the Situation with coronavirus in Moscow remains tense. The daily number of detected cases is still high and stable, and the peak has not yet passed. The total number of cases in the capital exceeds 11.5 thousand people – more than anywhere else in Russia, the number of deaths approaching one hundred.
Assessing the situation, the operational headquarters for the fight against the spread of coronavirus predicts that despite the inclusion of a growing number of state, Federal and commercial clinics in the next two to three weeks a possible shortage of beds in disused hospitals, according to the website of the Department of health of Moscow.
In this regard, another 24 hospitals will be redeveloped in the next ten days for the treatment of patients with suspected coronavirus infection. A Ministry of health, we will remind, recommended that doctors suspect COVID-19 in all cases of SARS, as the symptoms are very similar, and the treatment of SARS-CoV-2 to start as soon as possible to prevent severe disease.
So, in total, the hospitals of the Department of health of Moscow will be deployed at about 21 thousand beds for patients with coronavirus infection. Offices and professionals of these hospitals provide highly specialized care, for example, the profile of microsurgery, will be temporarily transferred to other hospitals and will continue to accept patients.
the Patients who need emergency care will be sent to 12 hospitals: the clinical hospital named. V. V. Veresayev, GKB them. A. K. Eramishantsev, GKB them. F. I. Inozemtsev, GKB them. V. M. Buyanova, GKB them. S. S. Yudin, GKB im V. V. Vinogradova, GKB them. L. A. Vorohoba, GKB them. M. P. Konchalovsky, research Institute. N. In.Sklifosovsky clinical hospital N1 them. N. And. Pirogov them. S. P. Botkin GKB them. I. V. Davydovskiy.
Now in Moscow for patients with coronavirus has 29 hospitals in the Federal, municipal and private clinics. As at 13 April all over Rossiand deployed only about 40 thousand beds in hospitals to treat coronavirus patients. Only by the end of April the total number was expected to increase to 95 thousand, reported to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova.
Authorities halloo to one another “optimization” of health, which had drastically cut the number of beds in infectious hospitals and infectious disease specialists actually. In the capital the number of beds was reduced three times: in 2013 there were more than 120 thousand, and at the end of 2019 – 46.8 thousand.
This means that highlighting is now in emergency mode new hospital beds designated for patients with coronavirus, the health of Moscow pureprofile space reserved for other patients who also require urgent assistance and medical ventilators, machines and ecmo (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation). These patients have not gone away, but in help they have to deny.
