The figure looks alarming, since even before the number of new cases does not hold up to eight thousand. In total, the country registered more than 124 thousand virus-positive. However, part of the rise alarming statistics can be explained by the fact that increasing the number of tests that pass by the Russians – pass at the initiative of the authorities and at his own request.

Accountant from Nizhny Novgorod Irina Malashkevich (54) admits that a month ago, not really believed in the threat of infection.
“it Always seems – even if the virus is somewhere in there, it will not happen with us. I have all started as just a cold. A slight fever appeared, other strong symptoms was not. Well, I just asked for help, and, when the test for the virus gave a positive result, it is, of course, very scared,” says the woman. “I don’t know, actually, where he could be infected. But what I was treated and treated fairly easily – this is due to the fact that I seriously treated his ailment and went directly to doctors”, – said Irina.
Vera Zvereva (53 years) works as a accountant, but in Yoshkar-Ola. On her page “Vkontakte” has left made in March of the assumption that a coronavirus is a kind of symbolic autoimmune disease of our planet. Such arguments were then in fashion: the Terrans reminded of the need to stop, to rest, to be alone with your thoughts, and allow to clean up “our favorite places”, like Venice. The last time Faith went to your page, 3 APR. 4th, she was taken to the hospital.
“I was in the hospital with a temperature under forty. When we started treatment in the hospital, the drip, the temperature at the time was falling, but then again jumped to forty. This continued for two weeks.
14 days I spent in intensive care, I’m hooked up to a ventilator. Fought for his life,” recalls Faith now.

Still I have a big weakness, has not passed the lung will be treated. I really want to live, breathe and enjoy life,” – says the woman.
“It’s a miracle that I after such a heavy back, I was lucky to be in caring hands. And close I was told: hold on. Constantly about me were paramedics, assisted me, I am very grateful to the Doctors, of course, is very hard. Work tirelessly, all the power give to patients,” emphasizes Faith.

Have put in hospital in St. Petersburg, it then closed on quarantine coronavirus, says now Zinaida Vasilievna. – After discharge the husband complained about the heat. He measured his temperature is 38.5, the pressure increased, tachycardia”.
Then his wife called an ambulance.

Put in the same room with her husband – so it was easier to survive, after all around. He had heavier it three times, was hooked up to a ventilator. Thanks to our doctor Yury Popov, the doctor of God, thank you nurse Sasha girls and nurses. I was in the hospital for two weeks, husband is 18 days.”
All this time the native supported Jelencovich phones in the house were ringing off the hook, she adds.
“But, of course, difficult. Especially if you know that monophosphatase are small children – three-year-old in my opinion. If not think about yourself – we say, have lived, it’s hard for me to think about children, grandchildren. You do not want them “substitute” – so they wouldn’t have us to care,” said Zelentsov.
After discharge, according to her, the housemates proved humanly not shied away, asking about health.
