"The Cabinet of Ministers created the Council on Economic Development of Ukraine, which includes the best scientists and economists with world renown. Now we are working together to develop a quarantine exit strategy that we are introducing next week," Shmygal said.
According to him, it is planned that in May, Ukrainians should leave their homes and go to work.
Shmygal pointed to several ready-made points in the quarantine exit strategy:
Stage 1 - during the ‘emergency’ regime, by early May, the government should implement programs to support vulnerable groups of the population, the unemployed and physicians, as well as mobilize medical resources.
Stage 2 - beginning of May - beginning of June: creation of 500 thousand new jobs, credit support for small and medium-sized businesses, partial removal of restrictions on public transport, shifted work schedule.
Stage 3 - beginning of June - beginning of July: completion of the academic year 2019-2020, the resumption of public transport according to the new rules, the lifting of the ban on visiting recreational areas subject to safety requirements, the weakening of self-isolation conditions for the elderly.
As we reported before, the World Bank will provide Ukraine $ 150 million, of which $ 50 million to support vulnerable segments of the population during the coronavirus epidemic and $ 100 million to improve social protection in general.
