The Ministry of Health of Ukraine considers the situation with Covid-19 in the country to be "quite tense". Such a position was expressed by ministry's head Maksym Stepanov on the air of ICTV TV channel, RBC-Ukraine reported.
"We regard the situation (with the coronavirus - 112 International.) as a challenging one," Stepanov said.
According to him, almost half of the beds provided for patients with COVID-19 are now occupied in Ukraine. Thus, as of the morning of September 21, 13,108 out of 30,000 beds were already occupied.
As we reported earlier, according to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic still tops a long list of global problems and remains out of control.
The diplomat noted that a Covid-19 vaccine was "no panacea in a pandemic."
“A vaccine alone cannot solve this crisis, certainly not in the near term. We need to massively expand new and existing tools that can respond to new cases and provide vital treatment to suppress transmission and save lives, especially over the next 12 months," he stated.
