Lviv region refuses to leave the "red" quarantine zone. The regional state administration appealed to the State Commission for TES and Emergencies. This was stated by the director of the Department of Health Orest Chemeris at a briefing.
According to him, it is now important to comply with quarantine restrictions and vaccinations. Ahead is the Christmas and holiday period, which will be another risk factor, Chemeris clarified.
"There's going to be a meeting of the TEB and Emergency Management Commission on Tuesday. And given the fact that we are defining a positive trend, our indicators allow us to get out of the 'red' zone, we decided at the request of the administration, for now to hold the "red" level of epidemic situation in the territory until a more stable situation," - said Chemeris.
According to the Ministry of Health, two "red" regions - Lviv and Luhansk - have completely stabilized the rates of coronavirus spread.
