We do not rule out that a new variant of the coronavirus infection will appear on the territory of Ukraine. Considering that thousands of Ukrainians, who were forced to leave their homes because of the war, will come or return home from countries where there is already a new strain.
In each region, during the 2023/24 epidemic season, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention specialists will continue to collect samples, test the strains in the laboratory and study the mutations that arise.
