Strict quarantine in Ukraine should be in effect until January 24 – Stepanov
Enhanced quarantine restrictions in Ukraine should be in effect for 16 days - until January 24, the Ministry of Health does not support their early cancellation, Health Minister Maksym Stepanov said during a press briefing in Kyiv on Wednesday.
"We neither supported, nor made any decisions regarding the termination of these restrictions earlier than the established period. We believe that the enhanced quarantine restrictions should be in effect precisely during this period of 16 days," he said.
"We predict that many people have become infected during the New Year holidays," the minister added.
