People in the occupied city of Mariupol are experiencing high temperatures and coughing, signaling the onset of an epidemic
Mariupol, in the Donetsk region and occupied by Russian troops, is on the verge of an epidemic. Over the past four weeks, the number of patients with viral infections has increased in the city.
Mariupol residents are increasingly seeking medical attention with complaints of high fever, severe cough, and other symptoms. This was reported by the Mariupol City Council on its official Telegram channel.
The occupiers have not yet reported whether this situation is related to the outbreak of SARS or the COVID-19 coronavirus infection.
Hospitals in Mariupol have not been prepared for the spread of infectious diseases, especially for patients with COVID-19. Medical facilities lack the necessary medicines and equipment.
"Due to the low level of medicine in the occupation, the incidence is growing. Therefore, an epidemic is possible in the city," the city council said.
As a reminder, people in Mariupol are being actively recruited for the war against Ukraine. For this purpose, even hospitals have been 'militarized' - posters have been hung there, agitating to sign contracts with the Russian Defense Ministry.
As OBOZ.UA reported, the incidence of COVID among children in Kyiv has increased by 50%. This happened after the holidays ended, and schoolchildren returned to school.
