Ukraine extends lockdown measures as it expects peak will hit in early May
Ukraine will extend coronavirus lockdown measures until May 11 after projections show it peaking early next month, the country’s Cabinet of Ministers said Wednesday.
“We need to tell people exactly when and what will be opened, and what the government’s plan of action is,” a statement from President Volodymyr Zelensky’s office read. “Peak incidence is expected in early May. People need to understand whether it will be possible to walk in the parks, go to hairdressers, notaries, lawyers and other businesses.”
The government was considering various options for modifying coronavirus restrictions to boost the morale of citizens and to help restart the economy, according to the statement.
