Since Paris was locked due to the second round of the coronavirus surge, doctors said that after learning the valuable experience of treating the first wave of coronavirus early this year, they now have better conditions to save lives.
Philippe Montravers and the 150 doctors and nurses at the Bichat Hospital he led were the first institutions outside of China to record COVID-19-related deaths in February, and they said they are now experts in treating the virus.
He said: “In the first wave, people were afraid to go to the hospital. They were afraid and afraid of being infected. When they arrived, they were already on their last legs, exhausted and unable to move, so…!-We inserted them. Pipe and ventilate.”
Now, hospitals have reduced their reliance on invasive treatments, and steroids are used to treat patients, which are not yet available during the first wave. Montravers said that if patients need oxygen, hospital doctors can distribute oxygen through masks instead of tubes. Montlavus said patients can also better understand the situation and seek medical attention as soon as they feel the onset of coronavirus symptoms. He said that as a result, the patient’s time in the hospital has been reduced.
According to Johns Hopkins University, there are 1,915,677 coronavirus cases in France and the university has been monitoring COVID-19 globally. The country recorded 42,600 deaths.
