Now, all residents of the region entering medical facilities as planned will be offered to undergo testing for COVID-19.
This decision was made to secure medical facilities. It is important that the analysis is done for free: at the expense of the compulsory medical insurance in the direction of a family doctor. This was told by the first deputy head of the regional health department Lyudmila Krylova. According to her, during a pandemic, any patient carries a risk of infection for a medical organization. Similar situations occur not only with coronavirus infection, but also with other viral diseases: chickenpox, measles, flu.
In addition, Rospotrebnadzor changed the guidelines for the examination of persons contacting patients with COVID-19. This was reported in the Department of Health of the Belgorod region.
Previously, contact persons were examined on the first day of contact, but now the examination has been shifted to the 10th day, since coronavirus infection is more often manifested at this moment. On the first day of the examination, contacts with the sick most often get negative results.
The algorithm of interaction with contact persons on the recommendations of the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare is as follows:
the fact of a person's disease with a new coronavirus infection is established; information about a positive analysis goes to the clinic at the place of residence, and doctors begin to remotely develop the focus; physicians contact people living in the same apartment with the sick person, analyze his home and work contacts together with Rospotrebnadzor; from this pool, contact persons are selected, which at the initiative of medical personnel should be tested on COVID-19 and monitored on a daily basis; if a person has not manifested symptoms of the disease for all 10 days of isolation, and he receives two negative tests, then medical supervision is removed;
if changes in the state of health appear earlier, then the person himself notifies the family doctor or an ambulance in case he needs emergency assistance.
Note: Any of these appeals is legitimate, and both medical services are responsible for providing him with medical care: remote telephone consultations or in-person assistance.
In addition, from June 8 in the Belgorod regional hospital began to do tests for antibodies to COVID-19. The service will be available on the day of the call by live queue or by pre-registering by phone.
Anyone can contact from 8:00 to 16:00 daily, except Sunday. Antibody testing (enzyme immunoassay) will be done in the clinic of the regional hospital and in building No. 9 on the 1st floor. Phone for recording – (4722) 50–48–48. The result will be known the next day.
