"Recently, the epidemiological situation in the capital has gotten worse. You can see how many new cases we have every day. Restrictions have been eased because we understand that business must work, people need to earn money. That the economy needs to rise. But, unfortunately, many residents of the capital have begun ignoring the basic safety rules. People do not wear masks while using public transport and in public places where there is the highest risk of infection. They do not keep the distance, they keep gathering in large numbers," the mayor of Ukraine’s capital emphasized.
Vitaliy Klitschko also named relevant conditions for the possible lockdown strengthening.
"The virus has not stepped back. And if the number of patients increases and the number of vacant beds in support hospitals decreases significantly in the coming days, we will be forced to return to strict restrictions. Including public transport. And, I emphasize, we are getting closer to applying such a decision," he stated.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine's Minister of Health Maksym Stepanov stated that the country's overall Covid-19 morbidity was 2.6%.
