The Cabinet of Ministers will be forced to impose strict quarantine on Ukraine in January. The full list of restrictions will be presented at a government meeting on December 9.
Prime Minister Denis Shmygal announced this on Facebook.
According to him, the weekend quarantine stabilized the epidemic situation and brought down the medical system. This week the number of recovered patients outnumbered new patients three times.
“However, taking into account the dynamics of morbidity, we assume that stricter quarantine measures should be put in place by January,” Shmygal said.
He noted that they were working with local authorities on a list of possible restrictions. Today they support banning or restricting activities:
- festive concerts, discos and nightclubs, on-site public events, hostels, shopping and entertainment centers – 100%
- museums, cinemas and theaters, catering establishments with recreational activities – 95%
- holiday fairs, gyms and fitness centers – 90%
At the same time, local authorities support partial restrictions on public transport (seated passenger transport only), restaurants (delivery or take-out) and hotels (no food and entertainment zones).
We remind you, previously the Head of Sanitation, Doctor Viktor Lyashko, said that the lockdown in January would reduce the number of COVID-19 infections to 6-8 thousand per day.
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted that he had recommended against implementing the December lockdown.
