President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky urges not to rush into extending coronavirus quarantine for a long time, APA reports citing Ukrinform.

"We should not rush into extending the quarantine for a long time. We should consider how the situation develops. Everyone is tired of this quarantine. We need a clear framework for how we will extend it, so that people have the opportunity to live safely, so that business can function, so that economy does not stand still. Therefore, as of now, we will extend [quarantine] for a month, but not longer," Zelensky said at a conference call with participation of representatives of the Government and law enforcement agencies, the President’s press service said.

In turn, Health Minister Maksym Stepanov informed that a resolution on changes in quarantine had already been elaborated.
