I ask you to pay great attention to the treatment of patients, as the number of deaths from the virus is growing. Infection cases are on the rise among healthcare workers. I demand to step up the work on infection control. If there is enough PPE, and training is carried out online, then why do doctors get infected?» Aida Ismailova noted.
