Kyiv broke an
unfortunate record on Jan. 21,
when 579 people sought medical treatment after falling on the streets. The next
day 573 people joined them. According to the city health department, that is
about four times more than trauma wards receive each day. 

The traumatology department of City Hospital No.1
told Kyiv Post that the department’s doctors could not comment because they are
overloaded by patients waiting in line for treatment.

Questions were raised among Kyivans about
how effective city services are when it comes to making sidewalks safe in
winter time. Local media shared Kyiv state administration head Olexander
Popov’s message, in which he asked citizens to be careful when walking the city
streets, and was heavily mocked by commentators.
