307 people have been taken to hospitals during this period; 5 patients deceased and 187 recovered. 16,970 tests have been taken.
Most of the confirmed cases have been observed in Kyiv city (82), Odesa (18), Zhytomyr (18), Kyiv (12) and Kharkiv (10) regions.
Since the beginning of the pandemic in Ukraine, 2,244,677 people have contracted the disease, 2,181,385 have overcome it, 52,731 have succumbed to it.
Meanwhile, people who have been fully vaccinated with Pfizer shot have about 10 times higher antibody concentrations than those who have received inactivated vaccines like China’s CoronaVac, according to a new study published in The Lancet.
While measurement of antibodies may not be enough when it comes to mediating Covid-19 immunity, the researchers said “the difference in concentrations of neutralizing antibodies identified in our study could translate into substantial differences in vaccine effectiveness”.
For the study, the team enrolled 1,442 healthcare workers from public and private hospitals and medical clinics in Hong Kong and collected blood samples from them during three intervals — before vaccination, after the first dose, and after the second dose.
