New coronavirus strains Delta and Lambda are already circulating in Ukraine, in this regard, new restrictive measures will be introduced in the country, related to mass events. This was stated by the secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov during a briefing.
“You know that two new strains, Delta and Lambda, have appeared, which today cause us concern about the spread in our country. The Minister of Health, Mr. Lyashko, was heard, and in the near future the Cabinet of Ministers will take additional measures to respond to this threat, because it is very dangerous. Because, as you know, to our great regret, they already concern not only the adult population - they also concern children,” Danilov said.
He noted that quarantine restrictions will be associated with mass events. Minister of Health Viktor Lyashko will announce them.
Danilov also added that Ukraine will tighten requirements for countries where Delta strain is recorded.
"There will be even tougher restrictions on countries where Delta is raging. We will put demands to reduce the number of people who travel from there. We do not exclude that the Cabinet of Ministers will take additional measures to these countries," he stressed.
