143 Delta variant cases already confirmed in Ukraine.

143 cases of COVID-19 Delta variant have been officially confirmed in Ukraine.

“As for Delta variant, a few weeks ago we talked about 17 cases. Currently, 143 cases have been officially confirmed at the national level. That is, the variant is spreading across the territory of Ukraine,” Deputy Health Minister, Chief State Sanitary Doctor Ihor Kuzin said on the air of Ukrainian Radio, Ukrinform reports.

According to him, the biggest number of Delta cases were recorded in Volyn, Odesa, Ternopil regions, Chernivtsi and Kyiv cities.

Delta variant spreads faster than other COVId-19 variants and often leads to hospitalization, the chief sanitary doctor noted.

However, according to him, vaccination protects against Delta.

The overall situation with the incidence of COVID-19 across the country is gradually deteriorating, Kuzin said.

“Every day we see an increase of 10-15 new cases. In fact, this situation is quite risky, because the situation is deteriorating in every region of the country, and the outbreak can be expected not only in some regions but anywhere,” said Kuzin.

As of August 5, 2,256,397 coronavirus cases were laboratory-confirmed in Ukraine, including 1,052 new cases recorded on August 4. As of August 5, more than 6 million COVID-19 shots were given in Ukraine. On August 4, 2021, 159,121 people were vaccinated against COVID-19.
