The CBR Studio resumed its programming this year of 2020 on February 6, bringing an important theme for the entire population: the Coronavirus. The debate was moderated by doctors Hilton Leão and Rogério Caldana, members of the board of the College, who received doctors Celso Granato, an infectologist, and Dante Escuissato, a radiologist, as guests of the evening.
In an important service to the population, the CBR Studio was also broadcast live on Facebook, in addition to the Workplace. Doctors explained the difference between Coronavirus and infections already known.
Dr. Celso started the debate by contextualizing the environment in which the Coronavirus appeared and how the medical community is alert to the arrival of the virus in Brazil. “Most likely he will arrive in Brazil, I would be amazed if he did not arrive, since we have a very strong commercial relationship with China. It will arrive, as H1N1 arrived, but the speed of knowledge is being amazing, we have already talked about vaccines and treatments. The longer it takes to arrive, the better, as we will have more information, more resources for when we arrive to have an established treatment ”, he says.
Dr. Dante brought important reflections from the radiological point of view, alerting above all to “comparing with other epidemics, until the H1N1 pandemic, the image aspect was very similar, it had many similarities. Viral infections, analyzing the patient in isolation, are very similar to bacterial pneumonias. That is, in isolation, without a clinical context, what you will see will be nonspecific findings ”, he warns.
