19:34, 7 February 2018

The city hall of Zaporizhya, southeastern Ukraine, decided to shut down the local schools temporarily – until the flu infection rate decreases. The classes are cancelled. The kindergartens, on the other hand, continue to work. 

Previously, local authorities cancelled classes in six regions across Ukraine – mostly in northern and western regions. According to the Healthcare Ministry, over 180,000 people got sick with flu over the last week; no fatal cases were reported.
