The doctor noted that Ukraine had not yet been able to identify this virus in the process of mass testing.
"One of the examples is my patient Mykola. He is a worker, travels from Ukraine to the Czech Republic and back. And he has already contracted a new strain of coronavirus, which was reported by the United Kingdom. As for the verification of this strain, Ukraine is unable to identify the virus during the process of mass testing. Nevertheless, people who have insurance in the EU can already do it. Even so, I was able to confirm that Zakarpattia has already faced this new type of coronavirus," he said.
Petrov added that the mutation of the virus occurred naturally.
As we reported earlier, WHO Emergency Relief Coordinator Michael Ryan is convinced that a new version of the virus can be brought under control.
