A group of 11 chief doctors of Russian covid hospitals, including the head of the hospital in Kommunarka, Denis Protsenko, wrote an open letter addressing the ardent opponents of coronavirus vaccination.

In a letter addressed to the head of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Gennady Zyuganov, chairman of A Just Russia Sergei Mironov, actress Maria Shukshina, actor Yegor Beroev, actors Yuri Loza, Natalia Vetlitskaya, Katya Lel, Oskar Kuchera, leader of the Alice group Konstantin Kinchev and others the doctors invited the addressees to an excursion to the "red zones" of medical institutions. They invited the "anti-vaxxers" to visit not only ordinary wards, but also intensive care units, as well as look into the morgues, where the bodies of those who died from covid are located.

“We know your position on the vaccination of Russian citizens against COVID-19”, - Kommersant quotes the text of a letter from doctors.

The authors of the appeal noted that all the doctors "are now a little busy, and you can probably guess with what".

“However, given how many people read, listen and listen to you, we will find time to guide you through the “red zones”, intensive care units and pathological departments of our hospitals. Maybe after that you will change your position and fewer people will die".

At the end of the letter, the doctors provided a phone number to sign up for a tour of coronavirus hospitals.

Earlier it was reported that in Russia, where the drug for vaccination against coronavirus was certified earlier than other countries, the rate of vaccination remains low. According to the head of Rospotrebnadzor According to Anna Popova, the stabilization of the epidemic situation can be said in 34 regions of the country. At the same time, the increase in the incidence of coronavirus infection in 18 regions continues.

Popova expressed dissatisfaction with the low rates of vaccination of the country's population. According to her, the proportion of those vaccinated against influenza in Russia is only 36% of the country's population, and this is extremely insufficient for the formation of persistent herd immunity. At the same time, the level of immunization from covid is about 50%, while for a successful fight against a pandemic, antibodies must appear in at least 80% of residents.

Today, in a number of regions of the country, requirements have been introduced for compulsory vaccination of certain groups of the population. The pace of the vaccination campaign is still low: about 500 thousand people receive the vaccine a day. To accelerate the pace of vaccination, from February 1, the authorities want to extend the QR-code system throughout the country. While it operates in certain regions, the degree of restrictions in the regions varies greatly.

In a number of subjects, visitors without QR-codes are prohibited from entering almost all public spaces, including public transport, in other subjects there are no such restrictions.
