The level of morbidity is extremely high in Ivano-Frankivsk region. Thus, from Monday, February 22, there will be introduced a "red" level of epidemiological danger. The corresponding decision was made during a meeting of the local commission on technogenic and ecological safety and emergencies.
Now, in many settlements of Prykarpattia bed occupancy is over 90%.
Ukraine's PM Denys Shmygal noted that Ivano-Frankivsk region has one of the highest levels of morbidity per 100 thousand population and the second highest level in the number of occupied beds - an average of 73%.
At the same time, there are 9,339 active patients in the region, which is more than in the city of Kyiv.
"Without additional restrictive anti-epidemic measures, it is impossible to overcome or contain this rapid spread of coronavirus disease," Chief Sanitary Doctor Viktor Lyashko said during the meeting.
The "red" level of epidemiological danger will be in effect from February 22 to February 28.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian authorities intend to introduce adaptive quarantine next week. This was reported by Prime Minister Denys Shmygal during the session of the government.
"Ukraine will return to the model of adaptive quarantine. Various restrictions will be established depending on the epidemic situation in the regions. There are four levels of epidemic danger, each of which has clear restrictions and criteria. I emphasize that the decision will be imposed next week so that every Ukrainian citizen will be able to get acquainted with it in advance," the official said.
