Ukraine hits all-time death record amid vaccine hesitancy


KYIV, Ukraine – Coronaviru­s infections and deaths in Ukraine surged to all-time highs Thursday amid a laggard pace of vaccinatio­n, with overall inoculatio­ns among the lowest in Europe. Ukrainian authoritie­s reported 22,415 new confirmed infections and 546 deaths in the past 24 hours, the highest numbers since the start of the pandemic. Authoritie­s have blamed a spike in infections on a slow pace of vaccinatio­n in the nation of 41 million. Only about 15% of Ukrainians are fully vaccinated, Europe’s lowest level after Armenia.
