Ukraine’s Prime Minister Denys Shmygal stated in his video address that the quarantine measures in Ukraine might be gradually loosened in late April if there were the dynamics of the decline in COVID-19 incidence.
“This process will take several stages. Initially, people of working age will be allowed to work. Public transport will be renewed in parallel. But they will still have to wear masks," he said.
The Prime Minister said that the quarantine would be prolonged for the elderly, children and students.
As we reported earlier, the Ministry of Health expects that COVID-19 incidence in Ukraine may increase in the near future.
"We predict that we will see a peak growth of coronavirus disease across the territory of Ukraine in the near future. Therefore, we suggest imposing rigid measures as our calculations show that we can significantly reduce the number of critical cases with the introduction of additional measures for isolation and limitation of mobility," Deputy Minister of Health Viktor Lyashko said.
