In addition, in the regional oncological dispensary, State clinical hospital No. 5 of Bratsk, State clinical hospital No. 6 of Irkutsk, the number of beds for patients with coronavirus has been reduced. Thus, in the Irkutsk region 5,215 beds remain in 54 medical organizations for patients with COVID-19. According to the governor Igor Kobzev, this is enough to "close all daily admissions of patients and have a 20% supply".
“Thus, we are gradually starting to provide planned assistance. This is especially important for patients at an oncological dispensary. We returned 55 beds of the dispensary to the provision of specialized medical care”, - said the head of the Irkutsk region.
At the same time, Kobzev recalled the need to reduce mortality from coronavirus. For this, it was decided to allocate funds from the regional budget for the purchase of expensive drugs necessary for the treatment of severe patients in hospitals.
