All of them, both who were mentioned in the list and those who were not included in it this year, are worthy of the highest appreciation and praise. Over the past 2 years, our team has had to cope with a difficult task: to continue their normal activities and keenly participate in the work of numerous specialized departments involved in the treatment of patients with COVID-19, while continuing to develop innovative medicines and train new generations of doctors.
