Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine plans to prolong the lockdown after May 22. Prime Minister Denis Shmygal said this on the air of the 1+1 TV channel.

"Officially lockdown is prolonged until May 22, but this is not the deadline. We will continue," he said.

The Prime Minister added that at that moment the Ukrainian government was working on each further stage of lockdown.

"Today it is difficult to predict. Now we are at the peak of morbidity. We are going even for the last seven or eight days. The number of patients in percentage does not show an increase. We even have a slight fall in the number of patients to those who are already ill. We still have not had a day when the number of those who recovered exceeds or is equal to the number of those who got infected. This is a very important turning point that will allow us to understand that we have passed the peak,” Shmygal added.
