On April 15, President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov opened a new hospital in Turkmenbashi, where he held a meeting on health issues with government members present at the ceremony, the state information agency TDH reports.
Speaking to the officials, the president said that the country is fighting the spread of especially dangerous infectious diseases and noted that this work must be continued in the future in accordance with the requirements. Whether measures against the spread of coronavirus were meant is not specified. As previously reported, the country's leadership avoids mentioning COVID-19, replacing it with SARS, seasonal infectious diseases, or other descriptive terms.
Also, according to Serdar Berdimuhamedov, the government will continue to work to strengthen the physical and moral health of young people. As it was reported the day before, the deputies of the parliament held agitation and propaganda events among girls and women dedicated to the national Turkmen traditions, the sanctity of the family, the norms of etiquette and education .
Addressing the Minister of Health and Medical Industry Nurmukhammed Amannepesov , the President said that "taking into account the steadily growing number of citizens' requests to the Ashgabat Dental Center, it became necessary to build another similar center in the capital ". Berdimuhamedov instructed to build it on free areas directly opposite the city's Emergency Ambulance Center.
It should be noted that the Emergency Ambulance Center is located at the intersection of Gyorogly, Bikrova and 2072 streets. There are no free areas “directly opposite”. There is a bus stop at the northwest corner of the intersection, and a little further west (see map of the area below) begins a residential area. According to correspondents of "Chronicles of Turkmenistan", in February local residents were warned that their houses (there are about 300 of them in the region) were to be demolished.
Demolition of the building of the former Turkmen-Turkish University began here two weeks ago .
In February, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov ( a dentist by education, - HT note ) also announced the “feasibility of building” another Dental Center in Ashgabat .
The capital has a Dental Center, which is located on the southern outskirts of the city. The 6-storey tooth-shaped building opened in 2013. In 2017, a Dental Research Center was opened in Ashgabat with treatment rooms at the Medical University, where patients are also received.
