The Ukrainian army has confirmed 29 new coronavirus cases over the past day, bringing the total number to 287, according to the press service of the Medical Forces Command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

"As of 10:00 on August 7, the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported 287 cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Since the beginning of the pandemic, 668 people have recovered and five died. Some 554 people have been placed in isolation (including self-isolation). For 126 servicepersons, isolation will end within the next three days,” reads the report.

Over the past week, an increase in COVID-19 cases has been observed in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which is connected with both a worsening epidemiological situation among the civilian population of Ukraine and an increase in the number of tests carried out.

The Medical Forces Command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces urges to abide by the quarantine rules and personal hygiene.

As of August 7, Ukraine reported 78,261 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 1,852 deaths and 43,055 recoveries. Some 1,453 new cases were confirmed in the previous day.
