The EU plans to remove Ukraine from the list of countries that are considered safe for tourism - in view of the current Covid incidence. Rikard Jozwiak, the Brussels-based reporter of Radio Liberty posted that on Twitter.

"Ukraine is set to be removed from the EU's recommended safe third country COVID19 travel list later this week. It was added in mid-July but a spike in recent cases means that the country won't make the list any longer", he wrote.

The list is updated every two weeks.

Earlier, we reported that Ukraine observes an increasing incidence of Covid-19. The peak is yet expected to take place in the second half of October, and it's supposed to last until the middle of November. According to Ihor Kuzin, the Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine, the current Covid bed occupancy in hospitals makes 50-60 percent from the entire amount. 

Currently, there are five Ukrainian regions in the red quarantine zone. These are Zaporozhya, Odesa, Donetsk and Dnipropetrovsk regions.
