Quarantine restrictions in Ukraine will remain in place after the end of the January lockdown and will last at least throughout this year, that's per the sources in the Cabinet of Ministers.

Businesses will be allowed to resume operations after January 24, however, general restrictive measures could be retained in Ukraine even until 2023, Obozrevatel reported citing the source.

These plans are based on the outlook voiced by medical experts who believe by that time the majority of the population will have already contracted and recovered from the coronavirus.
