Zelenskyi believes introducing a travel ban for foreigners coming to Ukraine is right: We have a second wave of COVID-19
President Volodymyr Zelenskyi believes that current statistics of 3,000 sick Ukrainians a day means a second wave of COVID-19 in Ukraine.
He stated this during a joint press conference with the President of Slovakia Zuzana Čaputová in Bratislava.
"Then (during a first wave in the spring – ed.) we had 100 to 300 sick people per 40 million Ukrainian citizens. Today we have 3 thousand a day. Unfortunately, a second wave has come," the head of the state declared.
He also stated that the decision to ban foreigners from entering Ukraine was the right one.
"We cannot risk both Ukrainians and citizens from other countries coming to Ukraine. So, when this situation stabilizes, Ukrainian borders will be open," Zelenskyi assured.
To recap, our country introduced a travel ban for foreigners in Ukraine on August 28, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The ban includes a few exceptions. It will last until September 28.
