Ukraine minister joins China evacuees in quarantine

Ukraine's health minister said she will spend two weeks in quarantine with evacuees from coronavirus-hit China after protesters clashed with police and threw stones at returnees over infection fears.

"I will spend the next 14 days with them, in the same premises, under the same conditions," Health Minister Zoryana Skaletska said late Thursday in a statement addressed to the residents of Novi Sanzhary.

The minister added that she was shaken by the panic and aggression.

Zelensky urged compatriots to show solidarity and remember that "we are all human".

Kiev has brought in 45 of its nationals and 27 foreigners, mostly from Latin America, in the central Poltava region from China.
