Kyiv is preparing for the third wave of coronavirus infection, as the capital's medical institutions will be able to provide 5.5 thousand Covid beds if necessary. This was announced by the deputy chairman of the Kyiv City State Administration Hanna Starostenko, as Kyiv City Council press service reports.
According to the official, directors of the second wave hospitals must prepare medical institutions to receive patients during the third wave of the epidemic.
"The primary task for us is to check the readiness of healthcare institutions for new challenges: their provision with centralized oxygen, medicines and personal protective equipment. We must be sure that all hospital bases will be able to provide quality medical care to both adult patients and children," Starostenko said.
As it was reported earlier, scientists from the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine believe that there is a threat of a new rapid increase in a coronavirus incidence.
