The Health Ministry of Ukraine is sure that it can prevent the return of the whole Ukraine to quarantine as 112 Ukraine TV channel reported citing Health Minister Maksym Stepanov.

“If we talk about the return of the whole country, it means that currently, the rapid growth takes place in all cities, the beds are occupied or the number of infected people exceeds all rates. I believe we are able to prevent such a situation,” Stepanov stated.
