He presented on the transmitter the results of a study conducted at Clalit Health Fund. “It’s time to stop the discourse that includes phrases like ‘dead with corona.’
He further noted that “the percentage of people who had a short life expectancy when he was ill in Corona is a very low number: less than 12% had a life expectancy shorter than six months when they became infected.” Prof. Blitzer stressed: “It means one simple thing – this disease must not be underestimated. The disease is serious, its consequences are serious, and we need to unite as a public and deal with its consequences.”
Prof. Blitzer reiterated the measures that every citizen can take to curb the spread of the corona plague: “At this time we need to reduce the number of our contacts on a daily basis. And that means constantly wearing masks, certainly in enclosed spaces. The second thing is to keep your distance. “Do not enter enclosed spaces with people who are not members of the household, that is how the disease passes, everything must be done to prevent it.”
In the shadow of the fear of the collapse of the hospitals in the presence of a large number of Corona patients, Prof. Blitzer also wanted to warn against the collapse of the treatment of the health funds and the family doctors. “We do not pay enough attention to community medicine. Most corona treatment does not happen in hospitals, and Clalit alone has 30,000 active patients receiving treatment. Thousands of patients join every day, and the first line of care for them is the community.”
“This array works around the clock and it also erodes, it also reaches a point that has a flow threshold. Family doctors, nurses in the community must not be allowed to reach a situation where they are unable to reach optimal care in the community, because the result is more patients coming to the hospital,” Blitzer added. .
Prof. Blitzer stressed, however, that “there is hope, and the situation will improve.” He noted that “we have seen other countries emerge from similar situations. Once the people come together and face a common challenge, everyone takes personal responsibility, reduces the number of daily contacts, gives up some of the day-to-day activities that are important to his heart and says’ I change my lifestyle for a while “I understand that it is not possible to continue in the same way, so it is possible to get out of this situation.”
