A hospital in Pereyaslav-Khmelnytsky town (Kyiv region) states that there are not enough blood-thinners for treating patients sick with coronavirus. Larysa Kuzmychuk, the director of the hospital said so to 112.ua agency's correspondent.
"Unfortunately, we've been experiencing issues with blood-thinners. So lags with supplies of blood-thinners occur - I mean, in the procurement process. There is only a small number of these in Ukraine now. At first, there were problems, not everyone wanted to have a deal with coronavirus. Now, people got used to it, and those who left - that's a small number, but they left. And the rest is working. The medical staff has been getting sick, and currently, they've been getting sick more than they did when the infection emerged", Kuzmychuk said.
Now, the hospital in Pereyaslav-Khmelnytsky beds have been occupied by more than 50 percent; 125 of 200 beds have been occupied.
On November 22, Ukrainian doctors confirmed 862 new cases of Covid-19. The overall number of those who got sick since the beginning of the epidemic reached 31,203.
