"In Ukraine, we see a gradual growth, and it reflects the dynamics that we had in 2020. Therefore, if you look at this dynamics, despite the fact that these are other strains, we can talk about a greater increase in the number of cases in winter period. And since for flu, flu-like diseases for Ukraine, growth is more typical (in the period) mid-October - November and early December, then the second wave is February and March," the minister explained.
