“Concerning the opening of large shopping malls – it will be the second wave of lifting of the restrictions. And we will rely only on the incidence statistics. If the outbreak of the infection occurs against we may return to the strict quarantine,” he said.
Klitschko added that the shopping malls will resume work when the restrictions for the work of public transport are lifted.
“We prepare to it. I hope that after May 22, more mitigation will be introduced,” he said.
Schools, kindergartens and playgrounds are still closed in Kyiv.
“The opening of schools and kindergartens, where a great concentration of children to occur, may lead to the outbreak of infection again. The decision not to open schools and kindergartens is tied only with this fact. If the adults may stick to the rules, it is very difficult to control children in kindergartens, schools and playgrounds. That is why, not to spread the infection and keep the health of our children, we will not open the education facilities on the first stage,” Klitschko said.
As we reported, Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers intends to extend the lockdown in Ukraine until May 22. However, some easing is expected. So, that is what should be expected to start from May 11: the opening of parks, squares, recreation areas, beauty salons, summer venues of food establishments, libraries, museums.
