New treatment protocols have been developed for children with chronic diseases. Young patients will be examined and, if necessary, treated with innovative drugs.
This year, the number of children with COVID-19 has increased several times. Told about it Sergei Sobyanin in an interview with the program “Week in the City” of the TV channel “Russia 1”. According to him, this is due to the spread of the more aggressive delta strain.
“Children with chronic diseases are very hard to bear. We see that the mortality rate among children has also increased. Therefore, for a group of children who sometimes get sick with a whole bunch of chronic diseases, who do not have their own immune system, new treatment protocols have been introduced, a new set of drugs has been introduced, which is recommended by the clinical committee of the city of Moscow. This is a very important decision that will save many children’s lives. This method of treatment will be implemented everywhere in Moscow, ”said the Mayor of Moscow.
Thus, according to the new algorithm, the risk groups include children with concomitant diseases: primary immunodeficiency, oncological and hematological diseases, diabetes mellitus, severe damage to the kidneys, heart and lungs. If such children are diagnosed with COVID-19, they will be monitored by doctors at the Children’s Remote Advisory Center.
If necessary, young patients will be sent for examination and treatment to the short-term inpatient department of the children’s city clinical hospital named after Z.A. Bashlyaeva. Children will undergo blood and urine tests, computed tomography, ECG and other studies. According to the results, doctors can offer to undergo treatment with innovative drugs from the group of virus-neutralizing monoclonal antibodies and a special human anticoid immunoglobulin.
In total, during the pandemic in the capital, more than 190 thousand children were diagnosed with coronavirus infection. Most of them are schoolchildren, many from 14 to 17 years old.
According to experts, in reducing the incidence of effective vaccination will help… A study of the vaccine “Gam-Covid-Vac M” (“Sputnik V”) for safety and efficacy in children is currently underway in Moscow. So far, the first stage of the study has been completed and the preliminary selection of volunteers for the second stage has opened.
