The head of the State Service on Food Safety and Consumer Protection in Kyiv Oleh Ruban denies information about the preparation for a lockdown on September 15, noting that the increase of quarantine measures is possible only if Kyiv enters the yellow or red quarantine zone. This was reported by Segodnya.
“This is unreliable information. Such a decision can be made only by the Scientific Council or the Ministry of Healthcare. Also, restrictions do not yet affect transport. They are possible only if the city gets into the red zone, but so far Kiev has no such prospects,” Ruban states.
According to him, if Kyiv enters the yellow zone, then the increase of quarantine measures is possible as well as the introduction of all anti-epidemiological measures.
“Currently, all city services are preparing for different scenarios. But right now Kyiv is in the green zone and the incidence in the city is fully controlled. Although we see a gradual increase in morbidity in all groups,” he said.
According to the head of the State Service on Food Safety and Consumer Protection of Kyiv, 10 groups for control of the anti-epidemiological regime will work in Kyiv from Monday.
Earlier media reported that Kyiv was preparing to introduce a lockdown on September 15. It was reported that the restrictive measures would apply to the work of the private sector: cafes, restaurants, beauty salons and other institutions, as well as the public transport system, including the subway.
