After May 22, Quarantine Will Be Extended – Shmygal
After May 22, the government will extend the quarantine since Ukraine is still at the peak of the incidence of COVID-19.
This is what Prime Minister Denis Shmygal said on “Snіdanku z 1 + 1”.
“Officially quarantined until May 22, but it is not the final date. We will extend it,” he said.
According to Shmygal, the government is currently developing when each of the 5 quarantine steps is introduced.
“Today it is difficult to predict. We are now at the top of the incidence rate. We are going exactly the last seven to eight days. We have not increased the number of patients in percentage. We have even decreased slightly the ratio of patients to those who are already sick. We have not had a day, when the number of people recovered has exceeded or was equal to the number of cases. This is a very important turning point, when we understand that the peak has passed, “added the Prime Minister.
