According to these lines, he pointed this out ““Primary health care is the mainstay of virus research.”.
Cinza stated that the current state of pandemic put on the table the need to examine a disease new from which nothing was known. In this perspective, he emphasized that Primary care is a lot “important “ at the time of control of patients with Covid-19. “To catch up welcomingIt is true that the ICC and the departments of pulmonology and internal medicine are fundamentally carrying the burden, but there we are talking only about admitted patients. It would be interesting to know more about patients outpatient », pointed out ..
In this context, Sinza evaluates Primary Health Care as the mainstay of Covid’s examination and explains the two studies conducted by the research agency Semergen in order to analyze the state of recruited infected patients and GPs.
“During the first wave of the pandemic, we did a study called AP value. They recruited 900 surveys with appropriate serological tests of medical staff for primary health care. In this research it was noted that seroprevalence “Against SARS-CoV-2 was much higher in medical staff than in the general population, compared to the study promoted by the Ministry of Health,” explained Sinza.

The idea to him 2021Depending on the progress of the pandemic, we have two preparedness studies cardiovascular risk and psoriasis and pathology with clinical examination of pain. We want to start them once the situation calms down and the medical centers return to normal. “These investigations have already passed the ethics committees and the protocol has already been made,” Sinza said.
