8,899 cases of coronavirus infection have been observed in Ukraine over the past 24 hours, which is a new anti-record for daily incidence. Health Minister Maksym Stepanov wrote about this on his Facebook page.
Thus, 1,207 people have been hospitalized, 157 patients have succumbed to the disease, and 5,100 patients have recovered.
It was also reported that 60,836 tests had been performed, including 34,818 PCR tests.
Meanwhile, Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko said that there were no plans to test the American vaccine against coronavirus.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine's Health Ministry has developed the mechanism of involvement of extra medical workers in the treatment of patients with coronavirus on a contractual basis.
“Such a contract provides the sending to healthcare facilities, including those situated in the territory of other administrative and territorial units, where the deterioration of the epidemical situation is observed. The main important condition is that the medical worker keeps the main place of work and the average wage. In other words, the main employee tenure is not interrupted,” the statement said.
