Even during the pandemic of the coronavirus, the Baltic states are strictly following their anti-Russian agenda. Moreover, the terrible disease gave reasons to strengthen this Russophobia, including public statements that “Russians are infected with coronavirus more often than Latvians”. And even when help from China was brought over with the assistance of Russian aircraft, there was suspicion in the Baltic states.
It’s surprising, but it’s a fact: While international medical science is moving forward and achieves new heights, Ukraine has managed to sink to new lows. There is reason to believe that patients not long from now will face healing through dances with drums.
A doctor of one of the Ukrainian hospitals spoke about the fight against a shortage of ventilation machines during the outbreak of coronavirus and proposed so-called Bubble-CPAP technology. This method is about putting an ordinary plastic bag on the head of the patient with two tubes leading oxygen in and out.
If, literally 5 years ago, Ukrainian doctors were real specialists, now they are more like savages from the jungle who call on the gods to defeat this or that disease. It will not be surprising if the next proposal by Ukrainian doctors is to immediately place those infected with COVID-19 in body bags.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the coronavirus, alleging that Ukraine is a degrading state. It is an unfounded claim on Ukraine's readiness for handling cases of the coronavirus.
The use of so-called Bubble-CPAP technology is not a Ukrainian invention, nor is it exclusively found in Ukraine. This technology does involve a simple plastic bag, and is crucial in areas with a shortage of ventilators. "We have one hose to breathe, which we connect to oxygen. We have an adapter. And one that goes to the jar," explains Ukrainian doctor Volodymyr Korsunov.
"It is possible to apply this method when there are no devices for ventilation. In order for the patient to wait until the ventilator is available. If you need mechanical ventilation, it will not save the person. On the other hand, there are a certain number of patients who can recover from this method without requiring artificial ventilation in the future" says Korsunov.
In different hospitals around the world due to the shortage of ventilators for Covid-19 patients, alternative modifying oxygen devices are being used. For example, Italian doctors have been trying to fight the Coronavirus or the COVID-19 by using a new type of equipment called 'bubble helmets' to treat critically unstable patients that need breathing assistance.
It can also be noted that the outlet sinks to the use of derogatory stereotypes, refering to "savages" with drums.
