The Cabinet of Ministers, Ukraine's government, has extended the adaptive quarantine until November 1, APA reports citing UNIAN.

The relevant resolution was adopted at a government meeting on Wednesday.

Note that the adaptive quarantine was introduced on August 1. Ukrainian regions were split into the red, green, orange zones depending on hospital load, the average number of PCR and ELISA tests, the ascertainment rate of COVID-19, and daily spread dynamics. Quarantine-related curbs differ in each zone. The mildest ones are in the green zone, the regions included in the red zone have to introduce the toughest restrictive measures.

On August 12, the Cabinet of Ministers, Ukraine's government, decided to combine two indicators by which the incidence of COVID-19 cases in the regions is determined and quarantine zones are established.
