The head of the Ministry of Health said this at a briefing on Saturday, September 5.
«Today we have 26,000 beds for the treatment of COVID-19 patients. At the same time we add more hospitals that are included in the treatment process. This is plus 9,000 beds. That is readiness – 35 thousand beds“, – said Stepanov.
He also noted that in the areas most affected by coronavirus, the number of occupied beds exceeds 50 percent. And in Odessa and Chernivtsi regions 65 and 69% respectively.
