As Parfenchikov noted, it remains to be seen how the coronavirus got into the institution and why the management did not ensure the safety of patients and staff.

“If the anti-epidemic requirements were not observed in a social institution, the perpetrators should be punished,” RIA Novosti quotes the head of the republic.

Earlier it became known that nine guests of the boarding house fell ill with COVID-19, two with a confirmed diagnosis died. A total of 16 people were hospitalized. There are employees among the sick.

In June, it was reported that the regional prosecutor's office decided to check the Chelyabinsk Regional Clinical Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine, after a focus of the spread of coronavirus was recorded there.
