«Spring will come and the flowers bloom themselves»

4/30/2020

The theme of our group “Spring will come and the flowers bloom themselves” is directly related to the fact that in the process of teaching practice the most educated and kind-hearted Kazakh girls gathered in our group. This proverb helped us to reveal the essence of our open lesson and we devote this lesson to the onset of the most beautiful and brightest holiday brought in - the day of March 8! The purpose of the event is to nurture the spiritual and moral qualities of students, respectful attitude to women and girls. Activization of forms of cultural leisure for students and the formation of friendship and mutual assistance in the team of the study group. Mother's love is the purest and most true love that exists in this world. Love is manifested in the care, affection of the mother for her child. This is love that requires virtually no bestowal. Mom will not find herself another child if her own does not love her. Although not loving mom is very difficult. This happens only in rare cases. Mom, even in the most terrible quarrel, will worry about her child. It is important for a woman to experience such feelings at least once. Mother's love has no boundaries and it is very difficult to describe in words. For teaching practice, we specially prepared the 15th cabinet of botany, decorated with balloons and various posters. According to the script, poems were read, songs were sung and wishes expressed. Students helped out gifts that they prepared for each other. There were 3-year students and 1-year undergraduates at the open lesson. And also a short film "The Road to Mother" from the famous domestic director Akan Satayev was shown. The plot of "The Road to Mother" was based on the story of the power of maternal love, which helped the hero of the film cope with the trials of fate. The main character of the picture demonstrates incredible fortitude, courage, patriotism and unprecedented dedication. Even before the fear of death, the hero of the film does not lose hope of reuniting with his own person - his mother.

Some lessons from the new coronavirus pandemic

4/17/2020

Analysis of mortality statistics from COVID-19 in the 15 most affected countries of the world showed that the average global mortality rate for coronavirus infection on April 13, 2020 was 6.2% of 1,846,963 officially registered patients. This death rate is tens or hundreds of times higher than the death rate from various types of known flu virus strains, which makes it completely incorrect to compare these infections. A new coronavirus pandemic has reached a particularly large scale in the far, far from the center of infection in China, the ocean expanses of the United States, where out of 550 thousand people are infected. 22,300 patients died, and the peak of the epidemic is still ahead.

But if in the United States the death rate was lower than the global average and was equal to 4%, in some European countries, the death rate exceeded 10%: 12.7% in Italy, 12.14% in Belgium, more than 10% in Spain, Holland, France. A much lower death rate was observed on April 13 in Germany, where out of 127,854 cases, 3,022 people died (2.36%), and in Austria out of 13,945 cases, 350 people died (2.5%).

What explains this significant difference in mortality among patients with new coronavirus pneumonia from the listed countries? All the above-mentioned countries belong to the group of highly developed economically states. But the success of the state's medical service in fighting the pandemic is determined by many factors, and the economic factor is only one among others. A similar pandemic, as well as another large-scale test (war. natural disaster, etc.), this is an exam for any state, any nation, and every citizen. The outcome of a pandemic is determined not only by the biological characteristics of the pathogen (virulence, contagiousness, features of the incubation period, resistance to external influences, including pharmacological drugs, etc.) and the resistance of the human body, but also by the level of health organization in the state, the qualifications of medical personnel, the number and equipment of medical institutions with equipment and Pharmacopoeia, the attitude of the state to health care. And, of course, the success of the fight against an epidemic of this scale also depends on the education, responsibility, solidarity, solidarity and humanism of citizens, their trust, competence and fairness of the authorities...

Look at what countries that are currently coping better with the pandemic have in common. If you look at Finland, Iceland, Denmark, New Zealand, and other countries with low rates of death from COVID-19, the answers may be very different. You can refer to the fact that these are small countries, but, for example, Germany with its 83 million population is difficult to call small, or small island states like Iceland with 1,720 infected and 8 deaths (0.5%) per 350 thousand population, or New Zealand with 1,386 infected and 9 deaths per 4. 900 thousand population. But the UK is also an island, and the situation there is quite deplorable with 10,629 deaths out of 85,206 cases (8.3% mortality). In South Korea, which is a peninsula, but is also actually an island, because of the tightly closed border with North Korea, 214 out of 10,512 patients died (2%). The country has taken extraordinary measures to mass test the population for infection, strict quarantine and high-tech and professional treatment.

Germany is a country with an exceptionally hard-working and disciplined population, a highly developed real economy, education and science, great cultural traditions and well-equipped research and medical institutions. A significant role in the mobilization of the state against the pandemic was played by the government led by Chancellor Angela Merkel, who in early March warned her compatriots about the drama of the situation: at least 70% of the population will get sick with the coronavirus, she said, and urged them to take this threat as seriously as possible. The same disciplined, educated and accustomed to life in conditions of permanent danger, the people of Israel have a record low mortality rate of 0.9% of 11,145 patients.

Today, April 15, the number of cases of coronavirus pneumonia is approaching two million in the world, and all countries are trying to minimize losses from this pandemic. But among the many factors that determine the measure of success in this confrontation, the first place, according to the world's leading experts, is not so much the early detection of infected people, not their treatment by highly qualified medical personnel using the most modern technologies, equipment and Pharmacopoeia, but physical isolation, a large-scale effective system of quarantine measures among the population. Among those who violate the quarantine, there are many young people who believe that the elderly are seriously ill and dying.

Yes, it is true that about eighty percent of the world's deaths occur in this age group [according to national reports from many countries]. Most often, this is explained by chronic diseases and a weakened respiratory system, and this is true. However, young people also get sick, although not so hard and much less often with a fatal outcome. But currently, at the Sklifosovsky Institute and the Kommunarke infectious diseases hospital in Moscow, about 40% of those seriously ill with community-acquired pneumonia are under 45 years of age. Young people are less likely to die, but young people also suffer from lungs, since after discharge, for a long time due to fibrosis of the pulmonary parenchyma, the functional capabilities of the respiratory system and the body as a whole are significantly reduced. Do not forget that infected young people are a source of infection for relatives and friends, as well as for everyone around them.
