The country also recorded its maximum daily deaths since March 2020.

A total of 4,838 patients were hospitalized, 362 patients have died from complications, and 6,748 people have recovered, the official said.

The COVID-19 numbers have been growing in Ukraine over the past month, leading to a three-week lockdown in the capital and several other regions.

So far, 1,596,575 COVID-19 cases and 31,135 deaths have been registered in Ukraine, while 1,283,020 patients have recovered, according to the health authorities.
