According to the Ukrainian Embassy in China, 51 Ukrainians are registered in the consular register as living in Hubei Province, affected by the 2019-nCoV coronavirus epidemic. Our diplomats have no data on which of them left. And the Ukrainians write that they staying in Wuhan.
Irina Chuyko, a resident of Melitopol actively writes on her Facebook page how Wuhan city, where she studies, is experiencing an epidemic. “Now in Wuhan, 2 hospitals are being built at a super-pace, with a capacity of more than 2,000 beds. They are promised to be commissioned on February 2 and 5, respectively. Many do not believe that this is possible – but after living in China for more than 3 years and seeing the pace of construction here – I am sure that the Chinese will break this record. In other 59 hospitals of the city there are departments where patients with high fever are admitted. All hospitals working 24 hours work a day. Even our clinic has a 24/7 clinic, although we don’t have a single case of the disease either among students or among teachers,Shops working, no food problems .Masks are not available in all pharmacies – they are simply quickly sold out – I went to 2 pharmacies. One ended – bought in the next. The government severely punishes for speculating with masks and other medicines – you can call on a special telephone and violators will be fined a large amount.” Irina wrote on Wednesday.
The last message of Irina is dated January 29, about the increase in the number of cases. “Unfortunately, the number of patients with a confirmed diagnosis continues to grow. Official figures taken from the online epidemic monitoring platform. situation in China on the evening of January 29 – 6080 confirmed cases in the world, of which 3554 in the province of Hubei, 116 recoverd and 132 deaths. We believe in the best that the epidemic will decline and be completely defeated in the near future. ”
Ukrainian singer Yuri Lavrov, who has been living in China for seven years, uploaded a video in which he told how the country going through epidemic.
“In fact, there is no such terrible feeling at all for those who live here.
100 people died. Within China, this is all nonsense. In 2014 there was a virus, when the Chinese hid the whole topic with a flu outbreak – they did not want to make this information public, and many countries condemned them for it. This year, the Chinese showed how they are able to mobilize and control the situation in any conditions, People do not fall in the streets, the shops working.The only things that the authorities did- they closed all the entertainment venues – amusement parks, cinemas … The authorities took precautions and said that everyone should wear medical muzzle. so, Everyone began to put on muzzles. The Chinese are very committed people.Many Chinese people prefer not to leave their homes, so they sold out all the products,” Yuri said walking around the Chinese city without a medical muzzle.
There is no panic in Chinese cities, Student Victoria wrote :
“Are the Chinese afraid?” You know, I have a feeling that there is no longer fear, but a herd effect. And unfortunately with such as numbers, it works. There are enough people who do not care and they walk without masks. However, the Chinese support their country in the fight against this problem, and I believe that China will be able to win, this is one of the most powerful countries.I understand perfectly well that the media are spreading this news not for nothing, but for the purpose of weakening the economy and politics here. China is wounded, it’s true, but it will become stronger. I know the Chinese, these are people who can survive. Am i scared? I began to worry only when the media began to talk about it every day. My university has strict rules and at the moment, due to the fear of infection of students, we were limited in movement. Every day they measure the temperature in the dining room and in the evening. Hand out masks. China is struggling with this problem, the city of Wuhan is quarantined, the Chinese media publish security measures, the best doctors were sent to Wuhan. and already a large number of people are Cured.”
