"We have already developed a normative act that will regulate quarantine restrictions in Ukraine. The quarantine is planned to be extended until April 30. The restrictions are planned to be eased," he said.

In particular, it is planned to:

  • extend the opening hours of public catering;
  • allow events with 50% occupancy of the halls (no more than one person per 5 square meters).

At the same time, Stepanov said that strict quarantine restrictions can be introduced in a certain region. For their introduction, it will be determined if two criteria simultaneously exceed the established norms.

The minister said that under strict quarantine restrictions, work of public transport will not be suspended.

Meanwhile, after the beginning of vaccination campaign in Ukraine, the government plans to complete five million inoculations every month.

"If we correctly assume the capabilities of our healthcare system, we will be able to complete approximately five million inoculations monthly. And that's without including the rooms that are used for routine vaccinations," Chief Sanitary Doctor Lyashko said.

According to him, under the condition that there is enough vaccine and public attention, the mentioned number of injections can be increased twice, up to 10,000,000 per month.
