Covid-19, Iraq disarmed by the scale of the pandemic

In Iraq, the curfew continues to extend. Relatively spared at the start of the global Covid-19 epidemic, the country is now multiplying records: 2,500 new infections recorded on Thursday June 25, and above all 107 deaths in a single day (or more than 1,500 in total). These two figures worry in a country whose healthcare system, already on its knees, threatens to collapse completely under the pressure of accumulating cases.

Grateful “An unprecedented increase in the number of infections”, the Minister of Health Hassan al-Tamimi announced to see the proof there “That the epidemiological situation is approaching the peak of the pandemic”. When the Prime Minister has just recognized that “The boxes are empty”, he also promised the installation of“Makeshift hospitals” in several Iraqi provinces. Photos of one of them, installed in a huge hall of the Baghdad Fair, circulated: rows of metal beds without respirators or any medical equipment.

The dispute resumes

For Yesar al-Maleki, director of the Iraqi Petroleum Institute, the reasons for “Failure” of Iraq in the fight against Covid-19 are diverse: “A premature victory celebration after a successful curfew in the first weeks; failure to enforce full curfew across the country, particularly during Ramadan and Eid; lack of monitoring of clusters “.

The continued increase in cases has prompted some provinces, such as Basra and Maysan in the south, to reimpose a full curfew. Kurdistan, the first to decide on total containment from mid-March, has also just extended its night curfew for the umpteenth time, much to the dismay of the population.

Despite the calls for caution relayed by the great ayatollah Ali Sistani, social distancing is anything but obvious in a country of 40 million inhabitants ravaged by wars and with failing public services. In several Shiite cities in the south, the popular uprising that began on October 1 resumes these days with even more vigor.

A security situation under stress

Despite protests from Iraqi authorities, Turkey continues to fight in northern Iraq against the rear bases of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), a group it considers to be “Terrorist”. Its air and ground offensive has already caused the deaths of five civilians and several Turkish soldiers or Kurdish fighters. The exact scale of the Turkish operation “Tiger Claws” is not immediately known due to lack of access to the area.

For centuries, nomadic peoples have been eating only meat and dairy products, there are many kebabs in the Caucasus, spicy and fried, and there was almost no cancer before modern chemical substitutes for everything, and now at every step. And the truth is that it’s impossible to blame all sorts of chemical and genetic bullying on food, it will hit billionaires, the poisoners of mankind.

MOSCOW, Jun 28 – RIA News. If you do not abuse kebab and cook it from dietary types of meat, then this dish will not harm the body, nutritionist Marina Makisha told the Zvezda TV channel.

According to her, it is worth restricting to a serving of 200-250 grams and not to eat this product more than once a week.

Yesterday, 16:32

Named products without which you can not lose weight

As the doctor noted, with more frequent use, barbecue can become hazardous to health. She explained that this dish is cooked on an open fire, which causes soot to fall into pieces of meat, which is a carcinogen and can contribute to cancer.

“If the kebab is greasy, then when the fat burns, trans fats form. <…> They have a very bad effect on the liver, and with a large amount it can also provoke the development of cancer, “said Makisha.

According to the nutritionist, avoid crusting on pieces of meat.

“Protein glycation occurs. These compounds accelerate the aging process, they can contribute to the formation of free radicals in the body, and this is a factor in the development of cancer,” she said.

The channel’s interlocutor added that when a large amount of phenolic compounds, which are formed during combustion, is ingested, the risk of cancer is also increased.

nutritionist Inna Kononenko criticized the method of Maxim Fadeev

Nutritionist Inna Kononenko is sure that one hundred kilograms per year is more than necessary. Such weight loss can result in health problems. The specialist told about it on air of the “Fifth channel”.

“Without the supervision of specialists, one cannot lose weight in this way. Because 100 kilograms per year is a lot. About 50-60 kilograms would be more physiological weight loss, ”said Kononenko.

The nutritionist noted that the very thin legs of Maxim Fadeev speak of a loss of muscle mass. According to the doctor, it may be that the fat has not disappeared. Inna Kononenko also warned that stones can form from sudden weight loss in the gallbladder. With such a large weight loss, it is necessary to constantly examine the condition of the internal organs.

The doctor approved one of Fadeev’s methods – a glass of hot water in the morning on an empty stomach. According to Kononenko, this is useful not only for weight loss.

“When we drink water on an empty stomach, it helps us to lose weight and to start the work of our gastrointestinal tract. Bile secretion will increase, which is important for us. The body will get rid of toxins and toxins that we formed during the night, ”the nutritionist told Channel Five.

A few days ago, Maxim Fadeev shocked the public with a photograph with his old shorts: the producer fit in one leg. During the year he lost 100 kilograms. But three years ago, Fadeev weighed almost 200 pounds.

The producer also promised to reveal his method of losing weight. For the time being, he only said that he did not have an operation to reduce the stomach. However, many subscribers did not believe him.

Alexander the Butchers (doctor), cancer, health, discoveries – ria science, society

MOSCOW, Jun 28 – RIA News. The head physician of Moscow Hospital No. 71 and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov told Rossiya on the air how to recognize a mole that could degenerate into melanoma.

According to him, to assess the condition of moles on the body, you can use the system “A, B, C, D, E”.

June 26, 16:31

Dr. Myasnikov called dangerous drugs

The letter A in it is an asymmetry, the doctor explained. A mole can alert you, parts of which will not look alike if you divide it in half.

B – border. It is important to pay attention to the borders of the birthmark. In a healthy mole, they are clear, and in one that can be dangerous, they are blurry, “lead the Vesti’s words.

The letter C in this system means color. According to Myasnikov, a malignant mole is usually unevenly colored.

D is the diameter. The size of a normal mole is within six millimeters.

The chief oncologist of the Ministry of Health explained how to recognize skin cancer in time

E in the system means the evolution of a mole. If it does not grow, its borders and color do not change, then such a formation is usually not dangerous for the body, the doctor added.

Myasnikov said that most often white-skinned, fair-eyed and fair-haired people suffer from melanoma.

“Contact, it must be removed, a biopsy will be done, and you will get rid of it.”

Despite new donor law, it is unlikely that your organs will be reused NOW

The coming into effect of the new donor law next Wednesday means that anyone who does not register after September automatically gives permission for organ donation. Nevertheless, the chance that a donor is actually used for organ or tissue transplantation remains small: 1 in 200. How about that?

The main reason that organ donation is so rare is that an organ donor almost always has to die in hospital intensive care. In addition, the organs must also be suitable for transplantation.

Azam Nurmohamed works at the Amsterdam UMC as an internist-nephrologist, a doctor who specializes in kidney diseases and focuses on kidney transplants.

“Most importantly, organs that are taken out are viable,” he says. “When someone dies, body cells decay. There is no more blood circulation, so that organs are no longer perfused. Especially when the body is at room temperature, decay goes very quickly. After three quarters to an hour, organs are usually no longer usable” .

Delay choice because of coronavirus

  • The new donor law means that every adult, who does not record her or his choice in the donor register, gives automatic permission for organ donation. Because of the corona crisis, the Dutch have had until September to pass on their choice.

Donor almost always dies on ic

In practice, the bottom line is that organ donors almost always die in an intensive care unit and not even in a normal ward of a hospital. Only on the ICU are patients so strictly monitored and continuously monitored that doctors can remove organs in time.

And even then, many deceased IC patients are not suitable for donation. In principle, patients with cancer or an active infection cannot be used, explains Nurmohamed. “You could then transplant malignant cells or the infection, that should never be the intention.”

Age also plays a role. “As you get older, you start to notice flaws. Not only in your muscle strength and condition, but also the organ function can deteriorate. Old organs usually do less well than young organs.”

According to him, an age limit cannot be linked to this, partly because it differs per body. “We rarely use kidneys from deceased donors aged 75 or older,” he says.

Small group of suitable donors remains

What you are left with suitable donors is a “very small group”, mainly IC patients, who often die after a major accident or a heart attack, cerebral haemorrhage or stroke and are dependent on a respirator and medication. This keeps the heart pumping and blood flowing.

Doctors start thinking about organ donation when an IC patient can no longer recover and there is no point in further treatment.

A doctor may then check whether the patient is in the donor register. If this is not the case, she will discuss whether he can take place with the family or organ donation.

Facts and numbers

  • Almost half (49 percent) of all Dutch people over the age of eighteen were registered in the donor register on 2 January.
  • Of these more than 6.9 million people, 55 percent were donors. 34 percent did not consent to donation, and 11 percent left that choice to a surviving relative or designated person.
  • More women (53 percent) than men (43 percent) had registered in the donor register at the beginning of this year. Women also give permission for organ donation more often than men.
  • Almost three-quarters of eighteen and nineteen-year-olds were not yet registered in January.
  • 72 percent of people with a non-western migration background were not in the donor register. More so than for people with a western migration background (64 percent) and with a Dutch background (45 percent).
  • Source: Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), June 2020.

In theory, donor can save eight lives

If there is permission for donation, doctors must determine the death. This is the case if the heart is no longer beating or if the patient is brain dead. Strict rules apply to that decision and there are always several doctors involved.

Once death has been established with certainty, suitable recipients are sought. Donor surgery takes about four to six hours to start. In the meantime, suitable recipients are sought and doctors ensure that the donor’s body remains at the proper temperature for donation.

On average, three organs are used, according to figures from the Dutch Transplantation Foundation (NTS). In principle, a person can save eight lives (heart, liver, pancreas, small intestine, two lungs and two kidneys), but this is rare in practice.

According to Nurmohamed, there is almost always a recipient for a good quality organ. Eurotransplant, a transplant network between eight European countries, including the Netherlands, links donors to recipients.

150 patients on waiting list die each year

Last year, 1,271 Dutch people were on the waiting list for an organ, according to annual figures from the NTS. The vast majority of patients (831) waited for a kidney, followed by a lung (172), liver (135), heart (116) or pancreas (46).

On the other hand, organ donors save 800 patients every year. However, it is not the case that most of the waiting list is then helped. After all, new people are constantly being added to the list. About 150 people die each year while on the waiting list.

This waiting list works differently for every body. For kidneys, for example, it does not work as a queue where someone starts at the back and everyone shifts a spot with each transplant. Kidney patients who have been on dialysis for a long time or who have the best DNA match are more likely to be offered a kidney.

‘New donor law creates awareness’

The new donor law will not increase the group of potential suitable donors. The likelihood that a deceased donor will actually donate organs may change, says Nurmohamed. The most important thing, he says, is that the law will “raise public awareness”.

“Because everyone’s choice will soon be determined, relatives and doctors will be less burdened with the difficult decision whether or not a deceased can donate,” said the kidney specialist.

This waiting list works differently for every body. For kidneys, for example, it does not work as a queue where someone starts at the back and everyone shifts a spot with each transplant. Kidney patients who have been on dialysis for a long time or who have the best DNA match are more likely to be offered a kidney.

‘New donor law creates awareness’

The new donor law will not increase the group of potential suitable donors. The likelihood that a deceased donor will actually donate organs may change, says Nurmohamed. The most important thing, he says, is that the law will “raise public awareness”.

“Because everyone’s choice will soon be determined, relatives and doctors will be less burdened with the difficult decision whether or not a deceased can donate,” said the kidney specialist.
