The total polymerase chain reaction testing of all people who returned from abroad is economically unreasonably as 112 Ukraine TV channel reported citing Deputy Healthcare Minister and Chief Sanitary Inspector Viktor Lyashko.

“Why we do not hold the total testing? There is no sense as there is such term as the incubation period. It will not be grounded economically and epidemically,” he noted.

Lyashko added that the only decision, in this case, is the observation of everyone who comes to Ukraine.

“Yesterday, the government ordered to oblige everyone returning to Ukraine to pass observation in the place determined by the regional state administrations. Moreover, the regulation obliges to self-isolate each contact person. If self-isolation cannot be provided at home, they will be sent to observation,” Lyashko added.

As we reported, in Ukraine, the number of patients, infected with Covid-19, has increased to 480. In the past 24 hours, 62 new cases have been registered.
