        There is no efficiency to pneumonia and influenza
        Thu, 20/08/2009 - 08:35

        Health forum criticizes management of the Ministry of Health. Walter Borja in that entity, says that lethality of influenza A is increasing. In cases of pneumonia deaths alarm number.

        Laura Milagros S.

        Since the Ministry of Health reported in a sporadic way the public registration of new cases of influenza, many versions and assumptions have been made in this regard. One is that the work of the Ministry of Health is inefficient to combat the pandemic AH1N1. According to the representative of the National Executive Committee of FOROSALUD Dr. Walter Borja, this demonstrates the increasing lethality of the virus.

        While the rate of new cases has declined, the fatality rate is rising, ie the number of deaths per hundred cases of influenza AH1N1, which was 0.2% before, now this figure rose to 1. 01, showing that the level of severity also increased, the doctor referred Borja.

        Yes there are gaps

        "What is showing now are the structural conditions of our health services. Deficiencies in infrastructure, equipment, availability of drugs, in addition to the lengthy waiting times, user abuse, lack of information to patients attending health centers. The low priority in budget allocation, lack of investment in health is that health is not a political priority for our leaders, "says Walter Borja.

        These shortcomings also affect the progress of other dangerous disease such as pneumonia. Only in so far this year there have been 621 deaths, 320 of them are younger than 5 years.

        Poor defenseless

        The deaths have occurred not only in areas where governs the cold, such as the southern Andean region, has also occurred in regions with tropical climate like Huánuco and Loreto.

        Which shows that to counter this disease is due not only take into account the weather, but also the quality of life. Ie, poverty, malnutrition, disinformation and lack of health facilities in remote areas of our country to influence these people are helpless before the pneumonia. (The Republic print edition)

                WHO warns that the flu can overwhelm hospitals
                The organization advises the Northern Hemisphere of the new wave of infections

                The colder it becomes, the more the H1N1 virus survives. More and more it spreads contagious. The World Health Organization (WHO) yesterday warned the northern hemisphere countries to prepare for the arrival of a second wave of infections by the new flu. A second peak could also have "serious consequences" than those of the first (spring), when it began detecting the first infected. Especially because the large number of affected which can cause the disease could "overwhelm" the health services, they say. Many of those affected will also severe cases. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, WHO European first and then had warned that a third of the population would be affected by H1N1.

                For now, the new flu has claimed 2185 lives, 21 of them in Spain. The latter, a 41 year old female who died in Castilla-La Mancha and have not transcended more data. The H1N1 has affected, as estimated by the WHO, 209,438 people in over 177 countries. The virus remains mild, it has not detected any mutation in it, but its expansion is rapid. And the more infections are more serious cases, experts say. One has only to observe the example of the southern hemisphere, where the virus has gained strength through the winter. There, in some cities 15% of people hospitalized for the disease needed intensive care.

                This example should spread in the northern hemisphere. Where the arrival of the cold will help increase the number of infections. Therefore, countries should be vigilant because the consequences of H1N1 will be felt. Pressure care for severe cases may be such that the treatment and care for other diseases also may suffer serious, as the WHO warns. The large number of people needing intensive care will be the "most urgent" for health services, they say.

                The organization directed by Margaret Chan yesterday released a document which recommends that countries take measures to prepare to deal with this second wave of infections. The expected peak of infection that many experts place the second week of September. Moreover, many of the more severe cases of breathing difficulties and lung infection. They will need to enter, says WHO in intensive care units. In this type of care, its availability and the haste with which they do, says the organization will depend to save lives. So, they say, "should anticipate increased demand" for this type of care.

                WHO forecasts are not isolated. On Monday an official report of the group of scientific advisors to the U.S. government warned that in that country two million people could be hospitalized during the winter by influenza A. Of these, they warned, some 300,000 require intensive care to join.

                Moreover, if even for a vaccine to combat the virus, which is not available until November, only serves prevention. Careful preparations must be especially alert to the WHO, people with risk factors for pregnant women, patients breathing, diabetics, immunosuppressed and obese.

                There is an added risk to the disease. So far, 40% of cases of serious infections in the world occurred in healthy children and adults under 50 years. What makes this bird very different from the seasonal, which mainly affects people above that age.

                But H1N1 is here to stay. So far has managed to displace the seasonal flu virus. "Tests conducted in places with outbreaks show that the H1N1 pandemic virus was quickly established and is now the dominant strain of flu in most of the world," says the WHO. One example will be analyzed only for Spain. Of the 18,398 estimated cases of clinical influenza during the week of 16 to 22 August, 82% were influenza A
