The head of the State Consumer Service in Kyiv, Oleh Ruban, says the weekend quarantine has yielded no effective result in fighting the spread of COVID-19.

The official considers it necessary to introduce a full lockdown as soon as possible, RBC-Ukraine reports.

It isn't feasible to consider imposing the lockdown in individual regions.

"There should be a single solution throughout the country. It is necessary to introduce a lockdown throughout the country in the near future. The weekend quarantine has not yielded results in terms of efficiency," Ruban said.
