Assistance to the doctors of the Institute of Otolaryngology during the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic
Boris Lozhkin together with Nadiia Shalomova have handed over protective overalls, next generation respirators, goggles and disposable gloves to the State Institution “Prof. O.S.Kolomiychenko Institute of Otolaryngology by the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine”.
«Any doctor – a therapist, pediatrician, dentist, ophthalmologist and even more so an otolaryngologist (ENT specialist) – is at increased risk, even higher than the elderly and the people with chronic diseases. All doctors, regardless of their specialization, are unable to provide assistance avoiding contact with their patients. That is why, it is so important to provide doctors with the maximum means of protection, for them to have an opportunity to keep on providing aid to everyone who needs it», - said Boris Lozhkin.
People from all over Ukraine apply to the doctors of the Institute. The best Ukrainian specialists in the field of nose, throat and hearing problems work at this Institute, that is, precisely those organs that are the first to meet the virus. And it is important that the doctors themselves are protected to the greatest possible extent.
