Ukraine has changed the criteria for the "red zone" countries. At the same time, the rate of coronavirus incidence has been increased to 55 cases per 100 thousand population. This was stated by Ukraine’s Health Minister Maksym Stepanov during a session of the Cabinet of Ministers that was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
Thus, countries with a significant prevalence of the virus are those in which the number of active cases of coronavirus is more than 55 people per 100 thousand population.
"We previously had this figure at 40. We set it when the country had, respectively, the incidence of active patients 37 per 100 thousand population. Now it is 62. Thus, we are bringing it in line," Stepanov stated.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine is now one of the leaders among European countries in terms of the largest daily growth of Covid-19 cases.
Russia leads the way, with 6,422 new cases per day. Slovakia, Hungary, and Latvia close the top five, with +19, +5 and +4 cases per day, respectively.
