Since the beginning of autumn, the course of COVID-19 has noticeably deteriorated in Ukraine. Honored doctor of Ukraine, infectious disease specialist Olga Golubovskaya said this in an interview. According to her, the spectrum of severe patients has changed since September.
"We now have more and more people up to 50-60 years of age are very difficult. And the elderly can easily recover. Not all elderly people must die. The course of the disease has become longer, the temperature period and fever are prolonged. We discharge patients from the hospital as it should be: we withstand everything. terms, we keep them for several days without antipyretics to write them out. They come home - and repeated waves of fever begin at 39. We have to be hospitalized again", - the woman said.
Golubovskaya noted that there are more cases when patients think about suicide due to the effect of the virus on the nervous system.
"This is most likely due to hypoxia. Some medications can also be added. In some people, they even cause something similar to psychoses. Because of this, it is very difficult. Therefore, you have to personalize the treatment and see which treatment is best for whom. Our tactics depend on the nature of the patient, on his temperament", - said the doctor.
