If necessary, the Region is ready to share the experience of special medical examination of citizens and to ensure sanitary conditions of the highest standard to prevent the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus

A week ago, the Odesa region faced the risk of the penetration of a coronavirus into Ukraine. On February 13, the port of Odesa received a three-meter CMA CGM URAL container ship from China, on which crew members were ill.

«I am proud of the residents of Odesa region who did not want to deploy sailors to other ports and did not block entrances to the berth. The highest professionalism was demonstrated by the employees of the port quarantine service.

Doctors in special suits inspected the crew and the ship. At the ready was a special quarantine isolator. No coronavirus was detected in any of the seamen and crew. We are ready to welcome our fellow citizens if other regions cannot. The Odesa region is ready to fully provide medical care and epidemiological safety, ”said the Head of Odesa Regional State Administration Maksym Kutsyi.
