Public events will be cancelled in the near future due to the outbreak of coronavirus in Ukraine. Deputy Minister of Health and Chief Sanitary Doctor Viktor Liashko said this during a briefing broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV Channel.

Unfortunately, we will have to introduce restrictive anti-epidemic measures in the near future,” he said.

According to Liashko, these are forced measures that will help reduce the large crowds as the coronavirus is transmitted by airborne droplets.

Meanwhile, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky arrived in the Poltava region with a working visit. He is expected to meet quarantined evacuees from China in Novi Sanzhary.
