The volume of planned medical care in hospitals will remain.
There is enough bed capacity in Moscow for patients with coronavirus, saidSergei Sobyaninon the air of the TV channel “Russia 24”.
To treat patients with COVID-19, additional blocks of hospitals are withdrawn from the reserve fund every day.
“Not the hospitals themselves are being taken out, but the buildings that were reserved for the treatment of patients with COVID-19 and were in the hot standby. In addition, we have a large reserve of mobile hospitals, which have already been talked about many times – to replace, ”said Sergei Sobyanin.
The volume of the provision of routine medical care in the capital’s hospitals will remain, despite the increase in the detection of coronavirus in last weeks, added the Mayor of Moscow.
“I must tell you that we do not refuse planned assistance. Moreover, we analyzed in detail the volumes of planned assistance during the year. It has not decreased compared to 2019. That is, all the main parameters have been preserved, including the volume of medical care in especially difficult cases. And we will continue to do so, ”Sergei Sobyanin said.
Starting September 28, Muscovites over 65 years old and citizens with chronic diseases must observe a home regime. In this case, you can go to the store, pharmacy or go for a walk. The main thing is to avoid crowded places and observe safety measures – wear masks and gloves, keep social distance.
“You have to understand that each such trip is a certain risk. Here it is most likely necessary to control this situation ourselves. If you see that there are a lot of people in the store, you don’t need to go there, let’s wait. The best thing is not to go there at all. Contact the social workers at the call center, who will deliver food to you, help you buy medicines – both at the pharmacy and from the clinic, if necessary, ”said Sergei Sobyanin.
Also city services can bring firewood to the dacha and garden plots of Muscovites. You can ask for help by calling the hotline: +7 (495) 870-45-09. Calls are accepted daily from 08:00 to 21:00. Seven thousand social workers are ready to help.
Working city dwellers over 65 years old are centrally discharged sick leave at the request of employers. Citizens with chronic diseases can apply for electronic sick leave certificates on the website of the capital Department of Healthor by phone: +7 (495) 870-45-09.
According to the Mayor of Moscow, such measures have been taken for the safety of Muscovites so that they do not contract COVID-19 and end up in the hospital. At the moment, already 25 percent of the sick are people of the older generation. Many of them are difficult to tolerate the disease.
“If you need to, please take a walk. But walk so as not to communicate with neighbors, with strangers. Try to walk alone whenever possible. Take care of yourself, this is very important, ”added Sergei Sobyanin.
From October 5, employers in the capital are required to transfer to remote workat least 30 percent of employeesas well as all employees over 65 years of age and people with chronic diseases. The rule does not apply to employees whose presence in the workplace is critical to the functioning of the organization. In addition, the requirement does not apply to medical organizations, Rosatom corporations, Roskosmos corporations, defense industry enterprises and some other strategic industries.
Companies that violate sanitary regulations, as well as the requirement for the number of employees who should be transferred to remote work, will be sanctioned. So, to date, according to Sergei Sobyanin, about 150 stores in Moscow have been closed due to violations of security measures related to the coronavirus.
