“We began fighting against coronavirus in Central Oilmen Hospital since March 23," said Infectious disease doctor of Central Oilmen Hospital Farrukh Sadirov at the press conference of Task Force under Cabinet of Ministers of Azerbaijan, APA reports.
He noted that reforms have been made to accept coronavirus patients in a very short time.
“Although we had difficulty for a few days initially, in the later days, everything was organized at a high level. 22% of the total 10 thousand patients died in Germany during February-April. This percentage as per age groups is changing. This indicator was 15% in the age group ranging between 60-70, and 5% in the age group below 60. In our hospital, the death percentage is lower by an extra 10% i.e. is 12%. In general, the percentage of people infected with and died of coronavirus in Azerbaijan is less than 1%. These figures are higher in Iran, China, Europe. This is associated with the operative implementation of quarantine measures. Today we know and present everything that the world knows. Today, the death percentage is very low in our country”, the doctor-infectologist stressed.
