Prime Minister Denis Shmygal hopes that Ukraine’s quarantine will begin on May 11 and stresses that the next steps are not linked to specific dates and can start simultaneously.
He wrote about it on Facebook.
“Last week, we presented a roadmap for leaving the country. We hope that the starting point will come on May 11,” said the head of government.
According to him, the next steps are not linked to specific dates and their launch depends on the dynamics of the disease. In other words, said Shmygal, if the government finds that the number of cases is decreasing, the second, third or fourth stage can start simultaneously. And you won’t have to wait 10 or 20 days to start the next step.
At the same time, he noted, if a significant increase in the number of cases is observed in the country, quarantine measures can again be strengthened.
The Prime Minister stressed that each ministry and department was responsible for formulating detailed explanations on the operating conditions of the facilities to be opened.
Thus, said Shmygal, the Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Health have already developed clear working criteria and algorithms to control food markets. This, he said, will be an opportunity to make a decision on Wednesday to open more than 280 markets across Ukraine. This list can be extended if other markets can offer suitable working conditions, said the head of government.
In addition, he noted, at certain stages, it is planned to open certain institutions with restrictions.
“We will ease these restrictions every step of the way. This applies to institutions, cafes, gyms and more,” said Shmygal.

As indicated, in Ukraine from March 12, 2020, quarantine was introduced as part of the fight against the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus infection.
Now the quarantine has been extended until May 11, 2020.
On April 24, Shmygal unveiled a quarantine exit plan in Ukraine, which consists of 5 steps. According to him, the implementation of this plan could start on May 11, subject to a favorable epidemic situation.
In Ukraine, 9,009 cases of COVID-19 have now been confirmed, including 392 in the past 24 hours.
