Understanding the presence of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms in quarantined/isolated individuals is essential for decreasing morbidity and mortality caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, there is a paucity of evidence quantifying PTSD status globally during confinement in quarantine/isolation facilities during COVID-19. Therefore, we aimed to assess the PTSD status and factors contributing to PTSD development in quarantined/isolated people during pandemic. Using the Impact of Event Scale-Revised (IES-R) scale, our multicentre, multinational, and cross-sectional online survey assessed the psychological impacts on the quarantine/isolation experience of participants suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19, their PTSD status, and various correlates with developing PTSD.

Nanotechnology combined with biotechnology is one of the most forward-thinking fields in science and technology. Nanotechnology is being advanced through the incorporation of biological materials. The nanoparticles have a diameter ranging from 1nm to 100nm and are made up of different materials. Applications include medicine, food and agriculture, genetic engineering, mechanical engineering, and robotics. This workshop aimed to use recent therapeutics such as nanotechnology.
