Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko expects that the capital’s authorities will not be forced to stop the work of public transport, including the subway; however, it is possible, if the hospitals lack beds for Covid-19 patients, Ukrinform news agency reports.
“It can take place only in the case of the so-called infectious explosion. That happened in Italy, Spain, and New York in due time. We do everything to prevent this situation. It can take place when the number of patients will far exceed the number of beds at the hospitals and doctors who may provide treatment,” Klitschko said.
He expressed hope that according to all rates in Kyiv, such a critical situation should not occur.
On August 31, Kyiv became the leader in the number of people infected with Covid-19 in 24 hours. 277 new cases were registered.
Over the past 24 hours, 2,088 new cases of coronavirus infection have been observed in Ukraine. Since the beginning of the pandemic, 123,303 patients have been diagnosed with the disease: 2,605 have died (+48 per day) and 57,802 (+688 per day) have recovered.
