In winter, a triple infection awaits us


Dr. Ion Alexie, an infectionist at a hospital in Las Vegas, says that in winter we risk a triple infection: “We can get the flu at the same time, Covid 19, and then have bacterial pneumonia.”

Dr. Ion Alexie, an infectious disease doctor who works at a hospital in Las Vegas, spoke on the “Marius Tucă Show” about the triple danger we can be exposed to this winter.

“In the winter we will have what I call , (triple danger – n.red.), meaning we have a chance to become infected at the same time with the flu, which is the flu, with Covid 19, and everyone knows that after these viral infections patients get bacterial pneumonia with pneumococcus, and many or with staphylococcus “, said Dr. Ion Alexie.

According to the doctor, the best way to keep us away from health problems is the flu and pneumococcal vaccination.

“People over the age of 65 should be vaccinated against pneumococcus, the bacterium that causes the most common pneumonia. And for patients between 19 and 65 years old who have chronic diseases, those chronic diseases that put patients at risk for Covid “”, said Dr. Ion Alexie.

Doctor Ion Alexie hopes that monoclonal antibodies will be invented soon. These are identical laboratory-created forms of certain types of antibodies. In the absence of a vaccine, immunotherapy could be the lifeline.

A team of Dutch researchers has already discovered a monoclonal antibody capable of neutralizing the new coronavirus in the laboratory, but studies are still needed. AFP.
