During the month of temperature screening, more than 2.7 million citizens were checked at the borders of Ukraine, and only 52 of them had fever. This was reported by the press service of Interior Ministry on its Facebook page.
According to the head of the State Border Guard Service, Serhii Deineko, the detection rate of passengers with high temperature is too low.
"This indicates that people are taking antipyretic drugs before crossing the border, and we cannot detect people who do not have clear symptoms," Deineko said.
In total, according to the head of the State Border Guard Service, about 200 thousand compatriots have returned to Ukraine during March.
As we reported earlier, as of Thursday morning, on March 26, 156 cases of coronavirus were officially confirmed in Ukraine.
"According to the Center of Public Health, as of 10:00, on March 26, there are 156 laboratory-confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Ukraine, including five deaths, one patient has recovered and has already been discharged from hospital," the message reads.
