Skënder Brataj provides information on the situation of COVID-19: 60-70 24-hour home visits, almost half of which are sent to hospital. What we know about Omicron

Skënder Brataj provides information on the situation of COVID-19: 60-70

The head of the National Emergency Skënder Brataj gave details about the situation in the country from COVID-19 and the new Omicron variant. He said that the mutation named Omicron is a new strain, a new mutation, but we have no information whether it is in Albania or not. However, according to him, it does not matter because the virus knows no boundaries.

"Mutations are in the nature of viruses, those that show virulence are these 5-6 mutations. It is the doctors who have to provide the information. Testing is the same as for the other variants. It is the same as all other viruses, it remains to be seen whether it is less or more aggressive, whether it bypasses vaccination, whether it is treated with the same therapy? Sequencing can not be done in Albania and samples are sent to Germany. The same thing happened with Delta. He had arrived, samples were sent to Germany and confirmed.For Omicron, it is thought to be the most transmitted by far. Fortunately so far in South Africa there are 1500 hospitalized, but with the Delta variant, despite the fact that the number of those affected by Omicron has increased. So Omicron has lighter shapes than Delta. There is a concern for fast transmission, but also a relief that does not have serious forms ",

He said there is a discrepancy in the number of emergencies. "There is a great deal of indifference on the part of people seeking help and tests. The number of hospitalized people is 25-30 people we take to the hospital and the same number stay at home. "They are the sick who stay in the apartment for a long time and when they reach the aggravation conditions, they go to the emergency room", said Brataj.

As for the number of home visits, he said there are about 70 in 24 hours and almost half are sent to the hospital.

"At the moment there are about 60-70 visits in 24 hours at home. 48-50% are hospitalizations, the rest are treated at home. Insists on the elderly. Young people need help in advance. Problems, follow-up with some specialist doctors and start therapy without analysis. "Without having an imaging, a graph, a scanner, without these there can be no good therapy because COVID-19 does not have a therapy, a protocol of its own", said Brataj.
