Kyiv’s Mayor Vitaly Klitschko does not rule out the possibility of imposing restrictions on unvaccinated residents of the capital. Klitschko stated this in the “Details of the Week” on the Inter TV channel on Sunday evening.
“We are studying the experience of other countries, the so-called “hybrid measures” that may be related to this. We do not rule out that only people who have a vaccination passport will be able to visit crowded places,” said the mayor.
At the same time, he is confident that a new lockdown in Kyiv will be avoided. However, everything will depend on the course of vaccination, as well as compliance with anti-epidemiological rules.
As it was reported earlier, Klitschko assured that Kyiv was ready to introduce a lockdown. The capital's hospitals are fully equipped to receive the infected.
The media reported that Kyiv was preparing to introduce a lockdown on September 15. It was reported that the restrictive measures will apply to the work of the private sector providing services - cafes, restaurants, beauty salons and other institutions, as well as the public transport system, including the subway.
However, this information was later refuted by the State Food and Consumer Service of the capital. The head of the department Oleh Ruban stated that the quarantine will be strengthened only if Kyiv enters the yellow or red quarantine zone.
