The need to strengthen communication on compliance with adaptive quarantine was discussed at a traditional meeting on preventing the spread of coronavirus, chaired by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The meeting was attended by representatives of the Cabinet of Ministers and law enforcement agencies. The government is concerned about the growing number of people who have fallen ill and the widespread non-compliance with quarantine rules after it has been eased.
"Quarantine mitigation will save the economy, but let's not forget that coronavirus has not disappeared, and we must continue to save lives from it. The strict quarantine was not in vain, I am convinced that it saved many lives. However, people continue to die every day from coronavirus complications. We would not like to return to such a rigid framework. Therefore, let us keep our eyes on the ball and remind people that the rules of social distancing and the mask regime must apply. And so far, unfortunately, we can't afford mass entertainment events," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
"We have agreed to mitigation, but people need to be aware of the threat of coronavirus, which has not disappeared," Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said.
At the same time, Head of the National Police Ihor Klymenko said that the celebration of the Trinity had gathered about 200,000 believers in churches. However, the clergy and parishioners followed the rules of social distancing and the mask regime, the holiday passed quietly.
Minister of Health Maksym Stepanov reported that all allowances for April were paid to doctors who directly combat COVID-19.
The issue of launching the international flights was also discussed. Minister of Infrastructure Vladyslav Krykliy said that Ukrainians were not careless after the launch of domestic flights on June 5 and, despite the summer season, the first flights to Odesa were not crowded.
