Deputy Minister of Health, the state’s chief medical officer of health, Viktor Lyashko, on a work trip to the Ternopil region, said that Ukrainian doctors had changed the coronavirus diagnostic algorithm.
This was reported by the T1 Novini channel.
“The doctors who now diagnose Covid-19 by PCR have also changed the algorithm – they are also selecting materials from those with pneumonia. We approved a new treatment protocol, which is not based on evidence-based medicine, but on practical experience, the practices acquired in countries where they have already battled the coronavirus, ”said Lyashko.
He added that the Ministry of Health has determined a list of medical specialties that will receive supplements – 300%. In this context, according to Lyashko, it is worth supporting the initiative of the community of Ternopil, where all the doctors involved in the fight against Covid-19 decided to pay 10,000 UAH. monthly.
