Ukrainian Health Minister Maksym Stepanov says the ministry plans to move on to the next COVID-19 quarantine easing stages on May 22, June 1, June 11, and so on, as it has a clear algorithm for lifting restrictions. However, further relaxing of lockdown measures will depend on certain indicators, he added.

"As per indicators, we also have projected dates when will be able to achieve these indicators. We have developed reference dates: May 22, June 1, June 11 and so on," the RBC Ukraine news agency quoted Stepanov as saying on May 13.

The quarantine relaxation algorithm is expected to be adopted at the next Cabinet meeting, PM added.
