The governor of Chukotka, Roman Kopin, promised to “consider the possibility of acquiring” a computer tomograph at the Chaunsky district hospital. According to him, this will allow examining patients from Pevek and Bilibino without making a flight to the district hospital.

He stated this during an assessment of the readiness of the medical institution to receive patients with coronavirus. According to the press service of the government of Chukotka autonomy, Roman Kopin also examined the observatory for temporary placement in quarantine. According to him, under an unfavorable scenario, it should be possible to organize additional placements in the regions of Chukotka. Moreover, they must be equipped with ventilators and everything necessary. He added that at least 5 additional beds for patients with COVID-19 can be equipped in Pevek.

As the chief doctor of the Chaunsky district hospital Nikolay Nikodyuk told, they have enough antiviral and antiseptic drugs, anesthetic and respiratory devices are available. The hospital has an apparatus for fluorography, ultrasound diagnostics and endoscopic systems. All personnel are instructed on how to proceed in identifying a patient with coronavirus.
