Earlier, scientists of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine claimed that the new wave of Covid-19 could have devastating consequences for this country. According to experts, after some inhibition in late August 2021 and early September 2021, the growth rate of the number of patients significantly exceeded last year's figures. Meanwhile, a similar trend was demonstrated by the number of new fatalities. Therefore, scientists suggest that the continuation of this trend will indicate that a new wave of coronavirus is likely to have grave consequences.
