Zelensky noted that the introduction of a lockdown in the country could completely stop the economy.
"The issues of additional medical equipment, medical support and the number of doctors are currently being given maximum efforts," the president said.
Zelensky also announced the production of Ukrainian vaccine against coronavirus. According to him, it has been developed for more than six months, and now it is being tested.
"We cannot talk about everything, because we have to undergo clinical trials, and this is true, we have no right. It is unique. This is not pathos or populism. It is unique because it is not like the others. I cannot speak today about the timing, but in any case, you must understand our approach: despite our Ukrainian vaccine, if anyone has a confirmed vaccine earlier, we will purchase anyway," he said.
Earlier, Zelensky said that a strict quarantine would be introduced in the country if the number of new coronavirus infected in Ukraine per day exceeded 9,500.
"The situation will become critical for the medical system of Ukraine when there are more than 9,500 daily infections with coronavirus. If we have more than 9500 infected daily, we will be forced to introduce strict quarantine. But then the economy of our country will stop and it will be very difficult for everyone."
