Minister of Health Calls for No Self-Medication
Minister Abdikarimov said at a briefing on Monday that if the coronavirus is detected, it will not be possible to treat the virus using self-medications.
“They use self-medication at home. They come only in critical condition. Three people I mentioned were in the hospital for only one day. They died of a serious illness. Diabetes, hypertension, and chronic diseases are very dangerous for anyone. Do not self-medicate, and seek medical attention as soon as the first symptoms appear. This is because the right treatment must be prescribed by a doctor.”
Elsewhere, the coronavirus pandemic in Europe has begun to slow down. The European Union has moved to ease quarantine measures. However, the number of infected people in Germany has risen again.
