As of today, 50% of Covid beds in Lviv are full, mayor Andriy Sadovy declared on the air of the Ukraine 24 TV channel.
"Today the situation in Lviv is under control. We have 50% occupancy of beds. As of today, 780 people are hospitalized in general, these are people who are now in our public hospitals. 71 people were hospitalized during the last day," Sadovy said.
In his opinion, Lviv, like other cities in Ukraine, will gradually enter the red zone.
Now in Lviv all schoolchildren have gone on vacation, only kindergartens still work. Starting on November 1, it will be necessary to have a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test for visitors of catering establishments.
"We are starting tighter control over catering establishments, and here the owners are responsible, but I would very much like to have a general policy on the state, because, you know Covid-19 - it does not appear in one city without appearing in the other. This is a wave that covers everyone," Sadovyi added.
As it was reported earlier, Lviv has tightened quarantine restrictions on October 18 in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Food establishments can work only under the condition of 100% vaccination or PCR tests for workers. It is also necessary to adhere to the mask regime in public transport and in public places.
In addition, a record number of deaths from coronavirus were recorded in the Lviv region on October 18.
