The manager of the “Marius Nasta” Institute of Pneumoftiziology in the Capital, Dr. Beatrice Mahler, declared that the fourth wave of the pandemic will not be milder than the previous ones, and in October she expects 10,000 daily cases of COVID-19.
“In the summer I thought it would be better, but how we perceive at this time the increase in the number of cases, how it is seen from where we are, the medical staff, how patients are affected and the cases that come to us in the hospital, I don’t think it will be better in this wave. On the contrary, I do not think we will have the example of Great Britain in which the hospitals are not so full. In Romania it will be difficult, it will be difficult in hospitals “, said the director of the Institute at Digi 24.
Beatrice Mahler also said that two weeks after school starts, the number of daily cases will double.
“I think that two weeks after we start school we will double, if not triple this figure, and I think that in October, if we do not understand that we must follow the rules and wear a mask and return to the rule that limits the transmission of infection, October it will be a month that will lead to ten thousand cases “, the pulmonologist also said.
The cases that reach ATI are much more serious, the symptoms of this wave are much more severe, says the manager of the Institute of Pneumoftiziology “Marius Nasta”.
“We see that more and more young people are sick. In intensive care we have seven patients, and out of the seven, five are intubated. We have a severity of manifestations, a much faster evolution towards intensive care of the patients who are hospitalized “, Mahler added.
The doctor said that the doctors also have to deal with the people, who say that some are outraged and say that they feel worse because they came to the hospital.
“I had this reply: I came to the hospital and I feel worse than when I came,” explains the doctor, who points out that the disease progresses in some people despite treatment.
