"Currently, lockdown restrictions have been introduced across the country, a nationwide quarantine is in force until February 28, 2021. As for tightened lockdown restrictions, they are effective from January 8, and the Health Ministry's position remains unchanged: they have to be in force until January 24 inclusive. It was provided by a government resolution of December 9, 2020. And we do not support any decisions to lift these restrictions before the deadline that was set earlier," Stepanov said at a briefing on Wednesday.
He said that during the New Year holidays, Ukrainians actively traveled from region to region and had a great number of contacts, so it can be predicted that a great number of citizens were infected with the coronavirus during this time.
Tightened lockdown restrictions were introduced in Ukraine on January 8 and will be in force until January 24 inclusive in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Stepanov said on January 12 that strict lockdown measures in Ukraine should also be extended after January 24, as there are all grounds for this.
