The red quarantine zone is about to be imposed in Kherson region on October 15. The government commission for emergencies made the respective decision. Minister of the Cabinet Oleg Nemchinov posted that on Facebook.
The anti-epidemic measures typical for the red zone will be introduced since Friday midnight.
Cafes, restaurants, theaters and cinema theaters, markets and fitness centers will be closed. Mass events will be banned. However, the restriction will be lifted if 100 % of the staff are vaccinated.
Besides, residents of the red zone can't use public transport without Covid certificates, negative test results or documents confirming that they recovered from coronavirus.
Meanwhile, humanity has covered almost 60% of the way in the fight against coronavirus, but new strains of Covid-19 could significantly delay the end of the pandemic. Top researcher of the World Health Organization Sumiya Swaminathan reported this recently.
