We keep following the advice from governments of our patients' countries and Russian government. As we have seen in other countries in Europe this week some have started to open up a little bit. Russia is several weeks behind, so we just work on as before and keep our patients updated.
We believe that soon everyone will adjust to working safely during corona times in different areas and branches, including IVF clinics. 23 April European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology has published its Guidance on Recommencing ART treatments. Usually it doesn't take much time till ESHRE guidelines are adapted to local specifics and used for good IVF practice.
At the moment we keep working as before, 90% of our process has always been online and only 10% in the clinic. We take time for this 90% work now and adjust our Treatment Plans to patients' medical situations primarily and most importantly and this is where our focus is. It is better to do clever and efficient treatment several months later than haste quick treatment on the run sooner. The result is more likely to be achieved by a thoughtful and individual approach. It takes a lot of our doctors' time to analyze, weigh up pros and cons, propose strategy, decide tactics. To create an individual Treatment Plan for a new patient takes hours, to change dates in it — several minutes. Do not lose your focus.
