New strains of coronavirus
Experts believe that the SARS-CoV2 virus that caused the pandemic is still present in most countries, even as the incidence is declining.
As the chief physician of the Leader-Medicine medical center Yevgeny Timakov noted, autumn may be the time for the appearance of the next mutation of the coronavirus.
“The main mutations of the coronavirus occur in the fall.
After the appearance of a new mutation, it will take time for it to “raise its head” and cause a surge in the incidence of disease.
After the mutation, it takes about 4-5 months, ”Sputnik radio quotes Timakov.
The doctor believes that a new rise in the incidence may begin in Russia in the fall, and by December the situation will stabilize.
“That is, the incidence will remain, but at a level that will not be critical for health care.
Further, in the spring, the situation will depend on the new strain of coronavirus, ”the expert believes.
He also stressed that Russians should get vaccinated now to avoid infection in the fall.
Individual treatment plan
The Belgorod State National Research University (NRU "BelSU") has created and registered a free program for doctors that helps to draw up an individual treatment plan for patients with coronavirus, taking into account the recommendations of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.
Also on russian.rt.com A terminal for non-contact diagnostics of respiratory diseases has been developed in Russia
The program developed at BelSU will allow doctors to draw up an individual treatment plan for patients.
It is available under an open license to employees of medical institutions.
The authors of the project emphasized that the program is intended for medical use only.
“After the launch of the COVID-19 Outpatient Care program, the physician is asked to choose from the parameters related to the patient's condition.
Then the program analyzes the data and, in accordance with the recommendations, proposes to consider certain tactics of patient management, ”TASS quotes the author of the project, associate professor of the Department of Pharmacology and Clinical Pharmacology of the University, Roman Bontsevich.
In the process of planning treatment, the program takes into account objective and laboratory parameters, in particular, temperature, pressure, oxygen saturation, probable or definite lung damage, as well as additional risk factors - the patient's age, the presence of obesity, chronic diseases of the bronchopulmonary, cardiovascular, endocrine systems , oncological diseases.Keywords:
