Ukraine has imposed a temporary ban on most foreigners entering the country until Sept. 28, and extended lockdown measures until the end of October to contain a recent spike in cases.

The council said a total of 133,787 cases were registered in Ukraine as of Sept. 5, with 2,811 deaths and 61,649 people recovering.
