The quarantine in Ukraine has been extended until May 11 due to the violation of restrictive measures for the Easter holidays.
Deputy Minister of Health, Chief Medical Officer of Health Viktor Lyashko, said this on the “Right to Power” program, reports a correspondent for Ukrinform.
“We record certain violations of quarantine measures which cause certain overvoltages, but not the load peaks and not the growth peaks, which go beyond the limits of the growth peak that we allow. Therefore, the quarantine measures have been extended until the 11th day (May 11 – ed.), Because there have been certain violations of the quarantine measures that can lead to their results, “said Lyashko.
