Cases of Omicron in Europe accounted for 46% and large-scale abuse of antibiotics in Italy

it is reported that the monitoring data of the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC) show that the severity of diseases caused by Omicron is lower than those related to delta

however, ECDC also warned that preliminary studies showed that the existing vaccine may have poor epidemic prevention effect on Omicron. Given the large number of exponential growth cases caused by Omicron, even if the severity of related symptoms is low, this invisible advantage will be short-lived. Over time, Omicron, which seems to have mild symptoms, will also cause a lot of serious consequences</ P>

is reported that with the continuous spread of COVID-19, recently, Italy regional drugstores, such as azithromycin (Azithromycin) and other antibiotics sold out. The Italian Drug Administration (AIFA) said that the shortage of azithromycin and other antibiotic drugs is not an abnormal channel, but that doctors prescribe a large number of antibiotic drugs, leading to the abuse of antibiotics by patients

it is reported that AIFA calls on all patients and prescription doctors to stop the abuse of antibiotics. Azithromycin and other general antibiotics have not been approved for new crown treatment, and the drug administration does not recommend or even strongly oppose the abuse of antibiotics by patients. Pfizer biotechnology pointed out that the shortage of azithromycin mainly lies in the excessive demand</ P>

Massimo Galli, director of infectious diseases at Milan’s Sarkozy hospital, points out that bacterial pneumonia caused by COVID-19 is not common. Therefore, antibiotics are a drug that is ineffective for new crown patients and can only increase the resistance of patients. p>

Matteo bassetti, director of the infectious diseases clinic of Genoa hospital in Italy, said that people use azithromycin and other antibiotics like anti-inflammatory drugs, resulting in human resistance to antibiotics. For the treatment of patients with new crown, antibiotic drugs should not and are not necessary at all. Antibiotics are abused on a large scale, and the sequelae of the pandemic should be coupled with antibiotic resistance

on the 16th local time, the Italian Ministry of civil defense reported 149512 new confirmed cases and 248 deaths. (Boyuan)
