“First of all, ritual ceremonies have the greatest risk in burial, where a large crowd of people is possible, where farewell kisses are possible, these are all risk points that must be excluded and prevented. Therefore, we would not like this, but we are forced to recommend reducing the time and number of people who escort people on their last journey with coronavirus disease," - the report said.

Ritual ceremonies for the quarantine period are prohibited, because during their conduct there is a threat of the spread of infection.

Currently, 73 cases of coronavirus infection have been confirmed in Ukraine. Over the past 24 hours, 26 people have been infected with coronavirus in Ukraine, of which 20 in Kyiv, 1 in Kyiv region and 3 in the Ivano-Frankivsk region.
