Health Minister Viktor Lyashko stated when the new wave of coronavirus might start in Ukraine. The growth of infected people is predicted for the autumn-winter period of time as the minister stated during the briefing.
Meanwhile, Lyashko specified that the predictions toward the growth of infection cases do not consider the scenario, in case of which, the new strain of Covid-19 is determined in the territory of Ukraine.
Besides, the Health Minister explained why the quarantine is mitigated in Ukraine. According to him, if the strict restrictions are protracted, they will not be observed.
Earlier, the Institute of Mathematical Machines and Systems Problems of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine stated that the new wave of the coronavirus pandemic can start in Ukraine already by the end of summer if the Covid strain Delta will not be taken under control. It actively circulates in Russia.
