The current COVID statistics were announced at the meeting of the Operational Headquarters under the PMR President for prevention of the spread of coronavirus. 2545 Pridnestrovians with confirmed disease are being treated in hospitals of the republic, 39 of them are in critical condition in intensive care units, five – are connected to artificial lung ventilation devices. 129 people in hospital are awaiting the results of laboratory study of biomaterial. The workload of specialized hospitals is 86%. 3775 bioassays were sent for research during three days that have passed since the previous meeting of the Operational Headquarters, 84819 samples during the entire time of the pandemic. Infection with COVID-19 was detected in 1195 cases. 22 patients from COVID hospitals died, 613 were discharged during the same period of time. The total number of cases of infection registered among Pridnestrovians is 13471. 267 people died (mortality rate 2%). 8882 recovered (66% of the total number of cases) was discharged. 1835 Pridnestrovians are in controlled self-isolation.
Taking into account the dramatically increased detection rate of infected citizens due to the increase in the coverage of the population by testing, there is a need to apply the practice of treating asymptomatic carriers of the virus at home. The situation is predictable, and the reaction to it is a verified decision, the President emphasized during the meeting of the Operational Headquarters. Vadim Krasnoselsky noted that the responsible departments have worked out a detailed algorithm of actions, taking into account the practice of other states and the Pridnestrovian realities. Home treatment can only be carried out with the consent of the patient. Not all categories of citizens are affected by the new mechanism: elderly patients, carriers of the virus with comorbidities, citizens who cannot isolate themselves, will not undergo treatment at home. An important aspect: we are talking about treatment, and strictly controlled, the President emphasized. The discussion of the mechanism by members of the Operational Headquarters continues.
