Whatever it is, the resultant effects on mankind life will never the same again and the consequences are huge.

Coronavirus restrictions affecting the mental health and lifestyle of healthy over 60 years in UAE (Gulf News Report)

Gulf News exclusive report 11 May 2020 brought to the attention stories of a healthy British citizens over 60 years working and living in UAE such as in businesses and other sectors.  According to the new roles preventing them from going to the supermarkets to buy their groceries and food.   Like Ms Dorman, Mrs Jacqui Radford, Mr Radford,  Karim and many others senior citizens including doctors may have similar stories and suffering.    It is damaging for mental health, physical health and nutritional health so as immunity of the over 60 years.

They requested designated hours to do their shopping however not yet.

The report also raised the issue of such restricted quarantine of healthy individuals may badly affect their physical and mental health.    

Certainly, among the over 60 years are senior doctors and health workers who dedicated their life to their community.   An exemption for them is rewarding. 

The UAE relevant authorities response to this issue not yet and a positive one is needed soon to alleviate suffering of important senior sectors in society. 

Next Coronavirus recombination and pandemics is around 2027

Irrespective of how the novel coronavirus-19 emerged, we know for sure it started in Wuhan in China.  The main source was said to be from bats with a possible intermediate animal likely the pangolin which is endangered animal used for food and medicine in China.   

An international law regulating the relation to the wild animal is needed to prevent not only illegal use or trafficking but endanger to human health.  

COVID-19 will change the way countries strategies towards their health systems and its readiness for pandemics or disasters.  The risks of death among doctors, nurses and health staff will change how the new generations look to these professions in future.  

If the SARS-CoV-19 resulted from natural recombination it is therefore based on SARS 2003, MERS 2012 and SARS-2 2019, the next pandemics will be around 2027 which will be more sever as the virus will modify itself to become more strong, fatal and fast spreading. 

It is therefore, vaccine is needed and should be obligatory as too the antiviral trials specifically towards coronavirus.  SARS-CoV-19 will be attenuated and herd immunity already developing.  It be here with us but weaker and only cause flu like illness like the H1N1.  The R0 is less than 1 now which means the epidemics is low and will soon regress like any other viral illness, however preventative measure should be observed till vaccine or effective antiviral.    

Lastly, the successful states are those who can manage the pandemic and on the same time maintaining the normal health services of its citizens and economy. 

COVID-19 deprived the other patients from accessing their health systems: alternative strategies needed

At the beginning of the spread of the pandemic everyone rushed to try to stop it and the numbers of the viral infection exhausted the health systems of most countries.  Now and after months of the pandemic it resulted in deprivation of the other patients from the need of the health services such as patients with cancer, chronic diseases, surgery, bone marrow, vaccinations, children welfare, and so on.   There is fear from COVID inside the health centers and hospitals and that people will not take their children for vaccinations resulted in re-emerging of the killer diseases such as Measles, whooping cough, polio and others which are more dangerous than COVID-19.   It is now 4 months which is long time for vaccines and for certain conditions like cancers.

As COVID-19 declining and it will decline more as per the nature of any pandemics due to many factors like immunity and the virus become weaker, the health systems like hospitals should be brought back to its normal non-COVID work to avoid more deprivations.   The remaining COVID patients more than 85% of them are stable and only needing few days to turn negative and those can go for isolation in hotels or other centers converted into isolation centers.   Those who need ICU can be admitted into specific COVID centers.  

By this governments will free their major health system so as to normalize it for other patients in desperate need.   Otherwise spreading the COVID work everywhere will deprive other patients and more death may result from such deprivation, lack of vaccinations and the killer diseases.   The health authorities should take this warning seriously to avoid re-emergence of the killer diseases.   Some of them are already emerging like measles.  

It is simply take COVID work into hotels centers and ICU specific centers and bring back other health facilities back to non-COVID normal work to maintain normal health system and healthier communities.
