To have COVID-19 curbs lifted, regions, cities and towns in Ukraine should meet a set of criteria.

Such criteria reflect measures to control the spread of the virus, hospitals' capacities, and the ability of the healthcare system as a whole to counter the spread of COVID-19, the ministry said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, 731 new cases of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 were reported in Ukraine in the past day, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 58,842 as of the morning of July 19.
