Currently, Ukraine is not considering the possibility of using Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine. This was announced by the Minister of Health Maksym Stepanov.

"We do not consider the use of the Russian vaccine in our vaccination plan today. We have signed an agreement for the supply of a vaccine produced by the Chinese pharmaceutical company Sinovac Biotech, which is one of the largest vaccine manufacturers in the world," Stepanov said.

The minister added that negotiations with other companies have practically ended.

Also, according to him, a vaccination plan has now been approved and it consists of five stages.

"At the first stage - medical workers who primarily work in hospitals providing care for patients with Covid-19. These are people who are in specialized institutions, such as retirement homes. That is, the category of the population that is most at risk. The second stage includes people from occupational risk groups, from different age and various diseases," Stepanov said.

As we reported earlier, over the last 24 hours, Ukrainian doctors confirmed 4,846 new cases of Covid-19, including 168 children and 176 healthcare workers.

2,411 people have been taken to hospitals during this period; 80 patients deceased, and 7,961 recovered. 26,494 tests have been taken.
