Vaccine and medicine

The consumption of antibiotics in Russia has grown, although they are useless in case of coronavirus infection, said Inna Kulikova, director of the department for organization of emergency care and health risk management of the Russian Ministry of Health, at a meeting of the State Duma Committee on Health Protection. As early as next week, the department plans to begin issuing free COVID medicines to those patients who are undergoing treatment for coronavirus at home. The money for medicines for patients who are treated at home has been sent to the regions of Russia, said the head of the Ministry of Health Mikhail Murashko.

It can be dangerous to rinse your nose and throat during a coronavirus epidemic, says Tatyana Romanenko, chief physician of the Tvoi Doctor clinic. She told URA.RU that because of the flushing, the mucous system is disrupted.

In Russia

In Russia over the past day, 18 648 new cases of the disease were recorded. 15 331 Russians recovered (1 251 364 recovered during the entire pandemic), 355 people died from the coronavirus (the total number of deaths from the disease reached 28 473 people).

The Ministry of Health acknowledged that the main problem in the fight against coronavirus is the shortage of personnel and the workload of hospitals. Inna Kulikova, Director of the Department for Organization of Emergency Medical Aid and Health Risk Management of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, emphasized that the load on the infrastructure and resources of the domestic health care system has increased manifold.

Former chief sanitary doctor of Russia, State Duma deputy Gennady Onishchenko told where you can "quietly" get infected with the coronavirus. According to him, first of all, it is dangerous to be on the metro during rush hour, as well as being in the elevator. The danger, in his opinion, is also represented by communal apartments.

The rise in the incidence of ARVI is joining the coronavirus pandemic. As reported on the website of Rospotrebnadzor, the threshold for the incidence of acute respiratory viral infections (ARVI) was exceeded in 47 out of 85 regions of the country. “In the total population, the epidemic thresholds for the incidence of ARVI have been exceeded () mainly at the expense of the adult population,” the supervisory service noted.

In the world

North Korea has mined its border with China to protect citizens from the coronavirus. According to the South Korean agency Yonghap, Pyongyang has no technical or physical means to combat the spread of COVID-19, and if the virus spreads across the country, at least 500,000 people could die. Pyongyang previously promised to punish those officials who cannot cope with the spread of COVID-19 - they face the death penalty.

Meanwhile, Europe is uniting amid the coronavirus pandemic. So, France will send patients with COVID to Germany due to a lack of hospital beds. The authorities have announced that the workload on hospitals has increased dramatically in the past few days.The transfer of patients to other countries, in particular to Germany, will help reduce the workload of medical institutions.

The world is at a critical juncture in the coronavirus pandemic. This was stated by the WHO representative in Russia Melita Vujnovich. She stressed that the next months will be very difficult. The representative of WHO noted an accelerated increase in morbidity with relatively stable mortality.
