Ukrainian Health Minister Maksym Stepanov says the country is currently seeing the peak of the third COVID-19 wave.

"As for the epidemic, I must say that – as we predicted – we have reached the peak of the case rate, the peak of the third wave. And now the situation has started to stabilize gradually. We currently see this in all the regions. In particular, we see a decrease in hospitalizations," he said at a briefing on Tuesday, an UNIAN correspondent reported.

According to Stepanov, there were 2,000 fewer hospitalized patients last week against the previous one.
