Stepanov asks not to go to demonstrations so as not to be infected with COVID-19
The protest rally, which took place on April 29 in the Cabinet of Ministers, carries the risk of obtaining COVID-19 not only for the participants, but also for their families.
Health Minister Maxim Stepanov said this during a briefing after a government meeting on April 29, reports a correspondent for Ukrinform.
“Today’s protest rally under the walls of the Cabinet of Ministers is a great danger not only for its participants, but also for their family members and loved ones. If there was at least one person with coronavirus among the protesters, so everyone without exception was at risk of getting sick among the protesters, not just them, but also all their relatives and friends. Be careful, respect the quarantine rules and stay at home, “said Stepanov .
He recalled that as of April 29 in Ukraine 9,866 patients with COVID-19.

“Looking at these indicators in relation to certain countries, we can say that Ukraine has succeeded in preventing the rapid growth of the disease. The reason is a quarantine. The restrictive measures are painful, but very effective in fight coronavirus disease, “said Stepanov.
He said phasing out the restrictive measures the government is considering after May 11 is only possible if the rate of spread of coronavirus disease is reduced.
