President of South Ossetia Anatoly Bibilov instructed the head of the Health Ministry of the Republic, Georgy Totchiev, to promptly submit a treatment card for patients with a positive test for the COVID-19 virus.

Yesterday the head of the Republic held another remote meeting of the headquarters to combat coronavirus, which was attended by the heads of key departments.

"It is necessary to develop a single card of patients' treatment, starting from the moment of passing the test for coronavirus and receiving the result, to full treatment, depending on the severity of the disease. I mean that when a citizen receives a positive test result, he must know exactly where he should apply. It is important that our citizens know where they can get help for a given degree of illness, "Bibilov said.

He advised the Health Minister to identify a group of doctors who will be observing the patients who are being treated on an outpatient basis.

"If there are not enough doctors, then it is necessary to involve doctors additionally, even if they are not virologists. Engage local doctors," the President said.

The President also suggested the head of the Committee for Consumer Rights Protection Marina Kochieva to determine a daily norm for testing.

According to Kochieva, "it is possible to conduct about 150 tests in one day."

Bibilov instructed to distribute the daily rate of tests in medical institutions not only in the capital of the Republic, but also in the districts hospitals.

"Today we have a difficult situation and we need to react based on the real state of affairs. Doctors should have treatment protocols for patients with mild, moderate and severe illness," Bibilov added.

He has stressed that the Russian military field hospital, designed for 150 beds, is also ready to provide all-round support in the treatment of patients with coronavirus and instructed the Minister of Health to "organize the referral of patients with COVID-19 to Russian doctors."

Today, 181 patients with COVID-virus are in the hospitals of Tskhinval
