‘150,000 heart patients lack proper care due to coronal crisis’

NRC reports this on the basis of a report drawn up by the professional association in collaboration with research agency Gupta Strategists.

100,000 years of life lost

Canceling and postponing cardiological care leads to between 65,000 and 100,000 years of life lost, the NVVC warns. That number is solely based on the past wave of corona infections that have flooded hospitals in the past two months.

If that happens again – the so-called second wave – then the drama for heart patients becomes even worse. The cardiologists warn that in that case not all regular care can be put on the back burner.

Two causes

The health damage for heart patients and other patients has two causes: on the one hand, patients with non-acute complaints had nowhere to go because hospitals refused them, on the other hand, many patients also avoided care themselves. Even if they had all the symptoms of a heart attack, some people still hesitated to call the doctor.

These problems did not only apply to cardiology, but everywhere in healthcare. Likewise, the population screenings for various cancers were halted for almost two months.
