Deputy Chairman of Kyiv City State Administration Valentyn Mondryivskyy says a new lockdown, which is to be introduced in the capital city April 5 through April 16, may continue after April 16.

"The lockdown may be extended after April 16 since we cannot predict the situation with the case rate. But we hope these three weeks of the [new] quarantine until April 16 will give results and we will have positive dynamics in mid-April, will flatten the curve, and will be able to consider the easing of restrictions," he told Hromadske Radio.
