Mariana Lysenko, the head doctor of Municipal Clinical Hospital No 52, told the media that despite all the positive aspects, the situation around the coronavirus infection continues to be alarming in Moscow.
The lockdown is gradually beginning to annoy the Russians because they are tired of staying at home. The one and only positive moment is that patients have been admitted to hospitals more evenly, and the hospitals manage to cope with the patients’ flow, but the situation remains alarming.
“People are notably tired of staying at home, and the restrictive measures have begun to annoy them,” Lysenko said in an interview with RT. “Therefore, they do not take it seriously and neglect precautionary measures protecting them and others from the coronavirus infection.
“On the whole, there is a sense of alarming calmness. Indeed, the fact that patients have been admitted to hospitals more evenly and the hospitals manage to cope with the patients’ flow gives cause for optimism, but personally I have definite misgivings.
“It feels like we are observing the calm before the storm,” Lysenko said.
