Forty-three people fell victims to freezing temperatures that hit Ukraine in the past few days, the country’s Emergencies Ministry said on Wednesday.

Twenty-eight people were found dead in the street, eight died in hospitals, and seven at home, the ministry said in a statement.

The mercury in Ukraine fell to less than -20 degrees Celsius (-4 Fahrenheit) at the weekend and the temperature is expected to fall further to at least -30 degrees Celsius (-22 Fahrenheit) over the next few days.

As more than 720 Ukrainians have been hospitalized due to hypothermia, the government moved to arrange special points for citizens to warm themselves. Some 1,700 such points have been opened across the country.
