“Covid-19 vaccine” to reduce serious illness, reduce the severity of “Omicron”

after Department of Medical Sciences Confirmation of infection test resultsCovid-19 An American man came from Spain. Found a strain of covid “Omicron” The first in Thailand from the RT-PCR test, which the said patient Traveling to Thailand from the Test and Go category

Today (6 Dec. 19) the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration or Prof. The latest data report states that Breed “Omicron” It spreads 2-5 times faster than previous strains. Most infected people have no symptoms or few symptoms. flu-like (Infected cases reported abroad Most of them do not require hospitalization) and there have been no reports of Omicron cases and deaths.

However, although there are currently no reportsComikron infection died, but maintaining measures and accelerating vaccination is necessary, according to the Prof. Preventive measure is to vaccinate as much as possible. This includes the use of strict personal protection measures such as wearing masks, washing hands, social distancing and VUCA.

Raise the level of surveillance at the entrances and exits of the country. and the place of sightseeing randomly screened for risk groups and influenza patients who are clusters (Cluster) send samples of the pathogens found from travelers or suspected cases Go to the Omikron species test at the Department of Medical Sciences.

  • Vaccines also prevent serious illness.

Dr. Opas Karnkawinpong, MD. Director-General of the Department of Disease Control revealed that Is Omikron infection different from other species? is also mainly transmitted through aerosol air contact very little through the air Will be found in some cases is a stuffy room or a room with a high spread of infection. not spread through the air

Vaccine Either type is not 100% protective against infection, but it is effective in preventing infection. including information from the Ministry of Public Health that led the study which through analysis Thailand is one of the countries where many brands of vaccines are used. And found the effectiveness of the vaccine against 50-80% of the infection, but it can prevent serious illness and death quite very well at the level of 80-90% or more. And another part reduces the severity of the infection.” Dr Opas said

  • Vaccines reduce the severity of the disease.

On the other hand, Prof. Dr. Yong Phuworawan, head of the Center for Specialization in clinical virology Faculty of Medicine Chulalongkorn University Post via personal facebook Yong Poovorawan stating that, as previously mentioned It would be impossible for this disease to go away even if there were patients, but if the symptoms were not severe, or not dead There are thousands of patients but no deaths or the death toll is the primary unit It must be accepted.

Every year, in Thailand, there are 100-200 deaths from influenza per year, which are those with congenital disease, the elderly, young children, obese people, pregnant women. Similarly, next to covid 19 if everyone is immune. But will still find this disease seasonally. especially the same season as the flu In Thailand it is the rainy season. From June to September or during the first semester of students and will meet again for a while in winter approx. January to March Or during the second semester of every year, every child born until the age of 9 is almost nonexistent. who never had the flu And we add vaccination to the at risk group. to reduce the mortality rate

In the future, if everyone is immune to the covid-19 virus, whether caused by infection. or from vaccination, most or almost all Such immunity can reduce the severity of the disease. This disease is a seasonal disease. and will have a high incidence during the same period as influenza

so now Everyone must strengthen their own immunity by choosing during vaccination With infection, vaccination is probably a better method than infection. which may be a disease The benefits of vaccines go beyond infection. Therefore, I would like everyone to be vaccinated as scheduled.
