During the coronavirus infection pandemic (SARS-CoV-2)
During the coronavirus infection pandemic (SARS-CoV-2), it is known that health workers are one of the most vulnerable groups due to being on the front line and therefore often themselves are sick and carriers of this particularly dangerous infection. In our country, 5 of those who are ill are medical workers. It is known that the virus from the human body stands still in the incubation period before the onset of symptoms, 10% of patients are asymptomatic refinery infection, and during convalescence virus may be released up to 6 weeks. The problem is that the virus is new, quickly mutates and is highly pathogenic ( its contagiousness is 2 times higher than that of the flu virus). Unfortunately, the virus is transmitted not only by airborne droplets, but also by contact, household means through surfaces. It is also known that the disease in 85% of patients proceeds with the usual symptoms of airborne viral infection, but in the elderly and those with concomitant diseases, it can progress to pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome and multi-organ dysfunction. According to who estimates, the death rate from infection reaches from 2 to 3% in different countries. As you know, the vaccines being developed in the world (15) are at the stage of clinical trials, and diagnostic tests are currently insufficient for screening for asymptomatic carriers. Therefore, it is necessary to observe preventive measures by medical professionals. The University, under the leadership of ISTC, has carried out international work on Biosafety and biosecurity from particularly dangerous infections of medical workers working in PHC and has issued a clinical guide on biosecurity from particularly dangerous infections, which is presented on the website. As a result of this work, we recommend that our students, teachers and volunteers take strict preventive measures for biosecurity and biosecurity – strictly observe the rules of dressing and removing personal protective equipment both in the centers of infection, and in the workplace, in contact with the population; be trained in the rules of medical sorting of the population, strictly observe all national preventive measures and explain to the population; constantly use disinfecting solutions based on ethanol and oxidizers. We also recommend using the medical literature on the University’s website (Dzhainakbayev N. T., Deryabin P. N., Nekrasova L. E. and others-Guide to Biosafety and biosecurity for doctors of mobile medical complexes-Almaty, 2014. – 135C. Dzhainakbayev N. T., Levchuk I. L., Tretyakov N. V.-medicine of catastrophes-M.
