Virgil Musta, about the chances of dying from the virus

Infection with the new coronavirus can be a real health hazard. In severe cases, the disease caused by the virus, Covid-19, can cause death. For this reason, doctor Virgil Musta wants to clarify for Romanians what are the possible scenarios in case of infection, the chances of death and also the repercussions that the disease can have on the body for a long time.

The creation of the vaccine has two important final goals: stopping the pandemic and inhibiting the virus in case of infection. By immunization, vaccinated people will not develop the disease at all, or, at most, will show very mild symptoms that do not endanger health. In the absence of immunization, many people risk developing a serious form of the disease, which could lead to death. Thus, the vaccine protects you more against the symptoms and severe forms of the disease, which can be life-threatening. What does doctor Virgil Musta explain about the vaccine and the severity of Covid-19 disease?

“I have been looking forward to a vaccine approved by all the competent institutions as soon as possible, because I have fully felt what this pandemic means and I know that only a vaccine can make things not continue as before for all of us. . However, before deciding whether to get vaccinated or not, I also weighed the benefits of vaccination, the risks of vaccination, as well as the risks I am exposed to if I do not get vaccinated, “said Dr. Virgil Musta of the Hospital Infectious “Victor Babeş” from Timişoara, according to

What are the possible scenarios?

“If I don’t get vaccinated: sooner or later I will get the disease. The risk of developing a moderate or severe form of the disease is over 20%, the risk of developing a critical form with intensive therapy is between 5-10%, and the risk of dying is 4-5%. In addition, over 50% of those with moderate to severe illness are left with pulmonary, cardiac, neurological or other diseases, which will create problems for the rest of my life. I have seen persistent post-covid symptoms, such as marked asthenia, fatigue, low-grade fever, heavy sweating, tingling, insomnia, various headaches, especially in a number of people who have had mild forms of the disease, symptoms that can torment you. further “, the doctor explained.

It also focuses on possible side effects. Following the immunization of a large number of people worldwide, serious side effects have been very rare.
