The COVID-19 coronavirus is a new and not yet fully understood disease that emerged in China at the end of 2019.

On January 31, 46, the school called an ambulance: a student who had recently arrived from China had symptoms of SARS. The girl was immediately taken to the hospital and placed in a separate box. However, after the analysis, the diagnosis was not confirmed.

The first case of coronavirus infection was discovered on March 19 in a local resident. The man returned from Brazil on a connecting flight via Switzerland, then flew to Moscow and on to Cheboksary. The man showed consciousness and himself turned to the medical services for examination. An analysis for coronavirus showed the presence of infection. Now the man is undergoing the necessary treatment at the emergency hospital in a special isolated ward under the supervision of doctors. The room has its own shower, toilet and separate ventilation. A man receives three meals a day, which is delivered to the ward through a special gateway.

According to doctors, today the patient's condition is assessed as satisfactory. The patient is not disturbed by anything except the state of weakness, there are no symptoms of SARS. However, we are not talking about discharge yet, since the patient was previously diagnosed with bilateral pneumonia.

Now they are all in isolation.

On April 2, another case of coronavirus infection was confirmed. The girl arrived in Chuvashia from Moscow.
