The professionalism of doctors, a modern medical and diagnostic base, and an adequate bed capacity allowed the capital to withstand the blow of the pandemic.
Metropolitan medical workers who distinguished themselves in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic received state awards. Handed them over Sergei Sobyanin.
According to the Mayor of Moscow, COVID-19 has become a challenge for the capital’s doctors, the burden on the healthcare system has almost doubled.
“Our doctors are always at the forefront, always at the forefront of the struggle for the life and health of people, but this year, of course, is special even for you, who are accustomed to stress, risks and severe cases,” he said. “You basically had to find the best, perfect treatments to save lives.”
A highly professional medical team, a modern medical and diagnostic base, an adequate bed capacity – all this allowed Moscow to withstand the blow of the pandemic.
“The most difficult situation was in the spring, when we were just setting up the entire system, and the dynamics of the incidence was such that it seemed impossible to stop it. During this period, 26 thousand hospital beds were involved, – said Sergei Sobyanin. – In the fall, we faced a situation when the number of patients became not less, but more. Both the complexity and the severity of the disease have become no less. Nevertheless, the situation has become fundamentally different. During this period of time, we have created new covid hospitals and equipped them with the best equipment. “
In the spring, hospitals based on 66 federal, city and private clinics were quickly deployed in Moscow to treat patients with coronavirus. Reserve capacities and temporary hospitals have been prepared. The Voronovskoye Moscow Clinical Center for Infectious Diseases was built in record time.
On the basis of city polyclinics, 48 CT centers were opened to diagnose the disease around the clock. The work of laboratories has been organized where PCR and ELISA studies are carried out. A telemedicine center has been set up to treat patients with mild illness at home. More than one thousand ambulance brigades are on the line every day – the use of modern information systems, including geolocation, allows them to arrive at emergency calls in 11-12 minutes, despite the increased workload.
More than 69 thousand doctors are directly involved in providing assistance to patients with COVID-19. These are doctors, nurses and nurses, staff and ambulance drivers.
Since March of this year, over 715,000 cases of the new coronavirus infection have been detected in Moscow. Doctors have cured more than 550 thousand people, including over 290 thousand in hospitals.
“There are new algorithms, new technologies for treating COVID-19. All our hospitals and all outpatients are provided with the necessary drugs. And today, with fewer beds, with fewer doctors who work in hospitals, we are coping with a greater workload, which was, say, in the spring. But all the same, the situation is extremely difficult, extremely difficult for many, many Muscovites, and hundreds of thousands have already passed through your hands, you remain today the main support and hope in the struggle for life and health, ”said the Moscow Mayor.
Now the city has deployed about 18 thousand beds to provide care for patients with coronavirus infection. There are 33 CT centers and 50 laboratories. Thanks to the opening of reserve hospitals, the necessary volume of planned and emergency medical care for Muscovites is preserved.
