On Wednesday, June 23, Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council will urge an extra session. The authority will be discussing the spread of Delta, the Indian strain of coronavirus, which is considered currently the most contagious kind of the disease in the world. Mykhailo Radutsky, the Head of Parliamentary Committee for National Health reported that on his Telegram channel.
"Ukrainians are tired of the quarantine, but the situation is truly threatening", Radutsky wrote.
According to him, there's a big risk that the wave of Delta strain will reach Ukraine; the WHO has observed this particular kind of disease in 92 countries worldwide, and Ukraine still has none of its own test systems for detection of this strain.
He claimed that the government needs to speed up the vaccination rate and to resume the procedure of obligatory PCR tests after the border crossing.
