"As long as the temperature is kept low, the epidemiological risks of infectious diseases in the city are low. However, when the temperature is higher than 8 Celsius, the risk of infectious diseases will increase. There is a risk of increasing the number of rodents", Zub said.

As earlier reported, the mayor of Lviv Andriy Sadovy criticized the Cabinet and regional authorities, because they cannot convene a committee for emergency situations, which should discuss the situation with the garbage disposal in the city. He said that 35% of urban container yards are overfilled.
