Such an adaptive quarantine mechanism will be used during a year.

Health Minister Maksym Stepanov noted that if there is a negative tendency, the restrictions will be returned.

“The mitigation, which we plan from May 11, will be imposed on the terms of the adaptive quarantine. We have regions with quite a high level of incidence with coronavirus. That is why we cannot mitigate quarantine everywhere equally,” Stepanov said.
