Ukraine is just beginning to enter the peak of the coronavirus wave. In the future, the number of victims from Covid-19 may exceed a thousand people every day as Secretary of the National Security and Defense Center of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov reported during the briefing.
“We are now just starting to enter the peak of the coronavirus. The big problem today is that people who are not vaccinated end up in hospitals. Today we have the record for Covid deaths. This is a very dire situation. The number of people who will die from Covid can exceed a thousand people," he said.
According to Danilov, mostly people, who have not been vaccinated against coronavirus, die in Ukraine.
“Those who go to cemeteries are people who have not been vaccinated. This is 99.9% of people who have not been vaccinated. If further, someone wants to send their relatives and loved ones there, you can continue to pretend that this is not necessary," he added.
As we reported, over the last 24 hours, Ukrainian doctors confirmed 23,785 new cases of Covid-19, including 1,800 children and 391 healthcare workers. 614 people died from the complications caused by the infection.
