Ukraine will reduce the network of hospitals that accept patients with Covid-19. This is due to the fact that the epidemiological situation is stabilizing. Healthcare Minister Viktor Lyashko stated this during an hour of questions to the government in the Verkhovna Rada.

"In order to provide planned medical care, planned hospitalizations, and planned operations, we need to reduce the network of hospitals now ... Not by closing the facilities where patients will be hospitalized. And to allow people with other infectious diseases to be hospitalized," Lyashko said.
According to him, no hospitals are closing, but it is said that there is a network of Covid hospitals, which increased the bed stock for the treatment of patients with Covid by more than 50% during the two major outbreaks in autumn 2020 and spring 2021.
2,266 new cases of coronavirus infection were registered in Ukraine in 24 hours. Particularly, 82 children and 20 medics got infected.
