In the capital and in other cities, we intend, if necessary, to place the sick in temporary hospitals that equip in shopping malls, sports facilities and other major capital facilities.

In Moscow consider the experience of other countries in developing measures to combat the spread of coronavirus infection. This was told Sergei Sobyanin in an interview with TV channel “Russia 24”.

“The experience of foreign countries in General is invaluable for us, because many of them have already passed the peak, passed the quarantine regime, many are emerging from the crisis, and behind this tragedy many. Just a national tragedy, a thousand dead, dead, hundreds, tens of thousands ill, and in severe form. And, of course, important as worked there healthcare system, what measures have been taken, what worked and what didn’t work and what is the situation there today. If we saw none of this, I think we would have adequate measures also are unable to take, because someone had to go first and show by example. But it is better to learn from the experience of others, than his,” said the Mayor.

Primarily took into account the experience of China, where the epicenter of the spread of infection has become Wuhan. There were isolated cases of people, sent them to quarantine and monitored contacts. According to the Mayor of Moscow, the city also tried to isolate guests from China of people who might carry the disease.

“It has allowed the situation to stabilize, and, in fact, the threat from China from the point of view of infection simply did not. And China closed their borders, and we closed,” said Sergei Sobyanin.

According to him, in Europe, the centers of the spread of the coronavirus was more — Milan, Madrid, Berlin, Paris and other cities. Almost all over the world flew to Moscow people who might carry infection. More than a million people over the last eighteen months he returned to Russia from abroad, of which there were only 120 thousand Muscovites. They tried to quarantine, but to do it quickly and it was quite difficult.

“In my opinion, the Chinese version is impossible. We are already working on the European version, when the pandemic within the country and you just have to fight, smoothing peaks, you are talking about, to sharply curve off to have it smoothed. Thus, as it were, increases the time of the epidemic, on the one hand, but on the other hand, that this smoothing enables the health normally and to help people, because when the explosion occurs, the amount critically ill is becoming such that no single country can’t cope with that. No!” — added the Mayor.

Also in the capital as in other cities, we intend, if necessary, to place the sick in temporary hospitals that equip in shopping malls, sports facilities and other major capital facilities. Now deploy temporary hospitals 10 thousand beds in the pavilions of the exhibition center, speed skating center “Krylatskoe” and automobile shopping centre “Moscow”.

“What is this? As the medical staff is still not enough to serve in each ward, one or two person, better to let them be large spaces with good ventilation, the air exchange, the doctor saw several patients to be treated more people. This is the case, if all the same we approach peak values and not enough of the existing system of hospitals, hospitals. I hope it will not be necessary, but such a possibility is still there, because we see that this week the number of occupied beds by 50 percent increased relative to last week”, — said Sergey Sobyanin.
