He added that it's too soon to be talking about the end of the quarantine, since Ukraine is about to face the peak of the coronavirus disease. 

"In the active phases of pandemic, the number of patients grows drastically, overloading the healthcare system. To put it simply, the number of patients becomes so big that there's not enough doctors, medications or space in hospitals. Unfortunately, that already happened in many countries", Stepanov said.
