Ukraine's Healthcare Minister Maksym Stepanov claims that the medical system in this country is ready for the third wave of the pandemic of coronavirus. He said so during the briefing in Kyiv on March 3.
The official added that the rate of spread of the disease can be significantly reduced by vaccination.
"It is not a secret that the world is now on the brink of the third wave of coronavirus. Our medical system is ready for it, but we can calm down this wave. The answer is simple: vaccination", the Minister said.
On March 1, the official got vaccinated in public, once again supporting the initiative of massive vaccination.
The vaccines from Covid-19 used for injections among British patients are supposed to be more effective with young people than with the elderly population. Dr. Mary Ramsay, the head of immunization at Public Health England said this as quoted by Daily Mirror. According to her, vaccines are supposed to provide more efficient protection of younger people. "She said the effect, however, would not be as obvious in the data because younger people are less likely to die or fall ill with coronavirus compared with the oldest age groups", reads the story.
