The restoration of the Kyiv metro operation is planned no earlier than at the third stage of Ukraine’s exit from lockdown, and this can happen only 30 days after the end of quarantine. This was reported by the press service of the metro.
It is noted that if everything goes according to plan, then the launch phase will fall on May 31.
"The underground will not be able to transport all the citizens at once," said Prime Minister Denys Schmygal.
First, only those citizens who have a special pass will be able to ride the underground. And only at the next, fourth, stage it will be opened for all passengers. So far, authorities suggest that this will happen around June 10th.
The underground in Kyiv temporarily suspended work on March 17.
The Cabinet of Ministers decided to extend the quarantine until May 11. If the situation in Ukraine improves with respect to the coronavirus, on May 11, the government will be able to decide on the opening of parks, squares and institutions for the sale of non-food goods.
Meanwhile, yhe chief epidemiologist of Sweden, the author of the Swedish strategy for combating coronavirus Anders Tegnell believes that the closure of borders and lockdown in Europe could not stop the spread of coronavirus, Berlingske reports.
"In all countries, they are aware that it is possible to stop the virus only with the presence of mass immunity or with the help of an effective vaccine. None of these exist yet. All other measures that are being taken in the world today are temporary solutions," he said.
The Swedish strategy is slightly different from the European one - schools and kindergartens are not closed there, institutions are open.
"We in Sweden proceeded from our traditions and common sense, so we did slightly different things. We did not close the society. In other countries, politicians are not fully aware of what it means to try to keep people isolated for many months. Pandemic will not end quickly, and we can stick to our soft strategy for a very long time," he said.
There are few restrictions, but they exist: mass events of more than 50 people are prohibited, only open verandas and platforms work in restaurants, older people are advised to avoid social contacts, company leaders were asked to transfer employees to a remote work.
A depressing picture in the Turkish, Syrian and Somali communities in Sweden testifies in favor of the version about the role of civic consciousness in the phenomenon of the Swedish “miracle” - morbidity and mortality in groups that did not absorb Swedish culture and self-discipline are significantly higher than in the whole country.
