In seven regions of Ukraine there is a slowdown in the rate of hospitalization of critically ill patients with Covid-19 after the tightening of quarantine restrictions. These are Volyn, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhia, Luhansk, Kherson, Kharkiv and Chernivtsi regions. This was stated by the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal during a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers.
"Most regions of Ukraine remain in the "red" quarantine zone, but experts and doctors are beginning to record the first signs of stabilization. This can already be seen in the number of new cases, the number of hospitalizations, especially in those regions that were the first to enter the "red" zone. Over the last three days, we have seen a slowdown in the dynamics of hospitalizations in Volyn, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhia, Luhansk, Kherson, Kharkiv and Chernivtsi regions," Shmyhal said.
At the same time, Shmyhal noted that the situation with the coronavirus remains difficult. Of the more than 76,000 hospital beds allocated for Covid patients, almost 52,000 are occupied. In intensive care units, almost 98-99% of patients are unvaccinated citizens.
