Ukraine is ready to help the European Union in mass production of a vaccine against coronavirus. This was stated by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy in an interview with Politico Europe, published on Tuesday, October 6.
Representatives of Kiev are going to raise the topic of vaccine production at the next Ukraine-European Union summit, which will be held in Brussels on October 6.
According to Zelinsky, the country will be able to help in the manufacture of a vaccine against coronavirus when an effective means for immunization is ready for mass production. In response, Kiev is hoping for EU support in the ongoing conflict with Russia.
On October 3, it was reported that a record increase in COVID-19 cases was recorded in Ukraine. According to data published on the website of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of the country, 4,661 new cases of coronavirus infection were recorded.
Quarantine has been introduced in the country since March 17. According to the government’s decision, the restrictive measures have been extended until the end of October. On August 1, new rules for adaptive quarantine came into force in Ukraine: the regions of the country are divided into four zones, in which, depending on the epidemic situation, different restrictions apply.
