After June 22, Ukraine's Healthcare Ministry may consider the prolongation of quarantine restrictions. Viktor Lyashko, the Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine said this, as quoted by Ukrainska Pravda.

"Currently it lasts until June 22, that's for sure. After that, we will see how the mitigation on June 10 and June 15 changes the situation. If it remains the same, we'll look into the quarantine, it will be the adaptive kind. And it will be kept on the regional level, maybe on the level of an inhabited locality", Lyashko said.

According to the official, further decisions on lifting quarantine restrictions will depend on the epidemiological situation not only in Ukraine but also in the EU member countries.

Quarantine measures will be reinforced in Slovyansk, Donetsk region, as the outbreak of coronavirus took place in the town. The press office of the town council reported that on Facebook.

Three new cases were confirmed in the town for over 24 hours. Another four people were taken to a hospital with suspicion of the disease.

Given the epidemiological situation, the regional commission for emergencies decided to temporarily close gyms and ban the education process in groups. 

On May 22, Ukraine switched to the so-called adaptive quarantine, when regional authorities can weaken or boost the restrictions, depending on the epidemiological situation.
