Ukraine is already at the peak of the current wave of coronavirus (COVID-19) disease, Minister of Health of Ukraine Viktor Liashko has said at a briefing on air of the Rada TV channel.
“We already have the peak incidence, because we record 41,000 cases a day,” the minister said.
He also added that during this COVID-19 wave, the number of cases is growing, but not the number of hospitalizations, which in turn reduces a burden on hospital care.
At the same time, according to Liashko, there is a large burden on primary medical care, so the Ministry of Health has taken management decisions that should reduce a burden on family doctors. The latest of these solutions is the introduction of remote calling in sick.
