Fear Of Coronavirus Has Reportedly Caused Some Patients To Forego Needed Medical Care
The New York Times (5/25) reports, “In a world seeded with anxiety, fear is gripping not just people who are ill with the coronavirus but those in urgent need of other medical care.” While “the number of Covid cases declines in many places, patients with cancer, heart disease and strokes, among others, are delaying or forgoing critical procedures that could keep them alive.” Furthermore, “as the virus reignites in pockets of the country, people are ignoring symptoms altogether, afraid to set foot in emergency rooms or even doctors’ offices.”
CNN (5/22) reported that “as many as 80 million babies worldwide are missing out on routine childhood vaccines because of the coronavirus pandemic, the World Health Organization said Friday.” This “pandemic has disrupted vaccination programs in at least 68 countries, according to a joint news release by WHO, the global vaccine initiative Gavi, the United National Children’s Fund UNICEF and the Sabin Vaccine Institute.” The “WHO released new guidance to countries on how they can resume vaccination campaigns safely during the pandemic.” According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, “pediatricians should be doing all they can to encourage parents to bring children in for vaccinations and other important visits, including separating sick children from well children and reaching out to remind families to make appointments.”
