If most of the Ukrainian regions end up in the red quarantine zone, there could be another lockdown in this country. Prime Minister Denys Shmygal reported that during the conference timed to the first anniversary in office.
"Of course, if most of the regions are in red zones, chances are we'll need to get back to the model of the lockdown that was imposed before; Ukraine already expeienced this. We really don't want to do this, so we need to turn to the consience of citizens and say this: coronavirus didn't vanish. It's still all over the world. The beginning of the vaccination is just the beginning; the process of vaccination in the whole world will take at least two years. During these two years, people will need to wear masks, use sanitizers, keep the social distance - all the things that we got used to. They will remain", Shmygal said.
Earlier, Prime Minister Denys Shmygal claimed that the third wave of coronavirus pandemic has begun in Ukraine.
