The number of people across the world who have contracted COVID-19 has exceeded 2 million. WHO warns that we will be dealing with the consequences of the pandemic for decades to come. Crisis phenomena in the world can be observed in different areas, but the highest burden is placed on health care. Some countries manage to purposefully exit the COVID-19 crisis. Ukraine cannot claim success yet, because the pandemic years have only exposed the shortcomings of the health care system.

The scale of the disaster has mobilized medical professionals who have been working overtime since the beginning of the pandemic, and volunteers have mobilized to help. But how long will the enthusiasm and resources of volunteers and medics last? How is government policy to overcome the pandemic implemented? And what can each of us do to defeat COVID-19?
