The COVID-19 pandemic was confirmed to have spread to Ukraine when its first case was confirmed to be hospitalized in Chernivtsi Oblast on 3 March 2020.[1] It was a man who had travelled from Italy to Romania by plane and then arrived in Ukraine by car.[2]

As of 20 March, an emergency was declared in Kyiv Oblast, Chernivtsi Oblast, Zhytomyr Oblast, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast and in the city of Kyiv.[3]

Statistics for the Russian-held Crimea and city of Sevastopol, and for the unrecognized Donetsk People's Republic and Luhansk People's Republic in eastern Ukraine are not reported by Ukraine.[4]
