On April 20, seven regions of Ukraine filed zero reports on polymerase chain reaction tests for April 19. Chief Sanitary Inspector of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko and leadership of the Healthcare Ministry dealt with this situation as Healthcare Minister Maksym Stepanov reported.

“Each and every laboratory in all regions worked; they worked as usual and did not have the break. These zeroes are tied with the fact that on Easter, many people did not appeal to doctors for holding of polymerase chain reaction tests. This situated is proved by the fact that we had no appeals on the hotline on refusal to hold polymerase chain reaction test,” the minister said.

“In the Chernivtsi region, 48 polymerase chain reaction tests were held; 17 confirmed cases spotted and they were included in the reports but the mistake was technical: a woman who filled our form put a zero. In the Vinnytsia region, where no cases are reported, the samples were taken but the thermocycler had to rest (lab equipment, which has a particular resource and works 24 hours) they did it in such a way. The HQ decided to provide a proper break,” the minister explained.
