Joint Forces police officer has been diagnosed with Covid-19. The law enforcement officer was performing tasks at one of the checkpoints in the Donetsk region. This was reported by the press center of JFO HQ on its Facebook page.
The patient is currently in the infectious diseases department of the medical institution under the supervision of doctors, and his health is satisfactory.
Everyone who has been in contact with him recently has been isolated, and the office premises have been disinfected. The contacts have also undergone a medical examination and testing for Covid-19.
"The Joint Forces Command is taking all necessary measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection among the military personnel," the message reads.
As we reported earlier, in Ukraine, more than 4,000 medical workers have been infected with the coronavirus.
"Unfortunately, about 20% of all infected with the coronavirus, i.e. 4,112 people – are doctors," Ukraine's Healthcare Minister Stepanov stated.
According to him, this situation arose due to the fact that Ukrainian hospitals had not been ready for the coronavirus pandemic.
