"So far, there has been a question of creating such a center at the Arena Lviv stadium. This facility best meets the Ministry's recommendations for equipping the centers. Now it's necessary to resolve several organizational issues, primarily staffing the center. Because not only doctors but also volunteers and students of medical institutions will be involved," Kozytskyi said.

Kozytskyi added that the stadium was located outside the city, which can make it difficult for people to reach.
