The Cabinet of Ministers plans to limit the amount of time people spend outside during the lockdown. This was announced by Minister of Health Maksym Stepanov on the air of Pravo na Vladu (Right for the Power) talk show.
"In fact, I think it is necessary that we do not have an Italian or Spanish scenario, we need to tighten the lockdown. There is no other way. What will the measures, approved by the government, be after this governmental decree is made public in the near future? They will provide the limit of people’s movement during their stay on the street. All sports grounds, all squares will be closed. Any kind of mass events will be banned. This will also apply to personal protective equipment. This will also apply to the fact that it will not be possible to move even by two," the minister said.
As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky once again called on Ukrainian citizens not to violate the quarantine regime.
“We continue to stay at home! Once again, I ask you to grow up! You know, there is a well-known fact that after the Chernobyl accident, higher authorities gathered people for the May Day demonstration. Nobody was afraid then, because 'the radiation is invisible.' Coronavirus is also invisible,“ the president said.
