The Governor of Tomsk region Sergey Zhvachkin has sacked the head of the Department of health Alexander Kholopov after in a Network there were photos piled in a bunch of bags with the corpses of coronavirus patients in hospitals. A statement published on the official website of the regional administration. Officials initially denied the authenticity of the pictures, but then issued a new confirmation.
“I don’t want to confirm or deny the facts stated in the Internet for one of Tomsk morgue. For this purpose, a Commission that in the next few days is finished, — said the Governor. But I have already have the simple human questions: in a closed health facility could go strangers? Why it is not running the system throughput mode? Why none of the officials from medicine still can not clearly explain the situation?”
The head of the region noted that slaves fired for “organizational chaos” in the morgue. He added that the hospital should be set a strict access regime, and to prevent similar situations in the future need to establish a surveillance system. “It is unacceptable when strangers are in places, are shooting and then post the photos on the Internet. No one is allowed to mock the dead and discredit the work of our health workers,” — said the Governor.
