As part of the assistance to the population, specialists of the military construction complex have built 30 multifunctional medical centres with a total area of more than two hundred thousand square meters in 23 regions of the country in 9 months. They are equipped with the most modern equipment.
Thanks to the measures taken, the incidence rate of coronavirus in the Armed Forces per 100 thousand people is 37% lower than in the country.
To do this, since April, the number of PCR laboratories has been increased two and a half times and the number of tests per day has been increased seven times. This closed the need for testing of military personnel and civilian personnel of the Armed Forces.
The time to receive test results has been reduced from two days in April to four hours in June.
More than eight thousand beds have been deployed in military hospitals for inpatient treatment, half of which are used in the interests of the population. Since the beginning of the pandemic, medical care has been provided to more than 13 thousand civilian patients. In addition, about five thousand veterans, as well as large families of military personnel and those who lost their breadwinner, received social support measures. For the purpose of early diagnosis of coronavirus, the number of tomographs has been increased by 8 times, which allows conducting studies on the day of treatment without failures and queues. Currently, the Armed Forces are actively conducting mass vaccination.
A strict quarantine has been introduced in military educational institutions. Educational organizations work in a planned mode using an electronic learning environment. Thanks to this, the training was not interrupted.
During a pandemic, it has shown to be effective telemedicine. The number of remote consultations has increased fivefold.
The sanitary aviation of the Ministry of Defence made 191 flights, 630 patients were evacuated in serious and extremely serious condition.
48th central research institute of the Russian NBCP troops took part in the development of the Sputnik V vaccine. On the basis of medical institutions of the Ministry of Defence, it was tested. I would like to note that this institute is the only research organization in Russia certified by the OPCW. At the same time, its experimental base has not been updated since 1992.
We are grateful for your support, Mr President, for the proposals to create a modern laboratory and experimental complex in the 48th Central Research Institute. This will allow us to participate in international investigations in the areas of the institute's activities, as well as to create promising vaccines and medicines. Currently, the Government of the Russian Federation is working on the issue of allocating additional budget allocations for these purposes.
In the Armed Forces, as well as in the whole country, there is a high level of cancer.
In 2021, in the interests of military personnel and employees of other law enforcement agencies, it is proposed to begin construction of a Single Cancer centre on the basis of the Burdenko hospital and a multidisciplinary centre in Sevastopol. We have about 150 thousand security officers and their families in this city, and there is no decent medical institution.
Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich!
I ask you to support the joint initiative of the law enforcement agencies to create these facilities.
Improving the readiness of troops to carry out mission.
The Armed Forces in the context of the pandemic fully maintained high combat capability and completed all planned activities.
