The Cabinet of Ministers extended the quarantine until July 31

There was infor­ma­tion that the gov­ern­ment decid­ed to extend the adap­tive quar­an­tine for Ukraini­ans. Due to the increase in coro­n­avirus inci­dence in the coun­try, restric­tive mea­sures to com­bat the pan­dem­ic have been extend­ed until July 31!

Adaptive quarantine extended in Ukraine


The last weeks have been a real test for Ukraine, as the dai­ly increase in covid-infect­ed peo­ple left much to be desired. Only in the last 24 hours, as of June 16, 758 new con­firmed cas­es were record­ed.

Due to the unsta­ble epi­demi­o­log­i­cal sit­u­a­tion, the Cab­i­net of Min­is­ters of Ukraine decid­ed to extend the cur­rent adap­tive quar­an­tine until July 31. The essence of this quar­an­tine was the grad­ual eas­ing of restric­tive mea­sures so that the peo­ple could return to work and the coun­try’s econ­o­my resumed.

Quarantine extended until July 31


“Due to the increase in coro­n­avirus patients, we will extend the adap­tive quar­an­tine until July 31 of this year,”

Prime Min­is­ter Denys Shmy­hal said at a gov­ern­ment meet­ing.

The prime min­is­ter recalled that over the past sev­en days, 4,853 peo­ple have been diag­nosed with coro­n­avirus in the coun­try. Among these was the hos­pi­tal­ized Ele­na Zelen­skaya.

“And this is the largest num­ber for the entire time of the pan­dem­ic in Ukraine. Many of us per­ceived the weak­en­ing of quar­an­tine mea­sures as the abo­li­tion of quar­an­tine and, accord­ing­ly, we have today the first sad results,”

Shmy­hal not­ed.

Once again, he stressed that the weak­en­ing of quar­an­tine mea­sures does not mean the end of the pan­dem­ic. The threat of get­ting sick is still there and, judg­ing by the num­ber of new cas­es, it is very seri­ous.

“We under­stand that peo­ple are tired of quar­an­tine in any form, but now there is no more effec­tive way to counter the spread of the virus,”

the prime min­is­ter added.

Quarantine in Ukraine July


Shmy­gal urged Ukraini­ans “not to relax and not to break away from real­i­ty.” Accord­ing to him, it is very impor­tant to con­tin­ue to observe the mask regime, social dis­tance and care­ful­ly mon­i­tor hygiene. Only these mea­sures will help pro­tect your­self and oth­ers until there are effec­tive drugs or treat­ment pro­to­cols.

The gov­ern­ment also intends to tight­en quar­an­tine if nec­es­sary. The Cab­i­net of Min­is­ters has already updat­ed the mech­a­nisms, based on which, in regions with a sig­nif­i­cant increase in the num­ber of peo­ple infect­ed with COVID-19, they will strength­en restric­tive mea­sures — they will ban events, trans­port, etc.

Recall that adap­tive quar­an­tine was intro­duced from May 22 to June 22. Dur­ing this time, the author­i­ties planned to ease quar­an­tine mea­sures every ten days, sub­ject to all pre­cau­tion­ary con­di­tions. So, parks, squares, hair­dressers, beau­ty salons, sum­mer play­grounds of cafes and restau­rants were opened, and lat­er pub­lic trans­port and gyms resumed work.
