The Ministry of Health is considering lifting the quarantine restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, its Viktor Lyashko has told journalists, RBC-Ukraine reports.
According to him, the authorities have already begun to revise the Cabinet of Ministers' resolution which had introduced the quarantine. Preparations will soon begin to cancel this resolution, as it entails both anti-epidemic restrictions and other actions related to business entities during quarantine. However, it cannot be cancelled immediately due to economic factors.
"We are considering cancelling all this. However, we need to prepare for this. We will now assess the state of readiness to lift all quarantine restrictions. That is why we are now conducting an internal audit and potentially preparing to come out with an official position and say that quarantine will be cancelled as of this or that date," the minister said.
The Cabinet of Ministers extended the state of emergency and quarantine throughout Ukraine due to COVID-19 until 30 June. At the time, it was noted that the vaccination rate in Ukraine remained insufficient to form collective immunity to COVID-19.
