A Ukrainian has recovered from the Chinese coronavirus. The woman is one of the passengers of Diamond Princess cruise ship, which is now under a quarantine in Japan. The lady was treated at a hospital, and then transferred to a hotel.

Spokesman of Ukraine's Foreign Ministry Kateryna Zelenko reported that another three Ukrainians still need treatment.

Meanwhile, Ukraine's Interior Ministry showed the press a helicopter that they plan to use to transport those possibly infected with the virus. It has a sanitizing shower, biochemical protection suits and an isolation cell onboard.  It appeared that the Mi-8 helicopter was used during the UN peacekeeping  operations. And now, Ukraine's State Emergency Service will be able to use it. The helicopter can host a flight crew, several medics and up to six potential patients.
