5,231 new cases of coronavirus have been observed in Ukraine for over 24 hours. This is mentioned in the report of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.
Since the pandemic began in Ukraine, 298,872 citizens have been diagnosed with Covid-19. 5,607 of these people deceased (+90 per 24 hours), and 125,377 recovered (+1,264).
As we reported earlier, Japanese Ambassador to Ukraine Takashi Kurai promised that in the near future Ukraine will receive an experimental Japanese drug Favipiravir (Avigan), which can help in the treatment of coronavirus.
He noted that 12 200 tablets will be allocated for Ukraine.
At the same time, the ambassador stressed that favipiravir in Japan has not yet been officially recognized as a cure for COVID-19. But Japan provides it free of charge to countries that are willing to jointly conduct this clinical trial and share its results. At the same time, the Japanese authorities do not require Ukraine to participate in a clinical trial when supplying an experimental drug.
