In 2021, Ukraine spent almost $1.3 billion from the state budget to fight Covid-19, the press center of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine reports.

"According to the preliminary data for the 11 months of 2021, UAH 34.7 billion [$1.28 billion] was spent on the fight against COVID-19," the message reads.

It is noted that $21.5 million from the state budget was spent to provide hospitals with oxygen, rapid tests, and consumables for testing. Almost $110.4 million was spent on measures to provide social support of the population in quarantine conditions; almost $662.7 million was spent to pay for emergency and inpatient care, as well as vaccinations; and almost $368.1 million was spent on vaccines.

$0.7 million was used for the implementation of measures to fight COVID-19 in educational institutions, and $0.8 million was spent on payment to institutions of the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine for services on hospitalization of patients with COVID-19.

Among other things, $29.5 million was spent on additional payments to the salaries of the National Guard and State Border Guard, civil protection bodies and units, police officers, medical and other employees of departmental healthcare institutions.

The WHO goal of vaccinating 40% of the adult population by the end of this year has now been met in Ukraine. At the same time, 70% of the adult population in Kyiv has completed the full course of vaccination, thus fulfilling the second goal of the WHO.

As of November 24, 13,000,632 people had received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine in Ukraine.

On December 15, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has decided to continue the adaptive quarantine until March 31, 2022, seeing as it is one of the most effective methods of coronavirus containment.
