The National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine chaired by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy considered measures to counter the spread of COVID-19 in our country.
Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov said at a briefing following the results of the meeting that Ukraine is now reaching the peak of morbidity. Most of those infected who have a severe illness or die have not been vaccinated.
At the same time, today Ukraine has a sufficient number of vaccines against COVID-19, and it is very important that the country reaches the rate of 350-400 thousand vaccinations per day. Therefore, the Ministry of Health must ensure the implementation of the vaccination program.
It is also important to adhere to the mask regime, social distance, wash your hands often.
The National Security and Defense Council recommended that the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine take measures to ensure that most schools and institutions of higher education go on vacation from October 25. The final decision must be made by the Cabinet of Ministers and relevant agencies.
