“The state of a man is stable. He has a fever but no pneumonia. The medical staff pays special attention to him. We understand that the disease is not simple, and we will monitor him closely,” Hopko said.
According to her, the infected stays in a special isolated room.
“The room provides no contact of virus with other patients who stay in the infections unit. Doctors and other medical staff who come to his room follow all demands of the protection,” she explained.
The samples of the patient from the Chernivtsi region will be sent to London for research.
Local official Maria Polishchuk noted that a couple turned out to be very responsible and knew how to act in the cases of symptoms.
“They called the ambulance, introduced themselves, said that they came from Italy, doctors transported them in necessary personal protective equipment. Currently, man is provided with aid in the infectious unit; he is isolated. The close contact is one. It is his wife who traveled with him; she is in the self-isolation. In other words, the family is really responsible,” Polishchuk noted.
Moreover, 35 people were also isolated. They will stay in the observation for 14 days. All of the patients stay in different places ‘not to make panics’. They will be controlled by doctors. A man had a fever and cough. He reported his state to a doctor.
