It seemed that recently the whole world witnessed the unprecedented construction of hospitals for those infected with the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in China. I recall that the first temporary hospital was erected in China for a record 10 days, soon followed by others. A few months later, the coronavirus has spread across the planet and at the time of this writing, claimed the lives of more than 47 thousand people. The situation and methods to combat the spread of CoVID-19 differ in different countries. So, in the U.S. most cases were in new York, and recently arrived in the city a huge ship that will host patients. In Russia, unlike European countries and the United States, CoVID-19 came later, but because the peak incidence is yet to come. So the main task today is to support the health system in the Moscow region began the construction of two infectious disease hospitals. Intend to build a hospital for 30 days.
How many infected with SARS-CoV-2 in Russia?

Most of the infected are in Moscow and St. Petersburg, and the number of deaths reached 30. Somewhat underrated immediately after his appearance, CoVID-19 proved dangerous to virtually all age groups: at the beginning of the epidemic, it was believed that at risk are people over 65 years which corresponds to the “classical picture” during an epidemic seasonal flu. However, today it became known that the new coronavirus poses a risk to young people. According to Interfax, in Moscow 40% of patients with the new coronavirus on the ventilator under the age of 40. This is disturbing news. As the news of the death of 16-year-old Frenchwoman, who did not have health problems.

Around the body is erected the outer perimeter fence, and sewage will be displayed on Autonomous sewage treatment plants, which are equipped with disinfection systems. Itself the infectious diseases center will consist of several buildings, which – depending on the destination will be built from prefabricated structures e.g. concrete blocks, laminated panels and modular structures. As reported by “Nezavisimaya Gazeta” are involved in the project for more than two thousand workers and at least 1,000 units of construction equipment.
