One of the drivers of the ambulance station in the capital of Khakassia, Abakan, recorded a video message to Russian President Vladimir Putin and Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu.

He said that patients with coronavirus COVID-19 no longer have enough places and offered to open a hospital on the basis of a local military unit.

Employees of other medical institutions also complain about the situation in Khakassia due to the coronavirus pandemic. They note that patients in hospitals do not always have the opportunity to receive additional oxygen, - the website of the radio station Ekho Moskvy reports.

"We take patients to hospitals for the sake of a formal reply, so that doctors relieve themselves of responsibility. They are sent home for treatment. The places that are allocated are sorely lacking. What is allocated, they are slaughtered literally in a day or two. The Ministry of Health, the government - everything shout with one voice that we are all right with medicine, we have medicines. And there are no medicines or antibiotics in pharmacies. What we have is a price increase by five to six times", - Abakan-news.ru quotes the appeal of doctors of Abakan.

According to the authors of the appeal, they have to stand with seriously ill, suffocating patients, sometimes without oxygen in the car for several hours while waiting for their hospitalization, and a pack of paracetamol in pharmacies has risen from 15 to 78 rubles.

Minister of Health of Khakassia Viktor Shevchenko says that in the near future, additional beds for patients with COVID-19 in Sayanogorsk and Ust-Abakan will be deployed in the region, and after that the bed capacity in the region will exceed 1000 units, notes shansonline.ru.

Back in May, the head of Khakassia, Valentin Konovalov, was submitted by the prosecutor's office of the republic because of non-payment of allowances to doctors for work in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. The reason for this was the results of the prosecutor's check.
