Project "ReCOVery +"

In March 2020, the World Health Organization announced a pandemic in the world through the coronavirus COVID-19. According to WHO, a pandemic is the spread of a disease on a global scale. This term is applied to an infectious disease that threatens many people around the world at the same time and, as a rule, is characterized by the lack of herd immunity in humanity and effective means of prevention (vaccines) and treatment. The number of deaths from COVID-19 quickly exceeded the number of deaths during the swine flu pandemic in 2009-2010. The WHO recorded an exponential acceleration in the spread of coronavirus: the first 100,000 people fell ill in 67 days, the second in 11 days, the third in 4 days, the fourth in 3 days, and the fifth 100,000 in just 2 days. On some days in Italy, a record 743 deaths were recorded per day, in Spain, 738 people died on one day. As of September 1, there were 25.3 million COVID-19 infections in the world. The total number of deaths from infection was 848 thousand. Recovered 16.7 million. According to scientists forecasts, with a favorable scenario, the death toll will reach 15 million people, with the worst - more than 68 million. In addition to the threat to humanity from the coronavirus pandemic, the world is facing an economic crisis, which the IMF has named the biggest since the Great Depression of the 1930s. In Ukraine, the virus has already caused nearly unprecedented economic and social damage since early March, when it was reported to exist. All over the country, educational institutions, central and municipal authorities, communal and private enterprises, etc. were closed. The quarantined business has effectively left more than a million workers without income. Local governments were actually left alone during the quarantine period without the support of the central authorities. The world is now on the verge of a second wave of the pandemic. According to forecasts, this wave will be even more dangerous and destructive, both for humanity and for the economy. The above data indicate the ineffectiveness of the way to overcome the pandemic through the COVID-19 coronavirus by introducing strict quarantine conditions and indicate the need to find a more effective mechanism and develop an integrated solution that will control the spread of COVID-19, save lives and minimize the negative impact on the country's economy.

"Clean Tisza is the key to a happy future"

Zakarpattia is one of the richest regions of Ukraine in terms of water resources. The Carpathian springs feed the most important water arteries of Europe, such as: the Vistula, the Danube, the Tisza, the Dniester and their numerous large and small tributaries. The Carpathians are the source of 80% of Romania's water resources and 40% of Ukraine's water reserves are also from the Carpathians. But it is disturbing to note that the Carpathians may lose their importance for Europe as a source of fresh water. Mountainous regions are most vulnerable to the "garbage problem". Garbage-removal trucks, which usually run through lowland villages without any problems, do not go to the mountains, where the roads are often absent at all, and if there are, the cost of garbage removal from there hits record heights. Because of this, the Chairmen of mountain communities often close their eyes to the illegal dumping, burning garbage by locals and throwing it into the river. It sounds disappointing but the rivers are the main waste transporter of the Ukrainian Carpathians.
