In several regions of Yakutia, an outbreak of coronavirus occurred in neuropsychiatric boarding schools. The cases were confirmed at once in three PNIs.

According to the press service of the government of Yakutia, all three institutions are now undergoing official checks, each case of the disease will be considered separately. The PNI will create quarantine zones for patients who will oversee the republic's medical institutions. The staff was temporarily reinforced with an additional staff of social workers.

At first, the disease was asymptomatic. Until the coronavirus was confirmed, those infected had no symptoms of SARS and fever.

Among all the guests of the PNI, about 100 cases of coronavirus were confirmed. According to the head of Yakutia, Aisen Nikolaev, outbreaks of the disease under strict quarantine indicate that the leadership of the Ministry of Health of the republic did not draw conclusions after the incident in the Tommot boarding school. And in relation to employees of the ministry, in whose department the social institutions are located, decisions on personal responsibility will be made.

In total, there are 46 stationary social service institutions in the republic, where about three thousand elderly and disabled people live. Since April 1, they have been in strict isolation: staff work for two weeks, constantly being tested for coronavirus before the shift.

An outbreak of coronavirus in the Tommotsky boarding school was detected after a prosecutor's check on July 13. Head of PNI removed from office, and then opened a criminal case.
