On the fifth day, it will be necessary either to close the sick leave, or to come for an examination to the doctor so that he develops further treatment tactics.
Minister of Health Viktor Lyashko said that in Ukraine they decided to return to the issuance of electronic sick leave remotely without visiting a medical worker.
He stated this on the air of the Freedom of Speech program on the ICTV channel.
