He noted that the peak of the epidemic is possible this week, subject to quarantine.

"According to calculations, the peak will end in the region of May 8-9, if there are no violations of the quarantine regime. That is, this is actually the beginning of end of the epidemic for Ukraine in medical terms", - ​​Shmyhal added.

In this regard, the Cabinet of Ministers considers it possible to begin the first phase of the weakening of quarantine from May 11.

It is planned that parks and recreation areas, hairdressers, beauty salons, outdoor areas of cafes and restaurants will be opened. In addition, the work of public services institutions, as well as museums and libraries, will be allowed.
