The introduction of the weekend quarantine should give a result in two-three weeks, otherwise a total lockdown is possible. This was reported by RBK-Ukraine, referring to the statement of the head of the State Consumer Service of Kyiv Oleh Ruban.
"We will see the result in two-three week period. If there is no result, we can say that this measure is ineffective," Ruban said.
He noted that in this case, a complete lockdown may be introduced in the country.
"The weekend quarantine is one of the steps towards a complete lockdown. If it does not give an effective result, then, indeed, Ukraine need to declare a total lockdown," the head of the Kyiv State Consumer Service believes.
Ruban noted that the weekend quarantine shows different results in different countries.
"In some countries it has a positive effect, in some - negativ, so everything depends on the correct implementation of this measure," he added.
As we reported earlier, the Cabinet of Ministers made a decision to introduce the weekend quarantine all across the country.
The strict quarantine will act from 00:00 a.m. Saturday until 00:00 a.m. Monday. On the weekend, only objects of the critical infrastructure, particularly, groceries, drug stores and transport will work in the country.
The work of shopping malls, sport centers, fitness centers, swimming polls, theaters and holding of the mass events is banned.
Besides, the hosting of people in restaurants, cafes and entertainment facilities is banned.
