But I insist that special attention be paid to doctors and medical structures. Calls must be checked, answered. The medical situation must be established urgently. Step by step, ”said Zelensky.
The president heard reports on the situation in the Ternopil region, where there were problems with the increased number of infected doctors and the non-payment of salaries. Health chief Viktor Lyashko said the money for the payments had been found and they would start paying them soon.
