Krasnodar, 14 May. Our today’s interviewee is Yevgeni Filippov, Minister of Public Health of Krasnodar krai. 

Q.: What is the current situation with the spread of the coronavirus infection in Krasnodar krai? 

A.: Looking at the statistics of the number of the revealed patients suffering from the new coronavirus infection, we can state that the number of proved cases is not so high in our region. However, it would be too premature to claim that we have reached the plateau – first of all, because owing to the constraining activities we have managed to break up the social links and, as a result, we don’t have the explosive character of the growth of the number of infected patients. But, despite all measures, we do see some growth in their number. The gravest mistake people are making during the quarantine is offending the elementary sanitary-epidemiological requirements, denying the very existence of the virus, and neglecting the constraints. 

Q.: What is the situation in the hospitals receiving coronavirus patients? Are there enough medical staff? 

A.: We can compare the present-day work of our public health system with the battlefront line. The staffing level of the hospitals depending on the number of beds exceeds 70%. When necessary, medical specialists are moved from other hospitals to COVID wards – this is done from our employee pool, consisting of more than 300 medical specialists of various types. Besides, a request has been sent to the Kuban State Medical University to provide information on the graduate and postgraduate students, attending physicians and teaching staff who may be recruited to render medical aid to COVID-19 patients. 

Q.: How much does treatment of one COVID patient cost? 

A.: Treatment of one patient at the expense of mandatory medical insurance costs 64,600 roubles, if what is at issue is a mild case of the disease. In case of a middle form of the disease, the treatment would cost 205,000 roubles. A severe form of the disease costs 503,000 roubles. 

Q.: They say that much more patients may die of other pneumonias. How are these cases treated now? 

A.: In April 2020, the mortality rate for community-acquired pneumonias others than COVID-19 was by 35 patients less than in April 2019 (88 vs. 53). The total number of lethal cases over four months dropped by 194 (257 in January – April 2020 vs. 451 in January -= April 2019).
