In Ukraine, the third wave of the coronavirus pandemic is coming to an end. In the near future the last region will leave the “red” quarantine zone. This was announced on May 7, by Minister of Health Maksym Stepanov, informs UATV.

“Finally, I can state that we got out from the 3rd wave of the pandemic. From tomorrow, there will not be a single region with a “red” level of epidemic danger in Ukraine,” he said.

So, on May 8, Sumy region will leave the “red” zone.

The minister specified that the 3rd wave of COVID-19 lasted 2 months in Ukraine and became the deadliest.

“The 3rd wave claimed more lives than the first two. After all, a huge number of patients provoked a large number of deaths. The virus did not care who to take – either a 37-year-old young man, or the elderly,” added Stepanov.

The Zaporizhzhia and Poltava regions left the “red” quarantine zone at midnight on May 7. Also, the “red” level of epidemic danger from May 6 ceased to operate in Kharkiv, Khmelnytsky and Chernihiv regions. Before that, the capital of Ukraine left the “red” zone on May 1.
