Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal stated this during the Svoboda Slova talk show on ICTV on Monday evening, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“Today, more than half a million people are jobless and officially registered as unemployed. This is a challenge that we are also dealing with, and we must first create conditions for new jobs,” the PM said.
According to him, since the beginning of lockdown, 276,000 have received the status of unemployed, and 150,000 of them have already found employment.
As reported, on March 12, the Government introduced quarantine in Ukraine to counter the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). A so-called adaptive lockdown is currently in place in Ukraine until June 22.
On April 24, Shmyhal released a five-stage lockdown exit plan in Ukraine.
As of June 16, Ukraine reported 32,476 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases. Some 666 new cases were confirmed over the past day.
