Ukrainians will be able to call an ambulance for those sick with Covid-19, using the services of a new contact center for fighting coronavirus. Maksym Stepanov, the Healthcare Minister of Ukraine said so at the online briefing.
"Starting tomorrow, November 26, we're running this function in the test mode, and then, we'll switch to the regular mode - so that a person can order the call for a mobile crew via the contact center", he said.
The official explained that all medical facilities have been united for that matter.
Later, the function of consultation with the family doctor will be added to the list of services, Stepanov said.
As we reported, the Ukrainian government could opt for a winter holiday quarantine. Denys Shmygal, the Prime Minister said so during the Cabinet session on Wednesday.
"Yesterday, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky shared the important initiatives of support of people and business if the quarantine is boosted. Let me be clear: we're preparing for all possible scenarios, including the possible introduction of the quarantine for winter holidays", Shmygal said.
