Ukraine’s chief medical officer of health says the coronavirus epidemic will not affect the beach season in the country.
This was reported by the “MFN” referring to a briefing by Viktor Lyashko.
According to him, this year, Ukrainians will not be prohibited from swimming in seas, rivers and lakes, because sunlight kills the causative agent of coronavirus:
“We are going to swim this year. Sea salt and UV rays tend to kill the causative agent of the coronavirus. Therefore, we will not ban the beach season. It will be resolved, as in other countries. “
At the same time, added Lyashko, the Ministry of Health will first consult the Institute for the Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases of NAMS on this subject.
Recall that we have already written about the situation of the coronavirus in Ukraine.
