Ukraine managed to prevent the Italian scenario from repeating during the coronavirus epidemic. Chief sanitary doctor of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko stated this on his Facebook page.

“We tried to prevent a recurrence of the situation in Italy, which had to introduce sorting of people and determine who gets medical care to and who doesn't. And we succeeded. 2 months of quarantine yielded results. We have the opportunity to provide medical assistance, including resuscitation measures, to everyone who needs it," he said.

Lyashko noted that the quarantine was introduced in Ukraine to ensure the ability of the healthcare system to respond to cases of coronavirus disease.

"If we did not have the quarantine, then emergency medical care would have to make a choice - to assist a 40-year-old or 70-year-old," Lyashko said.
