There are currently no medical masks in Ukraine; the local entrepreneurships are changing the setting in order to produce these masks. Mykola Povoroznyk, Deputy Head of Kyiv city state administration said so on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"There are no masks - nowhere. And there are none in Germany, in Austria, and there were none in China at some moment. One has to find a solution. The first and the best piece of advice is to stay home. Stay indoors over two weeks, against all odds, so as to stay away from danger and not to become a carrier of the disease", he said.
According to the official, it especially concerns young people who are not considered vulnerable to the Chinese coronavirus but still could carry the illness.
"Visiting their parents or other relatives, they could provoke a disease - which unfortunately, cannot be treated now in some cases", Povoroznyk said.
He earlier said that starting from March 18, 2020, the passengers will be able to use public transport only wearing the facial masks.
