The Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine reported that on the average, the course of coronavirus disease among Ukrainians lasts from 18 to 21 days. Minister Maksym Stepanov stated this at a daily meeting on preventing the spread of coronavirus in the President’s Office.
“On average, the course of the disease in Ukraine from the moment of detection to the negative PCR test, that is, recovery, lasts 18−21 days,” Stepanov noted.
The Minister added that all 11 patients who perished over the past day had serious concomitant diseases, in particular cardiovascular illnesses, diabetes mellitus, and lung problems.
As of the morning of April 29, 9,866 cases of infection with the coronavirus Covid-19 were detected in Ukraine. 456 of these were recorded over the last day. 250 fatal cases were observed.
As we reported before, a study by American scientists revealed that the new coronavirus is rapidly destroyed by sunlight. At the same time, this study has not yet been reviewed and is pending external evaluation.
