Due to the rapid increase in the number of new cases of Covid-19 infection, starting tomorrow, the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDPC) will begin sending text messages to those infected, about which it will receive information from laboratories, the CDC said.
Text messages will be sent from phone number 29188770 to those people whose phone numbers are listed in the information provided by the laboratory. You can still verify a positive test result for Covid-19 on the e-health portal, in the information issued by the laboratory, or at the family doctor.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the CPKZ has been interviewing and consulting patients with Covid-19 continuously seven days a week, but in the current epidemiological situation, even this is not enough to manage to contact more than 2,000 patients a day.
CPPC explains that the correct behavior of patients with Covid-19 is critical to prevent further spread of the infection and reduce the risk of infection to relatives, colleagues and others. Therefore, CDC calls on everyone diagnosed with Covid-19 infection to strictly adhere to the isolation regime, including not leaving the medical facility, place of residence or isolation, as well as to be available for communication and cooperation with the family doctor and other medical professionals.
An exception is when an infected person requires medical attention as directed by a doctor. In such cases, be sure to use a medical face mask and follow your doctor’s instructions for taking precautions to limit the spread of Covid-19 infection.
During isolation, an infected person should not put other people at risk of infection by coming into direct contact with them (receiving guests, making private visits, going to work, or visiting public and public places and premises). It is also necessary to follow the instructions of the CPPC and the doctor.
Isolation can only be terminated with the permission of the attending physician, while a patient with Covid-19 is issued a certificate of incapacity for work for the period of isolation, if necessary.
The CPPC urges every patient with Covid-19 to immediately notify the employer, the administration of the educational institution or other collectives, as well as all family members living together (in the same household) about the fact of their infection. The CPPC also reminds that it is the responsibility of high-risk contacts to strictly adhere to home quarantine.
The CPPC asks the public to show understanding of the current situation and to take responsibility for their own health and the health of others.
The contact person for Covid-19 is a person who has had one or more of the following high-risk contacts: direct contact with an infected Covid-19 at a distance of two meters for more than 15 minutes over 24 hours (including repeated contacts with a total duration of more than 15 minutes), physical contact with a Covid-19 infected person (for example, shaking hands), direct contact with the secretions of a Covid-19 infected person (for example, when he coughed), being in a closed environment (for example, at home, in a classroom, conference room or hospital waiting room), or as a minimum 15-minute ride with a Covid-19 infected in one vehicle.
