All educational institutions and kindergartens will resume work on Wednesday, November 25.

The state anti-epidemic committee took the relevant decision at its sitting on Friday, the press service of the Kyiv City State Administration reported.

"The quarantine at all schools and higher educational institutions of Kyiv will end on November 25. The work of all kindergartens will be resumed," First Deputy Head of Kyiv City State Administration Irena Kylchytska said.

According to her, the committee has taken this decision because the infection rate of flu and acute respiratory disease has decreased among the population of the city.

This is not a wise decision. Results can be more dangerous than before.

The Vaccine is a weapon against humanity. It is more likely to maim or kill you, than keep you from getting the flu. Read the inserts! The ones in the U.S. Say the have mercury, adjuvants, and are untested. (they tested a "similar" vaccine. The inserts in the U.S. say they can cause Guillon-Berea syndrome. Look it up. Vaccine reactions ranging from neurological to death have been reported world wide. A healthy diet and immune system are the best ways of fighting this disease. Good luck ukraine. r
