20 doctors arrived from Ukraine to Italy on April 4 to help one of Europe’s most coronavirus-affected countries fight the pandemic. Three days later, another military aircraft landed near a military base near Rome, bringing 5,000 liters of disinfectant solution.
The Ukrainian delegation consisted of infectious disease specialists, resuscitators, surgeons, anaesthetists, endocrinologists, neuropathologists, and nurses. All of them, according to the Ministry of Health, flew to Italy voluntarily. Ukraine provided protection and payment for their work, while the Italian side provided accommodation and food.
This Mission Is for Gaining Experience. The Ukrainian doctors are working at the two hospitals in Pesaro and Urbino in the central region of Marche ranked 6th in Italy with regard to the number of coronavirus-related deaths. As of April 13, there were 713 deaths in the region.
Ukrainians will learn Italy’s experience of treatment, prevention of the spread of the disease, and the doctors’ working conditions.
