Deputy Minister of Health – Senior Medical Officer Viktor Liashko announced this during a briefing.
"If we look at the age breakdown, then among the sick people, people aged 30-45 are most affected, almost 38% of all sick," he said.
According to Liashko, the age group of 18-29 years old makes up 17% of all cases, 50-65 years old - 30% and more than 65 years old - 6%.
"That is, we see that among everyone who is sick, the age group of 18 to 49 years old is almost 50%. This indicates that the older age group still listens to the advice of the Ministry of Health, observes quarantine measures and limits its mobility. People from 18 to 49 years old are now dismissive of the threatening situation that has hung over the whole world," the deputy minister said.

He emphasized that self-isolation is now the only means that can save the health care system and without it, any other measures would not work.
"We must not allow a repetition of the situation that exists in Italy, Spain, France," Liashko said.
