A third of coronavirus patients admitted to hospital die in the first 72 hours. Such statistics were shared by the head physician of the hospital in Kommunarka Denis Protsenko.

As the "Moscow Komsomol", Protsenko shared such data at the Congress on Infection Control and Prevention. According to him, since the beginning of the pandemic, the hospital in Kommunarka has received 30 thousand patients, of which 8,5% have died. After analyzing all fatalities, it turned out that patients died mainly in the first 72 hours after admission to the hospital, the rest at a later date. 

According to Protsenko, patients die fastest from hypoxia and thromboembolism, and later from sepsis, resistant to antibiotics. This is due to another feature of the coronavirus - the rapid formation of superinfects. As noted by Protsenko, in the new, recently built hospital, nosocomial strains should not have formed yet, however, already three months after the treatment of coronavirus patients, they appeared in all intensive care units, the reason is in the transfer from other hospitals.

The problem of resistance of infections to antibiotics is also faced in other medical facilities. According to the director of the State Scientific Center for Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology of Rospotrebnadzor, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor Ivan Dyatlov, now a sharp surge in drug resistance to antimicrobial drugs has begun due to the uncontrolled intake of antibiotics. Patients are increasingly showing pneumonia resistance to a couple of dozen antibiotics at once.
