On March 19, 2020, it became known that in Moscow, a 2019-year-old woman died of coronavirus infection 19-nCov (COVID-79). This was reported from the operational headquarters to control and monitor the situation in Moscow.
It is noted that the woman had chronic diseases and was hospitalized on March 13, 2020. However, on March 14, 2020, at the insistence of relatives, she switched to a private medical organization for treatment. Moreover, after receiving a positive result of the analysis for coronavirus, she was immediately transferred to the infectious diseases hospital No. 2.
It is emphasized that, being in the specified hospital, the patient received complex intensive care, in connection with increased respiratory failure. It is clarified that the patient was in an isolated box. A woman died as a result of pneumonia due to severe concomitant pathologies (coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus, arterial hypertension, condition after stenting of coronary arteries, coronary artery atherosclerosis, aorta, urolithiasis, cerebrovascular disease, chronic pulmonary hypertension). The head doctor of the Infectious Diseases Hospital No. XNUMX, Svetlana Krasnova, explained that all the actions of the staff were coordinated with the main freelance specialists of the health department.
Currently, the entire circle of close patients is established - they are under the supervision of medical professionals. None of the patient’s close contacts have severe symptoms of the disease. We remind you that complications of infectious diseases are especially difficult for people over 60 years old, therefore it is they who need to reduce the risk of infection as much as possible and try to minimize contacts and visits to crowded places
- summed up in the metropolitan headquarters.
It should be added that the first death in Russia from a coronavirus was confirmed by Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin, who is the chairman of the State Council working group on countering the spread of coronavirus in the country.
