Ukraine will be in the "red" quarantine zone no earlier than November and the lockdown cannot be avoided. It was reported by the chief sanitary doctor of Ukraine Ihor Kuzin on the air of the 1 + 1 TV channel.
"In the near future, Ukraine will leave the "green" zone. We will be forced to introduce the "yellow "zone, where, for example, there will be stricter restrictions on visiting mass events or gyms," he said.
The transition to the "yellow" zone Kuzin called "a conditional alarm that the number of potential new cases will grow in the near future."
According to him, there is still no specific figure at which a lockdown can be introduced in Ukraine.
When asked whether it would be possible to avoid a lockdown, Kuzin replied: "In my opinion, no. But if we talk about the" red "level of danger, it will not be until November."
Earlier media reported that Kyiv was preparing to introduce a lockdown on September 15. It was reported that the restrictive measures would apply to the work of the private sector: cafes, restaurants, beauty salons and other institutions, as well as the public transport system, including the metro.
The head of the State Service on Food Safety and Consumer Protection in Kyiv Oleh Ruban denied this information, noting that the increase of quarantine measures is possible only if Kyiv enters the yellow or red quarantine zone.
