A total of 31,810 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 901 deaths were reported in Ukraine on Monday, while 14,253 patients have recovered, the country’s health ministry said.
In the past 24 hours, 10,236 tests were performed in Ukraine, and 656 were positive.
Besides, 2,350 children and 5,537 health workers have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the beginning of the outbreak.
In the past five days, Ukraine saw a rapid increase in the number of new COVID-19 cases.
Health Minister Maxym Stepanov on Monday said Ukraine would not reopen theaters starting from June 15. He appealed to citizens to follow the recommendations of the Ministry of Health, such as wearing masks, using antiseptics and maintaining social distance.
“I want to emphasize once again: We have a growing number of hospitalized people and a growing number of people with pneumonia. All this is a direct consequence of the abolition of quarantine by people who confused the mitigation and abolition of quarantine,”
Stepanov said during a briefing on Monday.
On May 20, the Ukrainian government introduced adaptive quarantine starting from May 22 until June 22.
