Ukraine – COVID-19 situation overview No. 8

As the number of new confirmed COVID-19 cases continues to grow, the Government of Ukraine has extended quarantine restrictions in the country until 31 December 2020 and made changes to the criteria for adaptive quarantine. The decision limits the opening hours of restaurants and other catering establishments, and also toughens the restriction on holding mass events.

The division of the country into the quarantine zones was reviewed and subsequent regulations were introduced. The "red" zone will now include the following regional (oblast) centers: Zhytomyr, Uzhhorod, Ivano-Frankivsk, Mykolayiv, Poltava, Sumy, Rivne, Kharkiv, Khmelnytsky, Chernihiv and Chernivtsi. According to data provided by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, currently, all regions in Ukraine are not ready to ease quarantine measures.
