We are in the days spoken of are the bets in the hundreds of billions, in order to reduce the impact of the current viruskrisen, the state temporarily, of the responsibility for the payment of any absence due to illness. It is decided that the person who is ailing gets to stay at home with an allowance from the first day, and do not have a medical certificate for the first couple of weeks, but it is not possible to subject the patient to remain at home in order to protect themselves. While the large grip is made, we must not forget that we are also able to do small actions that are targeted to particularly vulnerable groups at risk, with the costs can provide significant health benefits.
for , that is to say, that the consideration must be given not only to those who are already infected. We are professors of nephrology, respectively, the representative of the organisation Njurförbundet, and in the field related to this njurtransplanterade of the patients, and in patients who are being treated with immunosuppressive drugs for certain infections.
It is a new coronavirus spread rapidly all over Sweden. The steps that have been taken should not be expected to stop, only to slow down the pace of the spread of infection. Most of the people who are infected may only be a mild illness that resembles the common flu, at risk groups, the situation is quite different. Figures from the China, for example, if the mortality rate of more than 10 per cent of people over the age of 80. In a similar way, the risk is greatly increased if you have an underlying medical condition.
this is a rättvisekrav, is an act of solidarity. People who are in need of protection should not be dependent on their career choices or their employer's good will.
Exactly what are the diseases and the organ involvement, which pose the greatest risk, is not clear, but the information from official chinese documents, talking among other things about the heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes. Some of the published reports on the progress of the patients in China, with a variety of treatments, we do not have access at the present time, however, the njurtransplanterade are taking drugs that can slow down their immune system, which in general reduces the ability to fight the virus.
the People who belong to a risk group should, to the greatest extent possible, avoid contact with people outside their own family. This means that they should wash their hands thoroughly, stay home, travel in their own vehicle, for example when they need to go to health facilities when they are outdoors, they should maintain a distance of a few feet from the others, and so on.
the People in the at-risk groups who are of working age, should be given the opportunity to work from home, this will not work in this industry, if you work as a teacher, a nurse, a bus driver, or in a retail store, it is no longer possible. In order to protect them, it should now be made, which will give them the opportunity to be at home, with a financial contribution.
. Thus, it is currently not possible to remain at home in order to protect yourself, this is what we think of politicians, and/or the relevant authorities immediately to make a change. We see this as a rättvisekrav, is an act of solidarity. People who are in need of protection should not be dependent on their career choices or their employer's good will.
it is to be understood to apply to more types of patients, not just patients. The problem is similar for all of the transplanted organs, such as the heart, liver, and lungs. In patients with congenital immunbrister should, of course, also be isolated in the current state of affairs. Also, the treatment for cancer reduces your immune system, but patients who receive treatment with radiation therapy or chemotherapy, should be able to sjukskrivas the already existing rules and therefore do not need the special exception.
in Patients with severe respiratory disease is perhaps the largest of the group, with the need for protection, because this virus is mostly set in the upper respiratory tract. Another group of patients are those with inflammatory illnesses, it is most definitely individuals who need to be protected, but also to those who are taking medications in which the risk is deemed unacceptable, or where the medication is temporarily adjusted downwards. All the medicines do not need to be reduced, there is data from China that indicate that a moderate dose of, for example, corticosteroids may be of benefit early in the course of the disease.
. Sweden around 6,000 njurtransplanterade and may of 2000, with inflammation of the kidneys caused by systemic vasculitis, is the most frequent indication for immunosuppressive therapy in the njursjukvården is approximately half over 65 years of age. Even though the compensation was to be given to a larger number of patients with a similar pathological effect, that is, the total number is not limited. Lives can be saved, both directly and indirectly.
the Probability of becoming seriously ill and dying will be reduced, at the same time, there is a great risk that these people in the event of an infection can be very sick and need extensive care, which we at all cost want to avoid. It is plausible that it requires a doctor's certificate in order to receive this benefit, and the health Board should urgently draw up advice on the criteria to be applied and for how long the certificate should be valid.
We would like to, therefore, this is a call to get the authorities to the ear, so that they are able to act quickly and decisively in order that they get the protection they need.
it is possible to get a smittskyddspenning for people with a weak immune system that protect them against infection!
