Adaptive quarantine in Ukraine may be extended until August. This was announced by Prime Minister Denнs Shmygal in an interview with RBC-Ukraine.

"We will obviously continue it (adaptive quarantine - ed.) until August. If we manage to vaccinate most people by Independence Day, of course, we will look for options to mitigate it," Shmygal said.

The head of government stressed that the authorities do not plan to introduce a nationwide lockdown. If the epidemiological situation worsens, restrictions in certain regions may increase, as during the previous outbreak.

"Whether or not there will be new lockdowns depends on discipline, vaccination and how this pandemic develops in the world in general, whether or not new strains appear. These are the main indicators, I think, other indicators that will not affect the adaptive quarantine", added Shmygal.

So far, the quarantine has been extended until June 30.
