Psychological status of healthcare workers during the civil war and COVID-19 pandemic: A cross-sectional study

Objective Healthcare workers, particularly those working in departments that provide care for patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), are at a higher risk of this contagious disease than those who work in other departments. The aim of this study was to assess the psychological status of healthcare workers during the COVID-19 outbreak, which has compounded Libya's existing civil war-related problems. Methods A multi-center cross-sectional survey on depressive symptoms, anxiety symptoms, and abuse was conducted. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) was used to measure the prevalence of anxiety and depressive symptoms among healthcare workers. Results The data of 745 eligible healthcare workers from 15 hospitals were analyzed. Depressive and anxiety symptoms were compared to the basic characteristics of the participants to determine the association. A total of 420 (56.3 … arabic 17 English 93

Detection of CTX-M-15 Among Uropathogenic Escherichia coli Isolated from Five Major Hospitals in Tripoli, Libya

Objectives Multidrug resistance (MDR) and emergence of extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs) among uropathogenic Escherichia coli have been reported worldwide, but there was no information on the detection of blaCTX-M-15 in major teaching hospitals in Libya. The aim of the study was to investigate the occurrence of CTX-M-15 β-lactamases producers isolated from five teaching hospitals in Tripoli, Libya. Methods A total of 346 urine samples were collected from hospitalized patients in five teaching hospitals with a diagnosis of urinary tract infection (UTI). Phenotypic confirmation of ESBLs was confirmed by E-test strip; all ESBL-producing E. coli isolates were screened for the blaCTX-M-15 gene. Results The distribution of ESBL-producing E. coli varied among the five hospitals. The highest proportion was identified in Tripoli Medical Centre (67.6%). There were extremely high proportions of isolates resistant to ceftriaxone, cefepime, and ceftazidime (93.0–100.0%) among ESBL producers compared to non-ESBL producers (2.2–4.7%). MDR was detected in 22.2% of isolates. The majority of isolates (85.9%) in which blaCTX-M-15 was identified were ESBL producers. There was a correlation (p < 0.001) between expression of CTX-M-15 and resistance to ceftazidime. Conclusions The isolation of MDR ESBL-producing uropathogens expressing the CTX-M-15 gene will limit the choices clinicians have to treat their patients with UTIs. Continued surveillance and implementation of efficient infection control measures are required. arabic 17 English 94

Libya’da Okula Başlayan Çocuklarda Boğmaca Seroprevalansı, Kesitsel Bir Çalışma

Bulgular: 791 çocuktan (421 erkek, 370 kız, ortalama yaş 6.5) alınan örnekler test edildi. Tüm çocuklar hayatlarının ilk iki yılında 4 doz tam hücreli boğmaca aşısı ile aşılanmıştı. Yakın zamanda gerçekleşen ve gerçekleşmeyen boğmaca enfeksiyonu sıklığı sırasıyla% 4.8 ve% 2.5 idi. Çocukların% 76.1’i tespit edilemeyecek düzeyde IgG’ye sahipti. Sonuç: Çalışma boğmaca enfeksiyonun okula başlayan çocuklar arasında sık olarak geçirildiğini göstermiştir. Bu artış, okula başlama yaşındaki çocukların% 76.1’inde serumda boğmacaya karşı antikor düzeyinin tespit edilemeyecek düzeyde olmasının dolaylı bir sonucu olması ile açıklanmıştır. arabic 26 English 62
