“Hospitals are full of new people who thought Covid didn’t reach them”, warns Filipe Froes

The consultant to the Directorate-General for Health says that there are three conclusions to be taken into account.

First of all, this problem is not local, but at all, because the virus has no borders. With the SARS-CoV-2 installed in the Metropolitan Area of ​​Lisbon, it quickly reaches other regions.

Another problem is related to asymptomatic people or those who have mild symptoms and continue to do their daily routine.

Finally, Filipe Frois, in a message, says that the younger ones think that this virus attacks lightly and does not reach them, to add that “hospitals are full of people like that.”

In an interview conducted by the journalist Margarida Vaz, from Antena 1, the specialist states that, at this moment, it is necessary to define a public health strategy of action, with allocation of human resources and means and implement intervention, diagnostic and laboratory regimes in a timely manner. .

For Filipe Froes it is essential to carry out the so-called “three t: Test; Track and Trace “- test, identify carriers and contact traces.

Only in this way can the spread of the new coronavirus be controlled.
