Updated: 4 days ago

The Ministry of Health of Ukraine on January 11, 2021, updated the list of countries in the red zone published on January 7, where the UAE, the Dominican Republic, and 21 other states went back to "green."

These include countries as Canada, Hungary, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Belgium, and Brazil among others.


This time, the criterion for including the country on the red list is the excess of the incidence of COVID-19 in 244.19 cases per 100 thousand population over the past 14 days.

In the morning version of the list, this criterion was 106.8 cases. As a result, 78 countries were initially included in the red zone, and after the list was updated, this number dropped to 55. Russia and Belarus remained in the red zone.
