Ukraine registered a record 5,992 COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours, the national security council said on Friday, up from a previous record of 5,804 new cases on Oct. 9.

The total number of cases climbed to 287,231, including 5,394 deaths, with 92 in the past 24 hours.

Ukraine has recorded over 5,000 new cases almost daily since the start of October. The spike in infections prompted the government to extend lockdown measures until the end-2020.
