Stepanov said under what conditions it is possible to move on to the next stage of quarantine mitigation
Health Minister Maxim Stepanov noted that the transition to the next stage of adaptive quarantine is only possible if the relevant criteria introduced by the government are met.
The minister said this during a briefing on Sunday, reports a correspondent for Ukrinform.
“There are now a lot of questions regarding the criteria defined by the government decree on the reduction of quarantine, the second stage of which started with us on May 22. There are 3 signs. Among these signs, the question of number of tests is particularly asked. It is defined as 12 tests per 100,000 people. And they ask if this indicator can be reduced because there is a small number of diseases. I can tell you very simply – if you don’t test not at all, then there will be no number of cases. I mean – on paper, “tepan.
The Minister stressed the importance of the three criteria to mitigate quarantine.
“Consequently, it is clear that all the criteria without exception are both the incidence, that is to say the number of illnesses during the last 7 days, and the number of beds in medical establishments, which should not exceed 50%, and the number of tests in the last 7 days, which should be no less than 12 tests per 100,000 people. They are all very important. And only if these criteria are met, according to our decision, the government’s decision on the introduction of adaptive quarantine, the transition to the next stage may be possible. ” rknul Stepanov.
