In Ukraine, the general number of Covid-infected people exceeded 337,000. Over the last 24 hours, medics confirmed new 7,014 cases. The National Security and Defense Council reported that on October 24.
The number of lethal cases observed since the beginning of pandemic made 6,289 people (+125 per 24 hours); 139,755 recovered, as repeated lab tests did not reveal the virus in their bodies. The number of active cases of Covid-19 in Ukraine makes 191,366.
As we reported earlier, the list of quarantine zones in Ukraine has been refreshed. Kyiv remained in the orange zone. The new zoning will become active since October 26.
Also, president of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky supports increasing responsibility for breaching the rules of the quarantine in the country.
"I guess our people relaxed too much. I understand they got tired of Covid, and it's understandable. But it's just wrong not to wear the mask. There should be changes in the legal frameworks in terms of fines. I believe it's a right thing to do - a person should be aware he/she could be fined for not wearing the mask - instead of this protocol procedure stuff, when the policeman makes a report, and then the court looks into it," Zelensky said.
