Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky urged citizens to comply with quarantine rules because 25 to 50% of the domestic medical system Covid-19 simultaneously sick can not stand.
The head of state said so in his video message.
“Today there are three scenarios. The first. Three to five percent of patients with coronavirus simultaneously. These are painful figures. But such a scenario is not a disaster. Therefore, we must be gathered and disciplined: continue self-isolation, respect the rules of hygiene and not go out unnecessarily. Then we will survive this storm, ”said Zelensky.
According to him, in the second scenario, the incidence of Covid-19 is predicted at 25% in Ukraine, in the third – the incidence of more than 50% of patients with coronovirus simultaneously is predicted.
“The second and even more so the third scenario – our medical system will not survive. Our doctors will not resist the simultaneous influx of so many patients. Everyone must realize: quarantine is not a vacation. Sunny weather, parks, beaches, barbecue – it will all wait. This is nothing compared to his own health and his own life, ”said Zelensky.
