As of early June 15, Ukrainian doctors confirmed 31,810 cases of Covid-19 disease across the country. 656 new cases were observed over the last 24 hours. Maksym Stepanov, the Healthcare Minister, reported that on at a briefing on Monday morning.
According to the official, 901 people have succumbed to the disease since the epidemic reached Ukraine. 14,253 people recovered.
Citizens refuse to obey the lockdown measures in the Ukrainian capital, and this is what caused the record-large number of Covid-19 cases in Kyiv on June 11. Volodymyr Bondarenko, the advisor of Kyiv mayor said so on the air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
The official reiterated that certain public places, such as restaurants, cafes, and markets, are still dangerous for citizens. Kyiv city state administration urges the citizens to abide by quarantine restrictions.
"For most of our compatriots, weakened lockdown and the opportunity to get back to their jobs were somehow equal to ending of the quarantine, which is why they breach simple quarantine restrictions, such as wearing protective equipment and keeping social distance. So we begin to observe a massive spread. This is one of the reasons for the increasing numbers of infected people today", - Bondarenko said.
Earlier, medics confirmed 95 new cases of Covid-19 in Kyiv on June 11 alone. That number became the all-time record in this city since the epidemic reached Ukraine.
