While the diagnosis was confirmed in early December, widespread lung involvement necessitated hospitalisation. At present, the doctors of the Almazov Centre are making every effort for Igor Bryzgunov’s swift recovery. His attending physician states a positive trend.
He says, “I am most grateful to the doctors for the help they are giving me, to my family and all the employees of the RAWI for all kinds of support, and of course, to the members of the RAWI for understanding and assistance in the hard times we are living now.”
At the same time, in the absence of the head, the RAWI continues to conduct its activities as usual. In order to comply with security measures, all RAWI employees work in a home office regime.
Igor Bryzgunov further notes, “The disease is here, and it is dangerous, it leads to hospitalisation, and, unfortunately, causes people’s death. I am convinced that the security measures [deployed in the country] are really aimed at stabilising the situation, at stopping the spread of the COVID, and it is very important to comply with them.”
