In Kyiv, the number of means of public transport is gradually being increased so that everything will work in normal mode starting from May 22. This was announced by the city’s mayor Vitaliy Klitschko during a briefing that was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"I want to emphasize that no one has canceled the observance of safety rules, because, according to doctors, more than 30% of infections occur in public transport when people do not keep their distance, do not wear masks and gloves," he said.
Klitschko noted that Kyivpastrans (Ukraine's biggest municipal transport company - 112 International) continues disinfecting vehicles three times a day.
As we reported earlier, according to Ukraine’s Infrastructure Minister Vladyslav Krykliy, there is no need to open the metro in Kyiv right now.
“A few days ago, the HQ gathered. When we considered the issue of the renewal of the metro’s work, we concurred that it will be very difficult to open it with the restrictions. If the underground opens, it should function fully. Of course, it is possible to hold disinfection, impose mask regime, and hold temperature screening. But it is quite difficult to restrict people at the platform and in the wagons. That is why I would not hurry with such a decision,” the minister said.
