We are in the second week since the state of alarm was declared in Spain. We have not yet reached the moment of maximum number of infected, which the members of the government cabinet of crisis call “the peak”, at which point it seems to be, the figures of newly infected will gradually decrease.
We are living in a situation that no living human being has had to face before and that directly affects our way of living by radically altering it.
Since the beginning of this crisis, I have been trying to access information, as reliable as possible and by the way, let me take the opportunity to share with you a valuable gift that I have received.
A few days ago a friend of mine, a doctor in pharmacy who has worked for years at the Gómez Hulla hospital, provided me with the link to access a digital tool: Epidemix Coronavirus.
When you access it you will find the results of a rigorous work of data collection supported by hospitals, a medical association, research centers, etc. Carried out by a large group of professionals led by Dr. Jordi Serrano Pons.
They have developed a digital tool where all the proven recommendations on COVID-19 are integrated, for healthcare providers and also for citizens, by experts of recognized prestige in the healthcare field, denying hoaxes, providing proven data and recommendations.
It is something that I sincerely thank him because I firmly believe that being able to access information that comes directly from healthcare professionals, without political, audience or financial interests in between, is priceless.
Now, after the gift, let me pick up the thread, among all the information I read and the process, there has been something that has caught my attention, I am talking about two statistical curve models developed with the data provided by the performance of the governments of China, Russia , Japan, South Korea, Iran, Italy, Spain, etc.
When the data is entered and the mathematical calculations are performed, two very different types of curves appear, one is the one that arises from the measures that have been taken in countries such as China, Russia, Japan or South Korea, where forceful action has been taken since the first moment, this curve shows that the isolation time and the duration of the pandemic act more quickly.
However, something essential is achieved, the health system is not overwhelmed, it does not collapse and it is possible to reduce the number of those affected who die.
The other curve is the one that corresponds to countries, like Spain, where no containment measures have been taken from the outset, this curve tells us that the duration of the pandemic is shorter.
But it has a major drawback, shortly after starting there is an exponential growth in the number of those affected, this leads to the collapse of the health system and a much higher number of deaths, as we have already seen in Italy.
I can’t help but think that going one step ahead and being prepared to act when necessary allows us to face any task or challenge with more possibilities of success and less damage.
And this is also the case in daily life, in the management of our economy, that is why we at SEL-DEK believe that it is better to act, to have information that allows us to make reasoned decisions that serve us to live better instead of leaving it to the last moment and find ourselves in a situation that forces us to act, because in this way we will avoid collapse, sink, ruin ourselves.
In SEL-DEK we work helping other people so that they can live more peacefully, they can give their children the best education, in short, so that with our support they can live a little better every day.
We are independent professionals and we work every day with a goal, to improve the economic situation of the people who ask us for help.
