Health Minister Maksym Stepanov denies that a curfew will be imposed in Ukraine and predicts the introduction of a "weekend" quarantine.

He announced this on the air of the Snidanok z 1+1 program, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"Yes, there will be no curfew. We are considering strengthening quarantine restrictions. I do not exclude that we will offer a "weekend" quarantine,” said Stepanov.

He stressed that in order to introduce a curfew, the Verkhovna Rada must first introduce a state of emergency in the country, having approved the corresponding presidential decree.

In turn, the President signs a decree on the introduction of a state of emergency on the proposal of the National Security and Defense Council or the Cabinet of Ministers.

There is no such a proposal now, according to Stepanov.

The minister stressed that the a "weekend" quarantine implies the introduction of more stringent restrictions on weekends.

In particular, a ban on the operation of shops and a restriction of the work of public catering establishments, which will be able to serve visitors only in the "take-away" mode, are possible.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Cabinet of Ministers extended the adaptive quarantine until the end of 2020.
