The peak incidence of Covid-19 in Ukraine may begin from April 14-15, if urgent measures are not taken, as Deputy Minister of Health Viktor Lyashko stated.

"If we do not take more stringent restrictive quarantine measures, then we can expect a peak in the morbidity from April 14-15. This can lead to a large mass flow of patients, seriously ill patients to medical institutions and lead to a large number of negative consequences, in particular fatal ones," Lyashko said at a briefing on Saturday.
