One in 10 babies is born prematurely, that is, before the 37th week of pregnancy. In Poland, that's about 26,000 premature babies a year. They are completely defenseless as they lie in incubators connected to monitoring equipment. And so tiny. Some fit in the palm of your hand and weigh as much as a teddy bear. Fortunately, thanks to huge advances in neonatology, it is possible to save them. Yesterday, all premature babies - tiny, small and quite grown-up - celebrated their holiday.
Experts discussed what we are left with after COVID, how it has changed our lives and affected public health. They also considered what to do and how to do it in case of future pandemics.
