Authorized quarantine is ineffective. Only a state of emergency will allow us to save time and prepare health care system for a possible outbreak of COVID-19, said Mykola Katerynchuk on the air of NEWSONE.

“There is no cure for coronavirus, no vaccine, our hospitals are not provided with the essentials. The health care system is not ready for an outbreak right now. We need to talk frankly about this. If there is a sharp jump in the disease, we could lose up to 700,000 of our at-risk citizens. Therefore, to win the time, to prepare a health care system, a legal emergency regime is required. There are no other options. Arguments like “we bury the economy” or “this is the end of democracy” are the irresponsible position of politicians.
We have to make time for Ukrainians. “Quarantine games” are ineffective. A state of emergency is required. Verkhovna Rada and the President must go into a state of emergency”, said Mykola Katerynchuk.
