MOSCOW, November 29. /TASS/. Russia’s Ministry of Health and Federal Medical and Biological Agency (FMBA) will send a mobile hospital from Rostov-on-Don (southern Russia) to Crimea to improve the situation with the provision of medical assistance to the peninsula’s population amid power outage, the ministry’s spokesman Oleg Salagay said on Sunday.
"Russian Minister of Health Veronika Skvortsova has taken a decision to send, together with the FMBA, a mobile hospital to Crimea, which has all necessary medical equipment for the diagnostics and treatment (including a full-fledged operating room and a laboratory) to provide medical assistance in the areas where there are power shortages," Salagay said.
The mobile hospital is due to arrive in Kerch, Crimea, on Monday.
Also, Russia’s Ministry of Health, if needed, will evacuate to federal clinics the most serious patients treated in intensive care in Crimea, the ministry’s spokesman Oleg Salagay said.
"Skvortsova noted that the situation with the most severe patients (there are 57 of them in the region now) was monitored constantly. If they need additional assistance, they will be transferred by the ambulance aviation of Russia’s Federal Medical and Biological Agency (FMBA) to federal medical facilities for further treatment," Salagay said.
