  • Xu Shuchang: Insufficient protective equipment in hospitals or infection of medical staff

    2020-01-21 06:51Xu Shuchang said that it was not surprising that some medical staff were infected.
    The number of confirmed pneumonia infections in Wuhan with a new coronavirus has soared in the Mainland. Among them, 15 medical staff in Wuhan have confirmed the infection. Professor Xu Shuchang, Chair Professor of Respiratory Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, said that it is not surprising that medical staff are infected because of the narrow space in the hospital, high-risk treatment for medical staff, or insufficient protective equipment to be infected.

    Xu Shuchang took SARS as an example. Among 1755 SARS cases, 386 were medical staff, and 138 medical staff in Wales hospital were infected because they took care of one patient, and MERS Korea ’s Samsung Hospital also had 86. It was not surprising that 14 medical staff were infected while taking care of one patient. "This often happens in infectious diseases."https://hd.stheadline.com/news/realt...84%9F%E6%9F%93

                  • Doctor warns that infectivity is stronger than SARS



                    Pediatric emergency doctor Wu Changteng said on Facebook that the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has definitely entered the human-to-human phase.

At present, the rate of severe illness in patients on the mainland ’s official notification is about 13%, which is lower than the 50% of SARS that year, which may indicate that The new coronavirus will be more infectious than SARS.

                    Doctor Chen Zhijin of Taiwan's Department of Intensive Therapy said that the epidemic was "out of control" and pointed out the number of 198 confirmed diagnoses announced in Wuhan. This number is also only MRC (MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis) Analysis Center).

                    Doctor Cai Xiunan said on Facebook, "Paper can't catch fire, of course, can't contain 'virus'! (Wuhan pneumonia) is coming, and the medical care is waiting. I'm afraid I'll go back to the past when the miso virus is out. "Sad, difficult, difficult, difficult, and difficult," said Zhong Nanshan, a high-level expert team leader of the National Health Commission of the mainland, said in his first visit last night that there were signs that "there must be some people passing on." "

                    Cai Xiunan said: "The masks are ready, and no enemy will come, and I will wait for them; China's Wuhan pneumonia virus has gone abroad, and it has really been out of the province ... It is strange not to spread, it is strange to hide it. Do it yourself Good job! "
