“We really see an increase in severe cases. And the mortality rate increases inevitably. What we have seen in the last two or three weeks: From my hospital I can say that during this time there has been an increase in the number of patients with Complicated forms, “said the chief physician.
The chief physician said that in his hospital, patients with a mild form of the disease are monitored remotely, which do not have complications such as pneumonia.
“Today we are treating patients who have developed complications of coronavirus infection – the most common is coronavirus pneumonia. As the number of patients admitted increases every day, the dynamics only increase,” the doctor emphasized.

There’s just some sort of restriction in the work of some establishments. This is not even a half-measure, “Sack concluded.
