During the last 24 hours, 7,986 new cases of coronavirus were observed in Ukraine. However, the number of those who recovered during this period reached 16,355. Healthcare Minister Maksym Stepanov reported that on Facebook.
"They haven't even applied", the official told Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad in the interview published on Tuesday.
According to him, European regulators only received certain information about the vaccine, which is not enough to "warrant a conditional marketing licence". "We need additional data about the quality of the vaccine. And after that, the company has to formally apply", Wathion stated.
He added that under these circumstances, it is unlikely that the drug will be approved next month.
