President set a task to bring order to the medical support of ATO/JFO veterans

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy instructed Minister of Health of Ukraine Maksym Stepanov to bring order to the treatment of ATO/JFO veterans. This was noted by the Head of State during the traditional conference call, which took place under his chairmanship.

"We need to put in order military hospitals and medical care programs for our veterans. I make working trips around the regions and meet our heroes. They complain about the high cost of treatment, non-compliance with benefits programs or even lack of rehabilitation. Bring order to the operation of existing programs. If necessary - create new assistance. The results will come promptly, I'm sure," the President said.

In addition, the Head of State was informed about a positive trend in the dynamics of those recovered from COVID-19. Today there are 1016 cases of recovery and 819 new patients.

The Minister of Health noted that foreign experience, including the Spanish one, is being studied in response to the new challenges of reality related to the coronavirus pandemic. He added that in most countries there is a centralized control over compliance with quarantine measures, and stressed the danger of using political resources in manipulating quarantine on the ground.

The National Police of Ukraine reported that it has drawn up 194 reports for violating quarantine in public institutions.

In addition, the President was informed about extinguishing fires in the Luhansk region and supporting people suffering from floods in the western regions.

Minister of Infrastructure Vladyslav Krykliy noted that dishonest carriers, overloading of which was detected at the size-weight control complexes, have already paid fines in the amount of almost UAH 13.5 million.
