Ukraine won't return to strict quarantine - Zelenskyi
Despite 6-7 thousand patients with coronavirus every day, Ukraine doesn't plan strict quarantine.
Volodymyr Zelenskyi stated this during an interview with four TV channels, TSN reports.
Zelenskyi is sure that such restrictions can completely stop our economy.
He assures that the issues of additional medical equipment, medical support, and the number of doctors are now being given maximum efforts.
In addition, the president announced the production of a Ukrainian vaccine against coronavirus. It's been developed for over half a year. It is currently undergoing testing.
"We can't talk about it because we have to go through clinical trials, and it's true, we have no right. To tell the truth, it's unique. It's not pathos or populism. It's unique because it's not like the others. We have materials that they conducted the research, but not on people. I can't talk about the timeline today, but you have to understand our approach: despite our Ukrainian vaccine, if someone has a confirmed vaccine earlier, we will buy it," Zelenskyi said.
To recap, some days ago, Volodymyr Zelenskyi promised to return strict quarantine in Ukraine if the number of new coronavirus cases daily exceeds 9,5 thousand.
In recent weeks, Ukraine has seen a significant increase in the number of new patients with COVID-19, including the critically ill and fatal. In a month, almost 150,000 people became infected with the coronavirus.
