"The number of people receiving life-saving treatment due to Covid-19 has more than doubled", said Dr. Ahmed Mohammed, Acting Chairman of HMC’s Intensive Care Units.
In comparison, there are more people in intensive care units now than at the peak of the first wave.
“Since the middle of March, the number of people receiving life-saving medical treatment in our intensive care units has more than doubled and we now have over 280 people with COVID-19 in intensive care. For further clarification, at the peak of the first wave in May 2020, we had around 220 patients in intensive care. It is clear that people are becoming sicker and experiencing more severe symptoms in this second wave of the virus,” the senior health official said.
"The new strain of Covid-19 virus coming from the United Kingdom is more transmissible compared to the original strain of the virus, and this means that this strain spreads between individuals more easily, and the most worrying thing is that clinical evidence is now emerging.", Dr. Ahmed Al-Mohammed added.
