Ukraine Committee Meeting On Nov 20th to Decide Terms of Quarantines 11/19/09 7:30am

Ukraine Committee Meeting On Nov 20th to Decide Terms of Quarantines

I believe they have the wrong date inside the article - the heading says the 2oth, but the article says the 29th.


The state anti-epidemic committee at its sitting on Nov. 29 will analyze the information on the fight against flu and acute respiratory diseases in Ukraine and will decide whether to continue or cancel the quarantine, Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko said at a cabinet meeting on Nov. 18.

"I charge you with holding a special sitting of the emergency anti-epidemic committee headed by [First Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine] Oleksandr Turchynov on Nov. 20," she said.

The premier charged the members of the committee with analyzing information from the regions on the fight against the epidemic. Tymoshenko added that the infection rate differs in the various regions of the country: in some regions, including Kyiv, the epidemic threshold has currently been exceeded, while the eastern and southern regions haven't reached it yet. That's why the premier said that at the sitting it is necessary to decide "where and how we will end certain quarantines."

Tymoshenko also said that in the near future the government plans to adopt a strategy of vaccination in the country.
