potentially higher risk population for mental health disorders related to the COVID-19 pandemic, as they were asked to deeply reframe their daily habits. The continuous spread of the epidemic, strict isolation measures, being often far from home and lack of interpersonal relationships across Italy, may have hugely affected the mental health of university students. Furthermore, university students, more than others social groups, had to tackle the ‘infodemic’ of misinformation about COVID-19, due to their higher social media exposure (Rovetta & Bhagavathula, 2020). The re-organization of learning activities and of their habits could represent a challenging demand for students, which requires adequate institutional responses to make them able to manage anxiety and stress. Therefore, we believe that a wider understanding of those factors that might contribute in exacerbating anxiety and poor mental health outcomes in university students is warranted to address this issue to provide high-quality, timely crisis-oriented psychological services to this vulnerable population (Tang et al., 2020). Specifically, further studies should encompass positive and negative determinants of students’ Covid-19–related distress.

    As Empresas Familiares são uma forma única e particular de organização profundamente interessante devido ao seu próprio estilo de modelo de negócios, diferenças hierárquicas, valores e princípios. Consequentemente, a sua capacidade de inovar difere de outras formas de organização. Com a chegada da pandemia COVID-19, os modelos de negócios tiveram que atualizar as suas abordagens, inovando e agindo de acordo com os hábitos de consumo e restrições sanitárias. Mundialmente, algumas empresas tiveram que mudar, tendo na sua centralidade abordagens e mentalidades inovadoras, enquanto outras não conseguiram colocar esses mesmos mecanismos em ação. Esta dissertação e pesquisa tem como objetivo primordial analisar a capacidade de inovação das empresas familiares no que diz respeito à interação com o cliente e como a pandemia desequilibra o seu modelo. Além disso, com este estudo, espera-se que alguns resultados possam orientar outras empresas familiares sobre como enfrentar e interagir com algumas barreiras inovadoras e dar-lhes a capacidade de lidar com as mesmas. Family Businesses are a particular and unique form of organization deeply interesting due to their own business model style, hierarchical differences, values and principles. Consequently, their capacity to innovative differ from other types of organization. With the arrival of COVID-19 Pandemic, business models had to adapt their innovative approaches to act accordingly with consumer habits and sanitary restrictions. Worldwide, some businesses had to change, with innovative approaches and mindsets, while other could not bring those same mechanisms to action. This dissertation aims to analyze the capacity of family entities to innovation regarding their customer interaction and how the pandemic imbalance their model. Also, with this study, it is expected that some results might guide other family firms on how to deal and interact with the barriers and to give the capacity to deal with the same barriers.

    A crise pandémica obrigou várias empresas a reinventar os seus modelos de negócio, de forma a responderem eficazmente a esta nova realidade. A presente dissertação é um estudo de caso da Delta Q, que tem como grande objetivo compreender o impacto da pandemia no negócio português da Delta Q e analisar os respetivos ajustamentos estratégicos. A Delta Q, enquanto uma das maiores empresas de cápsulas de café em Portugal, tem vindo ao longo dos últimos anos experienciado grandes mudanças nos hábitos dos consumidores e na concorrência. A pandemia veio acentuar esses desafios tendo originado novas formas de consumir e comprar café sobretudo a partir do online. O COVID-19 provocou elevadas perdas, mas também levou ao crescimento exponencial em algumas áreas de negócio. Assim, grande parte da estratégia desta empresa passou por investimentos nos canais em expansão, de modo a continuar com vantagem competitiva a longo-prazo. O presente estudo de caso, enquanto um instrumento pedagógico, visa aplicar conceitos de gestão e estratégia no modelo de negócio da Delta Q. No final do caso, os alunos serão capazes de compreender os principais fatores que afetaram o negócio, e posteriormente, identificar e aplicar as estratégias mais adequadas tendo em conta conceitos como vantagem competitiva, posicionamento dos concorrentes, capacidades dinâmicas e alinhamento estratégico. COVID-19 crisis forced several companies to rethink their business models, raising important questions about how firms can respond effectively to crises. The present thesis is a case study about Delta Q, exclusively oriented to the Portuguese market, that describes how the global pandemic affected their core business and analyzes the fundamental strategic adjustments implemented. Delta Q, one of the top-sellers of coffee capsules in Portugal, has experienced rapid changes in consumer behavior, demand and competition. The pandemic highly contributed to accelerating those changes and brought new dynamism, especially in the modern channel e-commerce. In order to compensate for big drops in some business areas caused by COVID-19, Delta Q leverages its presence in other segments to sustain a competitive advantage in the long-term. The case study, as a pedagogical instrument, aims to apply strategy and management concepts into the real Delta Q scenario to successfully manage the negative impacts of the pandemic and enhance the firm’s performance. At the end of the case, students will be able to exploit the main crisis drivers that affected Delta Q’s business to subsequently orchestrate the most relevant strategic reactions based on subjects of competitive advantage, competitor’s positioning, dynamic capabilities and strategic alignment.

    Abstract In this work, we formulate and analyze a new mathematical model for COVID-19 epidemic with isolated class in fractional order. This model is described by a system of fractional-order differential equations model and includes five classes, namely, S (susceptible class), E (exposed class), I (infected class), Q (isolated class), and R (recovered class). Dynamics and numerical approximations for the proposed fractional-order model are studied. Firstly, positivity and boundedness of the model are established. Secondly, the basic reproduction number of the model is calculated by using the next generation matrix approach. Then, asymptotic stability of the model is investigated. Lastly, we apply the adaptive predictor–corrector algorithm and fourth-order Runge–Kutta (RK4) method to simulate the proposed model. Consequently, a set of numerical simulations are performed to support the validity of the theoretical results. The numerical simulations indicate that there is a good agreement between theoretical results and numerical ones.

    This record contains raw data related to the article "Evidence of SARS-CoV-2 transcriptional activity in cardiomyocytes of COVID-19 patients without clinical signs of cardiac involvement" Article abstract: We dissected the characteristics of SARS-CoV-2 cardiac tropism in autopsy heart samples of COVID-19 patients, deceased for respiratory failure without cardiac clinical phenotype. By multiple approaches, we detected viral localization into cardiomyocytes, which did not display cell death hallmarks. In addition, we demonstrated active viral transcription in cardiomyocytes by detecting both sense and antisense SARS-CoV-2 spike RNA. These findings suggest the need of a cardiologic surveillance in survived COVID-19 patients.

    Interviews from Manara DF, Villa G, Korelic L, Arrigoni C, Dellafiore F, Milani V, Ghizzardi G, Magon A, Giannetta N, Caruso R. One-week longitudinal daily description of moral distress, coping, and general health in healthcare workers during the first wave of the COVID-19 outbreak in Italy: A quantitative diary study. Acta Biomed. 2021 Oct 5;92(S6):e2021461. doi: 10.23750/abm.v92iS6.12313. PMID: 34739455. Abstract Background and aim of the work .The fluctuation from day to day within a working week of moral distress, coping, and general health of frontline healthcare workers (HCWs) in facing the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic has been poorly studied. This study described the weekly fluctuation from day to day of moral distress, coping, and general health in frontline HCWs who worked during the first epidemic wave (May-June 2020) of the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy. Methods: This study has an intensive longitudinal design, and a convenience sampling procedure was employed to enroll physicians, nurses, allied health professions, and healthcare assistants. Data collection was performed using diary encompassed four sections: a socio-demographic form (required only at the baseline data collection) and three scales to assess moral distress, coping, and general health. Results: Results confirmed poor perceived health and mild moral distress in frontline HCWs, especially in HCWs with offspring, during the initial phases of the COVID-19 pandemic and the stability of their daily perception over a working week regarding moral distress, general health, and avoidant coping strategy, while approach coping strategy reported a slight fluctuation over time. Conclusions: Accordingly, on the one hand, these results confirm that outcomes regarding mental health and moral distress are pretty stable and provide insights, on the other hand, regarding the possible organizational interventions to support approach coping strategy as it seems more susceptible to variation over time.
