Oleksiy Danilov said on a television station that the Delta infection was confirmed in a 66-year-old and 16-year-old woman who had recently returned from Russia, Ukraine’s Interfax news agency wrote on Wednesday. Both are in hospital and their condition is evaluated by doctors as stable.

– We have four laboratories that can detect the new variant, two private and two state-owned, what is missing are the tests that reveal the Indian variant, we asked the World Health Organization – Danilov said.

The RCNiO secretary has not ruled out a complete closure of traffic with some countries due to the spread of the delta variant.

On Tuesday, the head of the Parliamentary Committee on Health, Mikhailo Radukic, wrote that there is a risk that a wave of infections in the delta will soon reach Ukraine. He also said that it is not currently technically possible in Ukraine to independently detect the delta variant. He said that the Ministry of Health had recently sent 500 samples from different regions to the London laboratory. It is also expected that new tests from the World Health Organization that can detect this type of coronavirus immediately.
