The Ministry of Health of Ukraine stated that it works closely with the World Health Organization to combat Covid-19, including the piloting of new interventions. One of the proposals received from the WHO is the use of special software to automatically track the percentage of compliance or non-compliance with anti-epidemic requirements.

It's about the application or new, or already active video cameras, which will be connected to automated software that will be able to issue the final indicators of compliance with distancing, use of masks, use of sanitizers etc..

It is important to note that the use of such software will not allow any person to be identified and/or penalized.

This pilot project, which is planned to be launched in large cities - currently Kyiv and possibly Dnipro or Kharkiv - will be launched after receiving the conclusion of the bioethical examination of the WHO office.

Based on the results of the pilot project, a decision will be made on the feasibility of further dissemination of such experience.

As it was reported, Chief Sanitary Officer Ihor Kuzin announced in September that special cameras would be installed in shopping malls during the quarantine period, which would show whether people wear masks and adhere to the recommended distance of 1.5 m in public places.

As we reported, 19,455 new cases of coronavirus were confirmed in Ukraine during the past 24 hours. Particularly, 700 people died.
