"In warm weather, hospitals cope well with their work, people come and receive appropriate treatment. We are glad that the number of patients going to hospitals has started to decrease. Forecasts are being made for a possible second wave of the pandemic.

Therefore, we must be ready for autumn and winter. Appropriate work in this direction is already underway, " President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbay Jeenbekov said, on July 25, at an event to lay a capsule for the construction of an additional infectious diseases hospital for 100 beds in Bishkek.

The information policy Department of the President's office reports that, according to UrmatbekKokocharov, Director of the State Agency for architecture, construction and housing and communal services, the construction of the hospital will be carried out from prefabricated structures on the territory of the Republican clinical infectious diseases hospital.

Currently, preparatory work has begun on the site, and construction is planned to be completed as soon as possible. The construction of similar hospitals is also planned in the city of Osh.

In a conversation with the medical staff of the hospital, the President noted the positive role of day hospitals in the fight against the spread of coronavirus infection, but stressed the need to build new hospitals.

The head of state added that due to the inept reform of the health care system at the time, the number of beds, hospitals and medical institutions in the regions was reduced. In this regard, work has now begun in all regions to reconstruct old buildings and hospitals that have been left standing in preparation for the autumn-winter period.

The President stressed that in addition, complex hospitals will be built in Bishkek, Osh and all regions of the country with the involvement of investors within the framework of public-private partnership.

"We will build multi-profile hospitals where our citizens will be able to receive modern medical services in one place. There are investors who are interested in cooperation on the principle of public-private partnership," Jeenbekov concluded.
