Zelensky: Ukraine gets through first wave of pandemic relatively well

President Volodymyr Zelensky considers that Ukraine has managed to get through the first wave of coronavirus pandemic relatively well.

"We actually managed to get through the first wave of the pandemic relatively well. This was facilitated by both the responsibility of Ukrainians and the deterrence strategy, which we developed in detail and carefully changed as needed. Now we have the experience, understanding and endurance if the second wave comes. I hope that humanity will be better prepared then," the President said at a traditional conference call on combating the spread of coronavirus, the press service of the Head of State informs.

The President was told that adaptive quarantine had been introduced in all but three regions of Ukraine: Lviv, Rivne and Chernivtsi. The transition to the third phase of mitigation of restrictive measures has taken place almost everywhere.

The participants of the meeting said that no significant outbreaks of the disease had occurred in the country since the introduction of quarantine mitigation. In addition, Ukraine has a plateau of morbidity. Over the past 24 hours, 388 people have recovered and 328 have been infected.

In addition, Minister of Health Maksym Stepanov said that almost all hospitals had signed agreements with the National Health Service of Ukraine, and allowances for doctors for the fight against COVID-19 were already being transferred. Large batches of medicines against various diseases, purchased in previous years, are currently being supplied.

Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Ruslan Khomchak said that the first checkpoints on the delimitation line in the JFO area were being prepared for opening after June 10.
