According to him, 2,062 beds have been deployed in Bishkek for those infected with coronavirus and community-acquired pneumonia, including 69 intensive care units.

«But they are quickly filling up, so it was decided to open an intensive care unit on the territory of the former Gansi airbase. Specialists of the National Center for Oncology and Hematology, the Bishkek Scientific Center for Traumatology and Orthopedics, and the Chui Regional Hospital will work there.

«Those who need intensive care will be accommodated there. Two reanimobiles will also be constantly on duty there. If a patient needs transportation, they can arrange it quickly. In addition, we will supply the unit with liquid oxygen in order the doctors not constantly need to change the devices,» the Deputy Minister of Health said.
