According to the minister, so many patients have not yet been.
Within a week, we have been observing an increased number of reported cases of coronavirus disease. There was an appeal from the President of Ukraine that our quarantine has not been lifted, that the threat has not disappeared,
– said Stepanov.
He noted that people became frivolous with COVID-19 and began to behave as if there was no threat.
Maxim Stepanov “Look at the numbers that we fix every day. Not only the numbers of cases – look at the number of deaths: yesterday 23 people, today 21 people. These are not just numbers – they are specific people who died from such an enemy as COVID-19. ”
The Minister urged Ukrainians to continue adhering to quarantine. He emphasized that, subject to measures, the number of cases and the possibility of infection should be reduced.
"Of course, in a situation where we have such an increase in the number of (new patients), we will propose certain measures for the sake of your health and life," he said.
Note that the number of patients could increase due to an increase in the number of tests. Over the past 24 hours, a record number of Ukrainians were tested in Ukraine – 18,622. For comparison, on June 10, 14,210 people were tested, and on June 9, 6,359.
By the end of the year, 7,500 patients with COVID-19 may die in Ukraine
According to estimates by the Kiev School of Economics, 2,000 people will die if hard quarantine is returned from the coronavirus by the end of the year. But if it is not returned, the number of victims will increase to 7,500.
Meanwhile, the former Minister of Economic Development Timofei Milovanov believes that quarantine should not be returned even if the mortality rate is even higher.
I believe that quarantine does not need to be returned, even if more people die. Because many people will suffer and die from a halt and recession in the economy. And in the economic dimension, the losses will be significantly greater than the benefits of quarantine,
– said Milovanov.
