How does Sudan deal with the corona crisis?
Corona in Sudan .. “Hiding disease” is a crisis that threatens health personnel
The number of doctors expressed their deep concern about the phenomenon of concealing many of the patients visiting hospitals about their infection with the emerging coronavirus, which exposes health personnel to a real danger, especially in light of the apparent shortage in the initial investigation devices and the means and clothing necessary to protect doctors and health personnel.
The increase in injuries among the medical staff greatly exacerbates the crisis, as it leads to the temporary exit of a large number of these staff from service. Work has also been suspended in many hospitals, due to the precautionary measures taken when it was discovered that a person with coronas had been admitted to a hospital not designated for receiving cases.
The greatest risk facing medical personnel is cases that hospitals review with other diseases and do not know that they carry the Coronavirus, but they do not show symptoms of the disease, as these cases are dealt with in most cases without following the necessary protocols to protect from the corona.
The risk lies with some regular reviewers who hide the symptoms of corona for reasons related to societal culture, or ignorance of the nature of the disease itself.
At the beginning of the outbreak of the Corona pandemic, I did in all hospital accidents the screening process, but with the outbreak of the disease and its appearance with different symptoms, there are some patients who hide their symptoms and their medical history such as travel, which led to the injury of much medical personnel with Covid-19, despite taking precautionary measures.
The lack of capabilities also poses a threat to health personnel. This indicates an acute shortage of protective clothing and devices that play an important role in protecting the medical staff, and consequently, their shortage leads to an increase in the number of injuries in the medical community.
The medical staff in Sudan work under difficult and complex conditions. Despite the great efforts made by the Ministry of Health to deal with the pandemic, there are real obstacles facing the health sector due to the deliberate neglect suffered during the years of the rule of the isolated Omar Al-Bashir, which spanned thirty years.
