Since the beginning of the pandemic, 1,258,094 cases of Covid-19 have been reported in the country: and 1,098,944 people have managed to recover (+6,568 per day), 24,058 people (+124) have died from complications caused by the disease.
The largest numbers of confirmed cases were registered in Ivano-Frankivsk (482), Vinnytsia (392), Zakarpattia (368), Zhytomyr (367) oblasts, and the city of Kyiv (335).
As we reported earlier, Ukrainian pharmaceutical company Lekhim, the partner of Sinovac Biotech company, asked the Ukrainian government to let it delay the supply of the first batches of the Chinese vaccine.
The postponement is caused by the company's problems with obtaining the export license from the Chinese government and the Ukrainian Parliament's late approval of the law on the registration of vaccines.
"This resulted in the delay of the approval of the schedule of supplies between Lekhim and Sinovac Biotech, and re-scheduling the deadline of the vaccine supply in Ukraine," reads the message.
