Most serious, crucial Unvaccinated Covid-19 patients: PHAPI
The most severe and serious cases of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) at their facilities are partially or wholly unvaccinated, according to the Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines, Inc. (PHAPI), which made the announcement on Thursday.
In a televised public briefing, PHAPI President Dr. Rene de Grano stated that the country’s private hospitals’ intensive care units “can still handle with the (amount) of Covid-19 patients.”
This came after Maria Rosario Vergeire, the DOH officer in charge stated that although the percentage of severe and serious Covid-19 cases in hospitals is rising, it is still below the cutoff.
On Monday, the department revealed that 811, or 9.7 percent, of all Covid-19 hospital admissions, were serious and urgent cases.
According to DOH data, more than 9% of hospital admissions over the previous four weeks were due to serious and dangerous infections.
The mild cases of inadvertent Covid are those that most people admit to having. In a few days, the majority of the patients who were in will be discharged. (Many of the hospitalizations are accidental Covid cases that are mild.) In a few days, they are released,” de Grano added.
He pointed out that elderly people without vaccination account for the majority of Covid-19 cases that progress to the critical or severe stage.
As of August 22, over 72,310,149 people, or 92.59 percent of the target population for the nation (78,100,578), had received the Covid-19 vaccine, including 78.01 percent of 8,721,357 seniors.
Of the population that has received all of the recommended vaccinations, 17,419,141 people have received booster doses.
“We discovered that individuals hospitalized who are immuno-compromised (and) have pre-existing diseases that cannot be totally prevented, and who are not fully vaccinated, are the ones who progress (to severe and critical),” said the doctor. adds de Grano.
As cases and hospitalizations are predicted to increase next month if the booster surge is low, the DOH is continuing to bring Covid-19 vaccinations and booster doses closer to the public through the PinasLakas Campaign.
