Today, he added that open borders also contribute to the deterioration of the situation.
But according to Viktor Lyashko, 200 cases of COVID-19 were detected on the same day due to the fact that a large queue of citizens who were waiting for the tests was eliminated.

Due to the epidemiological situation in the Lviv region, Minister of Health Maxim Stepanov visited Lviv and threatened with dismissal to the leadership of the Department of Health of the Lviv Regional Administration.

Adaptive quarantine now operates in Ukraine. From June 22, the decision to strengthen quarantine will be determined by 4 criteria:
congestion of beds in health facilities is more than 50%; the average number of PCR studies and ELISA tests is less than 24 per 100 thousand of the population during the week; the detection rate of cases of coronavirus is more than 11%; COVID-19 cases growth rate is more than 10%.
Consequently, the number of areas that must adhere to enhanced quarantine restrictions has increased.

Volyn region; Dnipropetrovsk region; Donetsk region; Zhytomyr Oblast; Transcarpathian region; Ivano-Frankivsk region; Lugansk region; Lviv region; Nikolaevkskaya area; Odessa region; Rivne region; Ternopil region; Chernivtsi region; Chernihiv region.

Italian scientists believe that the coronavirus has mutated and weakened, which may disappear on its own before the invention of the vaccine. They believe that people have become much less infected and have become sick more often in a milder form. The loss of smell with COVID-19 has been known for a long time. Now, scientists have established that with coronavirus, the nature of the loss of smell differs from what occurs during a cold and explained why this occurs. Experts have found that the part of the nose that is responsible for the sense of smell is blocked by edematous tissues and mucus. The other part of the nose and sinuses has a normal appearance, and patients have no problems breathing through the nose. The findings of yet another study demonstrate that some babies born to mothers with COVID-19 already have antibodies to protect against coronavirus. And this confirms the theory that the virus is transmitted through the placenta.
The Israeli Institute for Biological Research said that scientists were able to conduct successful preclinical trials of a vaccine against coronavirus infection on hamsters. They claim that attempts to infect animals with coronavirus after vaccination were in vain.
