The fight against Сoronavirus infection does not stop for a day. The operational headquarters for prevention of the infectious diseases spread at ZSMU, which has been operating since March 12, monitors the situation on a daily basis and takes the necessary measures. Whether it is restricting access to outsiders, increasing disinfection, or providing medical care, decisions are always clear, reasonable and ultimately effective.
The staff of clinical departments organized a permanent medical care of patients with signs of acute respiratory diseases on campus — in dormitories and the Medical Rehabilitation and Prevention Center. Here, in the Center, they collect samples for tests in the PCR laboratory of ZSMU, accredited by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine. The tests are performed quickly and efficiently, thanks to which it is possible to keep the situation with the incidence of COVID-19 under control.
It is difficult to overestimate the contribution to the fight against Сoronavirus infection of Professor Olena Riabokon, Head of the Department of Infectious Diseases, and Professor Olena Usachova, Head of the Department of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, who provide assistance in particularly difficult cases to all city hospitals.
The Administration of Zaporizhzhia State Medical University expresses its gratitude for the conscientious work of all related employees and initiated their financial encouragement.
