Illya Yemets, the Minister of Healthcare of Ukraine, leaves his office. Oleksiy Honcharenko and Oleksandr Dubinsky, the Ukrainian MPs, reported that on March 23.
"Today, Healthcare Minister Yemets will claim about his resignation", Dubinsky wrote on his Telegram channel.
Earlier, Yemets supported the emergency mode on the entire territory of the country. He said so on the air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"I said so since the very first day of my work in this government. It should have been done since the very beginning. If it was done, there would be no such spread that is now developing at an exponential rate", he claimed.
Currently, the emergency mode was introduced in some regions of Ukraine where coronavirus cases are observed. In general, 73 cases have been reported since the disease first reached Ukraine.
Earlier, Ukrainian cargo aircraft IL-76 landed in Boryspil international airport on early Monday. The plane arrived from Guangzhou, China, carrying 250,000 tests for Covid-19, the coronavirus. The press service of the Office of the President of Ukraine reported that on March 23.
There were two kinds of tests aboard: the PCR tests, and express diagnostics tests. There were also medical masks, sanitizers, lung ventilators and other devices to combat the spread of the disease. Express tests and masks are supposed to cover the needs of medics, military employees, police workers, members of the State Border Guard and others; they will also be used by urgent medical aid teams who check people with increased body temperature for coronavirus.
