In Moscow, two volunteers of the "red zone" were denied diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19

Both volunteers who worked in the intensive care unit felt severe symptoms of the coronavirus, but the help they needed for coronavirus infection was provided only after a resonance in social networks. According to one of them, such a situation may indicate attempts to manipulate statistics.

“On Friday night I had a fever, the situation is extremely rare for me. I slept badly, there was a fever, but by the morning, it disappeared like a hand. On Saturday evening fatigue and a temperature of 37.2 appeared again. Knowing the conditions in which I have been recently, I ordered a PCR test at home. On Sunday morning, a representative of the laboratory arrived - I did the scraping myself, it was 9 in the morning, I didn't eat or drink before the manipulation, I did everything correctly, according to the instructions. On Monday, I received a preliminary positive result, with a comment that my material was submitted for additional research. I did a CT scan - my lungs were clean, although a mild cough and discomfort appeared. The condition is still normal and tolerable. Just a dull head. Slightly persistent mucous membranes. I called a doctor. Young guys came in in masks below the nose, took a scraping, while barely touching the mucous membrane.We wrote out an isolation order. We awarded 6 boxes of Arbidol and left,”Sergei Nochovny describes his situation on Facebook.

According to Sergei, the private laboratory service Helix has confirmed a positive test for coronavirus. However, at the hospital he was told that he had ARVI and was offered to be treated at home.

A week later, Sergei developed symptoms characteristic of the coronavirus: his taste and sense of smell disappeared. At the same time, the young man received a negative coronavirus test from the city hospital. According to Sergei, he has never suffered from respiratory diseases, and his work in the "red zone" and a confirmed diagnosis from a private laboratory directly indicate that he contracted the infection in intensive care.

After his complaint to Rospotrebnadzor and a post on Facebook, which was shared by more than 350 users, the hospital confirmed Helix's analysis. Sergei noted that the doctor who came to his house asked why he was complaining.

A similar situation occurred with volunteer Ilya Kovalev, who worked as a volunteer in the "red zone" of one of the city hospitals together with Sergei. In a post on Facebook, he talked about the onset of serious symptoms: high fever, headache, fever, nasal congestion. The young man called an ambulance, warning that he worked in the "red zone".

“The ambulance arrived relatively quickly.

We measured the temperature. 38 …

Saturation jumped strangely: when inhaling - 96, when exhaling - 93

"This is a Chinese pulse oximeter - don't pay attention to it. I can see you - you're doing well," said the paramedic. I put it on my other finger - the same story.

- Maybe then we can do a smear (PCR test)? - I suggested.

- No, we don't do tests. Why do you need this?

- And what diagnosis will we write?

- is your nose clogged? then this is an acute sinusitis.. It gets worse - call us again. Good luck..

He left. The headache got worse. The temperature has risen to 38.6.. He has a severe fever,”writes Ilya.

Ilya's post was spread by more than 1,500 Facebook users, after which, according to him, the Moscow health department "began to cut off the phones of the hospital department heads and other good people so that they could influence me and I deleted the post."

“Not with the aim of testing me or measuring saturation with a normal device, but the purpose of the good old censorship is not to cover their actions, as they provide statistics for“the end of the epidemic in Moscow,”" Kovalev emphasized.

Ilya also said that the help from the Department of Health was not provided to him, doctors were privately involved in his problem.

“Thank God I have friends who got involved in my problem and helped. There are doctors who got involved in the process of my treatment and control over my situation.

And there are thousands of grandmothers in Moscow, to whom an ambulance also came, and who, in order not to spoil the statistics, did not get a test, they were advised to drink more water and stay at home more.. "- wrote Kovalev.

Note that the Russian authorities have repeatedly been accused of underestimating mortality statistics. In mid-May, the British newspaper Financial Times announced that Russia could significantly underestimate the death toll from the coronavirus. According to official statistics, 629 patients with coronavirus infection died in April in Moscow and St. Petersburg. But at the same time, the total mortality rate in these two cities exceeded the average level over the past five years by 2073 people. Thus, 1444 deaths for some reason remained unaccounted for, the newspaper writes.

On June 10, the World Health Organization (WHO) called the mortality rates from COVID-19 in Russia "difficult to understand". In an interview with CNN, press secretary Dmitry Peskov said that the state does not manipulate statistics.

He stressed that the low number of deaths in the country is associated with the effective work of health care institutions.

“Have you thought that the healthcare system in Russia is more effective?” Peskov replied and added that Russian medicine “makes it possible for more people to stay alive”.
