The head physician of the Kommunark hospital Denis Protsenko told the president that the situation with coronavirus in Russia can go according to two scenarios: “Asian”, when the wave of the disease quickly subsides, and “Italian”, when it grows. Medic called for preparing for the worst scenario.

According to him, it is now very important to work out the “Italian” scenario and prepare for a big surge of patients. Hospitals must be prepared for the transformation and reception of a large number of patients.

According to Denis Protsenko, if the situation in Russia follows the “Chinese” or “Korean” path, then everything will end in April-May. In this case, not much effort is required.

“But it seems to me that you still need to prepare for the most difficult,” said Denis Protsenko.

Vladimir Putin supported his proposal and promised to discuss this with the government. Now in Russia 495 patients with coronavirus, 22 have recovered, about 93 thousand remain under the supervision of doctors. Most cases were registered in Moscow, where authorities allowed patients with a mild form of COVID-19 to be treated at home.
