Stepanov noted that 96,936 cases of Covid-19 infection had been detected in Ukraine the previous week. At the same time, the week before, 90,000 people were diagnosed with the disease.
"The situation remains quite tense. The number of patients is increasing, and as a result, the overall number of people taken to our hospitals is growing," he stated.
The official also believes that the introduction of a total lockdown could reduce the number of coronavirus cases in Ukraine to zero.
