In particular, Volyn, Donetsk, Zakarpattia, Rivne, Ternopil, and Chernihiv regions are not ready for the easing of quarantine.

Ukrainian Health Ministry says six Ukrainian regions are not ready for the easing of the quarantine-related restrictions, as the incidence of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases there exceeds the limit.

In particular, Volyn, Donetsk, Zakarpattia, Rivne, Ternopil, and Chernihiv regions are not ready for the easing of quarantine, the ministry said.

The transfer of the regions to the next quarantine stage, which provides for the easing of restrictions, is possible when the epidemiological situation in a region meets certain criteria, namely the target indicator of bed occupancy in hospitals should be below 50%, the rate of testing is more than 24 per 100,000 people within seven days, the percentage of positive results of PRC tests is less than 11%, and the dynamics (comparison of the epidemic situation of the last week with the previous one) should be below 10%.

As UNIAN reported earlier, some 800 new cases of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 were reported in Ukraine in the past day, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 52,843 as of the morning of July 11.
