"Now we have a hospitalization rate of 19. At the same time, in different regions, in Zakarpattia region, 29-31% of patients are hospitalized. When a patient's condition has stabilized, they may be transferred to outpatient treatment, thereby freeing up a hospital bed so that someone with complications could get medical care in hospital," he said.
