The Ministry of Health plans to ease travel restrictions on public transport for the red zone. The corresponding request came from the mayors of Ukrainian cities. This was announced by Health Minister Viktor Lyashko on Inter TV channel.
Ukraine will allow more passengers to enter public transport. This is due to the onset of cold weather. People are uncomfortable waiting for a long time at a stop.
"We are moving to a stage where a pandemic becomes a pandemic of unvaccinated people and plus vaccinated people should not suffer because of unvaccinated people," Lyashko said.
It is known that passengers over 18 years of age during a trip in transport are required to carry one of the following documents:
- negative test result for Covid-19 (by PCR or rapid test for antigen), made no later than 72 hours before the day of travel;
- a document confirming receipt of a full course of vaccination with a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization;
- international, domestic or foreign certificate confirming vaccination with the first dose of vaccine (yellow certificate) or the second dose (green certificate);
- a certificate confirming that the person had recovered from Covid-19.
As it was reported, in Kyiv region, it was decided to tighten quarantine restrictions on the use of public transport. From November 13, residents of the region who plan to use public transport must have one of the documents.
