Top breaking news about COVID-19 in the country
During quarantine, Ukraine's GDP almost halved
Due to the outbreak of coronavirus, Ukraine's GDP fell by 5.9%. This is slightly more than in January-May 2020, when gross domestic product decreased by 5%. The Ministry of Economy noted that the softening of quarantine from mid-May and the further lifting of restrictions will revive economic activity. Consequently, at the end of 2020, we should expect GDP growth.
8 regions of Ukraine are not ready to weaken quarantine
Due to the increased incidence of coronavirus among the population, eight areas are not ready to go to the next stage of quarantine weakening:
Volyn region, Donetsk region, Transcarpathian region, Ivano-Frankivsk region, Rivne region, Ternopil region, Kharkov region, Chernihiv region.
In Odessa region, a patient with asymptomatic COVID-19 died
In Odessa region, an elderly man died who did not have signs of the disease. The asymptomatic course of the coronavirus was revealed in him, because his wife fell ill and he fell into the circle of contact persons. The man had concomitant chronic diseases.
In Lviv, the second employee of the laboratory center died from coronavirus
On July 9, as a result of COVID-19, the assistant epidemiologist of the regional laboratory center died. The woman was 55 years old. The disease developed gradually – at first the woman began to cough, she had shortness of breath, and when they did a CT scan of the lungs, they diagnosed pneumonia. Subsequently, the PCR test confirmed the diagnosis of COVID-19.

In the UAE, police taught dogs to look for patients with coronavirus
In the UAE, police began using dogs to detect the COVID-19 coronavirus in humans. Studies have shown that dogs can detect cases of COVID-19 infection with an accuracy of 92%.
Due to quarantine, the Estonian lived for more than 100 days at the Philippines airport
Starting March 20, Estonian Roman Trofimov spent 109 days at the airport in the Philippine city of Manila. Because of quarantine, he was not allowed out of the airport building, and he could not get home due to canceled flights. Representatives of the Estonian embassy in Japan offered Trofimov to fly from Manila in April by a rescue flight, paying about 1,500 euros for this. He was offered to take a consular loan, but he refused, because he could not repay it.
The WHO said that the situation with coronavirus is getting worse
The World Health Organization has stated that the coronavirus pandemic is gaining momentum, and incidence continues to skyrocket. The head of the World Health Organization said that over the past six weeks, the total number of patients with coronavirus has doubled. In most parts of the world, the virus is not under control.
The last patient with COVID-19 was discharged from Bergamo resuscitation.
In Italy, the city of Bergamo was most affected by the coronavirus and at one time became the epicenter of the spread of infection. Local morgues could not cope with such a large stream of bodies. However, from today on, doctors will change into the form of “pre-coronavirus” times – without special protective equipment, which were mandatory when working with patients with COVID-19.
Mechanical ventilation with COVID-19 often causes severe complications
The researchers found that patients with COVID-19 who receive mechanical ventilation (ALV) often develop complications – barotrauma. This leads to an increased risk of death for the patient or to a prolonged hospital stay.
Asymptomatic carriers are the main distributors of coronavirus
According to a new study, asymptomatic carriers account for up to 50% of all infections. It is only about those infections that are detected during testing. It is reasonable to assume that most asymptomatic people will never know about the presence of COVID-19, which means their number is much higher. This once again demonstrates how important it is to use medical masks to all people, without exception, in public places.

BCG vaccine reduces COVID-19 mortality
A new work by scientists suggests that a BCG vaccine can indeed reduce COVID-19 mortality. They analyzed a number of countries where vaccination is widespread and noticed a characteristic trend. The most striking example is Germany, where mortality from coronavirus in the west was almost three times higher than in the east.
Symptoms of coronavirus may not disappear even after 100 days
Doctors will learn more and more details that show that the coronavirus does not always go unnoticed. In some people, unpleasant symptoms can persist for a long time. It is known that the incubation period of coronavirus is up to 14 days, and the average duration of the disease reaches 28 days, if the coronavirus proceeds in medium form. In severe cases, patients may be in the hospital for months. According to experts, this is due to a special immune response to the virus. But some people are of the opinion that in this way the virus re-activates in the body.
The use of medical masks reduces the risk of infection with COVID-19
Wearing medical masks dramatically reduces the risk of coronavirus infection. If a person closes his nose and mouth with a special tissue, then the probability of getting COVID-19 into the body by airborne droplets is reduced by 65%.
Interesting How to identify asymptomatic patients with coronavirus: found a way
A method for detecting coronavirus in asymptomatic carriers
Scientists were able to determine the presence of infection in the body by voice. Biomarkers arise due to disturbances in the movement of muscles of the respiratory, laryngeal or articulatory systems.
Streams of air, interacting with hundreds of sore muscles, distort the sounds of speech. This is reflected in the volume, continuity and resonance of the voice – all this can be measured.
Pandemic Famine May Kill More People Than Coronavirus
Until the end of 2020, more people can die from starvation caused by the coronavirus pandemic than from the infection itself. In particular, 12 thousand people can die of hunger every day until the end of the year. This is influenced by a number of factors: unemployment, loss of food producers from quarantine, as well as difficulties with the delivery of assistance.
There will be more and more pandemics in the world over time
Over the past four decades, three new pathogens have been identified every year that affect people. About 75% of them spread to people from animals. They are called zoonoses. Bats are likely to have become the source of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Also of animal origin were SARS, MERS, Ebola, as well as the Hendra and Nipah viruses.
One of the factors that increase the possibility of spreading pathogens from one species to another is the invasion of natural ecosystems. Therefore, the threat of spreading a new disease around the world is increasing due to the unprecedented development of international trade and air travel.
