"For example, in France, Spain, Germany, the first wave of the pandemic was clearly seen in March-April (8,000-9,000 cases were recorded per day) and the second wave in September-October (12,000-13,000 new cases were recorded). There is a gradual growth in Ukraine, with which the health care system is still coping," he said.
According to Liashko, Ukraine has recorded a relatively slow but steady increase in the number of cases, but there have been no noticeable declines since the very beginning of the epidemic.
