Epidemiologist Kateryna Soiak has said Ukraine will see the results of a lockdown introduced until January 24 two weeks after its completion.

"We will see the results of enhanced restrictions only two weeks after their completion. This is approximately the beginning of February. We should see a decline in the ascertainment rate. An adaptive quarantine must be in effect in the period when the enhanced restrictions are lifted and there are still no results," she told the Segodnya newspaper.
