In Ukraine, a stable slowdown in the dynamics of the coronavirus spread has been observed over the past week. Not only the number of new cases is decreasing, but also the rates of mortality and hospitalization.
This is stated in the review of the epidemic situation in Ukraine for April 21—27, prepared by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS).
"During the week of April 21—27, the number of new detections per day is steadily decreasing at a rate of about 260 cases per day, or 14% per week. A decrease in the number of new deaths has also begun, but with a much lower relative rate of decline," the review says.
In addition to the decline in the number of disease cases, the number of new hospitalizations and occupied beds is also decreasing. But beds in intensive care units are vacated much more slowly.
Ukraine passed the peak of deaths caused by coronavirus in the first half of April. As stated by the authors of the review, such a hypothesis can be formulated by the data of the Ministry of Justice.
