Considered by some analysts as Europe’s poorest country, Ukraine is especially vulnerable to the effects of a pandemic, given the dire state of its healthcare services. Marina Poroshenko went on to criticize the government, accusing them of spending “on everything but medicine,” and “losing control of the pandemic.”
Poroshenko is not the first high-profile Ukrainian official to be diagnosed with the coronavirus. In late August, former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko was reported to be in critical condition after contracting the virus, but has since recovered.
Ukraine is currently experiencing an uptick in Covid-19 cases, which current President Volodymyr Zelensky has called the second coronavirus wave. This week, daily infections have jumped to above 4,000 per day.
