«Yesterday we very quickly crossed the mark of 300 people who are hospitalized. Today we have 330 already, ”the minister said.

A day earlier, 315 patients with coronavirus were hospitalized.

As of August 14, 87,872 people fell ill with coronavirus in Ukraine, of which 46,797 recovered, deaths – 2011. For the second day in a row, anti-records are recorded in the number of new cases of infection, over the past day 1,732 people fell ill, the day before – 1,592.

The government extended the quarantine until August 31, with a softening from May 22. The approach to softening or strengthening quarantine remained adaptive, but the principle of allocating regions to strengthen quarantine measures was changed.

The country was divided into four zones according to the level of danger of the spread of coronavirus. Each of them has a certain number of restrictions.

The new quarantine rules took effect on August 3. The decision on dividing the country into zones will be reviewed every 14 days.
