The Ukrainian cabinet on Wednesday extended the pandemic-induced state of emergency in the country until December 31
The current state of emergency in the country is in effect until October 31.
The document says that the measure is necessary due to "a significant deterioration" of the epidemiological situation related to the spread of COVID-19 in Ukraine.
Since May, the country has implemented a system of a so-called "adaptive quarantine." All regions are divided into four types of quarantine zones depending on the number of cases. Each zone has its own restrictive measures.
