As of June 17, Ukrainian medics reported already 33,234 cases of Covid-19 in the country. Over the last 24 hours, the disease was confirmed in another 758 people. Maksym Stepanov, Ukraine's Healthcare Minister said so during the briefing.
943 people succumbed to the disease, 31 of them over the last 24 hours. 14,943 people recovered from coronavirus, as the repeated test did not reveal any signs of the virus in their bodies.
Most of the cases are observed in Chernivtsi region (4,082), Kyiv (4,026), Lviv region (3,227) and Rivne region (2,449).
Previously, the government planned to boost the responsibility for Ukrainian MPs for not wearing masks during the quarantine.
Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko claimed that in spite of the increase of daily Covid-19 incidence in Ukraine, the government is not going to re-introduce a tough lockdown mode in Ukraine.
29 of over 270 districts subordinated to the city are now shut off. All entrances and exits are monitored and guarded around-the-clock. Schools have switched to online working mode. Enterprises are working, but the government urges staff to implement flexible work schedules and work at home.
All entrances from Beijing are banned, unless citizens prove there's an urgent need to leave the city. Besides, they must provide a negative test result. Those who enter the city are obliged to pass the test for Covid-19, too.
