President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has given the task of transferring the activity of the operational staff on prevention of the coronavirus spread throughout the territory of Ukraine, which operates under the Ministry of Health, to the level of the Cabinet of Ministers, creating a relevant working group. This was reported by the press service of the President’s Office.
The head of state emphasized that the situation with the spread of the virus was completely under control and was constantly in the field of his attention. Currently, no cases of infection have been reported in Ukraine and there are no grounds for any emergency measures.
All the necessary resources are involved, the government has all the information in its entirety. Ongoing monitoring of the spread of the new coronavirus abroad is underway, and preventative measures are being carried out domestically.
As we reported earlier, the plane, which evacuated Ukrainians from Chinese island Hainan (over 1,500 km from Wuhan, where the epidemic of new coronavirus started), landed in Boryspil International Airport near Kyiv as Hromadske informed.
Thus, 158 Ukrainians returned from Sanya, the popular city. They said that there is no panic on the island concerning the spread of coronavirus in China; however, people are wearing masks and bought most goods from the pharmacy and shops.
