Kherson medics get surprise tulips from canceled flower festival (Video)
Farmers in Ukraine's Kherson region have come up with a nice way to show appreciation to local medics fighting the novel coronavirus.
Having teamed up with local volunteers, they delivered loads of tulips and daffodils to local hospitals to cheer up health care workers, TSN reported.
The flowers were taken from the "Little Holland" festival canceled over the COVID-19 quarantine.
Almost half a million tulips in Kherson region's village of Liubymivka are blooming without tourists being able to see them this year.
Farmers hope tourists will be able to enjoy the next festival with blooming lilies and lavenders this summer and crocuses in the fall
Earlier, Ukrainian Health Minister Maksym Stepanov said Easter celebrations from home on April 19 might curb the coronavirus spread across Ukraine.
