Kyiv/UNI/Xinhua: The Ukrainian government announced Wednesday that it will introduce a compulsory COVID-19 vaccination for civil servants and education workers.

"We consider it expedient to make a tough decision to ensure the safety of the educational process and the functioning of public authorities," Ukrainian Health Minister Viktor Liashko said.

The vaccination coverage among other priority professional groups in Ukraine, namely healthcare, defense and law enforcement workers, has reached 80 per cent, the minister said.

As of Wednesday, 2,362,559 coronavirus cases and 55,161 deaths were registered in Ukraine, while 2,235,668 patients recovered, according to the health ministry.

So far, the number of Ukrainians, who have been fully vaccinated, has exceeded the 5.2 million mark.
