"Regarding the national lockdown, I would not be specific about any date. You can apply lockdown earlier than October 25 and later. It depends only on the number of coronavirus infections. Other countries are setting an example. Israel has already introduced it (the lockdown – 112 International.),” he said.
Lyashko also stressed that a lockdown could be avoided if Ukrainians adhered to sanitary norms.
As we reported earlier, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine changed its approaches to dividing regions into quarantine zones according to the level of coronavirus infection.
According to the changes proposed by the head of the Health Ministry Maksym Stepanov, the city or district will be included in the "red" zone in the case of:
1) occupancy of 75% of beds in medical institutions in the region for five consecutive days;
2) excess incidence of Covid-19 by more than five times compared to the national average (per 100 thousand population in 14 days).
