Thus, the number of Covid-19 patients in Ukraine reached 73,850 people. 1,764 have succumbed to the disease since the beginning of the pandemic (+26 in the last 24 hours). In total, 40,613 patients (+737 per day) managed to recover.
As we reported earlier, the scientists of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute believe that the spread of Covid-19 might be slowed down only in the result of the gradual emergence of herd immunity.
“Such a nature of the spread of the coronavirus might be slowed down only in the case of the gradual emergence of herd immunity of 60-70% of the population. Naturally, the process might take place in a year,” the message said.
The scientists supposed that the number of people infected with coronavirus will reach 110-115,000 people until the end of August 2020.
