Ukraine scraps weekend lockdowns against COVID pandemic: PMReuters | Updated: 02-12-2020 18:11 IST | Created: 02-12-2020 17:37 IST
Ukraine has lifted weekend lockdown restrictions in place to fight the spread of the coronavirus pandemic but is still considering whether to introduce a tighter lockdown at a later stage, Prime Minister Denys Shmygal said on Wednesday.
The government last month introduced a lockdown at weekends, closing or restricting most businesses except essential services such as grocery shops, pharmacies, hospitals and transport. Shmygal told a televised government meeting that the measure had brought down the spread of cases and stabilized the situation in hospitals.
