With minimal losses, the Russian economy will overcome the crisis that has arisen due to the coronavirus pandemic, and inflation will reach about 4% in the near future. This was stated by President Vladimir Putin in an interview with the program “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin “on the channel” Russia 1 “.

“Now the year was 3%. Even in today’s conditions, we set ourselves a benchmark of 4%, ”the head of state said, noting that in 1997 inflation was at 11%.

Putin also added that economic reserves have grown 50 times since the 1990s, when Russia was the world’s poorest country.

In May, Rosstat announced the acceleration of annual inflation in April to 3.1% in annual terms (2.5% in March).

Putin said that inflation in Russia does not exceed the previously set framework, and the macroeconomy was managed to be kept in a “working condition”.

very cheap and long-known drugs help save the lungs with coronavirus

Cloving hospital on the basis of the Medical Scientific and Educational Center (ISSC) Moscow State University named after M.V.Lomonosov took the first patients on April 21 and completed his work on June 13. It turned out that it was possible to achieve the best treatment results for COVID-19 in Moscow. Over the entire period, 4 patients died, and among severe patients who got mechanical ventilation, the mortality rate was less than 14% (for comparison, the average for the city and the world was up to 70 – 80%). Eighteen doctors out of 220 employees of the hospital were infected with coronavirus, there were no deaths among the medical staff.

What approaches were used at the University Hospital of Moscow State University to achieve such results? We continue the conversation with the head. Department of Therapy, Faculty of Fundamental Medicine, Moscow State University, Head of the Department of Age-Associated Diseases, Medical Scientific and Educational Center, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Cardiologist Yana Orlova.

MEDICINE FOR COUGH FOR 80 RUBLES

– Most of those who are ill or are afraid to get sick are worried about fibrotic changes in their lungs. They say that you have developed special therapy that can reduce the risk of developing fibrosis. Is it possible?!

– Yes, we launched an appropriate clinical study. There are no final results yet, but we have developed clinical practice.

“What did you do to save the lungs?”

– We used a combination of bromhexine and spironolactone (both are long-known very cheap drugs. – Ed.). Bromhexine is an expectorant that has been prescribed to patients with pneumonia and cough for many years. At the same time, experimental data showed that this drug can block a specific enzyme and impede the penetration of coronavirus into cells. True, it was on this effect that we counted to a lesser extent in inpatients, since such an effect is important mainly in the early stages of the disease. But the expectorant effect of bromhexine really helps patients with COVID. I heard that our colleagues in Peter launched a study of bromhexine for prophylactic purposes. We will wait for the results.

FIBROSIS OBSTACLE

– The second drug – spironolactone – is traditionally widely used in cardiology for the treatment of heart failure, severe hypertension. It has a small diuretic, magnesium and potassium-preserving effect, continues Yana. Orlova. – It has several mechanisms through which it can be useful in coronavirus infection.

Firstly, a mechanism that prevents the development of fibrosis in general in the body. There are works that, in particular, show that spironolactone reduces fibrosis in the heart. At the same time, it is known that the tendency to fibrosis is not local, but systemic – where there is more inflammation, there will certainly be fibrosis. And we see, of course, fibrotic changes in the “covide” in our patients. Therefore, we prescribed spironolactone as a drug for the prevention of this process.

Secondly, this drug blocks sex hormone receptors, in particular testosterone. Some published studies suggest that “high-testosterone” men suffer from “covid” more often and develop more severe fibrotic changes. Therefore, blocking these receptors for several weeks during COVID treatment may be useful in reducing the severity of complications. We are not talking about a longer intake, since male patients are unlikely to agree with a decrease in testosterone levels in the long term.

And perhaps the most important point. In almost all of our patients, we observed hypokalemia (a decrease in potassium levels. – Ed.). With coronavirus infection, potassium is intensely excreted from the body, and scientific articles even suggest that hypokalemia serves as the trigger for a cytokine storm. So spironolactone has a real chance to reduce the risk of this dangerous complication. But the main thing, in my opinion, is that lowering the level of potassium in the body is extremely harmful to the heart and triggers life-threatening rhythm disturbances, increasing the risk of sudden death. We, like all others, replenished potassium with droppers, but it was more effective to retain it in the body with the help of spironolactone.

WHEN PRESCRIBED PATIENTS

– Yana Arturovna, how many patients did you have on average?

– About 10 – 14 days. But someone and 50 days.

– Have you noticed signs by which it can be assumed that the disease in the person brought is likely to go the hard way?

– Such studies were carried out in the world, our clinical practice confirmed them. Men certainly get worse than women; the elderly are heavier than the young; overweight people are heavier than overweight patients. Men with a classic male type of baldness, a lot of facial hair, we can say brutal men get sick harder.

– Under what conditions did you discharge patients?

– We acted as close as possible to the recommendations Ministry of Health: so that the temperature for three days was not higher than 37.5 degrees; so that C-reactive protein (an indicator of inflammation) is lower than 10 mg / l, and saturation, that is, the level of oxygen in the blood, is higher than 96%.

“HEAD OF EPIDEMIOLOGY DEPARTMENT OF ITSELF WORKED AT SANPROPUSNIK”

– How often do you get sick doctors and nurses?

– In the first month no one got sick at all. We have a very powerful epidemiological service. The head of the sanitary-epidemiological department, a senior researcher, correctly organized the whole process, and for the first two weeks she personally worked in the sanitary inspection room at the exit from the “red zone” and helped doctors and nurses who were exhausted after the shift safely remove protective clothing.

Then both people’s fatigue and viral load accumulated. By the middle of the second month, sick people began to appear. There were no seriously ill patients. We treated part of the staff in our observation, part of it was treated at home. In total, 18 people were infected from the medical staff (less than 10%).

– Doctors take something for prevention? Vitamins C, D, Zinc?

– I saw the recommendations of American nutritionists, they speak out positively about taking zinc, melatonin and vitamin C. There were somewhat conflicting data on vitamin D. But we did not give any such recommendations to our employees. We have all the prevention was associated with minimizing contacts and other measures of epidemiological safety.

Physicians are the heroes of our time.“If you think that you are special and that a pandemic will not affect you, you are deeply mistaken,” listen to what the doctors who are fighting with coronavirus say

World Data i

According to the latest relevant information from Johns Hopkins University, over 2.54 million infections have been detected in the United States. 125.8 thousand people died. The country accounts for about a quarter of all cases of infection and deaths detected in the world. Over 30 thousand people died in New York.

Hazard noted that in some states, primarily in the southern, the spread of the virus continues to increase. According to him, there quarantine measures were too early there contrary to the rules established at the federal level. The latter provide for the possibility of moving to the second phase of lifting restrictions only after the number of detected cases has been reduced in the state for two weeks.

The Florida Department of Health reported June 8,530 new cases per day. And an infectious disease doctor at a Tampa Florida hospital, Kami Kim told FT that the number of such patients doubled in a couple of weeks. The number of new cases is growing rapidly in Arizona, Texas, Florida and South Carolina.

According to CNN on June 28, only two out of 50 states reported a decrease in the growth of new cases of coronavirus, these are Connecticut and Rhode Island. In 36 states, the number of patients is only increasing. CNN, like FT, points out that a particularly difficult situation has developed in Florida, which could become a new epicenter of the spread of infection.

Azar said that the reason for this may be too hasty lifting of restrictions, confirmed the former head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Tom Frieden. According to him, mortality has not yet reached a peak and at least 15 thousand people may become victims of infection in the country next month.

Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo said that the ongoing increase in the number of cases of coronavirus in the US is not the second wave of the epidemic, but the failure of attempts to contain the first wave. According to the FT, he uses such statements to criticize the Donald Trump administration. The actions of the White House are actively criticized by the Democrats. So, the team of Joe Biden, the rival of Trump in the upcoming presidential election, called the trip of Vice President Michael Pence to Texas, where the unfavorable situation continues, a demonstration of the “dismissive attitude that the administration showed towards solving this crisis from the very beginning.”
