Despite the deteriorating epidemiological situation and the high incidence of flu in Ukraine, people are still crossing the Slovak-Ukrainian border, the spokesperson for the Border Police Directorate in Sobrance, Agneša Kopernická, told TASR on November 8.

Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák announced on Saturday, November 7 that Slovakia would close its border crossing at Ubľa in Prešov region on the border with Ukraine as of 7:00 on Sunday. As a result, only one border crossing with Ukraine at Vyšné Nemecké is still in operation.

According to Kopernická, on the back of the closure of Ubľa, the border police are now expecting heavier traffic at Vyšné Nemecké. Before the shutdown at Ubľa, the number of people crossing at this border crossing dropped by one-third while traffic at Vyšné Nemecké was down by one-half.

Kopernická added that Slovakia has asked the Ukrainian authorities not to let people from areas worst-hit with the flue to cross into Slovakia. TASR
