As we reported earlier, according to Head of the National Medical Chamber of Ukraine Serhiy Kravchenko, herd immunity might stop the coronavirus pandemic in Ukraine only when two-thirds of the population has the immunity to the disease.

“To influence the intensity of the spread of the disease that is the main rate, at the first stage we need to have one-third of the population with immunity. To overcome the pandemic in general, we need at least two-thirds of the population with proper immunity. It is better if we have over 70%,” he noted.
