He added that many other necessary safeguards had also been introduced and pointed out that there were currently enough PCR tests in the laboratories for this week and next week.
Tymoshenko also noted that in Ukraine all the companies that can make masks for the population are operating at full capacity, but this is extremely insufficient for Ukraine, which is why they launched the so-called “airlift” with China: and they provide various remedies. “
“We actually divide the entire load into three categories. The first is what we wear for the needs of the Ministry of Health in all health facilities – masks, respirators, glasses, etc. The second batch is what the socially responsible company that wants to help wears. We help this company with the planes. For example, thanks to Petr Alekseevich (Poroshenko – editor’s note), they bought 10,000 combinations – we helped with the planes. The third type is the freight for pharmacy chains, “said Tymoshenko.
He noted that drugstore chains pay for planes carrying commercial freight themselves and that the government is helping to arrange these flights as quickly as possible.
