The most important thing about Covid-19, how much do you know about the disease?

In early 2020, the world was shocked by the SARS-Cov-2 virus, giving rise to the coronavirus pandemic, commonly called Covid-19, which hit the world’s most vulnerable particularly hard, such as older than 70 years, as well as those people who presented some risk pathology (heart, liver, kidney diseases, weak immune system, etc.).

However, thanks to the investigation and collaboration of the public, it seems that in this year, 2022, little by little we have been recovering normality, however, we must not forget that the virus is still there, so we cannot lower the guard, hence we encourage you to collaborate in research against the disease, registering on our DATIUM platform, in which you will obtain rewards with MDCxCoin, each time you respond to our surveys.

As you well know, currently ending the year 2022, China is between a rock and a hard place, surrounded by a new wave of infections that puts the entire world at risk.

Are we facing a cyclical disease?

What is the persistent Covid, or prolonged Covid?

The World Health Organization (OMS), with the consensus of patients, caregivers and international experts, describes this disease as: “the condition that occurs in individuals with a history of probable or confirmed infection by SARS-CoV-2, generally three months after onset, with symptoms lasting at least two months and cannot be explained by an alternative diagnosis.”

Today, the reasons why the virus remains in the body (causing a latent and/or chronic infection) are unknown. What we do know is that the infection generates a delayed inflammatory immune response, which affects our immune function ( The most frequent symptoms are usually asthenia, general malaise, lack of concentration, as well as memory failures); finding patients who, despite not needing hospital admission, maintained the symptoms associated with the disease for periods much longer than average (more than 3 months), while the majority (except for severe cases or vulnerable people) developed symptoms mild or moderate, which after 2 or 3 weeks of infection, improved considerably, and even obtained a full recovery.

What are their symptoms usually?

Conditions caused by Covid-19 act in different and diverse ways in patients (sometimes causing “disability”), with the most common or reported symptoms being tiredness or generalized fatigue, respiratory distress or shortness of breath, persistent cough, chest pain, headache, tingling sensation, taste or smell disturbances, depression or anxiety. However, from the World Health Organization (OMS), a more extensive and exhaustive list of the most frequent symptoms has been developed, such as:

Cardiovascular: heart rate –above all, tachycardia–, blood pressure, varicose veins, thrombi, chest pain –angina pectoris–.
Dermatological: itching, hives, rashes, skin and nail changes, alopecia, perniosis, new allergies.
Gastrointestinal: abdominal pain, discomfort/dyspepsia, reflux, irritable bowel, anorexia, diarrhea, constipation, dysphagia.
• Immunological and autoimmune: new or increased immune responses, new allergies/intolerances to food or drugs.
Musculoskeletal: musculoskeletal and joint pain, muscle spasms, chest pressure, muscle weakness, sarcopenia.
Neurological: cognitive impairment, dizziness, memory loss, mental fog, language disturbances, sensitivity disorders (paresthesias), sleep disorders, headaches, taste and/or smell disturbances, hallucinations, blurred vision, confusional symptoms, paralysis facial, dysautonomia.
• Ear, nose, throat and ophthalmology: facial paralysis, dry eyes, blurred vision, sore throat, hoarseness, tinnitus, vertigo.
• Psychiatric: anxiety, low mood, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder.
• Pulmonary/respiratory: dyspnea, dry cough, sneezing, changes in oxygen saturation.
• Reproductive, genitourinary and endocrine: menstrual disorders, sexual relations, hyperactive urinary bladder function, diabetic debut and thyroid disorders.
• Systemic: fatigue, fever or low-grade fever, weakness, flushing, sweating, exacerbation after exertion and weight loss.

If you consider that you, or a family member or friend, meet the criteria for the diagnosis of the disease, you should go to your primary care physician, in order to be assessed and diagnosed by him.

Likewise, whether you are a patient or a health specialist, we encourage you to share your experience through our DATIUM platform, since the study and observation of the information that you provide us will be of great value for medical research, obtaining for your collaboration MDCxCoins, a cryptocurrency that provides multiple benefits to all our users.

How to prevent the development of persistent Covid?

Despite the advances, there is still no specific treatment for conditions after Covid-19, so the recommendations of the health institutions and your primary care physician must be followed, hygiene being especially relevant (ventilation of spaces, frequent hand washing, the use of a mask if necessary), as well as a good diet (to be mentally strong); and, above all, invest in research, which is necessary to have tools to stop the virus (such as vaccines), hence the importance of the help of all of us, for which we encourage you to collaborate in the study , fight and prevention of infection, through the DATIUM platform, which rewards your collaboration with MDCxCoins, every time you access our surveys.

History of Medicine

Many times, when we talk about medicine, we cannot avoid thinking and associating said word with diseases, general malaise, surgical interventions, medications, etc.; however, from DATIUM, we believe that it is a valuable instrument to protect our health, being our project a tool that manages the information provided by patients and medical specialists, to improve our lifestyle and prevent diseases.

What is Medicine today?

The Royal Spanish Academy (RAE) defines it as the “Set of knowledge and techniques applied to the prediction, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases and, where appropriate, to the rehabilitation of the sequelae that they may produce.”

History of Medicine in a nutshell

When talking about medicine, we have to go back to more than 4000 years B.C., since the first civilizations (among them the Mesopotamian and the Egyptian), based the medical practice on two pillars, on the one hand, the “natural” medicine founded on the use of herbs or natural remedies, and another in “magical-religious” medicine, which used the “Gods” to explain the inexplicable.

One of the main testimonies we have of our “medical history” is found in Mesopotamia, more specifically in the “Code of Hammurabi”, which is a compilation of laws and administrative regulations, which, among others, determine the responsibilities of doctors. in the exercise of his profession (including malpractice); list of healing plants, as well as minerals and substances of animal origin; as well as the belief that the disease was a divine punishment, imposed by the demons, so that any God could cause or heal the disease through his direct intervention (or, abandon him to his fate), as well as with the mediation of sorcerers or shamans (in charge of performing exorcisms, prayers and ritual offerings).

Who was Hippocrates and his importance in Medicine

Today, we usually refer to Hippocrates as the father of Medicine and Ethics; since he was able to dissociate himself from the “doctor-priest” stigma that prevailed at the time, developing a system based on the observation and study of the patient, in which his senses and his reason prevailed as the only diagnostic instruments.

His thesis was that the diseases were the consequence of eating habits, alcohol abuse, age, gender or work of the patient (among others), so after conducting a study of the symptoms, plus the lifestyle of it, he tried to find a cause-effect of the disease that afflicted the person, starting (for the first time) what we know today as scientific medicine.

Hippocrates had a strong belief in medicine, and he was not so concerned about the rights of doctors, rather, his concern was about their duties, so this idea led him to develop an oath of medical ethics, which Today we know it as the “Hippocratic Oath” or “Hippocratic Oath”. This oath is a commitment that doctors take when they begin to practice medicine.

Datium and modern medicine

Currently, great advances have been made in modern medicine, in some cases eradicating some diseases, as well as treating others that until recently were thought to be incurable. These achievements have been possible thanks to the study and diagnosis resources that we have; as well as the awareness of people, who bet (every day more) for a healthier and healthier lifestyle.

At DATIUM, we are committed to preventive medicine, so your collaboration will favor the study, diagnosis and treatment of diseases, which will help improve our quality of life.
It is worth noting our star service, MDCx, a cryptocurrency that will grant users of the platform multiple benefits. To receive your first MDCx it will be necessary to register on the Datium platform and fill out different surveys. We invite you to continue browsing our platform and learn more about our project.
The history of medicine advances at steps impossible to reach with the naked eye. It is, thanks to technology, how we manage to keep ourselves, day by day, updated on all the discoveries and advances that human society is discovering thanks to its scientists and specialized doctors. Datium, with its automated information system, has brought the citizen one step closer to the most advanced medical systems, rewarding both the user and the doctor for sharing the information.
