For the third day in a row, the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 is growing in Ukraine. This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal at a traditional meeting on combating the spread of coronavirus chaired by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The government emphasizes: if this trend continues, the mitigation of quarantine could worsen the epidemiological situation in the country.
"People need to be reminded that thoughtlessness regarding coronavirus protection means poses great threats during the COVID-19 epidemic. It is difficult to find a balance between returning to a normal life and safety. The invisible danger is the worst, because today you do not see the point in the mask, and tomorrow the number of patients will grow," Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed.
The government is still following the chosen plan to ease the restrictive measures, but in the event of a serious deterioration of the epidemiological situation, the schedule may be changed.
At the same time, the Joint Forces Operation Headquarters announced that they were preparing to open checkpoints on the delimitation line on June 10.
