The situation with the coronavirus has dramatically worsened in Palestine - 2,000 new cases are detected there every day. A delegation of Russian doctors is working in the autonomy hospitals. Hospitals are being redesigned for COVID 19 treatment. Hospitals are situated in Ramallah, Bethlehem, Hebron, Palestinian villages of the West Bank: every day the work of Russian doctors' team begins with a thorough preparation before going into the "red" zone. They were invited by the Palestinian Ministry of Health with the support of the Russian diplomatic mission in Ramallah. Doctors and nurses, resuscitators of St. Petersburg Medical University, who arrived here two weeks ago, share their experience, teach, advise, work with severe patients, helping their colleagues from Palestine in the fight against COVID-19. 
 Elena Gavrilova, associate professor of St. Petersburg State Medical University, head of the intensive care unit, says: "We move from city to city almost every day. Every day we visit a new hospital, sometimes we visit two hospitals a day. In each hospital we visit the infectious zone and examine patients. And I would like to note - the Palestinian doctors, firstly, are very open to communication. Secondly, we are like a breath of fresh air for them. "
 Now a team of six is ​​working in the "red" zone of the Turmus Aya hospital in the West Bank. The clinic's profile is eye diseases, but in order to avoid the collapse of the medical system, all hospitals in Palestine are opening coronavirus departments. "To be honest, we in Palestine did not expect that we would have such large numbers of patients here," admits the head physician of the hospital named after Hugo Chavez Basel Bavatna. 
 Basel Bavatna has recently graduated from the medical university in Rostov-on-Don, which, by the way, helped a lot in their work - the doctors spoke the same language, representing one scientific school. “As it turned out, there are a lot of doctors and nurses, who have studied in Russian-speaking countries. Someone graduated 20 years ago, someone just now, a year ago,” notes anesthesiologist-resuscitator Alexander Portyanov.
 Now our doctors will consult their colleagues remotely, because, according to the Russian medical tradition, they consider themselves responsible for those, whom they have been helped.
