on June 22 Dr. Teera Woratanarat, MD. Lecturer of Faculty of Medicine Chulalongkorn University Post a message via Facebook saying
“June 22, 2022…
Yesterday, around the world, 652,215 more people died, 1,048 more deaths, bringing the total to 545,539,140, with 6,342,957 deaths.
The top five with the most infections were Germany, France, Brazil, Italy and Taiwan.
Yesterday, the number of new infections had countries from Europe and Asia occupy seven of the top 10 and 15 of the world’s top 20.
…the epidemic situation of Thailand
From the Worldometer data this morning, it was found that
Number of deaths yesterday The 12th highest in the world and 2nd in Asia, although the Thai Ministry of Health has adjusted the reporting system from May 1 until the number of reports is greatly reduced.
…” reinfection There will be more chances to get sick and die.”…
It is a research result that doctors and academic circles have long wanted to know. Because it takes time to collect and track information.
Al-Aly Z and colleagues from Washington University School of Medicine, USA. Publishing study results on the effects of reinfection with COVID-19
The results were compared among 38,926 people with two or more relapses of COVID-19, with 257,427 in the first infected group and 5,396,855 in the group who had never been infected.
and assessed the outcome after 6 months. that there is a mortality rate Illness that requires hospitalization including the incidence of abnormalities in organs or systems in the body such as the heart and blood vessels Blood clotting Gastrointestinal kidney Diabetes Fatigue/fatigue Musculoskeletal, nervous system, and psychiatric conditions These disorders are known as Long COVID or Post acute COVID syndrome.
The results of the study revealed the following important things:
- Reinfection is associated with a double risk of death from a variety of causes compared to a single infection.
- A re-infection increases the risk of getting sick and requiring hospitalization three times more than a single infection.
- Re-infection causes approximately 1.5-2.5 times more abnormalities in organs and systems than a single infection.
The risk of any of the above problems will persist over the 6-month follow-up period.
The more re-infected The risks will increase accordingly.
and very importantly Reinfection poses a risk of problems. No matter how many vaccinations or not vaccinated
…The results of this study are very important. because pointing out that We need to find a way to protect ourselves well. If the epidemic situation continues and spreads throughout
people who have been infected before should be aware of the importance of self-defense Don’t get infected again, don’t be fooled, don’t get caught up in the fake news that you’ve been infected and won’t get infected again. because it is not true Today, the Omicron virus has a variety of mutations and more immune evasion than ever before. Re-infections occur much more easily.
Despite previous research showing that Omicron is infected, the likelihood of Long COVID is 50-70% less than that of the Delta strain that hit last year (or 2-3 times lower), but don’t. forget the fact that The number of people infected with Omicron is about 3.5 times more than Delta.
Therefore, the actual number of Long COVID problems to arise from Omicron is more likely than Delta. Especially if coupled with the knowledge that we know that re-infection (Reinfection) in Omicron is now more than Delta. It’s even more problematic. News that says Omicron is a finch. Don’t be afraid of Long COVID, so it shouldn’t be believed.
For those who have survived until this season May you have encouragement, live life, do business, study, study consciously, always protect yourself.
Wearing a mask is very important. It’s not the time to take it off.
With the current social conditions that are at high risk You should always wear a mask when you go out and get used to it. It’s the 33rd organ of our body. This will greatly reduce the risk.
