Impact of the COVID-19 Lockdown on Ophthalmological Assistance in the Emergency Department at a Spanish Primary Level Hospital

CONCLUSIONS: Most diagnostic clusters showed a similar decrease. Clusters that included vision-threating conditions (retina, neuro-ophthalmology, and uveitis) remained mostly stable. During the COVID-19 lockdown, the diagnosis of adenoviral conjunctivitis decreased nearly 10 times. This fact may represent a decrease in the transmission of these infections.PMID:34840824 | PMC:PMC8616649 | DOI:10.1155/2021/8023361

" If you don't like the ruling you'll likely say it's political, if you do like it you'll probably say that it's just sound jurisprudence. However, a partisan court is a different matter. It bases its ruling not on a consistent application of a legal ...
