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 1,426 people were hospitalized in the city per day. Taking into account the dominance of the omicron strain and the characteristics of the course of the disease in this variant of the virus, the number of hospitalizations is the most important indicator for assessing the situation. 578 people are connected to artificial lung ventilation devices.
Over the past day, Moscow doctors have cured another 13,022 patients. Over the entire period of the pandemic, 2,034,827 people have already recovered. During the day, 18,856 new cases of COVID-19 were recorded in the city. The share of hospitalizations is 7.6 percent of the number of cases.
During the day, 81 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. You can make an appointment on the mos.ru portal, on the emias.info website and in the EMIAS.INFO mobile application. Patients who do not use digital services can still come to the doctor on duty without prior callin live order.
Telemedicine options have been expanded for patients with COVID-19 and SARS who are being treated at home. After making a diagnosis, they can seek advice by signing up in the UMIAS: Telemedicine application. The username and password for the service are sent via SMS.
The Operational Headquarters reminds: the best prevention of coronavirus infection is vaccination. Vaccination against COVID-19 can 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.
