Treatment for COVID-19 is better than a year ago. It still has a long way to go. Care has been improved, but in the last 12 months, it’s mainly been trial and a mistake.
It has been leading to missing opportunities to ease suffering, experts advise.
The number of people dying from COVID-19 today more than in January, but still, well over 1,000 Americans die from the deadly virus each. More and more people are dying from the fatal disease every day-alone at home or in hospitals, suffering from the disease gasping for air, suffering from heart attacks or getting quietly away.
The treatment for more sick people has been improved from the day the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global virus pandemic a year ago. It is terrible news that 20% of patients are sick enough to be admitted to the hospitals to treat the virus.
Still end up in extreme care, a figure that hasn’t shown any change in the last year, said Dr Kevin Tracey, a neurosurgeon and head CEO of the Feinstein Institute for medical research, the research arm
of Northwell Health, NEW York’s most significant medical health care provider.
The death rates are consistently high in the ICU, he said.
While the doctors confronting the first lines state that they care for the patients and are working better than they were working a year ago, the disease is better studied by them and has helped them understand the condition.
But the last 12 months have been filled with trying and mistakes, rather than proper working, he and others said, with adequate organising of work and the management of things it
has been easier to cure the disease.
The chances of turning millions of people’s miserable experiences into a message for other people have been missed.
