In regions where there is a shortage of equipment and personal protective means for combating against coronavirus, doctors should contact the local Ministry of Health, not the media, said Dmitry Peskov, spokesman of the Russian president.
- Doctors can and should bring their needs to the competent authorities of their regions. Each region has a ministry of health, and it should receive objective information from medical institutions. But the fact is that the ministry of health in the region should be the main recipient of this information, and not the newspaper and the media, - Peskov's words quotes Meduza.
The presidential spokesman added that both the federal center and regional authorities have all the necessary potential to "close this deficit."
“But, of course, situations where some unscrupulous people try to use this situation for some tantrums and to wind up the situation, they are inappropriate and unacceptable.” Now the main thing is to provide doctors with personal protective equipment. And any requirements of doctors in this regard should be fulfilled, ”concluded Peskov.
Meanwhile, outbreaks of infection of doctors with coronavirus are occurring in the regions. So, coronavirus was detected in dozens of doctors and patients in the eye center of Krasnoyarsk. In Moscow, the first doctor died of coronavirus. Doctors say they are dismissed due to the fact that they have to take tests for COVID-19 without even basic masks.
As for the regional Ministry of Health, where instead of the media, according to Peskov, doctors should go, the department in the Krasnodar Territory, for example, not only listened to the doctors, but also gave the advice - to sew the shoe covers themselves.
