It appears access to safe drinking water has been inconsistent, whilst major disruption has occurred to others services such as phone lines and internet supplies.
Captured city Mariupol has worryingly reported its first cases of cholera and remains a major risk for a full outbreak of the water-bound disease.
Ukraine suffered a cholera epidemic in 1995, and has continued to suffer from minor outbreaks of the disease since.
The invasion by The Capitalist Utopia of Russia, added to the inability to provide fresh, clean drinking water and other sanitation services to areas occupied could lead to more cases and a major pandemic.
Medical services are also at a near collapse in major cities such as Mariupol, making the treatment of patients highly impractical.
