Ruslan Khomchak, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said that the first entry/exit checkpoints on the demarcation line in the area of Joint Forces operation were being prepared for opening after June 10. This was announced at the traditional conference call on combating the spread of coronavirus, which was chaired by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, the press service of the President's Office reports.
It was also noted that adaptive quarantine had been introduced in all regions of Ukraine, except for three: Lviv, Rivne and Chernivtsi, and almost everywhere there had been a transition to the third stage of lockdown easing.
The President’s Office states that the significant outbreaks of the disease did not occur after the introduction of lockdown easing in the country. In addition, Ukraine has reached a plateau of morbidity. Over the past 24 hours, 388 people have recovered and 328 have become infected.
"In fact, we managed to survive the first wave of the pandemic relatively well. This was facilitated by both the responsibility of Ukrainians and the containment strategy, which we developed in detail and carefully changed as needed. Now we have the experience, understanding and resilience if the second wave comes. I hope that humanity will be more prepared at that moment," Zelensky said.
As we reported earlier, on June 1, the first case of coronavirus infection was detected among the staff of Ukraine’s Ministry of Health.
