‘Asymptomatic F0 turns severe in just a few hours’

`This requires extremely important monitoring and care of asymptomatic patients, especially in facilities on the 1st and 2nd floors of the 5-storey tower model,` Mr. Son shared with the press this afternoon.

Recently, social networks shared information that some F0s got worse too quickly, could not be taken to the hospital in time, and died at home.

`In the coming time, this system will operate more synchronously, hopefully people will receive better care and avoid unfortunate serious cases,` Mr. Son said.

According to Mr. Son, the current advantage is that all F1 are quarantined at home, and centralized quarantine facilities in districts can increase their capacity to receive F0.

Currently, the treatment regimen for severe and critically ill patients has many changes, from treatment practices in Vietnam in recent times, as well as updated medical literature, research, and recommendations of scientific documents.

Mr. Son analyzed that in terms of pathogenesis, scientists also discovered many changes.

`Some drugs that were previously used at a later stage are now recommended for early use, such as anticoagulants and corticosteroids,` Mr. Son said.

Mr. Son commented that the epidemic in Ho Chi Minh City is developing complicatedly.

`If the response is good, hopefully in the next two weeks, the epidemic can basically be controlled,` Mr. Son hoped.

The Ministry of Health is continuing to mobilize human resources from localities that have not yet had a serious epidemic nationwide, central hospitals, and hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City.

On the evening of July 24, Deputy Minister Son, as Head of the Special Standing Department of the Ministry of Health in Ho Chi Minh City, sent a letter calling on all medical forces to participate in fighting the epidemic.

`Hopefully in the coming time, the number of registrations will increase further,` Mr. Son said, adding that he will cooperate with the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Health to build programs and use this resource in the most effective way.

Deputy Minister of Health Nguyen Truong Son (right) discussed with doctor Nguyen Thanh Linh, Deputy Director of the Covid-19 Resuscitation Hospital, on the afternoon of July 26.

According to statistics from the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Health, the number of asymptomatic and mild patients accounts for about 80% of the total number of Covid-19 cases.
