The government hopes that in three weeks, COVID-19 patients will already recover, so that we can begin to weaken the quarantine measures.
This was announced in a letter from Prime Minister Denis Shmygal.
“Ukraine cannot afford not to work for six months, or even two to three months. According to our estimates, in three weeks, COVID-19 patients should recover. And the restrictions introduced will prevent the disease from spreading further, “said Schmigal.
According to the head of government, if the dynamics of a fall in the incidence rate are registered, then at the end of April it will be possible to begin a gradual weakening of quarantine measures.
The Prime Minister added that people of working age will go to work first.
“If the dynamics of a fall in the incidence rate are recorded, at the end of April, we will be able to begin a gradual weakening of quarantine measures. This process will take place in several stages. First, people of working age will go to work. At the same time, the circulation of public transport will be restored. This will allow us to start the economic recovery from the beginning of May, “said Shmygal.

He stressed that this would not mean weakening other quarantine measures. “Since the threat of the spread of the coronavirus in three weeks will not go away, restrictions on walks, public gatherings and other entertainment will continue to apply,” added the Prime Minister.
