Government cars been transferred to Health Ministry
Health institutions lack cars for driving at calls
Yakutia 24 TV channel: 20 cars of the government and parliament of the republic have been handed over to the Yakut doctors for calls.
The cars are in service of four institutions – the Medical Center of Yakutsk, the city hospital No. 2 and No. 3, as well as clinic No. 1. “In the city it is necessary to conduct a large number of analyzes of contact persons and people who came from abroad. The doctors require the large number of cars, which, unfortunately, medical institutions do not possess. I am sure that this decision will help to keep the situation under control and more quickly identify people who have been in contact with sick citizens,” says head of the republic Aisen Nikolaev.
According to Alena Barashkova, head of Republic Health Ministry headquarters, clinics do not conduct scheduled appointments, patients call doctors at home. The number of calls is a lot, from 30 to more than 100 per day.
