Ukraine reached a peak of COVID-19 incidence on April 17. Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko stated about it, Segodnya reports.

According to him, at this stage, Ukraine has reached a "plateau" in terms of morbidity.

"We were predicting a peak to be reached on April 14. It is estimated that we could have 41,000 patients by April 14. But we introduced quarantine in advance. If we take the retrospective dynamics and we do not have further growth, we already reached a peak on April 17. Since then, we have been in the range of 400-550 cases, and we have been in this diapason for 17 days," Lyashko said.
