According to figures shared by Health Minister Maksym Stepanov, 191 fatalities were registered over that same period while nearly 5,000 people were discharged with recoveries.

Unlike many European countries, Ukraine's epidemiological situation did not ease up before the second wave of infections but has consistently grown since the first cases were registered in March. (ANI/Sputnik)
