In the Trans-Baikal Territory, 90% of the bed capacity for patients with COVID-19 is involved. With the introduction of new beds, the highest indicator for the entire period of the fight against coronavirus infection will be achieved.

Speaking at an operational meeting of the government, Deputy Prime Minister of the Trans-Baikal Territory Inna Shcheglova noted that in addition to the 1688 beds already used, it would be possible to deploy 532 more and this is the last reserve available now. Medical and health services are starting to develop a plan to organize treatment for COVID-19 patients outside of medical organizations.

Inna Shcheglova also emphasized the rapid dynamics of morbidity, if about 170-180 new cases were registered daily until mid-September, then from the second decade of October - more than 220, up to 260 cases, and the day before, 271 cases of coronavirus infection were detected.

Mass vaccination could reduce the incidence rate, but its rates in Transbaikalia are low - herd immunity is estimated at 49%. The first component was vaccinated by 374 336 residents of the region, the second - 354 491. The population of the region, according to the 2010 All-Russian Population Census, is 1 107,1 thousand people.
