The Ukrainian Armed Forces reported 1,406 Covid-19 cases, including 62 new cases in the past 24 hours in the first week of January 2021.

In addition, 92 people have been placed in isolation, while 33 service members will end their isolation in the next three days.

An unspecified number of Canadian Armed Forces have tested positive for Covid-19 in Latvia.
