According to the mayor, as for today, 1,437 Kyiv citizens passed express tests and laboratory analyses. Over 30 samples are currently tested for the presence of the coronavirus

“I want to appeal to the law enforcement bodies to strictly control the observation of the legal procedures by the private clinics. As some of them hold express tests for coronavirus and do not pass the positive results to the state bodies. And we get them from Germany or do not get them at all. I believe it is unacceptable,” he added.  

As of Thursday morning, March 26, 156 cases of coronavirus have been officially confirmed in Ukraine.
