The Cabinet of Ministers has published a plan for releasing Ukraine from the lockdown, which the government previously extended until May 11. The Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal wrote this on Telegram.
The Premier noted that the starting point for the implementation of this plan may be observed on May 11, subject to a favorable epidemic situation in the country.
“Each stage has clear indicators and depends on the dynamics of the spread of the disease. A government roadmap for quitting quarantine will make it possible to save the lives of Ukrainians and at the same time gradually restore economic stability,” Shmygal wrote.
This is how Ukraine’s quarantine exit plan looks like:
- Stage 1 - control over distribution, accessibility of medical resources: for 10 consecutive days, the ratio of detected cases among all tested did not change or the daily deviation was kept within 5%;
- Stage 2 - reduction of cases. Unloading the medical system: for 10 consecutive days, the percentage of detected cases among all tested in the country decreases daily, the daily number of people who have recovered remains unchanged or grows;
- Stage 3 - release of the medical system from patients: for 10 consecutive days, the number of people who have recovered double or more the number of new cases. Health facilities are less than 10% full of patients with Covid-19;
- Stage 4 - full control of the outbreaks: for 10 consecutive days, the number of new cases not related to each other is less than 5 per region;
- Stage 5 - is the cessation of the internal transmission of the virus: isolated cases that are associated exclusively with the import of the disease.
As we reported before, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned Ukraine’s Health Ministry about risks of experimental treatment of Covid-19.
