As we reported earlier, the Ministry of Health of Ukraine is going to propose introducing strengthened quarantine in epidemic danger zones.
"At today’s session of the government we will suggest imposing stricter restrictions in our country, but without any lockdowns, things that will halt the economy. We understand that this is impossible now, we cannot introduce the second lockdown in the country," Health Minister Maksym Stepanov said.
