The Minister of Health, Maxim Stepanov, is convinced that there will be no peak of coronavirus after the quarantine if the Ukrainians adhere to the recommendations and the plan drawn up by the Ministry of Health and the Cabinet of Ministers.
He said so during a briefing on April 28, according to a Ukrinform correspondent.
“All the measures that we are implementing, implementing from the point of view of the fight against coronaviruses and from the point of view of the introduction of quarantine, I am sure that if we adhere to the recommendations and the plan drawn up by the Ministry of Health, approved by the government, we are able to avoid a peak, “Said Stepanov, answering the question, is it possible that after the end of the quarantine period a new wave of epidemic can begin and if Ukrainian doctors will be able to cope with the peak of incidence.
According to him, the peak is a condition when the medical system is unable to provide medical care to all those who need it.

“So if we adhere to all these quarantine measures, I’m sure a spike is unlikely,” said the Minister of Health.
“Again, I want to emphasize that we are constantly analyzing, including in other countries, how they got out of quarantine, but we find this balance and this load on the medical system and the mitigation of quarantine measures , and I’m sure the situation is, first of all, is fully controlled, and we can avoid any spike in the sense that I said, “said Stepanov.
