Ukraine is already at the peak of the current wave of coronavirus (COVID-19) disease, Minister of Health of Ukraine Viktor Liashko has said at a briefing on air of the Rada TV channel.
“We already have the peak incidence, because we record 41,000 cases a day,” the minister said.
He also added that during this COVID-19 wave, the number of cases is growing, but not the number of hospitalizations, which in turn reduces a burden on hospital care.
At the same time, according to Liashko, there is a large burden on primary medical care, so the Ministry of Health has taken management decisions that should reduce a burden on family doctors. The latest of these solutions is the introduction of remote calling in sick.
Since Sunday, January 30, Ukraine has been included in the list of high-risk countries for Germany, the Ukrainian Embassy in Germany said. “This means that Ukrainian citizens are required to comply with the requirements for electronic registration and quarantine. For example, travelers from Ukraine must register at www.einreiseanmeldung.de and have a confirmation of registration before arriving in Germany,” the Ukrainian embassy said in a Facebook statement on Sunday.
If you enter Germany with a previous stay in a high-risk area or in an area with different strains of coronavirus during the last ten days, you must go directly to the destination immediately after entering Germany, to carry out home isolation (quarantine).
The embassy explained that after staying in the high-risk zone, visitors must carry out home isolation for ten days, after staying in the zone with different strains of coronavirus – 14 days. During the quarantine it is not allowed to leave the house or apartment and receive guests.
“Fully vaccinated citizens of Ukraine can enter Germany without urgent need. The above general rules of entry apply to this category of persons. Vaccination must be performed with one of the vaccines listed on the website of the Paul Ehrlich Institute. Vaccination with the last required dose must be at least 14 days before entry,” the embassy said.
More information can be found on the website of the Federal Interior Ministry.
Unvaccinated citizens of Ukraine can enter Germany, if necessary, by providing either a negative test result or a certificate of recovery. The list of relevant conditions is posted on the website of the Federal Minister of the Interior.
This requirement applies to persons over six years of age.
“The COVID-19 test (antigen test or PCR test) must be completed a maximum of 48 hours before the (scheduled) time of entry. In case of arrival by transport of the carrier company (for example, airline), the PCR test is allowed to pass at least 48 hours before (planned) moment of the beginning of transportation (for example, time of departure); the antigen test is also allowed to take place a maximum of 48 hours before the (scheduled) start of transportation, if it is carried out by the carrier,” the statement said.
However, if the trip is planned by plane, it is recommended to follow the requirements of individual airlines.
The toughening of quarantine rules will affect primarily unvaccinated citizens, Minister of Health of Ukraine Viktor Liashko has said.“The government is forced to place the unvaccinated people under quarantine as the coronavirus is not retreating. Europe is setting a new continental record for the incidence of COVID-19, and we must take action to save the lives of citizens who have not yet been vaccinated,” he said at a briefing on Tuesday.“The largest number of changes in the quarantine rules concerns the regime in the zones of the yellow level of epidemic danger, in particular, the work of the business. If earlier it could choose the models of activity in the ‘yellow’ zone – not to check documents on vaccination or negative test, but to work in accordance with certain restrictions in the region or to check documents and work without restrictions of this level – now the business is losing such an option,” the minister said.Liashko clarified that people who have not received at least one vaccine against COVID-19 or who do not have a negative test or a certificate of recovery will not be able to take part in all public events, including cultural ones, sports, entertainment, social, religious, etc. at the “yellow” level of epidemic danger. These people will also not be able to visit cinemas and other cultural institutions, gyms, fitness centers, swimming pools, will not be able to use the services of catering establishments, “bars, restaurants, cafes and other establishments will be closed for them.”At the same time, Liashko noted that the work of banks, gas stations, veterinary stores, pharmacies and all food stores in the “yellow” and “red” zones is not limited for the unvaccinated, “however, it is mandatory to comply with anti-epidemic rules – wearing a mask and maintaining physical distance of 1.5 meters.”
