Expressing the hope that such teleconferences will continue, she said that Ukraine will be able to "get out of the epidemic with minimal losses."

Sergei Dubrov, president of the Association of Anesthesiologists of Ukraine, also highlighted the importance of studying China's experience, which he said would help Ukrainian doctors to effectively treat patients with the novel coronavirus.

"What happened today is very important for Ukrainian doctors, for our specialists as a whole, said Dubrov. "China has experience in how to choose a specific method of treating COVID-19 patients."

As of Tuesday, 97 cases of COVID-19 infection have been confirmed in Ukraine, with three deaths.
