The first case of the Covid-19 coronavirus has been recorded in the Poltava region: a resident of Kremenchuk showed a positive result during the rapid test. This was stated by Kremenchuk Mayor Vitalii Maletskyi on his Facebook page.
"Unfortunately, there is the first positive express test for Covid-19 in Kremenchuk. A woman, 75, with a previous diagnosis of pneumonia, has not traveled abroad lately. We are now taking all necessary measures and establishing a circle of people who have been contacted the woman. We have sent samples of analyzes to the reference laboratory in Kyiv in order to get the confirmation of the diagnosis," Maletskyi said.
He also noted that two more samples of the patient's blood would be tested by other express tests of other manufacturers. However, the official results will be known only after a laboratory study in Kyiv is conducted.
As we reported earlier, nearly 7,000 citizens are expected to come back to Ukraine today, on March 27.
"In total, about 40 flights are expected to arrive today, which is about seven thousand passengers," the correspondent of 112 Ukraine TV Channel said.
