The Government does not plan to change the quarantine management system in Ukraine in the near future and to abandon adaptive quarantine, but in case of a significant increase in morbidity rate in more than 10 regions, quarantine may be intensified throughout the country.
The Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal announced at a press conference dedicated to 100 days of activities of the incumbent Government.
According to him, within the framework of adaptive quarantine, the restrictions have been relaxed as a whole in the State. "But in a number of areas, they have not even switched to the second stage of quarantine, not to mention the third or subsequent stages," the Head of Government added.
Apart from that, the PM stressed that the Government is working closely with regional heads, city heads and other local government officials. "Each of these leaders within the framework of their responsibility, understanding the level of threat and the morbidity rate, takes concrete measures and has all the tools to make decisions at the level of commissions of technogenic and environmental safety and to introduce tougher measures," explained Denys Shmyhal. He also added that adaptive quarantine has proven to be an effective mechanism, so the Government is not planning to change this system in the near future.
"If we see a significant increase in the incidence rate in ten or more regions, it will be a reason to decide to strengthen quarantine measures in the country," said the Prime Minister, adding that nobody is immune to the second wave of the pandemic, but to a large extent, it depends on the Ukrainian society and on the attitude of people to the observance of measures that limit the spread of the infection.
