During the day, 21,615 patients recovered.

The operational headquarters for control and monitoring of the situation with coronavirus in Moscow reports that 1,342 people were hospitalized in the city during the 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. 633 patients are connected to artificial lung ventilation devices.

Over the past 24 hours, Moscow doctors have treated another 21,615 patients. During the entire period of the pandemic, 2,140,512 people have recovered. During the day, 81 patients died with a confirmed diagnosis of pneumonia and a positive test result for coronavirus.

During the day, 18,541 new cases of COVID-19 were recorded in the city. As explained at the operational headquarters for controlling and monitoring the situation with coronavirus in Moscow, the increase in the incidence is mainly due to the introduction of changes in the procedure for registering new cases of COVID-19 at the federal level. The results of rapid tests carried out in polyclinics (in departments for the reception of citizens with symptoms of acute respiratory viral infections) are now accepted for daily registration of COVID-19 cases, along with the results of PCR diagnostics, without the need to wait for their confirmation by PCR research.

For the patients themselves, the treatment algorithm does not change. As before, observation and treatment for COVID-19 begins for patients with symptoms of SARS after receiving a positive rapid test result.

Now Muscovites with symptoms of SARS 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 sign up for an appointment on the portal mos.ru, on the emias.info website and in the EMIAS. INFO. Patients who do not use digital services can still come to the duty doctor 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-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.
