The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has increased from 40 to 55 active patients with COVID-19 per 100,000 people the indicator for the distribution of countries into the "red" and "green" zones.
The government approved the relevant resolution with revision at a meeting on Wednesday.
"The draft act proposes to establish that states with a significant spread of COVID-19 are considered to be those states where the number of active cases of COVID-19 disease exceeds 55 people per 100,000 of population. Previously, this figure was 40. We set it when there were 37 active patients per 100,000 of population in Ukraine.
