The Republic of Moldova is in line to receive the vaccine against COVID-19
Along with other states, the Republic of Moldova is standing in line to receive the vaccine against COVID-19, which has not yet appeared. Currently, 26 preparations are in various stages of testing, six of which are in a good stage of clinical trials. At the same time, a possible medical institution for the treatment of patients infected with the virus will be put into operation in 2021. It is about one of the blocks of the Institute of Phthisiopneumology "Chiril Draganiuc" from Straseni, reports Moldova 1.
"We had a recent discussion on the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations platform. There have been discussions that the Republic of Moldova, when a safe, pre-qualified vaccine appears, will be able to use it for risk groups. We are in line," declared the head of the National Agency for Public Health, Nicolae Furtună.
The authorities announce that block no. 2 of the Institute of Phthisiopneumology "Chiril Draganiuc" from Straseni will be renovated and re-profiled for the treatment of patients with COVID-19. Currently, the design and determination of the volume of expenses is being carried out.
"The works to be carried out within this institution are not and cannot be carried out urgently, because these are extremely important works. We are also talking about the water supply. It is also about the ventilation system and many other aspects," said the Minister of Health, Labor and Social Protection, Viorica Dumbrăveanu.
According to the municipality, 633 of the 862 places available in Chisinau hospitals are already occupied by patients. More than 5,400 people with mild forms of the disease are treated at home.
