The beaches in Kyiv will not open on June 1, despite the relevant order of the Kyiv City State Administration, as RBC-Ukraine reports, referring to the comment of chief sanitary doctor of Kyiv, Oleh Ruban.
According to him, now the State Consumer Service and the Department of Emergency Situations are conducting a survey of 14 beach areas in the capital city. According to the research results, the beaches should be issued the so-called "sanitary passport". Without it, the beaches will not open.
"All these measures have already begun, they can be carried out 7-10 days. Therefore, we can say that in the most promising option, the opening of the beaches will take place on June 7-10," Ruban said.
As for laboratory testing of water in reservoirs, in particular, in the Dnieper, the corresponding measurements will be made later.
"The water in the pond can only be tested after a temperature of 17-18 degrees. Today, this temperature is 13-14 degrees. Later, we can conduct a laboratory study of water and sand, as well as drinking water in fountains. Then we can talk about opening beaches," the official added.
As we reported before, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine extended the program for economic stimulus to overcome the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic.
