Now patients have been placed in special boxes, and doctors are watching them.
“We specialize in respiratory infections and monitor them dynamically,” - Pavlo Nartov, head physician of the hospital, stated.
According to the doctor, only one of the students flew from Wuhan.
"There are criteria for selecting patients for coronavirus infection. Hospitalized students are not included in these criteria until the clinical case is determined. Most of them were in China, from where they recently returned. At the same time, there has so far only been one patient from Wuhan - and he did not have a coronavirus infection. Soon he will be discharged," - Nartov said.
Now doctors are waiting for the arrival of tests for coronavirus, since in the Kharkiv region there are no such test systems.
“So far, such test systems have been only in Kiev, in the laboratory center. Today we had a conference call with the Ministry of Health, and they said that the first batch of such tests had already arrived in Ukraine. In the near future there will be an additional batch, and after that therefore, if any suspicious cases arise, we will send material for analysis to Kiev if the patient is suitable for a clinical case of coronavirus infection," - Pavlo Nartov said this.
Note that in Ukraine as of now, not a single case of coronavirus infection has been confirmed
As we reported, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky sent a letter of condolences to the Chairman of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinping regarding the deaths from the new pneumonia coronavirus.
