A lawyer got infected with COVID-19 and was treated at home, following the recommendation of the general practician… After a week of treatment, the lawyer ended up in the hospital in serious condition. Another lawyer, affected by COVID-19, was treated at the hospital for a month. The lawyer was discharged with pulmonary fibrosis and will continue the pneumonia treatment at home. A nurse, who saved dozens of lives at a COVID center in Chișinău, was treated for a month at the hospital. After two weeks of quarantine, mandatory after the discharge, the nurse experiences chronic fatigue, difficulty breathing, muscle aches, nonetheless, the nurse is glad that she survived.
Who, when, and under what conditions will take care of their rehabilitation?
Medicine and science know too little about the new coronavirus. Therefore, the long term effects of the coronavirus and the damages caused to several vital organs have yet to be studied.
The healthcare system must intervene urgently. Otherwise, there will be thousands of people unable to work due to the complications suffered as a result of COVID-19, in addition to the hundreds of victims who died.
There is no exact treatment for the virus anywhere in the world. Patients are discharged from hospitals if they are tested negative for coronavirus. This means there is no virus in the body. A public healthcare expert told me that the new coronavirus disappears when it can no longer withstand the excessive intake of antivirals, antibiotics, hormones, antipyretics, and anticoagulants applied to patients in our hospitals. If these doses kill such a powerful virus, what do they do with our vital organs? These so-called cocktails of drugs cause hepatotoxicity, which is not easy to treat.
Following a study conducted on several COVID-19 patients, scientists from the University College London have recently found cases of neurological complications, brain dysfunction, strokes, or encephalitis. Living in a state that does not care about people will impact the lives of people who recover from COVID-19 and were discharged from hospital with drug intoxication, a suffering liver, and pancreas. All their life, they will spend money on drugs for rehabilitation and expensive diets to maintain their health.
Four months ago, Moldova registered the first case of COVID-19 and the first death. Until now, just one private clinic has undertaken to provide, free of charge, rehabilitation procedures to healthcare workers discharged from hospitals with fibrosis, pneumonia, hypertension, and diabetes triggered by stress and the side effects of some drugs. However, this is a singular initiative. Meanwhile, we’re in a hot mess.
For a few days, the number of new cases of coronavirus seemed to decrease, but a surge in COVID-19 cases started again. Furthermore, the number of seriously ill patients remains alarmingly high. Public attention to COVID-19 and related news reduces from day to day, and this makes society even more vulnerable to the new coronavirus.
The first coronavirus wave continues quite aggressively. For four months, our health system failed to comply with protective rules for patients and for employees in the system. It is not clear why patients pay for their own tests and cannot use their insurance policies. It is not clear why patients spend thousands on drugs, but it is even harder to understand what we will do when the second wave hits us…
It will be cold, we will all be poorer and more exhausted than we are now. And in full swing elections, the politicians will continue to neglect us…
