Protect those at high risk of severe illness
Wang Guiqiang, director of the Department of Infectious Diseases, Peking University First Hospital, said that as the pathogenicity of the Omicron virus weakens and its transmissibility increases, the current focus of epidemic prevention and control is to protect the elderly and those with serious and high-risk groups such as underlying diseases. People should be vaccinated as soon as possible.
Wang Guiqiang, Director of the Department of Infectious Diseases, Peking University First Hospital:The current infection site of the Omicron strain is mainly the upper respiratory tract, which leads to a very low proportion of lower respiratory tract pneumonia. Because of this, its pathogenicity and the proportion of severe cases have been significantly reduced. Of course, it is very contagious. We Need to pay attention to the status of the Omicron strain:
1. Effectively control large-scale infections;
2. Protect high-risk, high-risk groups with severe illnesses. One is the elderly, especially those over 80 years old. Those with various serious underlying diseases are vulnerable groups;
3. Those who have not been vaccinated. Objectively speaking, vaccination can reduce the risk of severe illness and death after infection with the new coronavirus. Therefore, we still urge everyone to get vaccinated, especially the elderly.
Stratified treatment of general patients can observe treatment at home
Wang Guiqiang suggested that stratified treatment be implemented for patients with new crowns, and ordinary patients can observe and treat at home, leaving limited medical resources for high-risk groups with severe illness.
Wang Guiqiang, Director of the Department of Infectious Diseases, Peking University First Hospital:At home, if symptoms such as fever and cough occur, take some antipyretic and analgesic drugs, physically cool down, or take some traditional Chinese medicine and some antiviral drugs under the guidance of a doctor. But we also emphasize not to mix multiple medicines together, because various medicines also have the risk of side effects, and interactions may also increase some adverse drug reactions.
Experts suggest that if you have symptoms such as fever, headache, sore throat, and dry cough, and suspect a new coronavirus infection, you can do an antigen test at home.
