Trutnev: the increase in the incidence of COVID-19 in Sakhalin is the highest in the Far Eastern Federal District

Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev called the growth rate of the incidence of coronavirus in the Sakhalin Region the highest in the Far East. He asked the regional authorities to pay attention to this.

During the meeting on the socio-economic development of the Sakhalin Oblast, it became known that the region’s incidence growth rate is 4% (growth index 1,26). According to the latest data, 1 cases of COVID-163 were confirmed in the region, 19 people recovered, 595 undergoing treatment.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Oriental Development, as part of the fight against the spread of coronavirus infection in the region, 630 infectious beds were created, 221 of them with oxygen supply, 92 with mechanical ventilation devices. The region allocated 374,8 million rubles for medical equipment, reagents and personal protective equipment, including 201,2 million rubles from the federal budget.

According to the Governor of the Sakhalin Region Valery Limarenko, existing laboratories in the region can increase the number of studies to detect coronavirus infection to five thousand tests per day. In June, 2-2,2 thousand such studies were done daily. According to the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova, Sakhalin Oblast is one of the foremost in terms of testing.

Despite the incidence rate, the regional authorities decided to open the entrance to the island region not only for labor migrants and close relatives of Sakhalin residents, but also for organized tourist groups. At the same time, to visit the Sakhalin Oblast, you still need to obtain a digital pass and receive a certificate confirming the absence of coronavirus infection.
