Over the past 24 hours, 48 cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed in Kyiv. This was stated by Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko during an online press conference. The broadcast was provided by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“48 people have been laboratory diagnosed with COVID-19 over the past 24 hours. There are two doctors among them. One case, unfortunately, is fatal. Today, there are 1,583 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Kyiv, 28 of them are fatal," Klitschko said.
He also noted that 91 Kyivites had been cured of coronavirus.
As we reported earlier, Kyiv city hall plans to gradually wrap up the lockdown, given the current and further possible development of the epidemiological situation in the city.
"Everyone is sick and tired of the quarantine, and everyone wants freedom. But one should not be careless about safety and one's health. Besides, in the situation when the world expects a second wave of the virus in autumn. Believe me, every day, I'm waking up worried whether the city can take this challenge? Will our hospitals take it? Will there be enough doctors in case of emergency? Will the capital's economy last? How many of those objects that we planned to close books on we will be able to finish this year? How will Kyivites live, and how will the city evolve? Because I understand my responsibility for what's going on in the capital. And I do everything not to allow a spell of the disease. And I'm sure that by joint efforts and conscious perception of the situation, we will prevail," Kyiv mayor insisted.
