Ukraine's Chief Medical Officer, Deputy Health Minister Viktor Liashko has elaborated on the quarantine introduced over the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country and measures that may be taken after June 22, the possible deadline for further easing the respective restrictions.
"Now it [the quarantine] will continue until June 22, this is 100%. After that, we will see how the relaxing scheduled for June 10 and June 15 will change the situation. If it does not deteriorate, we will again review the quarantine, which will be adaptive, and its adaptability will probably be at the level of a populated locality rather than at the regional level," Liashko told TV channel Ukraine 24 on June 2.
The official also said that further decisions on lifting the quarantine-related restrictions would depend on the epidemic situation.
"Everything will depend on the situation not only in Ukraine, but also in the European Union countries, which were the first to face the epidemic," he said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, a new stage of easing the quarantine was launched in Ukraine on June 1.
