Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal says Ukraine managed to cope with the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic in spring 2020.
"We believe that Ukraine has adequately coped with the challenges it faced this spring. These were very difficult months as risks were huge, and it was necessary to act quickly," he said in his address to the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, on June 4.
"Since the beginning of the pandemic, there has been no collapse in our country's health care system, as was in the most developed countries in Europe and the rest of the world. Our doctors are not overloaded, while the COVID-19 case fatality rate remains lower than in most countries of Europe and the rest of the world," he added.
As UNIAN reported earlier, there were 25,411 laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ukraine as of the morning of June 4, including 747 COVID-19 deaths and 11,042 recoveries. Some 588 new cases were recorded in the past 24 hours.
