03:53 PM

Friday 15 May 2020

Books – Ahmed Jumaa:
An official source at the Ministry of Health revealed that about 135,000 PCR analyzes were suspected of being infected with the emerging coronavirus (Covid 19), in addition to following up cases afflicted with isolation and quarantine hospitals until their analyzes turned into negative and complete their recovery until the end of this week.

The source said in statements to Masrawy, on Friday, that the ministry stipulated the necessity of conducting tests and x-rays and analyzing a blood image of cases suspected of being infected with the virus, before conducting a “PCR” analysis.

He said: “In all cases, it is not permissible to deal with the patient orally. Rather, blood tests and blood tests should be performed instead of just talking to him about his exposure to cases or his coming from abroad, because it is possible that the conditions for the definition of the condition represented by contact or return from abroad cannot be applied to him. Or visit a facility where cases have been discovered and is already infected. “

Earlier, the Ministry of Health announced that it had conducted 200,000 Rapit Test tests for suspected cases of coronavirus.

“When the virus ends” .. The government clarifies 7 facts about Corona

10:11 am

Friday 15 May 2020

Books – Muhammad Ghayat:
The Media Center of the Council of Ministers responded to a number of rumors circulating in the past days on social media on the emerging Corona virus.

The center said in a statement today, Friday, that there is no time limit that can be estimated for the end of the epidemic in Egypt or the world, so that the solution remains in conducting tests, isolating and treating the injured, and taking preventive and precautionary measures that reduce the chances of infection and the spread of the virus until a virus treatment and vaccine is found.

He drew attention to preparing for the gradual return of various government services facilities to receive citizens with the firm application of precautionary and preventive measures to ensure the safety and health of both the citizen and the employee.

The center said that the country’s largest focus is currently on the speedy completion of all health and medical care projects, whether new projects or the rehabilitation of existing facilities, stressing that there is no truth to the fullness of health isolation hospitals and their inability to receive Corona virus patients, and hospitals are equipped and equipped to receive cases of infection With the virus and provide it with the necessary medical care.

He pointed out that the state is preparing and developing many chest and fever hospitals within the strategy of preparing those hospitals to be qualified at the highest level to isolate those infected with the Corona virus, as well as implementing a plan to train and raise the efficiency of manpower from medical teams on infection control standards and treatment protocols.

He stressed that there is no truth to the closure of Al-Sadr Hospitals and the fevers whose efficiency is being raised, as development operations are running in parallel with the continued provision of these hospitals for medical services to citizens.

Even German children with severe inflammatory reactions

EThe blessing of this pandemic was that children had previously seemed immune to it. However, worrying reports of children suffering from a new type of inflammatory syndrome that may be associated with a coronavirus infection have been on the rise for several weeks. The young patients often suffer from day-long fever from abdominal pain, diarrhea, skin rashes and swelling of the hands and feet and generally show strong inflammatory reactions. The symptoms are similar to those of the rare Kawasaki syndrome.

Because of the existing differences, doctors now refer to the new syndrome as Pediatric Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome, in short PMIS. At least 50 cases have been reported in Europe and around 100 children are affected in New York. So far, two children and two adolescents have died from the effects of the inflammatory disease. “In Germany, ten children and adolescents are ill, none of the children have died,” says Inge Krägeloh-Mann, President of the German Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine.

It is still unclear whether there is a direct connection with a Sars-CoV-2 infection, but the evidence is increasing. In a study published on Wednesday in the Lancet magazine, Italian doctors compared the number of Kawasaki patients treated before and after the pandemic started in the Bergamo hospital that was at the epicenter of the outbreak. In the five years before the Sars CoV-2 outbreak, 19 children with Kawasaki syndrome were treated there. From mid-February to mid-April 2020 there were ten children. The authors write that this corresponds to a thirty times higher frequency of Kawasaki disease.

At the beginning of May, a British medical team had already reported in the same journal about an “unprecedented cluster” of such cases in South East England. For a period of ten days, eight children were treated with a toxic shock, such as that which can occur in Kawasaki syndrome. Usually one to two children a week would be diagnosed with such symptoms. The virus could only be detected in a part of the children using the PCR test. However, a large number of the children had antibodies against Sars-CoV-2 in the blood. Experts therefore suspect that PMSI can occur after a SARS-CoV-2 infection.

The related Kawasaki syndrome has been known for almost eighty years, the causes of the rare disease are unknown. Infections with cold viruses, which are part of the Corona family, are discussed as possible triggers for the syndrome. “Against this background, it is quite possible that Sars-CoV-2 triggers a Kawasaki-like syndrome,” says Krägeloh-Mann, “the real question is whether the coronavirus causes these complications more often than other pathogens and whether the course is more severe is. ”The number of cases has so far been so small that one has to be patient for a final assessment.

The symptoms of the two related diseases presumably stem from an excessive reaction of the immune system, which primarily affects the blood vessels and organs of the own body. The Kawasaki syndrome mainly affects children under the age of five, while the PMIS, which tends to be more severe, mainly affects children over the age of five.

In Germany, Switzerland and Great Britain, monitoring projects were launched without delay, which record outpatient and inpatient Covid 19 cases and possible complications in children. Health authorities in several countries have or are in the process of providing information and guidelines to make it easier for pediatricians to diagnose, and are asking to report suspected cases. “Because the syndrome is so rare, worldwide collaboration will be required to find the exact cause,” says Christoph Aebi, member of the board of the Swiss Society for Pediatrics.

Experts confirm that most children survive a corona infection without problems and usually show no or only mild symptoms. “We watch the action very carefully. At the moment there is no reason to waive the easing that has been decided, “says Krägeloh-Mann.” Social interactions are extremely important for children and PMIS is a very rare disease that is also treatable. “

Germany can be proud of the containment of the corona epidemic so far, says Jeremy Farrar in an interview. But until all seven billion people are vaccinated, everyone remains vulnerable.

Singapore-born Briton Jeremy Farrar is one of the most influential infection experts and epidemiologists in the world. As a scientist and as a tropical doctor, he has accompanied bird and swine flu and Sars in Asia, he was responsible for the development work for vaccines against dengue and ebola at the World Health Organization and advised the federal government until last year. Farrar is now the director of the British Wellcome Trust, the second largest private funding organization for biomedical research after the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Editor in the feature section, responsible for the “Nature and Science” department.

Mr. Farrar, the initial horror of Sars-CoV-2 seems to have disappeared with many. Is that justified?

An American warning of “darker” winters in modern history

US officials had “rejected” Bright’s shock warnings earlier this year about the severe shortage of essential medical supplies such as masks, test supplies, medicine and a lack of funds, he said.

Bright was removed last month from his post as head of the Bio-Medicine Advanced Research and Development Authority (PARDA), the agency charged with developing a vaccine against the emerging coronavirus, and was moved to a less important position in the National Institutes of Health.

Bright claimed he was removed from his position for opposing the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine anti-malarial drugs to treat Covid-19, a treatment that President Donald Trump has repeatedly promoted despite limited scientific evidence of his efficacy.

Bright will tell the panel that he believes it is “painfully clear” that the United States government was not well prepared.

“We did not notice early warning signs … and we neglected important pages from our guidebook to tackle epidemics,” he added.

“>

Rick Bright is expected to sound the alarm about improper measures taken to combat the spread of the Corona virus emerging in the United States, when he testifies before a committee in Congress, Thursday.

Bright will say during the hearing that “our chances are narrowing,” according to his advance testimony, which was published by Congress.

“If we fail to develop a coordinated, science-based national response, I fear that the epidemic will worsen, prolong its presence and cause unprecedented diseases and deaths.”

“Without clear planning and implementation of the steps that I and other experts have identified, by 2020 there will be the darkest winter in modern history,” according to Bright testimony.

Bright filed a complaint as a reporter for wrongdoing last week after his demotion for allegedly opposing the administration of President Donald Trump’s promotion of scientifically proven treatments to fight Covid-19.

US officials had “rejected” Bright’s shock warnings earlier this year about the severe shortage of essential medical supplies such as masks, test supplies, medicine and a lack of funds, he said.

You may hear about it for the first time … 13 offers a warning about Coron

10:01 PM

Thursday 14 May 2020

Agencies

With the spread of the Corvette Coronary Coronavirus (19) epidemic around the world, doctors are beginning to determine the extent of the harm caused by the coronavirus.

The clinical manifestations of the disease range from common symptoms such as cold and bronchitis to more severe diseases such as pneumonia and severe acute respiratory distress syndrome, and failure of many parts of the body, which may lead to death, according to what was reported in the newspaper, “Al Bayan”

Bloomberg has published a list of most of the symptoms Curna causes, including ones you may not have heard of before:

the blood

Fever and inflammation may disrupt blood vessels, making blood cells more susceptible to lumping, while interfering with the body’s ability to dissolve blood clots. This may cause clotting, which can cause blood vessels in the tissues and organs throughout the body to become blocked.

Life-threatening clots in the lung arteries, known as “pulmonary emboli”, may occur even after the symptoms of the infection have passed. Damaged blood vessels may become prone to bleeding.

In children, inflammation of the veins and arteries caused by excessive stimulation of immunity may cause a disease similar to that of “Kawasaki”, an inflammatory disorder.

the brain

Brain imbalances in the vascular endothelium and associated haemorrhagic and coagulation disorders may cause strokes and bleeding in the brain. Patients may also experience headache, dizziness, confusion, poor awareness, poor movement control, delirium, and hallucinations.

the eyes

Swollen red eyes, sometimes referred to as a “pink eye”, may result from conjunctivitis, which is the tissue that lines the inside of the eyelids and covers the white part of the eye.

Digestive

Digestive cell infections may cause diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. It was found that vascular obstruction caused by abnormal coagulation damages the intestine, requiring emergency surgery.

The hands

Tingling and burning sensation in the hands and extremities may indicate a rare disorder of the nervous system that may be caused by abnormal immune responses to viral infection. Other symptoms of the syndrome include muscle weakness and temporary paralysis.

the heart

Heart injuries that sometimes lead to arrhythmias, heart failure, and cardiac arrest may occur as a result of increased stress, inflammation of the heart muscle and blood clots. In people with cardiovascular blockages, infection, fever, and inflammation may prevent or stop blood flow to organs and tissues.

the parties

Blockages in large blood vessels may cause insufficient flow, or acute ischemia of the blood in the extremities. Severe complications can be fatal.

The liver

Liver dysfunction may occur as a direct result of a viral infection, or most likely due to systemic inflammation caused by the immune system and blood circulation blockage, interrupting blood flow to the organ.

The lungs

The virus targets the epithelial cells that line and protect the respiratory system, as well as the walls of the air sacs through which gas exchange occurs to give oxygen to the blood. Damage to the alveoli can cause pneumonia characterized by chest pain and shortness of breath. In severe cases, hypoxia can lead to acute respiratory distress syndrome.

Kidney

Acute kidney injury may result from strokes and poor blood supply, or as a direct result of the infection.

Nose and tongue

While the virus can cause sneezing and a regular runny nose for a common cold, it can also disrupt the olfactory system, causing sudden or complete loss of sensation.

the skin

Cell-like rashes, small red dots, and purple appearing on the legs and abdomen are all part of a complex category of so-called “viral skin diseases” that may result from the body’s response to the virus.

toes

Purple, rash-like measles or measles rashes may appear on the feet, especially in children and the elderly.
