Quarantine easing in Ukraine may be considered in late April – health minister
Ukrainian Health Minister Maksym Stepanov has said the issue of easing quarantine measures, including after May 11, will be considered in late April.
"By the end of the month, we will monitor the situation, epidemic developments, and we will consider various options for easing, including after May 11," he told a briefing following a government meeting on April 22, according to an UNIAN correspondent.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the quarantine restrictions over the spread of COVID-19 in Ukraine were extended until May 11.
Along with this, the document provides that all those who will participate in blood donation programs will be able to use public transport.
"Certain groups of workers could be engaged without undergoing mandatory health checkups if they coincide with the quarantine period. That is, we are talking about certain categories of workers who are required to undergo medical examinations, but, unfortunately, they are not able to do this amid the quarantine. Therefore, they are allowed to do this later," he said. "In addition, it is proposed to approve the anti-epidemic procedure related to self-isolation. In particular, we are expanding self-isolation tools. The Diia app has been finalized to monitor persons who are self-isolating," Stepanov said.
