"Despite the fact that a lot of people say that they have not been sick with coronavirus and have not experienced any similar symptoms, 43% of the population of Ukraine has antibodies," the doctor said.
According to her, such indicators are evidenced by data from epidemiological studies. Since the virus has been circulating for almost a year, many have encountered it and have an immune response from the body.
She also noted that during the pandemic, many doctors died. The increase in the incidence began after the children went to school, higher education institutions, settled in hostels, and then took the disease home.
As we reported earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated that the coronavirus vaccines received under the COVAX mechanism will not be enough to vaccinate the required number of Ukrainians. Therefore, he asked the European Commission to assist Ukraine in negotiations with producers.
"Volodymyr Zelensky also informed his interlocutor (President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, - ed.) That the vaccines allocated within the COVAX fund will not be enough to vaccinate the critical population in 2021. So, he called for more active involvement of the European Commission in Ukraine's negotiation process with its producers," the statement reads.
The head of state stressed that the acceleration of vaccine supplies could be a strong signal that "the EU is happy to see Ukraine at the table not only when everything is fine, but also in difficult situations."
