To assess the epidemiological situation, the number of hospitalizations is the most important indicator.
The operational headquarters for control and monitoring of the situation with coronavirus in Moscow reports that 1383 people were hospitalized in the city per day. Taking into account the dominance of the omicron strain and the peculiarities of the course of the disease in this variant of the virus, the number of hospitalizations is the most objective indicator to assess the situation. 470 patients are connected to artificial lung ventilation devices.
At the same time, over the past day, Moscow doctors have cured another 5323 patients. During the entire period of the pandemic, 1,946,142 people have already recovered. During the day, 23,994 new cases of coronavirus infection were detected in the city. The share of hospitalizations against the background of an increase in the incidence per day decreased to 5.8 percent.
During the day, 74 patients died with a confirmed diagnosis of pneumonia and a positive test result for coronavirus.
Now Muscovites with symptoms of acute respiratory viral infections can make an appointment with the doctor on duty online at their clinic. This will minimize the accumulation of a large number of patients at one time. Appointments can be made at mos.ru portal, on the emias.info website and in the EMIAS.INFO mobile application. Patients who do not use digital services are still may come to the doctor on duty without a preliminary call on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Operational Headquarters reminds: the best prevention of coronavirus infection is vaccination. Vaccination against COVID-19can be done by appointment at one of the vaccination centers based on polyclinics, as well as without an appointment at the points of work of mobile teams in popular public places.
