Quarantine in Ukraine may be strengthened in the first half of September 2021 due to the fact that the rate of detection of cases of COVID-19 infection crossed the maximum permissible for the "green" zone. In particular, just in a week the number of cases of coronavirus in our country increased by a quarter.
This forecast was announced by the head of the Center of Health Economics of the Kiev School of Economics Yuriy Ganichenko.
Despite the control over the current epidemiological situation, the load on the medical system is steadily growing: every fifth "covid" resuscitation bed is occupied by patients, and 14% are occupied by "oxygen" beds.
Daily mortality has also increased. It is about 38 deaths per day, which is almost half more than last week. In more than 10 regions of the country the case detection rate exceeds 5% recomended by the WHO
Experts emphasize that everything is not so critical and most likely there will not be a complete lockdown. In Ukraine, the "yellow" and "green" scenarios are still being implemented, and our country is moving away from the most pessimistic. At the same time, entrepreneurs are advised to be ready to tighten quarantine restrictions right now.
Doctors advise Ukrainians to be vaccinated against COVID-19. You also need to increase the testing rate by 50%.
