Second batch of humanitarian assistance pledged by Uzbekistan has arrived

Today, on November 19th, 2020, humanitarian cargo, comprising 80 containers for the construction of a hospital with a 400-bed capacity, arrived in Kyrgyzstan from its neighboring country. It was met by a delegation headed by the MoH State Secretary, Kalysbek Shadyhanov: “We have received the lightweight construction hospitals sent to us by Uzbekistan by rail. They comprise 80 containers with a 400-bed capacity. The 40-module building will be set up on the grounds of the National Hospital in Bishkek. Additionally, 40 module buildings with 200-bed capacity will be built in Batken province since the epidemiological situation in these two regions leaves much to be desired.”

Kalysbek Shadyhanov added that the hospitals will become operational within two weeks.

Meanwhile, the work on constructing a new hospital is starting in Batken province. A delegation headed by the Director of “Uzbekiston temir yullari” (Uzbekistan Railways), Husnitdin Hasilov, met with the Plenipotentiary Representative of the Kyrgyz Republic in Batken province, Janybek Jalalov, at a railway station in Kyzyl-Kiya.

It should be noted that 40 containers adapted for hospital needs have arrived in the province the day before. The lightweight construction hospital will be erected on the territory of Kadamjay district hospital. Preparation for construction is well underway.

The new hospitals in Bishkek city and Batken province will have all the necessary equipment and furniture. It is planned that highly qualified physicians will arrive from Uzbekistan for exchanging experiences with their Kyrgyz colleagues.
