Gridhot.ID – Although often hit by various deadly and contagious diseases such as Covid-19, trust Public Indonesia to vaccine very low.

Even trust to vaccine of Indonesia said to have experienced the largest decline in the world.

Of the 149 countries studied by one researchers from England, Indonesia is in the highest position in terms of decline trust to vaccine.

This research itself is the result of a study trust vaccine global performed researchers English.

According to studies that chart trends trust vaccine in 149 countries between 2015 and 2019, a partial decline trust the public on Indonesia triggered by questioning vaccine measles, mumps, and rubella, as well as the promotion of natural alternatives to vaccine.

Education trust vaccine global point, political polarization and online misinformation threaten vaccination programs worldwide, with trust the public is fickle and varies greatly between countries.

The study found that skepticism about vaccine safety tends to grow alongside political instability and religious extremism.

“It is very important with the threat of new and emerging diseases such as the COVID-19 pandemic, we regularly monitor public attitudes,” said Heidi Larson, professor at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine who led the research.

“Perceptions about vaccines are much more unstable than before,” he said. “Overall, there’s a lot of belief in the world about vaccines. But don’t take it lightly. Confidence goes up and down, it varies a lot.”

Published in the medical journal Lancet, Larson’s findings are based on data from more than 284,000 adults who were asked in 2019 whether they saw a vaccine as important, safe and effective.

Larson said, with drugmakers and researchers around the world racing to develop a vaccine against the Covid-19 pandemic, governments must now be extra vigilant in assessing public confidence in vaccines and responding to concerns quickly.

“There is a lot of anxiety about the speed of developing a vaccine (for Covid-19),” he said.

“But, the public is less interested in speed, they are more interested in accuracy, effectiveness and safety.”

The results of the study show that vaccine confidence in Europe is low compared to other regions in the world, such as Africa.

The proportion of people who strongly agree that vaccines are safe ranges from 19% in Lithuania to 66% in Finland.

Iraq, Liberia and Senegal had the highest proportions of respondents in 2019 who agreed that vaccines are important.

However, public confidence in vaccines has grown in several European countries since 2015, including France, Italy, Ireland and the UK.

The study found six countries where confidence in vaccines had fallen significantly since 2015.

In Indonesia, Pakistan, Serbia, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and Nigeria, the proportion of people who strongly disagree that vaccines are safe has increased significantly.

This, according to Larson, is related to trends in political instability and religious extremism in these countries.

“Among some countries, there is more polarization of sentiment. More people who are extreme, strongly disagree or strongly agree,” he said.

Prince William and Kate Middleton called Prince Harry a puppet Meghan Markle

When at the end of March, Prince Harry heard his father’s alarmed voice in the telephone, he immediately realized that something was wrong.

The 35-year-old Duke of Sussex, who escaped with his wife Meghan Markle from Britain first in To Canadaand then in USAheard the terrible news. Prince Charles, 71, said his coronavirus test was positive.

“Harry at that moment realized that Charles and the Queen would not be around forever. Harry’s biggest fear is not to be in Of England the moment his grandmother Elizabeth II dies. ”

On the last day of June, another book dedicated to the British royal family – War in the Royal Family: the story of the shocking breakup between Harry and Megan with the Windsor House – is being published. This time, her heroes were Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and Prince William and Kate Middleton. Authors Andy Tillett and Dylan Howard are trying to get to the bottom of the truth – which caused the Dukes of Sussex to refuse the rank of members of the British royal family.

Once in the USA and sitting in a luxury mansion in LosAngelesPrince Harry sank into depression. He is trying to find his salvation in yoga classes. But being eight thousand kilometers from the royal family, Harry feels guilty before his family for his flight to the States, especially now, when the threat of the coronavirus epidemic still hangs over the world.

“Megan assures Harry that when everything settles down, he will like their new life in Los Angeles. She plans a joint trip, tells him about the local polo club and how Harry will love surfing, ”the authors write, referring to a source surrounded by the Dukes of Sussex.

The refusal of Harry and Megan from the title of members of the royal family, which became known in January, not only upset Queen Elizabeth II, but also aggravated the already difficult relationship between the families of the two brothers. Prince William and Kate Middleton were indignant at learning about the decision of Harry and Megan, because of this they had doubled the “social burden” – attending official events.

“They consider it unfair that Harry and Megan can enjoy being part of the royal family without any effort,” the book says. – Kate is in a panic, not understanding how she will combine the additional burden with family chores.

At the same time, William and Kate immediately understood who Harry had contacted: 38-year-old Meghan Markle will skillfully manipulate her husband, who is known as far from the smartest man.

“They are sure that Megan treats Harry like a puppet,” says another person close to the royal family. “They accepted that Harry was lost for their family soon.”

Close friends Meghan Markle said that the American actress never planned to stay in Buckingham Palace. At her originally there was a plan – to return to the USA.

“Megan has always dreamed of her own brand – to be recognizable. But I don’t think that she married Harry only because of his surname and image, although this, of course, was a decisive factor, ”say close actresses.

experts explain why obesity “helps” coronavirus

– Has long been known that overweight people have lowered immunity, says head of the Department of endocrinology of the medical faculty Russian national research medical University. N. And. Pirogov Tatiana Demidova. Research and practice show that in these patients increases the risk of atherosclerosis sharply increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes and heart failure. Increased risk of endocrinological, oncological diseases, joint diseases, psychological disorders.

Epidemic COVID has added another item to the list of high threats to people who are overweight. It turned out that when infected with coronavirus patients with obesity more often require hospitalization, fall into the ICU, on the ventilator (artificial lung ventilation). Alas, is growing and the risk of death.

– If the original messages from China on the most severe cases COVID it was mainly about the older people with severe chronic diseases, according to the latest data from Europe and USA the risk group includes people with obesity – says Tatiana Demidova.

FACTS AND FIGURES

In what diseases most often develop complications due to coronavirus

90% of patients admitted with severe COVID-19 US hospitals, were the following comorbidities:

– hypertension — 49.7%,and

– obesity or 48.3%,

– chronic lung disease — 34,6%,

– diabetes type 2 diabetes was 28.3%,

– cardiovascular disease — 27,8%.

Thus, obesity is second among the States in which CouId be severe.

CORONAVIRUS, INFLUENZA, AND HIV, “LIKE” ADIPOSE TISSUE

Visceral adipose tissue, that is, one that is in the abdomen, is, in fact, highly individual body, experts explain. This body affects the immune, endocrine system and metabolism in the body as a whole.

– People who are overweight fat cells are much larger. So, is synthesized in much more of various hormones and inflammatory cells. Among them, including interleukin-6, interleukin-1, tumor necrosis factor, and others, – says Tatiana Demidova. Often in the body, there is a creeping inflammation.

At the same time observed that many viral infections and especially COVID-19 amplify the effects cytokines and lead to the extension of the generalization of inflammation. “It was proved that adipose tissue serves as a reservoir for some viruses, such as influenza, HIV and cytomegalovirus. Also, according to the latest data, it can be activated and coronavirus,” adds Demidov.

INSULATION NEEDS TO BE LONGER?

Studies have shown one more feature of coronavirus. As it turned out, he is able to spread rapidly in adipose tissue surrounding internal organs – lungs, liver, kidneys, heart, etc. because Of this, developing severe damage to these vital organs and people with excess weight, excess amount of adipose tissue increases the risk of death from multiple organ failure.

There is evidence that such patients are also unable to stay longer carriers of the virus, require longer hospital stay and isolation, said Tatyana Demidova.

AFTER INFECTION — DIABETES

There is evidence and that not less than one-third of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 in China, European countries and the United States, the infection resulted in damage of the pancreas. This was confirmed by elevated enzymes amylase and lipase, and glucose levels in the blood plasma.

– This is a very disturbing circumstance. Since we talking about high risk of developing diabetes type 2 diabetes in people with the original obesity after recovery from infection, says Dr. Demidov.

It is not excluded that after the break the pace of the epidemic COVID, we will see a worldwide surge in the incidence of diabetes, experts say.

So now, when the opportunity walks, sports, seasonal ripe fruits and vegetables rich in fiber, doctors suggest the obese individuals to exert their maximum effort for getting rid of really dangerous extra pounds.

Biologist named the reasons for erroneous test results for COVID-19 :: Society :: RBC

Coronavirus infection tests and antibodies can show erroneous results at all stages of the disease. About this “RIA Novosti” said the doctor of biological sciences, professor at the School of Systems Biology GMU (USA) Ancha Baranova.

According to her, at the first stage of the disease, when even if a person has no symptoms, the virus can multiply inside, suppression of infection due to interferons can occur in his body. So, the body’s natural defense can overcome the virus without producing antibodies, so the analysis for antibodies can be negative.

When temperature, coughing and other symptoms appear in the second stage, the body can activate additional protection, and a person can also start taking antiviral drugs. In the worst case, the disease will not end, even if the virus is defeated, and pneumonia will continue to develop due to other factors. At the same time, the test for coronavirus will show a negative result, but then the third, even more severe stage will begin.

Nadezhda Babkina sang Victory Day, despite voice problems after illness

Hope Babkina only recently discharged from the hospital after a serious illness. The 70-year-old singer was hospitalized with severe pneumonia. And although the tests did not show in her coronavirus, friends of the artist are sure that she became a victim of a pandemic. Nadezhda Georgievna spent several days in a coma, on a ventilator, with a pipe in her throat. After such a procedure, the voice is restored far from immediately – it would seem that there is no time for singing. But Babkina did not break the long tradition and on May 9 sang the song “Victory Day” for fans. She shared the video on Instagram.

– Happy Victory Day, friends! – congratulated the artist subscribers.

The singer’s voice after illness has not yet gained full strength, but her colleagues at the Russian Song Theater came to her aid. Together they sang the famous hit in honor of the Great Victory. In the general sonorous chorus, Nadezhda Georgievna’s voice sounding with a slight hoarse sound is easily guessed.

The artist filmed the video in her house near Moscow, where she wakes up after discharge from the hospital.

“About 80% of the lungs were affected … Everything covered with film and dragged on there: it’s such an infection, it manifests itself very quickly and starts to work,” Babkina told of her illness.

Before discharge, computed tomography showed that Nadezhda Georgievna still affected 40% of the lungs. During rehabilitation, doctors prescribed her a special course of treatment (pills and injections) and breathing exercises. Babkin goes to the nearby Lapino hospital for procedures. By the way, another star patient who underwent coronavirus, Stas, was also treated in it. Mikhailov.

According to doctors, it can take a long time to restore the voice after such a disease: after a coronavirus and mechanical ventilation, it may not be able to listen to the patient for a long time, it sounds dull and hoarse.

– This is due to a change in the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract and cough. A prolonged cough has always been considered one of the risk factors for the formation of voice disturbance, ”saidKP»Phonator Ekaterina Osipenko. – How big the risk is depends on the severity of the patient’s condition, his presence on the ventilator. Patients who underwent tracheotomy – an operation to install a tracheotomy tube for long-term mechanical ventilation, also have a risk of voice changes in the future.

Happy Victory Day, friends! @rpfolk # Nadezhdababkina #Russian song #HymnWinning

Doctors compared mortality of COVID and other infections

On the page of the doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov interesting information about the situation with infectious diseases in the world was published on the social network. And in particular that rotavirus infection causes hundreds of thousands of deaths per year in the world. Is the familiar and familiar rotavirus more dangerous than the coronavirus? “KP»Understands together with the immunologist, expert in public health and international health care, candidate of medical sciences Nikolay Kryuchkov.

– Of course, in addition to COVID-19, there are many other dangerous diseases in the world and these are not necessarily infectious diseases. Let me remind you that mortality from cardiovascular diseases is in the first place, also high mortality is associated with oncological diseases, in particular, lung cancer, and, of course, infectious diseases are also often the cause of death. However, the threat of rotavirus infection today is greatly exaggerated, said Nikolai Kryuchkov.

How many people die from rotavirus?

According to pessimistic estimates provided by the World Health Organization, around the world in 2013, 215 thousand children under the age of five died from rotavirus infection. According to other data obtained in international studies, this is 122 thousand deaths in 2013.

– The situation since 2013 in terms of mortality from rotavirus infection has not changed much. I think here we can talk about 200 thousand deaths per year among children under five years of age. Half of the world’s deaths occur in five countries: India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Angola and Congo– emphasizes the immunologist Nikolai Kryuchkov. – In the media you can often find information that up to a third of deaths of children under five are caused by rotavirus. This is not true! The fact is that among all deaths of children under five years of age in the world, mortality from diarrhea accounts for about 8%, but among these 8% of deaths from diarrhea – from 25% to 30% are attributable to rotavirus. That is, it turns out about 200 thousand deaths of children under five years of age per year in the world, while more than 6 million children under five die in the world per year.

Is rotavirus disease relevant for Russia?

If you consider Europeyy region to which Russia, then the figures for mortality from diarrhea are lower than in developing countries. Mortality from diarrhea among children under five in Europe is 4% – 5% of all childhood deaths. About a quarter of them are rotavirus.

In Russia, according to WHO estimates, in 2013, 52 children under the age of five died from rotavirus infection, which is 0.3% of all other deaths of children under five years of age. Rotavirus infection is not the most common cause of death among children, and even more so among adults (the latter rarely die from rotavirus, so all statistics are data on the death of children – approx. Ed.).

– Rotavirus is a problem primarily in poor countries with a warm climate. For Russia, this is also a problem, but to a much lesser extent, ”said Nikolai Kryuchkov, a doctor. – It is important to emphasize that effective and safe rotavirus vaccines exist.

The incidence of rotavirus infection after the introduction of vaccination has decreased many times. In Russia, universal vaccination against rotavirus is not carried out, but, despite this, mortality is low, given that it is clear how to help such patients. The main thing here is replenishment of lost fluid and symptomatic therapy. Given these two factors — the availability of a vaccine and the development of affordable treatment — mortality from rotavirus is very low even among children from zero to five years old, not to mention adults. Among adults, these are isolated cases.

Who is worse: rotavirus or coronavirus?

According to epidemiologists, mortality (taking into account the number of deaths from the number of episodes of the disease) of rotavirus infection in the world is from 0.05% to 0.09%. This is comparable to mortality from seasonal flu. Yes, in the poorest countries it can reach up to 2%. However, in this case, only moderate to severe episodes are taken into account, and not all cases of rotavirus infection.

“With coronavirus infection, according to my most optimistic forecasts, the mortality rate in the world will be 2%,” says Nikolay Kryuchkov. – Let me remind you that now the mortality rate from COVID-19 in Russia is about 4%. AT Germany – 3.5%, and this is one of the best examples in Europe. Of course, a lot depends on how the data are kept and analyzed, but even though there are probably unaccounted cases, the mortality from coronavirus infection is much higher than the mortality from rotavirus. And the epidemic of coronavirus infection is still far from over.

“It is also important to understand that we are having a coronavirus pandemic, and the situation with rotavirus is under control.” The number of deaths from coronavirus is now growing, due to the fact that there is an increase in cases of infection. The daily increase in new cases of coronavirus infection in the world is more than 5%, and in Russia today it is more than 8%. Therefore, it is obvious that the situation with rotavirus is stable, and the coronavirus pandemic for us is not known how it will end. The coronavirus infection pandemic continues to grow, it is important to understand this, ”Nikolay Kryuchkov emphasized in a conversation with“ KP ”. – When we talk about the number of deaths from rotavirus, 200 thousand people a year around the world among children under five years of age are deaths that happened in a year! As we know, the coronavirus epidemic lasts about four months. This is significantly less than a year.

How many deaths from coronavirus infection will be in a year (given that, according to the data of May 3, 243,922 people died in the world – approx. Ed.)? Yes, there are other dangerous infections in the world, but many of them can be protected. This is Hepatitis B, and pneumococcal infection, tetanus, and so on. And Dr. Myasnikov rightly points out the need for widespread vaccination against the most dangerous and common infections. Unfortunately, there are no vaccines from COVID-19 yet, they will be ready by the spring of next year at best.

Also, an important difference between the course of rotavirus infection and coronavirus infection: hospitalization with rotavirus disease in developed countries is very rare. All necessary treatment conditions can be provided at home. With coronavirus, the patient often needs active therapy, which can only be provided in a specialized medical institution.

SPECIFICALLY

Dr. Myasnikov gives such statistics on mortality from infections (in the world for a year)

Measles (there is a vaccine) – 140 thousand deaths per year

Pneumococcus (there is a vaccine) – 2 -2.5 million deaths per year

Hepatitis B (there is a vaccine) – 650 thousand deaths per year

Tetanus (there is a vaccine) – 89 thousand deaths per year

Cervical cancer (there is a vaccine) – 250 thousand deaths per year

Tuberculosis (there is a vaccine) – 1.5 million deaths per year

Influenza (there is a vaccine) – 650 thousand-1 million deaths per year

Coronavirus (no vaccine) – 244 thousand deaths from the beginning of the spread

Doctors called factors for the “dose-effect” of virus infection :: Society :: RBC

Chepurnov said that there are several factors that affect the size of the dose transmitted to humans. This is his immunity, the distance with which the infection occurred, the presence of concomitant diseases. “Biological fine aerosols obey the law of gas distribution, that is, they propagate in the direction of decreasing concentration. And if they are not located in some local area and fill an increasing volume in space, then the infectious dose is reduced, ”Chepurnov said.

Virologists named the category of people with possible immunity to coronavirus

To date, there is no universal formula that could determine the effect of the dose of infection on the incidence of coronavirus, said RBC doctor of medical sciences, professor Nikolai Malyshev. “Nevertheless, it is possible to reduce the dose by observing the regime of self-isolation, social distance and when using protective equipment when visiting pharmacies and other places,” Malyshev said.

In addition to the dose of infection, the situation in which the person becomes infected also affects the degree of infection. “For example, coronavirus is transmitted through the surface, and depending on the time how much this virus is on the surface, the dose is significantly reduced. Or it affects how the infected person communicates with a person – with or without a mask, ”the virologist said.

Scientists examined the cells of people who were not affected by COVID-19, and found that 30% of them had an immune response to coronavirus. At the same time, virologists say that this does not mean that one third of the population has immunity to coronaviruses.

Stress: The secret of cold-blooded people: why ‘losing your nerves’ is not in your vocabulary? | Good Life

A doctor facing an emergency room crowded with patients after hours on call. A policeman before the disturbances caused in a soccer match. A military man protecting a fishing boat in pirate waters. A pilot who must land a plane with a mechanical failure with hundreds of lives in his hands. A firefighter armed with a hose in front of a burning building. They are very different jobs, but they have something in common: situations with high levels of stress before which most of the mortals would succumb. They, however, face them with the cold blood, bravery, and integrity of a superhero. “They could be considered special people,” says the stress psychologist Lourdes Luceno. The equation that turns them into what combines personality, training and genetics.

“This type of persons they have what psychologists call a stress-resistant personality“explains Luceno, who investigates how police professionals and medical personnel react to certain circumstances. It is not that they do not feel or suffer the pressure of what is happening around them. Their bodies also activate the same mechanism that helps them react. before the environment: in stressful situations, they release adrenaline and cortisol, which put the brain in alert mode, increase the heart rate and tighten the muscles, among other responses. But, unlike most people, they do not succumb to negative stress , “What happens when you are overwhelmed by things that you must do and you do not have enough resources to face them”, clarifies the expert psychologist in anxiety and stress at the Human Area Center of Madrid Cristina Wood.

Control, commitment and sense of humor

The personality of cold-blooded people is defined by Three key factors: control, commitment, and challenge. “They think they have control over what happens. They are professionals who are highly committed to their work, who usually choose it by vocation. Finally, when a different situation arises, they do not consider it a problem, but rather a challenge that must be overcome. they sink before the difficulties, but they take them as an apprenticeship “, clarifies Luceno. Although not everything is in character, training is essential. They must train to perfect these characteristics and be able to face certain situations without paralyzing. “With the help of psychologists they learn basic problem solving techniques, proper time management, social skills, to eliminate negative thoughts and rumination [dar vueltas a la misma idea durante mucho tiempo], to know how to organize, lead and support, “says Luceno.

Relaxation is also essential to keep your mind cool and act resilient in extreme situations. How this state is achieved is something that science has done on numerous occasions. Practicing meditation regularly seems to be one of the ways — as determined some studies– but not the only one. Music is another one of them. Listening to it regulates the hormonal response of stress, preventing it from paralyzing us, according to a research from the University of London. And laughter: learning to see different situations with humor helps a lot, according to a work in which the behaviors of firefighters with symptoms of post-traumatic and occupational stress were analyzed. Those capable of having a good laugh while dealing with their problems tended to experience fewer negative effects in stressful situations. And it is that laughter has chemical effects on our body, it releases hormones such as endorphin, serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin, which help us relax and give us a feeling of well-being. Sport also has similar effects on the hormonal response.

Cold blood comes from the factory

It might seem that by training, listening to a lot of music and laughing a lot, we could all be able to get the cold blood of these professionals, but no. A part of its power is written in its DNA. In the same way that it determines the color of our eyes, skin and hair, it also seems to define the way in which we respond to stress. Even though the studies carried out in this regard are only in animals, science suggests that some of our genes They have the job of producing and regulating a molecule called Neuropeptide Y (NPY), which could be a kind of switch to stress resilience. Its operation is not yet fully understood, but it has been observed that when faced with stress, its production shoots up in some of the animals studied, helping them to respond more quickly.

But education also has a huge influence, says Wood: “They tend to have had a childhood without great trauma,” and the reactions of their parents “they learn by observation to make the same responses to situations of uncertainty and stress. Support for them is essential from childhood and when they carry out their work, “essential to face very stressful situations like the current one,” says Luceno, who adds that “they need both their peers and the outsider.”

Baseball player’s first tests are positive for Coronavirus which sent chain effects via MLB – NBC Los Angeles

Maybe it was inevitable.

In the past few days, the world of sports has come to
the scream stops when a handful of players test positive for the COVID-19 virus.
It started with soccer players in Europe and eventually reached the NBA where
three known players have already shown that they are positive for coronavirus. Was
just a matter of time before the virus infiltrated other sports.

On Sunday, he entered the Major League Baseball.

The New York Yankees were the first professional baseball
team to announce that one of their minor league players had tested positive for
COVID-19. The team said the unidentified player was quarantined
Friday after developing a fever.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan was the first to report the news
positive test.

The positive test will certainly have a chain effect in the
MLB world. Probably the whole list of Yankees, both in the major league
and the minor league will need to be tested for the virus.

As of the publication of this story, the team already has
say all of their minor league
players self-quarantine for the next two weeks.

Most likely, the entire spring training facility will
close – if t hasn’t already done so – and a timeline of who entered the unknown
contact with and if he had contact with players from other teams, he will be from
vital.

Last Sunday, MLB sent a reminder to all 30 teams,
encourage all organizations to avoid any activity involving players and
people who gather in significant numbers.

“The risk of contracting a player in a club facility
the virus is real, “read part of the memo.

Initially, after Thursday’s announcement that MLB was
suspend their spring training season and delay the start of the regular
season, the spring training facilities had to remain open to allow players to
continue to train and prepare.

Shortly thereafter, the league announced that the facilities would
would close and the players would have the option of returning home or returning
their home market, or remain in their spring training city (in Arizona or
Florida).

NBC LA spoke to a handful of players on the Los Angeles Dodgers, and many of them were deciding between staying in Arizona or returning to Los Angeles. Many players are renting homes in the Arizona area with rental agreements that expire next week.

Initially, the MLB announced that the regular season would only be delayed “by two weeks”. NBC LA learned that the original interim calendar played a significant role in the players’ decisions on where to stay during the suspension. Many players had the impression that the season could start on April 9th, moving to their home market for the next few weeks the most convenient.

However, following the disease control centers’ announcement on Sunday, all meetings of more than 50 people should be canceled for at least the next eight weeks. The probability of the MLB season starting in April appears to be rather bleak.

In all likelihood, the eight-week barometer is probably longer
accurate, which means that the MLB season could start in late May or early
on June. Many players, including the Dodgers, have to ask themselves, “If
there is no baseball, in which city I would prefer to spend the next two months
in?”

It will be interesting to see if the announcement of the
the first baseball player to be positive has a chain effect on the major league
level and if other positive tests are yet to come.
