“Especially in this epidemic, the clinical manifestations of patients are different from the previous epidemic with mutations. Specifically, even young people without underlying diseases, lung damage is also very rapid, often occurs from the 7th to the 10th day, as soon as symptoms appear, after a few days, white blur appears on both sides of the lungs, “said Khoa. “Therefore, the risk of death may be in age groups, not only in the elderly and those with underlying diseases. Therefore, the treatment work also requires posing the problem of coping, responding to possible situations”.
