A patient with confirmed coronavirus died in Belgorod. The 47-year-old was the first victim of a dangerous infection in the region. Today, April 13, Governor Yevgeny Savchenko announced this on the personal page of VK.
He said that a native of Biryucha was undergoing treatment in a regional infectious diseases hospital with a diagnosis of bilateral pneumonia. For 9 days, the patient was on mechanical ventilation.
Doctors did not stop the struggle for his life, but the disease was stronger.
Our fellow countryman left a family. I want to offer my deepest condolences to his family and friends. There are no words that in this difficult time would reduce your pain. But know that at this woeful moment our whole Belgorod family is with you.
Dear Belgorodians! We used to see frightening footage from TV screens, but today we are already faced with the harsh reality on our land. I ask you to be extremely careful. I urge those who continue to be inactive, as well as older people, not to leave their homes, to go out only in extreme cases. And those who work, I ask you to strictly observe sanitary and hygienic requirements: wear masks, gloves, keep a social distance. Do not risk your lives. Remember your family, your parents and children. Take care of yourself and each other!
