COVID-19 pandemic and care of chronic kidney diseases patients in India
Manas Ranjan Behera
April-June 2020, 6(2):27-29
In view of the coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) pandemic, most health-care resources focused on testing capability and increasing hospital beds and ventilators. Lockdown and reallocation of resources are two major interventions done by the government to tackle with the COVID outbreak. However, this is at the cost of patients living with noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, hypertension, cancer, cardiovascular emergencies, and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Nevertheless, all health-care services related to NCD are impacted, but patients with CKD, especially those on dialysis, are affected mostly. People living with NCDs especially with CKD are at higher risk of severe COVID-19-related illness and death. It is vital that countries find innovative ways to ensure that essential services for CKD continue, even as they fight COVID-19.

Nephrology teaching during the Coronavirus Disease 2019 pandemic
S Arunkumar, Dipankar Bhowmik
April-June 2020, 6(2):38-41
The rapid spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) to pandemic proportions since March 2020 has placed enormous pressure on health-care workers worldwide. India was placed on a nationwide lockdown from March to May 2020 and is gradually opening up with regard to travel and businesses. India is the third worst-hit country in the world after the United States and Brazil with 2.1 million documented cases. Coronavirus 2 infection is commonly associated with acute kidney injury in severe cases. The rapid spread of coronavirus has strained and stretched our health-care system, in particular, nephrology service to previously unknown dimensions. This has affected the normal routine of clinical training and necessitated a change in the approach to medical education. Apart from the training perspective, the stress on account of changes in clinical rotation, fear of contracting COVID-19, and uncertainty about the future course of disease and job prospects affects mental health of residents. This brief review explores the impact of such curtailed clinical activities and teaching and the possible approaches to nephrology teaching during the pandemic.
