Due to rising incidence of COVID-19, deployment of second wave hospitals begins – Shmygal
In Ukraine, given the increase in the number of new cases of COVID-19, the deployment of second wave hospitals to receive patients with coronavirus begins.
This was announced by Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmygal in his Telegram channel.
“We are starting to deploy second wave hospitals to receive coronavirus patients. Today, another anti-registration has been registered – almost a thousand new cases. The workload of hospitals has increased considerably. This means that we have entered a serious morbidity wave, “said the Prime Minister.
He added that, according to Ukrainian doctors and epidemiologists, the main reason for the increased incidence of coronaviruses is that people have stopped complying with the restrictions and that the local authorities do not dare to reinforce these restrictions.
“As a result, we are seeing a significant increase in incidence in the affected areas,” said Shmygal.
The Prime Minister noted that a similar model of adaptive quarantine is used not only in Ukraine. “But in other countries, with the weakening of restrictive measures and compliance with the quarantine rules, the number of cases does not increase, but remains at a moderate level,” he said.
“Therefore, if we want to preserve the economy and not close the country to strict quarantine, the only way is to respect the restrictions proposed in the adaptive model together. These are masks, disinfection and social distance. . I ask everyone to be honest and responsible with respect to simple rules, “he said. Sniff.
