Adaptive quarantine in Ukraine introduced to counter the spread of COVID-19 will not change on Easter and during May holidays.
This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal on his Facebook page.
«The important holidays for Ukrainians are coming, and it is important that the joy of celebrating them is not overshadowed by the increase in morbidity. The government will not change the model of adaptive quarantine during the May holidays, as it demonstrates its effectiveness: this week the Chernivtsi and Odesa regions have already left the "red" zone, where the dynamics of the incidence has stabilized. Several more regions may join them next week.»
