Health Minister Viktor Liashko states that Ukraine can enter a number of countries with a favorable epidemic situation according to the criteria of the European Union.

He announced this during a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on Wednesday, June 9, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"The level of testing (less than 5% of positive tests) and the falling dynamics of morbidity can bring Ukraine into a number of countries with a favorable epidemic situation according to the criteria of the European Union. And this, in turn, can ensure free travel of Ukrainians to the EU countries this summer," said the minister.

Liashko also said that the current epidemic situation in the country allows to say that all of Ukraine meets the indicators of the "green" level of epidemic danger.

"The occupation of beds in Ukraine is the lowest since the beginning of 2021. For the eighth week in a row, Ukraine has seen a decline in the incidence of coronavirus. The daily number of hospitalizations continues to decline and is at its lowest level in 2021. Following hospitalizations, the occupation of covid resources of the medical system reached the lowest level 2021. Resuscitation beds are occupied by 29%, beds with oxygen - by 15%, lung ventilators - by 7%," Liashko said.

Besides, the number of patients in covid hospitals in Ukraine has decreased by a third over the past week.

At the same time, the positivity of testing for the first time in 2020-2021 meets the WHO requirements and is less than 5% of the total number of tests.

According to Liashko, a similar situation is expected next week and throughout the summer period.
