(BGO) - In May and June 2021, the Covid-19 pandemic developed complicatedly in industrial parks in Bac Giang province with more than 5,700 infections. At the peak, the whole province had to set up 18 facilities for treating Covid-19 patients.

A severe case of Covid-19 was successfully treated at the provincial General Hospital.

During this outbreak, with the support of leading hospitals in the country, the provincial General Hospital has successfully treated thousands of Covid-19 patients.

Level-2 Specialist Nguyen Nhu Pho, Deputy Director of the provincial General Hospital, said: "The unit was responsible for treating Covid-19 patients in three locations: the Department of Infectious Diseases under the provincial General Hospital, the Covid-19 treatment hospital No. 2 and the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the provincial Psychiatric Hospital. These places offered treatment to groups of patients with different levels from asymptomatic, mild to severe and dangerous. Many cases being treated under the most common regimen were quickly transferred to the ICU for breathing support, dialysis, and ECMO." 

Therefore, the hospital arranged human resources and applied flexible treatment regimens to ensure the patients’ health. In addition to complying with the treatment regimen of the Ministry of Health, it also used traditional medicine remedies.

The hospital’s Department of Traditional Medicine has supported treatment with two remedies: drinking black bean juice and water imbued with green chiretta (Andrographis paniculata) twice a day. It used diluted salt solution as a daily mouthwash for medical staff and patients to disinfect the nasopharynx, preventing the virus from attacking the lower respiratory tract.

The provincial General Hospital used robots to disinfect the environment, measure the temperature of patients, and transport food and medical supplies. During the outbreaks, the hospital's treatment facilities were kept safe.

Although there was no experience in treating Covid-19 patients, in an urgent situation when the number of infected people increased, the province quickly directed the expansion of facilities for admitting patients. It implemented a "3-layer tower" model to admit and treat patients at different levels: the first layer for asymptomatic patients, the second for mild cases, and the third for patients with severe symptoms.

With the support of the whole country, the health sector arranged two intensive care units (ICUs) at the provincial Lung Hospital and the provincial Psychiatric Hospital accommodating 159 beds with modern specialized equipment. Hospitals and medical centers were responsible for treating cases with mild symptoms. Some facilities were converted into those quarantining and treating asymptomatic patients, keeping their health stable.
