A doctor from St. Petersburg "kneeled down" and begged the Russians to observe self-isolation regime (VIDEO)
St. Petersburg resuscitation doctor Nikita Zapasnikov wrote a poem where he begs countrymen to strictly respect the self-isolation regime introduced in Russia in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
In his poem the doctor admits that he is scared, but he promises not to leave the hospital until the last patient in the country is cured. He asked Russians not to leave the house in order to at least slightly facilitate the work of doctors in polyclinics.
“And I'm getting on my knees and beg you, people of all generations, do not go beyond the threshold, do not bring this ill fate closer,” the doctor says in his poem published on Instagram .
In St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region the most unfavorable epidemiological situation has developed in terms of the number of patients staying daily among the country's regions. Now the number of people infected in the city and region has exceeded 1.2 thousand people. Five people died from complications. So far only 100 people in the region have managed to defeat the coronavirus. By the number of cases, St. Petersburg is second only to Moscow, where doctors can no longer cope with the influx of patients, are forced to stay in hotels near hospitals, and the total number of cases per day has increased to almost 14.8 thousand people.
