The latest statistics showcase that restrictive measures imposed in the regions of Ukraine are giving positive results, and the dynamics of Covid-19 incidence in the cities that are currently assigned to the "red" zones are decreasing. Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal reported this to President Zelensky during a conference call, the press service of the President's Office reports.
The president also raised the issue of oxygen supply to hospital beds for patients diagnosed with coronavirus.
