In Ukraine, the arrival of ambulances will depend on the patient's condition. This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmygal.

"The government has supported the decision to introduce additional criteria for calling an ambulance regarding the priority of medical care. Depending on the patient's condition, calls to the ambulance will be divided into critical, emergency, non-emergency and non-specialized," the statement said.

It is noted that this step will reduce mortality as it sets a priority for patients in critical condition.
