Easter in pandemic: Zelensky urges Ukrainians to be prudent.

President Volodymyr Zelensky calls on Ukrainians to be prudent while celebrating Easter amid a pandemic.

He said this at a traditional conference call on combating the coronavirus pandemic, according to the official website of the head of state.

In particular, the president raised the issue of preparations for the Easter holidays in a pandemic.

"We already have experience in celebrating such important holidays. Although we continue vaccinations, crowds of people still pose a threat. I personally understand how important Easter is, but the pandemic is adjusting our plans. I am sure that we will all have many more holidays ahead, and we will gather with family and friends again, but this year we need to be prudent," he stressed.

In addition, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal noted that the state is preparing for the Easter holidays during a pandemic. The head of government also said that 14,000 fewer people got infected across Ukraine last week than in the previous week. According to him, several regions in central and western Ukraine are close to leaving the "red zone", but the situation in Kyiv remains complicated.

As reported, Ukraine recorded 6,506 new coronavirus cases on April 18.

This year, Orthodox Easter is marked on May 2.
