Trade in food, veterinary drugs and medicines is allowed during a strict quarantine, Health Minister Maksym Stepanov said during a press briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday.
"During the strict quarantine from January 8 to January 24, it is allowed to trade in food products in trading areas, at least 60% of which is intended for the sale of food, medicines, medical products, hygiene products, communications, veterinary drugs, feed, seeds, plant protection products. Trade in other groups of goods can only be carried out with targeted delivery of orders," he said, noting that the information about the alleged ban on the sale of medicines and veterinary drugs does not correspond to reality.
"There was also a question about household chemicals. I think today we will make a clarification at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers," he said.
