The chief physician of the Botkin Hospital in Moscow became infected with the coronavirus
The chief physician of the Botkin Hospital in Moscow and brother of the TV presenter Elena Malysheva, Alexei Shabunin (pictured), confirmed that he had become infected with coronary disease. He continues to work, being isolated in his office.
This was reported by RIA Novosti, referring to the ingot department of health.
“The hospital fully fulfills the tasks entrusted to it in providing emergency medical care, as well as assistance to cancer, hematology and ovoid patients,” Shabunin said in the press service of the department.
According to the head physician, recently he has been talking with colleagues only in conference mode.
Shabunin is a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and an honored doctor of Moscow and Russia.
Recall that earlier the head physician of the hospital in Kommunark Denis Protsenko contracted the coronavirus. He also did not stop working, remaining isolated in his office.
Meanwhile, in Russian regions, doctors report a fear of contracting a coronavirus. The fears of doctors are due to the elementary lack of protection against infection - in many medical institutions there are not enough masks and costumes. Someone is forced to sew masks from gauze on their own, and someone is wearing pillowcases on their heads. Under such conditions, many hospital employees quit, fearing for their health and the health of their loved ones.
