To prevent infection with coronavirus, you need to take precautions. It is necessary to wear protective masks and gloves in transport and in public places, use antiseptics and maintain social distance.
The situation with the spread of coronavirus in Moscow cannot be called stable yet. Today, for the first time since mid-May, more than six thousand cases of COVID-19 infection have been identified. An increase in hospitalizations is also recorded. According to the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development Anastasia Rakova, the situation cannot be called stable now.
1,300-1400 coronavirus patients are admitted to hospitals every day. More than 15 thousand beds for patients with COVID-19 have been deployed in the capital; today, 70 percent of this fund is involved. In addition, there is a bed reserve that can be deployed if necessary.
Despite the difficult situation with the coronavirus, planned treatment of patients with other diseases does not stop in the capital. The number of appointments for applications not related to coronavirus reaches 80 percent of the same period last year.
Anastasia Rakova noted that among those hospitalized with a diagnosis of “coronavirus infection” there are many who self-medicate and did not go to the doctor on time. She emphasized that the capital’s doctors have extensive experience with this infection and have the necessary medications.
Fighting COVID-19: Temporary Hospitals Allowed Not to Repurpose City Hospitals
One of the ways to prevent infection with coronavirus is prevention among people who may have come into contact with the sick. This system was improved in the fall. For each case of the disease, an epidemiological investigation is carried out to identify people who have come into contact with the infected. All of them are sent SMS messages, as well as send information to the place of work or study, so that the person is provided with sick leave for the period of self-isolation. On average, doctors identify nine to nine and a half thousand contact persons every day.
To prevent infection with coronavirus, you need to take precautions. It is necessary to wear protective masks and gloves in transport and in public places, use antiseptics and observe social distancing. It is also worth limiting trips to shopping malls, theaters, restaurants, and other crowded places.
