At the traditional meeting on prevention of the spread of COVID-19, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy was informed that 260 people fell ill and 356 recovered in the country over the day.
"The coronavirus epidemic has forced us all to make new decisions and accept new living conditions. All countries in the world have revised their approaches. Today's trend in the number of those who fell ill and those who recovered inspires hope that we have passed the first challenges with dignity. However, this does not mean that we should be careless with coronavirus infection. We will do everything to guarantee the safety of Ukrainians," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
Minister for Communities and Territories Development of Ukraine Oleksiy Chernyshov informed the Head of State that so far almost all regions have paid March allowance of up to 300% to the doctors struggling with coronavirus. Three regions will resolve this issue in the coming days.
Also, some regions have already started paying allowance for April, and by the end of the week the Cabinet of Ministers expects a significant increase in the number of agreements with the National Health Service, which is necessary to make these payments.
