Adaptive quarantine may be more effective in controlling the spread of coronavirus infection in the country. This was announced during a traditional conference call chaired by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
Minister of Health Maksym Stepanov informed that the main reason for the increase in the number of patients in western Ukraine, especially in rural areas, is worship. Such results were shown by epidemiological investigations. The second main reason is public transport, as well as the movement of people for leisure. In addition, the minister said that a large number of people are asymptomatic, thus forming immunity.
"I hope that adaptive quarantine will really be more effective when we will be able to select appropriate control measures for each settlement. The main thing is the maximum localization of the spread of infection. We must avoid peak loads," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal stressed that the coordination of cooperation with law enforcement agencies, which will help implement epidemiological control over the rules of adaptive quarantine, is being finalized.
"I hope this will be the most effective way," he said.
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Ruslan Khomchak said that the situation with the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 in the area of the Joint Forces Operation is stable and under control. He also informed about the situation with the regime of permanent and comprehensive ceasefire, noting that no escalation or offensive actions were recorded in the area of JFO. Isolated shelling is not systemic and reveals uncontrolled emotions or provocations at the lowest level, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces said.
