"As to the fatality rate, it is the lowest in the world. We can be proud of our doctors and our actions that lead to such indicators," Stepanov said at a briefing, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
He noted that the coronavirus fatality rate is more than 9% in France, more than 11% in the UK, about 4% in Germany, and about 3% in the USA.
According to Stepanov, more than 90% of people that died of the coronavirus in Ukraine were over 50 years old, and about 80% of them had pre-existing condition.
The health minister has added that the coronavirus fatality rate in Ukraine has decreased by 30% since the start of April. It totaled 3% in early April, while now it is 2.1%. In particular, the decline was due to the actions taken in the country to combat the spread of COVID-19.
As of September 10, Ukraine reported 145,612 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 2,582 new cases recorded in the course of the previous day.
