The situation with coronavirus in Russia is not changing for the better. This was announced at a meeting on the sanitary-epidemiological situation in the country by President Vladimir Putin.

He noted that the number of cases increases, more severe cases of the disease become. The President said that the coming weeks will be largely decisive, therefore, preventive measures and the work of the healthcare system need to be built “with a margin” and taking into account all factors.

To correct this trend, Putin instructed the government and relevant departments to make an objective forecast of the development of the situation - medium-term, long-term, as well as for the periods of the next three, seven and ten days. He also asked to take into account all scenarios for the development of the situation, even the most complex and extraordinary, in order to promptly adjust the strategy and tactics of medical care.

In addition, the president asked to rationally distribute the load on hospitals and clinics, to provide an opportunity for maneuver taking into account the situation in specific territories: redirect supplies of protective equipment for medical staff, reserves of ventilation devices and medicines, medical teams to the regions and institutions where they are most in demand.

Also, Vladimir Putin said that if necessary, the military will be involved in assistance. According to him, a small part of the Ministry of Defense’s specialists is now working abroad, the main reserves are in reserve, so it will be possible to attract them.

Now in Russia there are 18 cases of coronavirus in 328 regions. The number of recovered patients increased to 82 people, the deaths - up to 1 people.
