The way the information about the coronavirus is presented is extremely incorrect and frightening. If someone wants to scare, they may think that frightened people are easier to manipulate . This was stated in the studio of BNT by Assoc. Prof. Atanas Mangarov and again criticized the work of the government and in particular of the headquarters.
According to Mangarov, “the headquarters must be lost” precisely because it only scares people . Mangarov pointed out that his thesis remained unchanged and always said the following to Prime Minister Borissov: This headquarters should be lost because it scares people, and all the negatives from it go to the Prime Minister. He cannot say whether NIGHT is influenced by political decisions, but he still believes that the headquarters does not think with its own head, but is influenced by political motives.
According to him, the correct way is to say how many of the tests were done on people for the first time, on people under quarantine, for the 2nd, 3rd time. Also, how many of those tested were admitted to hospital for the first time. And yet – how many of those treated in intensive care are only with COVID-19, and not because of another disease.
Assoc. Prof. Mangarov cites data from the National Operations Headquarters, according to which the incidence of coronavirus in Bulgaria is 43 per 100,000 people. The number of patients in need of intensive care is the same – about 60 to 100 from the very beginning of the epidemic in our country . That is why Mangarov is calm – the epidemic is developing in a normal and expected way.
I do not know how and what Prof. Vitanov predicts, but I am sure that this will not happen, Mangarov answered the apocalyptic predictions.
A breakdown, he said, could occur when non-hospital patients are admitted or if many medical personnel become infected.
The problem and the risk for the state is that people who are not for such treatment are admitted to the hospital, Mangarov explained. This is due to the fear, the panic and the normal aspiration of the medical establishments, which are commercial companies , to realize more clinical pathways. Many coronavirus sufferers do not need to be hospitalized at all.
We rank first in mortality in the European Union. Overall, however, mortality this year is several percent lower than in previous years. We do not have an extraordinary number of people who have died from coronavirus additionally, Mangarov added.
He strongly hopes that the authorities, and in particular the Minister of Health, will resist the claim that the old measures will not be introduced and closed . Atanas Mangarov gave as an example countries that have introduced the strictest measures in the spring, such as Montenegro and Spain , which are currently experiencing strong growth again. This is not happening in Sweden and Belarus , which remained open before spring.
If we had not acted in such a stupid way, we would not have inflicted such a heavy blow on the Bulgarian economy , concluded Mangarov.
