According to Milovanov, in Austria, the Czech Republic and the UK dismissed the citizens pay for the care of 80% of their salary.
“The average salary in Ukraine is around 10-11 thousand. The number of labor force 17.4 million people. Suppose 5 million people (30% of the workforce) will need support. And the state will pay, say, 80% of wages in developed countries and 50% of 5 thousand UAH”, – suggested the former Minister.
In this case, according to the calculations Milovanova, total expenditure will amount to UAH 25 billion per month. In that case the quarantine will last 3-4 months, the cost will increase to 100 billion.
