Today, authorities and society are facing the evolution of the coronavirus epidemic.
This opinion was expressed in an interview with Ukrinform by an immunologist, associate professor of the department of infectious diseases of children and immunology of children NMAPE named after P.L. Shupika Fedor Lapiy.
“If you answer the question of whether the authorities are doing well, then yes rather than no. If we say if the company manages, then more is yes than not. If we talk about medicine .. I tend to believe that medicine copes. In this assessment, we are guided by the number of patients we could have (and not have) in terms of occupancy of mechanical ventilation devices. According to official data, approximately 9-10% of the ventilators, which were intended for patients with COVID-19, are occupied. It is our shared success, ”said Lapiy.
