On the afternoon of April 7, the chairman of Hanoi People’s Committee chaired an emergency meeting of the COVID-19 epidemic prevention and control steering committee after discovering two major gaps in the prevention and control of COVID-19 epidemic from the 243rd case in Me Linh district.
Only 3 patients but 700 doctors were involved
At the start of the extraordinary meeting of the Steering Committee for COVID-19 prevention and control, Chairman of Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung presented 3 major lessons at hospitals related to patients with the 17th COVID-19, 237 and 243.
According to Chung, these 3 patients alone had nearly 300 doctors, nurses in F1, nearly 400 doctors, nurses in F2.
The President of Hanoi City especially noted the lesson from Hong Ngoc Hospital, although it has been mentioned many times, so far, the gap has been continued by other hospitals.
“There is only one patient 17 but the whole Hospital has been blocked by Hong Ngoc, 21 doctors and nurses in F1 are isolated. Yet the” battle “in the hospitals in welcoming patients is still very preliminary. “- Mr. Chung stated.
Chairman of Hanoi People’s Committee directed: “It is compulsory for all hospitals in the city to organize screening of people coming for examination, examination, request for mandatory medical declaration to those who come for examination.”
“Hospitals must organize access roads, in which the person who receives and visits must wear protective gear. At the same time control the whole process from body temperature measurement, medical declaration, including all related factors. to Bach Mai Hospital, related to the factor of having family members returning home in recent years, there are elements of family members being isolated, traveling in the country before 30-3, they must take samples for quick testing. “- Mr. Chung thoroughly understood the director of the hospital.
Mr. Chung affirmed that with the aforementioned gap in the epidemic prevention and control, the health sector and the directors of the hospitals had to disseminate and thoroughly understand all the staff and staff in the hospital, especially the doctors and nurses. , the process of receiving, examining, absolutely not subjective.
From the 243 th patient, exposed a gap due to misleading instructions on isolation
Citing the 243-day COVID-19 case in Me Linh district, Chairman of Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung stated that there was a misunderstanding of the City People’s Committee’s instructions on prevention and control of COVID-19.
“The gap from the 243-year COVID-19 patient has enormous consequences. Of the total involved, there were more than 100 cases of F1, three were positive for the first time,” Chung said. .
Mr. Chung thoroughly understood: the city requested to review people related to Bach Mai Hospital from 10-3 to 25-3, then issued a decision to quarantine.
According to Mr. Chung, in the case of the 243th patient in Me Linh, he found out through a review from March 30 but considered him to Bach Mai Hospital from March 12, so it was 14 days after no isolation. That is a misunderstanding.
Mr Chung said: “This afternoon I found the flaw very wrong leading to the past consequence, I propose to rectify it immediately.”
The Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee also instructed to conduct rapid tests and tests using Real-time PCR with all cases related to Bach Mai Hospital.
