"Dear friends! Apparently it's my turn. The positive mood changed with the positive test. There is no mask, which I have not actually taken off since March, no gloves, no disinfection. Probably, you also need to pass this test. Therefore, I am forced to be out of order,”wrote Stefanchuk.
The Vice-Speaker wished the citizens good immunity, and those who had contact with him recently recommended to be attentive to their health. By the way, Stefanchuk runs the risk of becoming one of those who are hard to tolerate the coronavirus, as he falls into the risk group as a person who is overweight.
Stefanchuk is the second case in the presidium of the Ukrainian parliament, the speaker of the Rada, Dmitry Razumkov, announced his diagnosis the day before. Next week, only the Deputy Speaker Elena Kondratyuk will be able to conduct the meetings; there has not yet been negative information about her state of health.
The media report that every 6 deputy is sick in the Verkhovna Rada, and since the beginning of the pandemic, 75 deputies and 77 employees of the parliamentary staff have caught the virus, and there are half a million cases in the country, of which 11 thousand are new patients in the last day. More than 9 thousand people have died.
