In particular, the measures include the mandatory use of face masks and a limited number of people outdoors.

Coronavirus cases are expected to peak over Easter, the press service said. "To prevent this, the authorities have negotiated with all television groups on the broadcast of Easter church services. So far, only three TV channels have not responded regarding such broadcasts, but negotiations with them are under way," it said.

Today, 20,000 law enforcement officers are on duty, monitoring how Ukrainians have been observing the quarantine in Ukraine, it added.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Ukraine rose to 669 as of 10:00 Kyiv time on April 1.
