《万一确诊怎么办?听听中、西医怎么说!》讲座会

为了让民众更了解中、西医对新冠病毒的治疗方案,波德申中华中学于5月22日(星期六)晚上8时举办了一场由张秀强中医师以及陆之淇医生主讲的线上讲座会,并同步直播到各校的面子书网页。此讲座的主题为《万一确诊怎么办?听听中、西医怎么说!》,由蔡常思副校长主持。该讲座开放给师生,家长及各社会人士参与。
在讲座开始之际,张中医师认为不管是中医还是西医都各有千秋,应以疾病为基础来决定相对有效的治疗方案,而陆医生则表示,应以中医为主,西医为辅助或者是中西医结合来医治新冠病患者。陆之淇医师表示,无论使用什么治疗方式,中、西医的目标都是要把病人治好,重给人们一副健康的体魄。
接着,张秀强中医师指出新冠病毒具有着中医瘟疫的致病特点,例如:拥有非常强的传染性、可通过空气与接触传染以及7-14天左右的潜伏期等等。张中医师解释,人类在免疫系统下降时感染上新冠病毒的几率极高。张中医师透露,新冠病毒在中医分为轻型,普通型,重型和危重型。轻型冠状病毒的治疗方案主要是以出汗为目的。处于普通型的冠病患者会有发烧,干咳,肌肉疼痛等症状。其治疗方案则是以祛除人体内的寒凉湿气为主要目的。至于重型和危重型的患者都会被送到医院接受治疗。
此外,张中医师也为民众解开了关于连花清瘟颗粒的疑惑。虽然连花清瘟颗粒能使轻型和普通型的新冠病毒基因转化成阴性,但是这种药还未经过马来西亚卫生局的注册。对此,如果民众没有患上任何疾病,张中医师并不鼓励民众服用该药。张中医师建议民众可以练六级拳和八段锦来增强抵抗力,预防新冠病毒。尽管如此,张中医师坦言,至今为止,中医在马来西亚还是不被允许治疗新冠病毒患者。
陆之淇医生表示,随着新冠病毒一直在不断地变异,患者所出现的症状也在持续不断地变化。陆医生透露,当患者进入医院接受治疗时,医生会询问该患者近期所接触过的人,并要求密切接触者就地隔离,以切断感染链。再者,前线医护人员会为患者进行一系列的身体检查。除此之外,医生会根据患者所出现的症状把患者分为无症状、轻症、中度、重度以及重症。陆医生陈述,医院会根据患者的病情来采取最好的治疗方案。
陆医生劝民众多给予冠病患者精神上的支持,不要排斥患者,帮助他们能够更快地重新融入社交生活。陆医生表示,即使患者出院了,他们仍会在6-8个星期内面临呼吸困难,头痛等问题。为了预防新冠病毒,陆医生也鼓励人民养成不握手,不拥抱,不触摸的习惯。陆医生也劝告居家隔离的患者必须严格遵守标准作业程序,不要再把病毒传染给他人。

变变变病毒72变!你我如何应变?

现今,新冠病毒肆虐全球,并随着日子的增长愈变严重。因此,在5月19日(星期三),波德申中华中学的校园资讯举办了一场主题为“变变变病毒72变!你我如何应变?”的线上讲座会。此讲座会于晚上8时在ZOOM平台准时开始。这场讲座会的对象包括校长、主任、老师、家长以及学生。讲座会的主持人是蔡常思副校长,而主讲人则是陆之淇医生及徐慧仪副教授。陆之淇医生是一名拥有26年职业经验的全科医生,也是波德申中华中学1987年的毕业生而徐慧仪副教授是一名病毒学博士和UPM讲师。
根据陆医生及徐副教授,新冠病毒繁殖得非常快,每18小时就会繁殖一轮,一轮就会繁殖上百万个病毒,甚至会随机变异。随着疫情逐渐变得严峻,人们也需要善于应变这突如其来的状况。为了减低病毒扩散的风险,徐慧仪副教授指出人们应该严守SOP,保护好自己和他人。她强调,要预防病毒就要学习如何与病毒共存,其中包括了增加先天性免疫。先天性免疫是个非特异性防御机制,也是人体对外侵者的第一道防护墙。先天性免疫包括了结构性屏障也就是在呼吸道黏膜,化学性屏障会导致胃酸和免疫力细胞也就是白细胞。黏膜抗体是第一线抗病毒的特别抗体,主要在呼吸道黏膜,口腔黏膜和眼泪。自然杀伤细胞也是属于先天性免疫细胞之一,只要细胞被感染他就会去消灭,这样病毒就无法繁殖。
接下来,徐慧仪副教授指出, 新冠肺炎可能会继续存在, 也将成为一种区域性的流行疾病。她表示,预防疾病要从良好生活开始。我们要有充足的睡眠,多做运动,吃蔬菜水果,喝充足的水和不吸烟及不喝酒。陆之淇医生表示如今有关新冠肺炎的信息铺天盖地,不管是新闻或者是网络上,我们应该多去调查清楚而不是随意相信。 同时,陆医生表示,Ro值是个基本传染数,也就代表一名感染者会把病毒传给其他人的平均数。Ro的数子越大代表着流行病的控制越难。就如于2002年蔓延到世界各地的非典病毒(SARS),新冠病毒的传染方式即是飞沫和人体接触。
除此之外,她表示确诊数据越来越多,人类也必须有所反思。由于确诊人数逐日增加,加护病房的床位无法应付患者,所以有一些人会埋怨自己被分派到建筑胶老旧的医院。她透露,随着全球的确诊病例和死亡病例不断地在创新高,越来越多人也意识到无情的新冠病毒夺走的无数性命。此外, 陆之淇医生表示疫情的出现改变了人类原本的生活。现今,人们出门都要穿上口罩,携带消毒液和手机,并在手机里下载“Mysejahtera”以进行出入登记。
陆之淇医生在讲座中也分享了许多有助于阻止疫情扩散的方法。她强调,人们的生活习惯必须保持不握手、不拥抱以及不触摸。我们也必须选择尺寸合适的口罩,并要紧贴面部遮住口鼻下巴。她坦言,我们绝对不可以与他人共享私人物品,执行居家隔离,严守SOP以及减少外出。当然,均衡的饮食习惯也扮演着十分重要的角色。我们必须多摄取蛋白质和碳水化合物,并且时刻保持良好的心态。我们也必须以规划出行的方式出门,并要有明确的目标且不拖沓。她指出,出门采购日常用品时,我们可以做一个购物清单,以减低在外接触的时间。其次,人们可以使用电子购物模式,不使用现金而选择电子钱包付钱。回到家之后,我们也必须执行“进门三部曲”,也就是要先脱口罩和脱鞋,随后全身消毒并洗头、洗澡和洗衣服。
除了接种疫苗和严守SOP,我们还可以采取以下的行动来保护自己和身边的人。首先,如果怀疑自己确诊新冠肺炎,我们必须先自我隔离,再去医院进行检测。感染新冠病毒后会有的症状包括发烧、干咳、喉咙痛等,甚至是没有症状。如担忧疫苗会造成副作用,就必须向医生叙述过敏情况。如今,许多人也因疫情而感到焦虑。因此,我们应该面对自己的情绪并接纳它。

MSIA members donate over RM2mil to help needy students in online education

3

JUST slightly over a month after being officially launched on April 6, the Malaysia Semiconductor Industry Association (MSIA) has achieved its target of getting 1,500 computers to donate them to the Penang E-Learning Computer Programme.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow and state executive councillor Chong Eng, who is in charge of the Penang E-Learning Computer Programme, thanked MSIA for its support in raising funds from its members to make the programme a success.

A total sponsorship of RM2,020,560 was collected from 28 companies, enabling 1,562 laptops to be bought for needy students for their online education. The highest donor was Western Digital with a sponsorship of RM325,000.

“The state government is indeed very grateful to have strategic partners from the industry, non-governmental organisations, individuals and other parties who are always committed to helping the state government while creating an e-learning and e-teaching atmosphere that is more conducive to the students and teachers.

“The state government believes that with this collaboration, Penang is able to remain competitive and realise its Penang2030 vision to be ‘A Family-Focused Green and Smart State that Inspires the Nation’,” Chow said in his speech at the mock cheque presentation ceremony.

Since the programme began in May last year, he said a total of 1,742 computers have been distributed to students with 945 given away free and the remaining 797 given as loans.

In addition, a total of 279 smartphones were also handed over to the needy students.

Chow also raised a question on the status of providing 150,000 laptops to B40 students for home teaching and learning (PdPR) following the Covid-19 pandemic as announced by the Federal Government under the 2021 Budget.

He also wanted to know the number of laptops that have been distributed so far with a breakdown for each state as well as the costs involved.

Chong Eng said for more students to benefit from the programme, the state government has decided to continue with the programme this year by introducing a new scheme, called the computer leasing scheme.

“Under this computer leasing scheme, there are two initiatives introduced, namely ‘Lease to Use’ and ‘Lease to Own’,” Chong Eng said in her speech.

“At a time when the spread of Covid-19 is increasing and having an impact on the education sector, almost all schools have had to close to curb its transmission.

“To help students whose parents could not afford to provide them with computers or smartphones, the Penang government is introducing this ‘Lease to Use’ scheme.

“Thirty-six percent of all students in Malaysia do not have online learning devices.”

Under the ‘Lease to Use’ scheme, she said a total of 100 used laptops (refurbished laptops) would be given a lease loan for six months with a payment of RM1 per day or RM30 per month. Chong Eng said the state government would bear full responsibility for this initiative.

Under the ‘Lease to Own’ scheme, she said the lease term would be for three years and all leased laptops are new.

“After the lease period, the new computer will become the property of the school and this computer can be loaned to other students in need,” Chong Eng explained.

“This initiative is a collaboration between the state government and MSIA where MSIA will provide support in fundraising from its members and the state government will identify schools that need computers for e-learning.”

She added that in order for the laptops to be distributed fairly, there were certain criteria and priority would be given to those from the B40 group and single parent families.

MSIA chairman Datuk Seri Wong Siew Hai thanked the state government for establishing the programme and giving MSIA the opportunity to collaborate with them.

“Online classes are becoming more prevalent and the new norm. Unfortunately, many underprivileged and B40 children have not been able to study online. This has caused them to fall far behind due to the digital divide,” Wong said.

“Most of our members felt that how can we not do something for the schools, especially in technology. We think very strongly that we got to do something and that is how this come together.

“We told our members that any contribution is fine; nothing is too small because every single sponsorship will impact every student. So, MSIA would like to thank all sponsors for making this programme a success.

“MSIA is honoured to be part of this project and remains committed to ensuring that the less privileged students are not left behind in digital education. We believe in digital education for all.”

The applications for the Penang E-Learning Computer Programme for this year have been extended to all schools in Penang.

The application period is open from May 7 until May 31. The link to apply is https://elearning.digitalpenang.my/

Among those present at the mock cheque handing ceremony were assemblymen Lim Siew Khim (Sungai Pinang), Jason Hng Mooi Lye (Jawi) and M. Satees (Bagan), Bayan Baru MP Sim Tze Tzin, Bukit Mertajam MP Steven Sim, Penang E-Learning Computer Programme vice-chairman Dr Ngoo Seong Boon, and the sponsors’ representatives.
