Temporary monitoring points for medical screening of coronavirus-infected people have appeared across Ukraine. This was reported by the press service of Ukraine’s Healthcare Ministry on its Facebook page.
Screening points are reported to be deployed in the first-wave hospitals throughout Ukraine.
"All patients with respiratory symptoms who go to a healthcare facility (self-referrals, those who directed by a physician or emergency medical team) must undergo primary screening before entering hospital’s ER (emergency department)," Healthcare Ministry stated.
As we reported earlier, the European Union will provide the assistance package to Ukraine in the sum of €80 million to facilitate the influence of crisis with coronavirus on the healthcare system, lives of people and economy.
First of all, the aid package will aim at the support of the healthcare system, including the financial contribution of the WHO for its work in Ukraine.
“At a bilateral level in Ukraine, we are accelerating the launch of a new SME support programme (€20 million) under the 2020 EU budget, with a new €10 million made available for lending in hryvnias for SMEs. A program in support of small farms of €25 million comes in addition to the €26 million allocated already in 2019,” the message noted.
