Earlier, Denys Shmygal, the Prime Minister of Ukraine, claimed that the peak of coronavirus sickness rate in Ukraine is expected to take place at the beginning of May. The head of the government was among the officials present at the conference gathered and led by the President. Shmygal addressed the build-up of the disease in the country.
"We've got to specify and tell the people when and what will be opened [after the lockdown is over], what is the clear plan of the government's actions. The peak of morbidity is expected in early May. People should understand if they can take a walk in the park, when the barbershops, lawyer offices, and other kinds of business will resume working. I know that the Olympians need to practice to stay in shape. All people should have a clear vision of how and when the lockdown may soften", the Prime Minister said.
