KIEV, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Sanitary and epidemiological situation stays normal in the center of Kiev, which is overwhelmed by opposition protests, the chief doctor of the Kiev City Health Center, Dr. Otto Stoyka told Itar-Tass on Wednesday. “Despite the chilly weather in Ukraine during the recent days, the flu rate ratio remained the same in Kiev and in Independence Square in particular”, he said.
“According to our register, no patients with colds or other diseases have been hospitalized from the square recently. The protesters did not ask for medical assistance, either”, added the doctor.
Dr. Stoyka told the media that protesters from the city’s major Khreshchatyk street had created their own medical assistance center, which collaborated mainly with private medical clinics. There are some ambulance vans on duty, provided by municipal authorities, but the riot participants basically rely on their own services - volunteer doctors and private healthcare facilities.
The doctor added that city healthcare services feared the freezing weather and harsh living conditions in the riot areas would lead to incidence growth. Nevertheless, there are no sources of epidemic danger registered up to now, except for the risks of catching a cold or frostbite.
