Heart disorders annually kill at least 18,000 in Kyrgyzstan
At least 18 thousand citizens annually die of various heart disorders in Kyrgyzstan, Ainagul Jumagulova, director of the Kyrgyz National Center of Cardiology and Therapy of academician Mirrahimov and chief cardiologist of the Kyrgyz Healthcare Ministry told reporters in Bishkek on Wednesday, "24.kg" reported.
Kyrgyzstan reportedly loses up to 50 able-bodied citizens each and every day. "In the past 20 years cardiovascular disorders mostly hit those between 30-59 years old. People often give all other strength to work and do not care about their health. We have checked workers of the Bishkek City Hall, National Bank and other state structures to find out that 80 percent of them do not know their working arterial tension," Jumagulova said.
The doctor said that in Soviet times workers were more watchful to their health. "We should revive this tradition as soon as possible," she said.
