47,028 new patients…maintain a moderate increase
481 seriously ill patients… There were 39 deaths
From today, 330 beds for critically ill patients will be reopened
Corona 19 seriously ill patients recorded 400 for 9 consecutive days.
In particular, it has been confirmed that there are more deaths in the elderly than in the early days of the Corona 19 outbreak, and the government will start managing extra beds for severe cases from today.
This was reported by journalist Kim Hyun-ah.
The rise in new COVID-19 cases has slowed.
There were about 47,000 people there at 0:00, an increase of about 1,000 from a week ago, but a decrease of more than 1,400 from two weeks ago.
However, the number of seriously ill patients was close to 500 and 39 deaths occurred.
Along with the increase in critically ill patients, the risk of the elderly also increases.
According to the data on the severity rate and death rate according to the epidemic of the Corona 19 mutation released by the quarantine authorities, the severity rate and death rate of Corona 19 have decreased by more than 1/20 since the BA. 2.5 times increase.
It has been confirmed that managing severe illness in the elderly is the key to managing winter season recurrence.
The government is preparing for an increase in human casualties by managing 330 additional beds for critically ill patients, mainly in tertiary general hospitals and large general hospitals.
We are also repeatedly emphasizing additional vaccinations during the winter season, especially for people over the age of 60 and people vulnerable to infection.
If the additional vaccination in winter is unified with the bivalent vaccination, the nth vaccination disappears and vaccination becomes simple with the basic vaccination and the bivalent vaccination.
In this way, vaccine fatigue is reduced and immunity is more than double that of existing vaccines, so the response effect to a recurrent outbreak is expected to be greater.
