Posted October 02, 2018 08:33:06Carla Carlara, an ophthalmologist at the Children’s Ophthalmic Hospital of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, has seen thousands of children with the deadly virus and her team is doing everything they can to save them.
She told Liguori Filippo that children with SARS-CoV-2 should be kept at home for four weeks to help them get used to the new virus.
“If it is really serious, we have to give them two months of isolation,” she said.
“I think they should stay for that.”
Carla said she is concerned that children will have more severe infections if they stay at home.
“I think we should be taking precautions, but it will be very difficult,” she told Ligorotti.
“We can’t wait.
We have to act now, because we have a lot of people out there who are ill and they need help.”
It’s not that simple, and it’s going to be hard, but we have the resources to do it.
“The disease affects the eye and can cause blindness, but is usually milder than the more serious pneumonia and is usually confined to the eyes.SARS-C is spread through coughing, sneezing and contact with blood.
Symptoms include a fever, cough and redness and swelling of the eyes, usually accompanied by severe headaches.
