A covid hospital based on the perinatal center is being opened in Angarsk. This is the sixth specialized hospital for patients with coronavirus in the city.

As the press service of the Irkutsk region government reports, as soon as the pandemic subsides, this hospital will be the first to close. According to Regional Deputy Minister of Health Elena Golenetskaya, the perinatal center was not considered for the treatment of patients with COVID-19 for a long time, but the lack of bed capacity forced it to do so. She added that the building of the center has a large reserve of space and oxygen supply.

Women in labor will be sent to medical institutions in Irkutsk and Usolye. On the basis of the perinatal center, the delivery room and the operating unit for emergency care will remain. The women's clinic will continue to work there as usual.

For the treatment of patients with coronavirus infection in Irkutsk in two days almost 150 additional beds were deployed... On the basis of the regional oncological dispensary, 65 beds were created, 30 - in the city hospital No. 5, 53 - in the regional clinical hospital.

Now in the Irkutsk region 23 cases of coronavirus have been confirmed. Since the beginning of the epidemic, 849 patients have been cured of COVID-19 in the region, 19 have died.
