Health Minister Maxym Stepanov explained the reason for the increase in the number of infected Ukrainians. Stepanov told about this in a video message on Facebook.

"The trend towards an increase in the incidence rate over the past few days has a simple explanation - our society was rather frivolous with the recommendations of the Ministry of Health, and the mitigation of quarantine measures was perceived as their complete abolition," Stepanov said.

He added that the authorities chose an adaptive quarantine strategy to gradually exit the coronavirus crisis. However, it still operates. It is important not to confuse the concept of mitigation and cancellation, because the threat is as great as before.

Statistics on the increase in cases are also observed in other countries. Germany's virus rate in recent days has again exceeded its critical value. In China, where the epidemic began, they are preparing for a new outbreak. Another country which authorities announced the start of the second wave was South Korea. Brazil and India are also setting new record breaks.

In Ukraine, a positive dynamics of the incidence has been observed in recent weeks. But the latest data and a frivolous attitude to the personal safety of citizens are alarming.

"I understand how tired everyone is of quarantine; I want to return to a full life as soon as possible, but we have no choice. The war against the virus has not yet been won. And only by our behavior and compliance with safety rules can we minimize the activity of its spread," said in the message.

Stepanov urged to use masks, antiseptics and adhere to social distance.

"Do not neglect the rules and personal protective equipment, because not only your life, but also those people who are close to you depend on it," Stepanov said.
