KIEV, December 19 (Itar-Tass) —— As many as 37 people have died of exposure to cold and 190 have sought medical help over frostbites in Ukraine since December 1, 2012, Ukraine’s emergency medicine centre said on Tuesday.
As many as 162 people who sought medical help were hospitalized.
Weather forecasts however say air temperatures will go further down. The frosty weather will stay for at least a week. In some of Ukraine’s eastern regions, air temperatures have dropped to 28 degrees below zero. “We do not expect heavy snow until December 22. We expect occasional bouts of light snow, or sleet in the Crimea,” said Nikolai Kulbida, director of Ukraine’s meteorological centre.
