Viktor Lyashko, the Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine, is convinced that the state bodies cannot impose strict quarantine restrictions once again. He stated this in an interview with Ukrainian Radio.
"When we talked about March-April, we had well-timed strict quarantine restrictions. And there was no peak increase in the number of coronavirus cases in Ukraine. During that time, we prepared our health care system, and now we clearly understand that such strict measures cannot be introduced once again because they have a very negative impact on the economy," Lyashko said.
According to him, the Ministry of Health is looking for a middle ground between economic and epidemic restrictions in order for both the country's economy to work and the health care system to cope with a load of patients.
As we reported earlier, Head of the WHO in Ukraine Jarno Habicht stated that the daily number of those infected with coronavirus in Ukraine would be growing considerably.
In the next few months, it is expected at the rate of 7-9,000 cases every day.
