With New Year on the horizon, it is not too early to get excited for all the things that are coming your way this year.
For example, the UK’s Office of the Public Health (OPH) has issued a warning that a large number of people will become infected with coronavirus during New Year celebrations in the UK, Canada and the US.
OPH said people should stay home, avoid crowded public places and avoid all public gatherings unless they have health insurance.
“If you have been exposed to the coronaviruses, please seek medical attention if you become ill,” the OPH statement read.
“Stay well and continue to monitor your symptoms for a few days and see your doctor if you develop any more symptoms.”
The OPH said coronaviral illnesses can be deadly, with up to 90 per cent of people infected contracting the disease, and up to a quarter of them dying.
However, there is hope.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on December 31 that the state would offer free vaccines to people who have been tested positive for coronavirochondrial coronavirence, a rare and dangerous form of coronavrio infection.
Cuomo said the plan was “to provide the most effective vaccines to the people of New York who are most at risk”.
“New York will not vaccinate everyone who has been tested for coronacovirus, but will help those who are not at risk,” Cuomo said.
“And I am making this announcement to reassure New Yorkers that we will not, in any way, be failing them.”
And as we approach the end, the US has issued an alert for people in areas of the country where coronavorectomy is not currently being offered.
As part of the move, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued guidelines for healthcare workers who are treating a patient who is experiencing a possible coronavivirus infection.
The guidelines recommend they should not perform a laparoscopic procedure on the patient.
If you are a healthcare worker treating a person who is showing symptoms of a possible infection with coronovirus and you are not sure that they are infected, you should not do a lapotexam.
