With the closure of Paris for a growing second wave of coronovirus, doctors say they are better equipped to save lives after learning valuable lessons in treating the first wave of the disease earlier this year.
Philip Montravers and 150 doctors and nurses take him to Beachet Hospital, the first facility outside China to record COVID-19-related deaths in February, said they now specialize in treating the virus went.
“In the first wave, people didn’t dare to come to the hospital,” he said “They were scared, afraid of being infected, when they arrived, they were on their last legs, exhausted, unable to move.” , And so – hop! – we informed them and ventilated. “
Now the hospital relies less on aggressive treatment and uses steroids to treat patients – a therapy that was not available to them during the first wave. If patients need oxygen, hospital doctors remove it through a face mask instead of a tube. Montravers said that sick people are also better informed and seek medical treatment as soon as the onset of coronovirus symptoms is felt. As a result, patients are spending less time in the hospital, he said.
According to Johns Hopkins University, there are 1,915,677 coronovirus cases in France, which is monitoring COVID-19 worldwide. The country recorded 42,600 deaths.
