Ukraine has not overcome the coronavirus epidemic Up to 7,000 new cases of COVID-19 are detected daily.
Moreover, the new strain of coronavirus infection that is raging in China will also reach Ukraine.
This was stated by the head of the Verkhovna Rada committee on the health of the nation, medical care and medical insurance, Mikhail Radutsky, on the air of the telethon.
“Unfortunately, we have not overcome COVID-19 . People get sick. Those who apply for testing … Sometimes we find up to six, seven thousand new cases of “covid” per day. We are seeing very bad news today from the Republic of China, where a new strain is already brewing today. And despite the fact that, as before, after China, this strain appeared in Europe, we must understand that it will also come to us ,” Radutsky said.
The reason for such a large number of new cases of coronavirus disease among Ukrainians Radutsky called the fact that “many people at the front, and many people in the occupied territories, are now unable to take tests for coronavirus.”
He also added that Ukraine is provided with a medicine against covid.
“Yes, this is a new Pfizer drug, Minister Lyashko said that it is available in Ukraine. Remdesivir and everything else. Therefore, today it is easier for our doctors to fight this disease than two years ago. But I would still not forget the rules of social I understand that masks today are no longer very realistic, but at least social distance, hand washing, it won’t hurt anyone … And not only from COVID. Unfortunately, we didn’t win COVID-19, even if we really wanted to “, – said the deputy.
Recall that since March, China has been fighting the worst outbreak of COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic, due to the spread of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.
