At a meeting of the city governor, a decision was made to instruct and inform all structures involved in the work to combat the disease. The whole situation is controlled by the Minister of Health and the governor of the city.

The situation in the city: is there a panic

To determine what the real situation is in Khabarovsk, the head of the city issued a decree - to examine all citizens of the region who are ill with pneumonia.

This issue was raised at a meeting of the sanitary commission to assess the current situation with colds.

Around the world, the situation with coronavirus is constantly getting worse. For this reason, a decision was made in the Khabarovsk Territory to take the necessary actions and increase preventive measures. It was also decided to test for the virus in everyone who has signs of a cold.

Footnote: “Due to the fact that more and more new cases of coronavirus infection are being registered in Russia, double control is carried out at airports for all passengers who arrive from abroad. Those who raise any suspicions are immediately sent to quarantine. Everywhere restrictions are imposed on mass events, disinfection is organized. During the recent inspections, a passenger from China was detained with suspicion of a dangerous disease.”

Physicians of the city noted the growth of patients who fall ill with SARS or influenza. The number of patients exceeds the permissible level. There are patients throughout the Khabarovsk Territory and around the city. Their number is up to twenty thousand. This situation has led to the closure of schools, kindergartens for quarantine. Due to the fact that there are suspicions of an infection, quarantine has been declared in the 7th hostel of Khabarovsk.

A hospital will be built for people with suspected coronavirus

In connection with the current situation in the Khabarovsk Territory, the city authorities decided to build a hospital with 500 beds for those who contracted the coronavirus. This medical facility is planned to be built in three months. Around the same time, the necessary equipment will be delivered and personnel will be selected. The place where the building will be built has already been chosen. This decision was made at the federal level. It was noted that after the decline in the incidence of a dangerous virus, the hospital will be retrained as an infectious hospital.

A specific date for the start of construction of the hospital is not known. This issue is under discussion with the Moscow authorities. Most likely, the new medical facility will work not only for residents of Khabarovsk and the Khabarovsk Territory, but also for the entire Far East.
