"Currently, Europe has become the epicenter of a pandemic, where more cases and deaths are recorded than in the rest of the world, with the exception of China. Now more cases of infection are reported daily than the numbers of people infected in China at the height of the epidemic," - the statement said.
It is noted that at present, WHO has received more than 132,000 cases of Covid-19 from 123 countries. 5,000 people died.
As we reported before, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky addressed Ukrainians regarding the country's complete closure of air traffic due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 112 Ukraine TV channel conducted the broadcast.
Three days later, Ukraine closes regular flights with other countries. Cargo checkpoints, air, rail, sea and road, will continue to operate.
“We will not wait for the official hundreds or thousands of patients. On the issue of life and health of Ukrainians, it cannot be early, it can be too late. That is why we are decisive and proactive,” - Zelensky said.
