According to Russian media, the coronavirus was diagnosed by Denis Protsenko, 44, chief medical officer of the Kommunarka infectious diseases hospital in Moscow. His condition appears to be satisfactory. Most likely, Protsenko was infected by his patients. He confirmed his diagnosis and declared that he was “isolated”.
Dear friends, very moved by your concern. Yes, I have a positive CoV test, but I feel pretty good. He isolated himself in his office, where all the conditions are met for remote work, management and telemedicine consultations. I think the immunity developed during this month is doing its job,
He wrote on Facebook.
It should be noted that a week ago, the Kommunarka hospital was visited by the 67-year-old Russian president, Vladimir Putin, who spoke with his staff, including the chief doctor. Before entering the medical establishment, Putin put on a special protective suit and a respirator. The president then praised the work of all the hospital’s medical staff.
I watched them work, all in combat stations. I don’t want to use these military expressions here, but really everyone works for you like a watch, like a good coordinated mechanism. We feel that people know what to do, how to do it, they have everything, they use their equipment, their device, their means efficiently, ”he said.
However, earlier today Vladimir Putin held a meeting in which Protsenko also participated. According to Vladimir Putin’s press secretary Dmitri Peskov, the president regularly takes the coronavirus test and feels normal.
