There are 135 ambulances in Tashkent, and in the first phase, another 50 ambulances will be equipped and put into operation in two days. The number of employees at the capital’s call center will be increased from 40 to 100 people.
In Uzbekistan, especially in the city of Tashkent and the Tashkent region, yesterday’s tactics and strategy to combat the coronavirus do not meet today’s requirements at all, Deputy Prime Minister Bekhzod Musayev said.
“Before, we used to identify the virus and then move on to treatment, the current situation shows that we need to act and help immediately,” Musayev said in the July 15 interview after the presidential videoconference.
According to the government official, there are 135 ambulances in Tashkent, and in the first phase, another 50 ambulances will be equipped and put into operation in two days. The number of employees at the call center in the capital will be increased from 40 to 100 people.
“Today, 750 mobile phones have been delivered to polyclinics in Tashkent. Three times a day, doctors call patients who are self-medicating and ask about their condition and give the necessary advice,” the Deputy PM said.
He noted that today’s problem is not only a problem of the healthcare system, but also of khokims at all levels.
According to Musayev, four heads of sectors in regions must be aware of the condition of patients. Through this, they get to know the pain and problems of the population and the state of the healthcare system in the region.
The Deputy PM also noted that the task of forming a stockpile of medicines and protective equipment was set at the videoconference dedicated to the discussion of the pandemic situation.
It should be recalled that on July 15, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, at a videoconference to discuss the situation regarding the spread of the pandemic, noted the gravity of the situation in the city of Tashkent and the Tashkent region and outlined measures to address the problem.
