Dr. Muhammad Awad Taj El-Din, Adviser to the President of the Republic for Health Affairs, said that a doctor who can distinguish between a cold and infection with the Corona virus is a distinguished doctor, and he can put a line between them so that he distinguishes between the two infections.
He added, in an intervention with the media, Omar Adib, on the “Al-Hekaya” program, which is broadcast on the “Al-Hekaya” channel.MBC Egypt: “For Corona, the number of infections is very small, and the cases are very simple, and they are treated with traditional medicines and cold medicines, and therefore the difference between Corona and the common cold is almost non-existent because of the great similarity between them.”
He said: “In Corona injuries, the temperature is higher, the sore throat is greater, the body is broken down more, and the duration of the disease has developed for several days compared to the normal cold, and when I look at the patient, I have two possibilities, but if the patient asks me, is this Corona? I tell him yes. It is corona, treat as if you have corona, take your tests normally and isolate temporarily while you continue to treat.”
He continued: “Severe cases of corona infections are very simple, and by the way, a cold, like Corona, can lead to inflammation in the lower respiratory tract, and as for tuberculosis, it is not over globally, and the continent most suffering from tuberculosis and malaria, is the continent of Africa, wars and problems.” In the area, it led to the emergence of some other diseases.
He said: “What made tuberculosis spread in the world again, is the acquired immunodeficiency disease, which reduces immunity and spreads tuberculosis. As for our position, the infection rate in Egypt is 10 now per 100,000 citizens.”
He added: “Whoever receives two doses against corona, he can get the third and fourth dose, because the effect of the vaccine reduces the severity of the disease, because the effect ends after 6 months of receiving the vaccine, and some of those who are treated from corona develop lung fibrosis. Unfortunately, kidney transplantation is a very difficult and complicated process.”
