Coronavirus outbreak peak in Ukraine expected in early May

The Cabinet of Ministers expects that Ukraine may reach the peak of the coronavirus outbreak in early May.

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal told this to President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky at a traditional meeting on the issues of the fight against the Covid-19 disease, the president’s press service reported on Monday evening.

“During a meeting, the parties discussed in detail payments to doctors and medical staff currently involved in the fight against the disease spread. The additional payments will be transferred at the end of April, when doctors will receive basic salaries,” reads the statement on the president’s website.

The prime minister stressed that special anti-crisis measures would be introduced in Ukraine to support the economy.

Shmyhal also explained the reasons for the delay in receiving data on the number of coronavirus cases from seven regions. According to him, a technical error occurred in one of the regions, equipment was rebooted somewhere, but on the whole, many Ukrainians with suspicious symptoms decided not to go to the doctors at Easter. The government informed that all data would be included in the general statistics.

President Zelensky, in turn, thanked the National Guard for its assistance with discharging cargo from the airplanes delivering protection means.

"I am grateful to the Head of the National Guard and I would like you to convey my sincere gratitude to the whole personnel," he said.
