SWITZERLAND
The Swiss government announced on Wednesday that it has cut coronavirus-related quarantine times from 10 to five days. The new rules will come into force on Thursday.

The Swiss Federal Council explains that the reason for this decision is the increasing number of infections with the Omikron variant, which has a much faster transmission than the previous variants and a shorter time of disease development in the body. Swiss authorities have made no secret of the fact that tens of thousands of people contract the coronavirus every day, so there are fears that the current wave of the pandemic could cripple the healthcare system soon. It is stressed that although the Omikron appears less dangerous than the previous variants, hospitalization is expected to increase due to the very high number of infections, which rose to 32,881 new cases on Wednesday.

“It can be assumed that the rapid increase in the incidence of Covid-19 will lead medical care, or rather its efficiency in terms of nurses, to the limit” – predict the authorities. In Switzerland, two-thirds of the population have so far gone through the full vaccination course, with 30 percent of the population having received a booster dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. “The epidemic situation is critical and still difficult to assess,” wrote the Swiss government in a press release, which also proposes an extension to the end of March of restrictions on public life introduced last month. You will need to show proof of vaccination or recovery when entering many public places, and work from home where possible.

These are 234 confirmed infections with the omicron version in samples that have recently been sequenced” – said Andrusiewicz.

He indicated that “there are still two provinces that dominate in terms of omicron detection are the Pomeranian Voivodship and the Masovian Voivodship”. “In each of these provinces, more than 60 cases of the omicron version were detected” – he said. He recalled that “recently we had a 7% share of the omicron in the population, now we have 8%”. As he said, this means that more and more infections are detected with this variant of the coronavirus. “I think that at the end of January we will have it at the level of more or less 50% and above” – ​​added Andrusiewicz. “A third dose, a booster dose, can protect us from the omicron. We encourage you to take this dose all the time, just like we encourage you to vaccinate children” – he said.

This 200,000 is the correct number of COVID-19 victims – emphasized prof. Robert Flisiak, president of the Polish Society of Epidemiologists and Doctors of Infectious Diseases, member of the Medical Council at the prime minister. As he explained, 100 thousand. of the deceased are identified persons, and there are also extra-dimensional deaths.

Health Minister Adam Niedzielski informed on Tuesday that over 100,000 people have died in Poland since the beginning of the pandemic. people infected with the coronavirus. Prof. Flisiak commented on this data on TVN 24 on Tuesday evening.

“First of all, let’s be honest: this is not a real number. 100,000 are identified people who were tested and diagnosed with the infection. Besides, there are also extra-dimensional deaths, in which we also break records. It is estimated that this is twice as many. “- emphasized the professor.

“You could say that 200,000 is the right number that we should celebrate today with silence,” he added.

Speaking of the causes, he pointed out that we have a “devastated health care system, infrastructure”, and the fewest doctors and nurses in Europe per million inhabitants. “These are hard data reported for many years by the European Commission, by the OECD” – he explained.

“It is not that we are somewhere at the end of the peloton. We are far behind the peloton. If there is no staff, even if there were equipment, if there was infrastructure, not much could be done. And this equipment and infrastructure is not there” – he said prof. Flisiak.

As he noted, the fact that we do not vaccinate also contributes to the continuous increase in the number of people who die from COVID-19.

Prof. Flisiak was also asked about reports that some members of the Medical Council were considering resignation. In this context, he was also asked whether the possible reason would be the statement of the Małopolska education superintendent, Barbara Nowak, who called vaccination against COVID-19 an “experiment”, or maybe the fact that expert advice is not listened to.

The professor noted that at the beginning of the cooperation, the members of the Council were full of enthusiasm, because they were listened to, but for some time they have not been. In his opinion, frustration and discouragement are growing. “Especially if we hear from members of the government who should support any pro-vaccination, voices attacking us,” he said.

The doctor emphasized that the goal of the government should be to combat the epidemic and the declaration shows that it is so. “But we all know that at some point an impenetrable wall appears in the form of the mythical parliamentary majority” – he noted.

“The formula (of the Medical Council – PAP) has probably run out because we are not able to push through any other actions” – said prof. Flisiak. “What we do next is still in abeyance. We don’t make decisions, we don’t want to make rash decisions. Nor is it that because of one person’s behavior, we make a decision. It may be a bitterness, but it is not. direct reason “- he added.

By Tuesday, the number of Covid-19 patients in US hospitals reached a record high, fueled by the wave of infections with the Omikron variant virus, of more than 145,900. This is overloading facilities and forcing states to seek emergency solutions.
According to the Ministry of Health, the number of people hospitalized due to Covid-19 exceeded the previous peak – on January 14, 2021 – of people treated in hospitals, which was 142,246.

“Hospitals are increasingly struggling with staffing problems – not only because of increased demand, but also because their employees, who are at high risk of infection, have to isolate themselves after testing positive for Covid,” emphasizes CNN.

For example, the state of Virginia declared a limited state of emergency and allowed hospitals to increase the number of beds. Texas has hired and currently trains approx. 2.7 thousand people to help. medical workers. Kentucky mobilized the National Guard to help 30 health care facilities.

According to data from the Johns Hopkins University in the USA, an average of over 754,200 new cases of Covid-19 were recorded daily during the last week – three times more than the average from last winter and 4.5 times more than on September 1, when the wave of infections was caused by the Delta coronavirus variant.

“Fully vaccinated people account for an increasing proportion of those hospitalized with Covid-19, but hospitalizations among those who have received a booster dose are still rare. (…) The risk of hospitalization was eight times higher in unvaccinated people than in fully vaccinated people. In the last week of November, data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that hospitalization rates were about 17 times higher in unvaccinated than fully vaccinated people, ”reports CNN.
