More than 900 cases of pneumonia have been reported this week.
In the Sverdlovsk region – outbreak of pneumonia. According to the regional Rospotrebnadzor, 920 people picked up a dangerous disease from 19-11 November, which is 47% higher than the average for many years. At the same time, from November 12th to November 18th, 880 cases of pneumonia were detected – 4% less.
Pulmonologist GKB №33 Evgeny Medvedevskikh in a conversation with "URA.RU" said that the increase in incidence of pneumonia is not associated with the dust that flew through Yekaterinburg until the snow fell. "The number of pneumonia rates increases as the number of colds increases. As the temperature drops in large numbers, a virus infection occurs that carries bacteria in the body," explained the specialist.
Despite the alarming statistics, in hospitals, patients are exposed to respect for doctors. Yevgenia, living in Yekaterinburg, told the agency how she, on November 25, with high fever, cough and chest pain, came to the clinic in Clinical Hospital No. 3 for a doctor, Elena Shangina. She did not even give Evgenia instructions for tests and diagnosed "ARVI". When the girl got worse, she went to a private clinic. There, after the X-ray, the patient was diagnosed with pneumonia.
Now, Evgenia will file a complaint to the City Health Department: "I think the doctor showed negligence and incompetence, which can lead to sad consequences." In the hospital management, Eugenia promised to carry out an on-site inspection. We could not call a comment to the principal doctor at the city's clinical hospital no. 3rd
