The chief physician of the Leader-Medicine medical center, pediatrician, infectious disease specialist, vaccinologist Yevgeny Timakov, contrary to the UN Secretary General, noted the main danger to the health of children in the reduction of vaccination coverage and forced quarantine. UN Secretary General António Guterres warned that hundreds of thousands of children in 2020 will be at risk of death due to the coronavirus pandemic. He clarified that as a result of the economic crisis, many will face a reduction in income and begin to save on healthy food, which primarily affects children and pregnant women. Another problem, the UN head called the suspension of vaccination against measles and poliomyelitis in a number of countries. The chief physician of the Leader-Medicine medical center, pediatrician, infectious disease specialist, vaccinologist Evgeny Timakov confirmed the UN Secretary General's fears on the air of the NSN, specifying that children are also threatened with exacerbation of chronic diseases. “Today, and so hundreds of thousands of children every year die in disadvantaged countries from hunger and disease, because medicine there is not up to the mark. But lethality will definitely increase and this will be associated not only with malnutrition, but also with less vaccination coverage. Also, we should expect an exacerbation of chronic diseases, due to the fact that 4 billion people are in quarantine, and this is physical inactivity, lack of fresh air and a subsequent decrease in immunity and metabolism,”said the pediatrician. Evgeny Timakov also confirmed the information that children are more likely to get sick with coronavirus, but noted among them the risk groups. “Children do get sick with coronavirus easier, but up to 5 years of age, the infection is more difficult, in children with chronic diseases it is also more severe and in children with an unhealthy lifestyle or with a large body weight,” the doctor added. In addition, he told how pediatricians work today in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. “The work of the pediatrician has now become much more intensive, because if earlier children could be invited to the clinic, and the doctor did most of the examinations there, now, due to the coronavirus pandemic, most of the examinations have to be carried out at home, which spends much more physical and psychological resources. In addition, there is always a risk of contracting the coronavirus,”Timakov said. Earlier, the most unusual symptom of the coronavirus became known. Italian and Spanish doctors treating patients with COVID-19 concluded that a rash on the legs could be one of the symptoms of the new coronavirus infection. Doctors say that at the moment every fifth Italian infected with a coronavirus infection has a similar symptom.
