Ukraine should gradually withdraw from the lockdown as a premature end may have shocking consequences. This was stated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky during an address that was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"If we return to the usual rhythm of life tomorrow, it is potentially plus 120,000 deaths by the end of the year. That is why the easing of the quarantine cannot be premature," Zelensky said.

He also thanked all the doctors for help with the prevention of the COVID-10 spread.
