Department Head Veli-Jukka Anttila is a specialist in infectious disease research and treatment. He simplifies the picture of coronavirus: over 80% of those affected have mild disease, 15% have infections requiring hospitalization and 5% lead to intensive care.
According to Anttila, the behavior of the coronavirus (sars-cov-2) is very similar in Finland and elsewhere in the world.
The Hus Infection Control Unit ward chief has had a clear idea of the length of treatment for the severely coronary.
"Seriously coronary patients are in the hospital for about a month," Anttila tells IS.
He summarizes the progression of severe disease and hospitalization in six places:
“Peace of mind and stay in the hat”
Veli-Jukka Anttila works with his staff under constant pressure. He wishes the hospital departments the best possible peace of mind.
Anttila understands that the virus is very spreading fear that affects many things. This causes many non-hospital actors to create extra work and waste of time with their demands.
- We must now be able to focus fully on patient care.
- So, stay in the hat, we in the hospital will make sure that the gas cylinders and waste, for example, are properly handled when they leave here.
"The coronavirus is troublesome, but it doesn't infect anyone from the gas bottle after we use it," Anttila assures.
