If the situation with the spread of coronavirus in Ukraine continues to deteriorate, the hospitals will admit only patients in severe condition as Hordon reported citing infectious disease doctor Olha Holubovska.
“If we observe such growth of incidence, we will be obliged to…change the strategy of hospitalization. Currently, we can hospitalize people who need some medical treatment. Medium to severe forms of incidence make the indications for hospitalization and by this fact, our country differs from many countries of Western Europe and the U.S.A., when only people in the severe states are hospitalized. But if we observe such growth of incidence, then, of course, we will be obliged to reconsider the indicators for hospitalization and hospitalize people only with severe forms of incidence,” she said.
As of August 21, 100,643 lab-confirmed cases of Covid-19 observed in Ukraine; 2,207 of those lethal. 51,078 patients recovered. 2,106 new cases were observed over 24 hours.
