Ministry of Health of Ukraine encourages people to fight against the "panic virus". This is stated in the Ministry’s message on its Telegram channel.
"Due to a three-week quarantine in Ukraine that is introduced in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the population is beginning to feel panic. But you should remember that the 'panic virus' is more terrible than a coronavirus infection. Take care of your mental and physical health," the statement said.
As of now, there is no information on the exact number of coronavirus infected people in Ukraine. However, according to Ukraine's Deputy Ministry of Health, it has increased.
As we reported earlier, the Minister of Health, Illya Yemets, is asking the Verkhovna Rada to introduce a state of emergency due to the spread of coronavirus in Ukraine.
On March 23, the Ukrainian government made a decision to introduce a state of emergency in Donetsk, Ternopil and Cherkasy. Such measures were taken in order to prevent the spread of Covid-2019.
Currently, the emergency situation is imposed in nine regions of Ukraine.
