As of now, there is no need to introduce a state of emergency in Ukraine. Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmygal said this on the air of one of the Ukrainian TV channels, UNN reports.

"At the moment there is no need to impose a state of emergency in Ukraine ... the spread of this coronavirus in Ukraine is moderate, unlike other countries," he said.

Shmygal added that the introduction of an emergency situation in certain regions of Ukraine where cases of coronavirus had been recorded was sufficient to effectively manage the situation where it was necessary.
