The meeting was dedicated to the possibility of deliveries of domestic-made ventilation devices to the hospital. Now the technical parameters of the devices of two Ukrainian companies are being checked, and if their quality indicators correspond to foreign equipment, Ukrainian hospitals will receive hundreds of devices in the coming weeks.

"The cost of such ventilators is several times less than foreign equipment. We can better provide our doctors and save more lives," the president said.

As we reported before, President Volodymyr Zelensky has promised to pay at least a million dollars to the inventors of the vaccine against the coronavirus Covid-19.

“I’ll tell you a secret. The president asked me to write letters to our academics and promised that if someone invents a vaccine or medicine, I will receive, I don’t know from which fund, at least a million dollars,” Lyashko said.
