United States provides 15 Ukrainian hospitals with USD 1M worth of oxygen stations – embassy

The United States will provide USD 1 million worth of oxygen stations to 15 Ukrainian hospitals in 13 regions to treat COVID-19 patients as part of USAID’s HealthLink project.

The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine reported this on its Facebook page, Ukrinform reports.

"With USAID assistance, 15 Ukrainian hospitals in 13 regions are receiving oxygen stations worth USD 1 million to support the treatment of severe cases of COVID-19. These stations are already being installed in hospitals across the country through USAID’s HealthLink activity," the statement reads.

The embassy expects that the new oxygen stations will help better treat COVID-19 patients and ensure that hospitals are better equipped to provide quality healthcare after the pandemic.

At the same time, the diplomats reminded that USAID had provided USD 29 million as part of a broader US Government assistance package to help Ukraine respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As of February 24, Ukraine reported 1,317,694 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 5,850 new cases recorded over the past 24 hours.
