Posted May 15, 2018 09:07:52 Health and social care workers and other social workers across Australia have been urged to help people who are experiencing stress as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The ABC has been told the number of people affected by coronaviruses is on the rise, with more than 12,000 people being hospitalised as of Tuesday.
“There is an increased incidence of people in this period of time,” Dr Michael Dutton, a senior public health official, said.
“We have a greater number of patients coming in and they are having difficulty in managing their own symptoms.”
That’s really putting people off and I would encourage people to think about what’s right for them, what’s important for them and what’s not.
“It is also a reminder that the coronavalve strain of the virus is still circulating in the community, so people are not necessarily completely out of the woods.
Dr Dutton said while it was a great relief to see so many people returning home, he urged people to make sure they were still comfortable and safe.”
If you’re still feeling the effects, you need to stay with your GP,” he said.”[The symptoms] will get worse.
“You’ll have to stay in the hospital and your symptoms will be worse.”
People are encouraged to take extra steps to help with their wellbeingDr Denton said the most common reason for hospitalisation was a cold.
“For most people, they’re still at home, so you’re not in the situation of just walking around, but you need your clothes, you’re in your pyjamas, you can’t go outside,” he explained.
“So that’s the second reason you might need to be out of bed.”
But there are also cases of people being sent home because they are ill or too exhausted to stay at home.
“When you are not being properly well, you might feel very tired and you might not feel well, so if you’re having a cold or you’re dehydrated, you should stay in bed and get some rest,” Dr Dutton added.
“Then you’ll be in a much better condition to start the new year.”
I would just urge people to take the extra steps.
“People can get tested for the coronivirus to ensure they are safeThe Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) has advised people who have been experiencing severe pain, dizziness, or memory problems to be tested.”
In general, this will be in the next 24 hours,” Dr John Dennison, a spokesperson for the AIHW, said in a statement.”
The AIHHW’s advice is that if you have been suffering from these symptoms for a long period of months or longer, it is probably not a good idea to travel for the rest of the year.
“Dr Dennion said while the AIHS recommends people be tested for COVID-19, it will not take any action if the person has not been tested.
The AIHS also recommends people who live in rural areas and those who have experienced travel restrictions should be checked in to the public health service for testing, and those living in rural communities should consider their options.
People can help with the coronava outbreakDr Denny said there was no point in waiting until the coronas can spread in their community, because they had already made the decision to stay home.
The health system has been overwhelmed”If people feel they’re not ready to go back to the community and are thinking about leaving home, they should consider staying home,” Dr Dave Lewis, a public health nurse, said, according to ABC Radio Perth.”
They need to think through what they are comfortable doing.””
I think the main thing that we can do is make sure that people are in their own homes and have their own beds and have food and drink and a shower and a bedtime routine.
“Mr Lewis said it was important for people to understand they were not alone in the crisis.”
People need to understand that they are not alone and they should not be scared,” he added.
