The city authorities did not make any decisions to close Kyiv on entry and exit if at least one case of infection with a coronavirus is found in the city. The first deputy head of Kyiv City State Administration Mykola Povoroznyk reported about it on his Facebook page.
"I officially declare that no one is going to close the city. As of now, no decisions on the restriction of entry and exit from the city have been made," Povoroznyk said.
He also emphasized that such restrictions could be applied only after a separate decision of the Permanent Commission on technogenic environmental security and emergency was made or normative documents were adopted at the state level.
As we reported earlier, the extra measures for the prevention of Covid-19 coronavirus spread are applied in Kyiv.
Schools, cinema theatres and shopping malls in the Ukrainian capital are closed. The city is under quarantine since March 12. Mass events involving more than 200 people are temporarily banned, too. Public transport is disinfected before the departure in the morning.
