"No control or situation is embellished " - Tokayev on Government’s work
During the working meeting on the sanitary-epidemiological situation in the country, President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev criticized the work of akimats and the Government, Kazpravda.kz correspondent reports.
"It is not uncommon for an ambulance to arrive without the necessary equipment. As a result, precious time is lost to rescue a patient. Despite the revealed facts, the regions continue to report about good equipment of departments for the treatment of serious patients. This points to absence of control or wishing to embellish the situation. Such a situation is unacceptable," President resented.
As he noted, the full equipment of covid hospitals and ambulance services should be ensured as soon as possible in accordance with the protocols, down to all consumables. Personal responsibility for equipment should be assigned to region’s governors.
“I keep telling about the decline of medical care availability. This is reflected in the growth of maternal mortality, mortality from circulatory system diseases and other diseases. With the conversion of beds to covid beds, precious time is lost for scheduled operations. As a result, the number of patients with advanced pathology is growing, so is mortality. It is important to ensure the quality and availability of medical care in the pandemic conditions in all medical care areas. Timely vaccination within the framework of the National vaccination schedule is especially important, "Tokayev said.
