There is a shortage of almost 50% of primary care physicians in the occupied territory of the Donetsk oblast. This fact was recognized by the so-called "Minister of Health of the DNR" Dmitry Gartsev on the air of one of the propaganda TV channels.
"There are not enough primary health care workers - therapists, pediatricians, there are not enough emergency medical workers. There is a shortage of personnel, but in general, we have about 50% staffing", - he said.
The fake "minister" noted that after the russian invasion of Ukraine, the workload of medical staff in the occupied part of the Donetsk oblast increased manifold.
