The 5th day of the observation started with a doctors’ round. They were joined by Health Minister, Zoriana Skaletska. – It is very cold here! Why?
– We have opened a window. The temperature is measured, and general examination is held. Doctors say that stress can provoke flare-up of a chronic condition. The state of health is satisfactory. There is one hypertensive person with the pressure compensated to the norm, and slight temperature increase in one patient – high normal. There are no respiratory abdominal symptoms. Psychological state of the evacuees is taken care of separately. Later, closer to the end of the observation period, we will understand who need to talk to a psychologist. There are volunteers trained to hold phone talks, provide psychological support. We will organize it and provide phone numbers very soon. Particular attention is paid to the children.
They have books and toys here. Education: we have books with us, so we study a little. – This is like holidays?
– They have been extended a little, the school is waiting. 8-year-old Sashko plays chess with his father and reads books. The Ukrainians in observation have gotten a lot of those. However, sending food is restricted.
All of you can support the evacuees with letters. Now, I will read one of the letters sent by people to us here, the medical center of the National Guard. Dear fellow countrymen, welcome home, let all negative emotions from negative events disappear and positive spring emotions win. Oksana.
