“The top-down departments of the UK are getting busier as the pressure from the coronavirus increases.
“We are seeing more and more patients needing ventilators, which requires specialized input and support from us in the accident and emergency department.
“We are very grateful to those who maintain a social distance, who stay at home, because in the end, this is what will relieve us on the front line and allow us to keep as many people safe and the rate of lowest possible mortality.
“We have divided the department into sections, almost military in style, keeping patients who may be infected away from those who do not have symptoms of coronavirus. “
What It Really Looks Like: The Love Island star explained what it looks like on the ground and explained the TWO types of coronavirus tests as well as the “barriers” to their deployment across the UK.
Despite the frightening situation, Dr. Alex assured his supporters that the morale on the front lines was good, saying, “I just wanted to give you an overview of what’s going on right now.

The couple discussed how it was usually members of “vulnerable groups” who fought hardest to fight COVID-19.
They urged those with “minor” symptoms to stay at home, increase fluids and self-medicate with paracetamol, unless they deteriorate and require medical attention, in which case they should call 111.
At home, after his shift, Dr. Alex discussed coronavirus testing: “There are really two types that we widely divide. There are antigen tests against antibody tests.
“The antigen test is basically: is there currently a virus in your body? And we use swabs to do this.
In a good mood: Despite the frightening situation, Dr Alex assured his supporters that morale on the front lines was good and that they had the necessary protective equipment
“We take swabs from the nose or throat, we send them to a laboratory,” where Dr. Alex explained that they were then tested by experts.
“Antibody testing is where we usually do a finger prick test or we take a blood sample, and we look for antibodies against this virus – either IGG or IGM, the two types of antibodies that we usually look for in these tests. “
The Love Island star said the two tests were done to find out, “Do you have it” right now “? Yes or no?
‘And: did you have it’ at some point ‘? Yes or no, and are you currently immune to it?

Dr. Alex went on to explain why there is an “obstacle” to large-scale testing in the UK, while other countries around the world test hundreds of thousands of people daily.
He said, “Part of the reason is: many of these countries are ahead of us – they had cases much earlier. And in some cases, like in South Korea, they have been very quick to act.
“Everyone around the world has tried to buy the components and parts for these test kits. Because we are a little later, we are in a very different market to buy these pieces of equipment. “

Dr. Alex explained that three new test laboratory checkpoints have been put in place to strengthen NHS front-line staff for antigen testing, which “is starting to see deployment of this now.”
In terms of antibody testing, the Love Islander said it will take longer because the tests must be “reliable and accurate”, but they hope to have 3.5 million as soon as possible.
“It will obviously be very important and very useful in the foreground: knowing that you have it and that you are hopefully immune to the coronavirus is very, very important for NHS workers and staff. “
Dr. Alex has confirmed that people will not be able to purchase the tests privately, but will be affected by public health and the NHS where they are needed at that time.
A warning appeared on the screen, which reads: “There are tests available online, often unregulated and not approved by the appropriate regulatory body, so be very careful before buying!
He explained that the deployment of antibody tests will start with: “Front line staff, those who are symptomatic in the community, those who are asymptomatic as well. “
“Do I think it [the tests] will be available for purchase in the future? Potentially even abroad? Probably… But I don’t think it will be soon, in the UK at least, it will be very controlled, so that the tests take place in the right places at the right time.

Dr. Alex’s YouTube video comes after Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged all doctors or nurses who have resigned or retired in the past three years to return to help fight COVID-19.
NHS officials have not put a figure on how many former doctors and nurses they should bring back, but Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he hoped to “get as many of them as possible” .
The chief medical officer, Professor Chris Whitty, had previously warned that London hospitals would soon come under heavy pressure.
He said measures such as social isolation and school closings to “reduce the peak” of cases would take time to take effect.
