The conference, attended by 150 people in person and more than 500 experts online, will feature a total of 19 presentations by leading Azerbaijani and Turkish experts in two panels and an interactive board discussion and question-and-answer sessions.
Chief of the Medical Service Department of the State Customs Committee, Major General of the Medical Service Jeyhun Mammadov noted that 46 state hospitals had been designated in the country to fight the pandemic:
"One of these charged hospitals, the Central Customs Hospital, has been treating only COVID patients for a year and a half. During this period, more than 1,600 coronavirus sufferers were hospitalized at the Central Customs Hospital, and 233 of them in critical condition were treated in the intensive care unit. Of these patients, 183 were connected to an artificial lung ventilator, and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation was used to heal 16 patients."
