People with coronavirus in Ukraine will be treated free of charge - if they are treated in municipal and state medical institutions. Minister of Health of Ukraine Zoryana Skaletska said that in an interview with Hromadske.

"All people who are in our medical institutions of communal and state ownership receive treatment free of charge. The medicines are not specific, they are not difficult to deliver. Now there are medicines in healthcare institutions," Skaletska said.

She explained that when it comes to influenza and coronavirus,  the World Health Organization recommends symptomatic treatment. However, all actions should be carried out according to the doctor’s recommendations.

“The request is not to self-medicate. Because most of the problems arise when a person turns up late and acute pneumonia and breathing problems begin,” the head of the Ministry of Healthcare said.
