If there is an outbreak of the coronavirus infection in Ukraine’s capital, the city will have to return to strict quarantine restrictions. This was announced by Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko during an online briefing.

"If we have a sharp spike in the Covid-19 incidence, there will be no other way out but to return to severe restrictions. We will have to do this in order to prevent the collapse of medicine and high mortality among patients. Remember this! By the way, a protective mask is not worn in the pocket, but on the face! Wear a mask in public places, in transport. Also, keep your social distance," Klitschko said.
