Ukraine's Healthcare Ministry plans to boost control measures during border crossing. The government considers implementing self-isolation for the non-vaccinated citizens who arrive in this country.
According to press department of the Office of the President of Ukraine, the Ministry intends to implement such limitations because of the quick spread of the Delta coronavirus variant. Healthcare Minister Viktor Lyashko claimed that all non-vaccinated citizens who arrive in Ukraine will have to undergo 14 days of self-isolation - or seven days, as long as they get the negative PCR test results after this period is over.
"Ukrainians aged under 18 and those who left the country before the decree took effect will be relieved from self-isolation", reads the message.
