In Ukraine, temporary medical screening centers for patients with COVID-19 have emerged.
This was reported in the official Telegram channel of the Ministry of Health Coronavirus_info.
“Such points are deployed throughout Ukraine on the territory of hospitals of the first wave of hospitalization. All patients with respiratory symptoms who go to a health facility (self-referral, doctor’s appointment or transport by the emergency medical team) must undergo a first medical screening before entering the admission service (emergency medical service), “the report said.
It should be noted that this will allow medical workers to distribute patients according to severity and to hospitalize only patients who need 24 hour medical supervision. Such a program will help reduce the risk of infection with hospital for other patients.
