There are no conditions and means for the treatment of people diseased with coronavirus or for maintaining quarantine in Novi Sanzhary, where people evacuated from Chinese Wuhan were hosted, as local council stated.

“The infrastructure should be created for diseased with coronavirus and those who contacted such people; infrastructure, which corresponds to the norms of the anti-epidemic regime at the level of the state. We do not have such infrastructure in our region. The hospital in Novi Sanzhary is not provided by necessary equipment and medication and it is not ready to provide the full-fledged medical assistant for treatment of the diseased with coronavirus,” the appeal of the lawmakers of the village council states.

The lawmakers stated that the situation jeopardizes the health and lives of the village citizens and they demand from top officials to assume urgent measures toward the non-admission of the accommodation of people evacuated from China in Novi Sanzhary medical center.

“Considering the opinion of the local community, we, the deputies of Novi Sanzhary village council, in order not to admit the infiltration and spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus infection in the territory of Novi Sanzhary village, considering the absence of the specialized healthcare establishment intended for temporary isolation of potentially infected people (quarantine), are strongly against the accommodation of citizens of Ukraine and foreigners evacuated from Wuhan city in unequipped Novi Sanzhary medical center,” the message reads.
