VMA Chief: "I hope we won't need it"
The head of the Military Medical Academy, Professor Miroslav Vukosavljević, says that the institution was on duty during the New Year's Eve, which passed relatively peacefully.
194 examinations were performed in the emergency center, four emergency operations - these are stab wounds with cold steel, unlike in previous years when injuries caused by firecrackers and other pyrotechnic devices dominated.
According to him, there is a slight jump in the emergency of people with a positive finding the next day. The patients came with mild stomach problems, with gout, but a PCR test was done and it was discovered that they were COVID positive, Vukosavljevic explained to RTS.
Speaking about the COVID system, Vukosavljevic points out that they could not get out of the COVID regime due to non-compliance with epidemiological measures, and due to the application and non-application of vaccination on a larger scale, and the COVID hospital in Karaburma worked non-stop. It accommodates 67 patients, eight are in intensive care, and one patient has been intubated.
"We have vacancies, I hope it will not be needed, following what is happening in the world, the new strain of omicron should not give a larger number of hospitalizations," says Professor Vukosavljevic.
The number of hospitalized is falling compared to a month ago, the doctor added.
