Pensioner with coronavirus dies in NKR: she was denied hospitalization in time

A pensioner who was denied treatment for coronavirus died in Petropavlovsk. For almost two weeks, hospitals did not admit her, until it turned out that 60% of her lungs were affected, Astanatv.kz reports.

75-year-old Nina Savchuk died a few days ago. Relatives say doctors did not begin to treat her until it was too late.

"The patient report says she was transferred to intensive care, the head doctor says that she was not in intensive care. So they just neglected her, she could survive, "said the patient's niece Anna Karpitskaya.

The woman had previously tested positive for COVID-19. But, according to the relatives, now doctors do not admit that death was due to the coronavirus. The posthumous report says: "pneumonia, the causative agent is unknown."

At the same time, doctors demand that a pensioner be buried as infected with CVI. For the family it is double the cost. The protective suits and disinfection alone cost 100 000 tenge.

The Health Department of North Kazakhstan region declined to comment on the situation.

"I have no right to disclose personal data. It is the disclosure of medical secrets, Kumat Kusemisov, deputy head of the NKR Healthcare Department said.

Regional health officials did not see any violations on the part of the doctors. And the relatives, though outraged by the attitude of the doctors, do not intend to sue them.
