According to the doctor, hospitals redeveloped for “first and second level contacts” with infected coronavirus are already full.
“Moreover, as I was told, there are already ten cases of infected people among doctors working with contacts. Some of my friends doctors are waiting for the results, because they were hospitalized as “contacts”, ”the doctor said, noting that there is a high probability that the authorities of Belarus will not cope with the pandemic.
