Ukraine launches clinical trials of a domestic drug, which, according to the preliminary findings of Ukrainian scientists and manufacturers, can significantly reduce or completely neutralize the risk of death from complications caused by the coronavirus infection.

In addition, the possibility of comprehensive use of this tool for the treatment of coronavirus and for the prevention of the disease is being studied.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed hope that clinical trials will officially confirm the effectiveness of the drug and that in the future it will help save the lives of thousands of Ukrainian citizens.

"I believe in Ukrainian scientists, and today we keep our fingers crossed for them all over the country," the President said.
