After an outbreak of coronavirus at the construction site of a military hospital in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, investigators opened a criminal case against the head of the contracting organization. In just a few days, 250 people fell ill at the construction site.

As Roman Vasilevsky, acting deputy prime minister of the Kamchatka Territory, said at a briefing, the first 28 cases of the disease among workers at Zabsibgazprom were announced on April 22. Despite all the efforts, including the regional government, to distribute people, separate patients from healthy people, and organize preventive measures, in just a few weeks the number of cases increased almost tenfold.

According to Roman Vasilevsky, he is a witness in this case. Case materials are in the prosecutor's office of the Kamchatka Territory.

Now the Ministry of Defense's modular hospital is working to receive patients with coronavirus, not only from among the employees of the department, but also civilians. Construction took less than two months.

A total of 2 cases of coronavirus were recorded in Kamchatka. The Regional Ministry of Health believes that situation with coronavirus stabilizes in the region.
