"We took protocols of the countries of the European Union, the United States, and China and created the treatment protocol that we all saw and which was approved by my order. Now there is no drug in the world, which would be indications for COVID-19. All this is just modern evidence-based medicine," he said, as reported by the Ukrainian TSN TV news service on April 5.

According to the official, Ukrainians who contracted the virus will be treated with drugs that have encouraging results in different countries.

"The group of doctors who are developing the protocol continue to consider various options, monitoring the situation worldwide. I believe that this week it [the protocol] will be supplemented with appropriate medicines and treatment regimens," he added.
