The evacuated Ukrainians signed the obligation on the voluntary quarantine for 14 days during the entrance to the country. However, some of them try to violate the lockdown immediately. The law enforcers may start to control the self-isolation of the Ukrainians due to the coronavirus outbreak as Deputy Interior Minister Anton Herashchenko reported.
“Police started to receive automatically the data from the border guards about the Ukrainians who signed the personal obligations on 14-days quarantine by self-isolation. I do not exclude that following the example of South Korea, Israel and Poland, the state will be forced to appeal to the mobile operators and control the conditions of the quarantine by monitoring the mobile networks,” Herashchenko said.
He cited the example when his acquaintance appealed to him and said that a woman arrived to Boryspil airport from Spain who stated that she was not obliged to spend 14 days in voluntary quarantine.
The border guards assured that a woman signed the obligation and provided a copy of the document.
It turned out that a woman lied to her mother to leave Kyiv and see her son in Lviv.
“Of course, this woman will not go anywhere. If she did, she would violate the terms of the obligation. If police establish that she violated the obligation, she would be detained and fined for 17,000 ($612) or 34,000 hryvnia ($1,224),” Herashchenko said.
As we reported, there are 84 laboratory-confirmed cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus. Thus, over the past 24 hours, 11 new cases have been recorded.
As we reported earlier, according to Prime Minister Denis Shmygal, there is no urgent need to introduce the state of emergency in Ukraine.
