Statistics on coronavirus and community-acquired pneumonia will be combined in Kyrgyzstan. The Head of the Public Health Department Ainura Akmatova told at a briefing.
According to her, earlier coronavirus was diagnosed only after PCR analysis, and there were only single cases of community-acquired pneumonia. But now, with an increase in the flow of patients with community-acquired pneumonia, they are hospitalized without PCR test, because they need urgent treatment.
Earlier, the Prime Minister Kubatbek Boronov admitted that pneumonia is a consequence of COVID-19.
Ainura Akmatova also added that everyone who comes with pneumonia is provided with assistance. At least 106 medical workers came to Bishkek from all regions.
«They arrived because there is a high incidence of coronavirus and pneumonia since June 20 in Bishkek and Chui region,» she said.
So, 35 medical workers came from Issyk-Kul region, from Talas region — 23, Naryn region — 20, Chui region — 4, Batken region — 24. At least 23 medical workers came from Russia on July 5.
Ainura Akmatova noted that all activities were carried out not to create shortage of doctors in the regions.
