17 people died from coronavirus in Ukraine but the virus was not the main reason for death at all cases as 112 Ukraine TV channel reported citing Deputy Healthcare Minister, Chief Sanitary Inspector of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko.
“Holding the analysis and considering each individual case, we can see that death occurs for other reasons. We pay attention that the majority of the lethal cases are registered among diseased with diabetes. We underlined once more that older people, especially with chronic diseases and with diseases, which suppress the immune system, are the largest risk group,” he said.
Lyashko noted that the majority of complications appear at this group and the disease is more severe and more lethal cases are spotted.
Deputy Healthcare Minister also added that the detailed information about each of 17 lethal cases would be published on the website of the ministry soon.
Earlier we reported that the number of people infected with coronavirus increased up to 669 in Ukraine.
As we reported, a cargo plane arrived in Ukraine from China. It carried 100,000 PCR tests for coronavirus, 40,000 glasses of multiple use, medical masks and the facilities for lung ventilators.
