In response to new coronary pneumonia, the Hospital Authority recently announced the opening of 18 "designated clinics" to receive patients with fever and symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections. The Kwai Chung and Yihe Road Mrs. Wu Ruoyu health hospitals were flared by petrol bombs by thugs in the early morning of 8th and 14th of this month. Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident. The author believes that the incident was clearly directed at the clinic and reenacted the previous "Huiming Village" scenario in an attempt to force the government to withdraw the decision. However, if everyone is unwilling to sacrifice, the epidemic prevention and prevention work will simply not continue, and the epidemic will then be real. The outbreak in the community will eventually be counterproductive and self-serving!|
"Designated Clinic" for fever patients
Everyone should take a rational view of the incident. The treatment of "designated clinics" is not necessarily patients with new coronary pneumonia. Generally, influenza patients have the opportunity to develop fever and symptoms of upper respiratory tract infection. In addition, experts have warned earlier that new coronary pneumonia may be mixed with influenza virus. "Infection" will probably bring a new round of impact to the epidemic. And even with the flu, an average of 650,000 people die each year from the world, and its seriousness cannot be ignored. Citizens should seek medical treatment as soon as they have mild symptoms, but at present public hospitals are under tight service, some private clinics are closed due to insufficient protective equipment, and their own medical service supply is already insufficient. There is no reason to oppose the establishment of "designated clinics". Give up the opportunity to get more patients treated.
Helps identify patients hidden in the community
From a macro-level epidemic prevention perspective, the current epidemic situation is mainly transmitted through foreign imports and transmission among family members. There have been no large-scale community outbreaks. Therefore, regional epidemic prevention work is the most important step. The establishment of "designated clinics" can help to find out early. Hidden patients in the community reduce the chance of outbreaks in the community; we need to treat as soon as possible if there is an illness, but everyone understands this, but if there is less clinic, it means that there may be patients who do not get proper treatment, and more If a patient spreads the virus in the community, I believe everyone will understand the cause and effect. Although the epidemic is terrible, don't be affected by fear and blindly obstruct measures to control the epidemic!
