When tough quarantine measures were introduced in Ukraine in March, the number of infected was less than 100 cases per day. Now the numberexceeds 700 per day. Despite this, the Ministry of Health and the government are not considering a return to strict restrictions. This is reported by chief sanitary doctor of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko during an online briefing.
"The weakening of quarantine and an increase in the number of infected people - this shows the correctness of the strategy chosen by the state regarding the introduction of strict quarantine at the beginning of the epidemic. Now we are not considering a return to more stringent measures, since Ukraine introduced adaptive quarantine," he said in response to a question from journalists.
