Mokan emphasized the official completion of quarantine-related restrictive measures is the last, fifth stage of a gradual exit.

"Therefore, it will be possible to talk about the end of the quarantine and a return to the normal functioning of the state at the end of June-July or maybe in August or September – everything will depend on the epidemiological situation and statistics on the coronavirus incidence/mortality rate," he wrote on Facebook on May 4.

Mokan said the complete end of the quarantine means the full resumption of public transport services, the work of shopping malls and mass contacts between people.

"Such things with almost 100% certainty could lead to an epidemic outbreak and the need to introduce strict quarantine measures again," he added.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukraine's Cabinet of Ministers on Monday extended the coronavirus-related quarantine in the country until May 22.
