Update on Long COVID

Recently, Chen C and his team from the United States A systematic global review of academic data until March 13, 2022 was conducted and a meta-analysis was performed. To see the incidence of Long COVID or Post COVID conditions in people infected with COVID-19. Published in the International Medical Journal of Infectious Diseases Journal of Infectious Diseases on April 16, 2022, 50 studies were reviewed and 41 were meta-analyses.

Thus, it reflects us that the long-term impact of Long COVID is more common than anticipated. It will undermine the performance of daily life, relationships and work, and incur a costly burden on patients, families and the country in the long run.

Infected so it doesn’t end with just recovering or dying, but there will be Long COVID as the 3th route, which is a rough and long road.

Please don’t be fooled by lies, illusions, that it’s lame, it’s just a common cold, take it and it’ll disappear in no time. At a glance, it’s local…because in the end, the culprit is the person who believes and acts good, doesn’t protect it, while the scammers float away, don’t care, and don’t take responsibility.

Living life, earning a living, or studying is…it can be done for sure…but you have to be mindful. Optimize processes to be safe, avoid risky activities risky behavior and risk locations and prevent routine examples
It’s best not to be infected.

Always wear a mask…this is the heart of the matter. Because it is the last line of defense for each person.

Covid and the death rate still without proactive measures

Meanwhile, the Rural Medical Club revealed that the Ministry of Public Health is currently trying to reduce deaths as much as possible by opening up ICU beds to be ready for critically ill patients. But that’s the solution. The rate of serious morbidity and mortality is increasing every day, with about three-quarters of them being elderly and not vaccinated.

There are 2 million people over 60 years of age who are not vaccinated. Currently, the rate of vaccination in the elderly who come to get more injections or go to the home is only 5,000 more people per day. We have ordered 30 million doses of Pfizer vaccine, 60 million doses of Astra. All of these vaccine stocks are overflowing. The value of the order is several billion baht. I don’t know where to go

The best preventive public health measure is vaccines. Although not very attached But each other is seriously ill and can clearly die. Today’s question is What measures will the government and the Ministry of Health have to promote vaccination among the elderly? Or will we just let it go?


The Rural Medical Association has charted the number of severely ill COVID-19 patients who are intubated in the ICU, showing that the number is still growing every day. This figure indicates that the mortality rate will continue to rise for quite some time if no effective measures are taken.

This is a big piece of government homework. Local workers await the wow policy and that can actually help reduce morbidity and mortality.
