Deputy Health Minister Viktor Liashko says the observation period for Ukrainian and foreign citizens evacuated from China's Wuhan will be 14 days.
Answering a question from journalists about the timing of the incubation period of the novel coronavirus, Liashko confirmed his ministry's information and referred to recommendations by the World Health Organization, the RBC-Ukraine media outlet said.
"This is 14 days minimum. If during the observation an evacuee in quarantine shows symptoms of the disease, he or she will be hospitalized – in an isolation ward that protects against the spread of the disease in the hospital," he said at a press briefing.
At the same time, he said, if the evacuee tests positive for the coronavirus, the term of the quarantine will increase by another two weeks.
