Volodymyr Buryak, the mayor of Zaporizhya city declared the state of emergency in this city. He himself posted that on Facebook.
Buryak reported that four citizens of Zaporizhya suffered from the Chinese coronavirus, as they returned from abroad. The patients previously traveled in Egypt and France. Their age made from 41 to 55 years old.
"Coronavirus is already in Zaporizhya, so today we impose the state of emergency in the city since 14.00. But I'm asking everyone not to show any panic, and I once again insist that you need to stay home and only walk outside if there's an urgent need to do so", the official said.
Earlier, Dnipro city committee for emergencies ruled to suspend the movement of passenger traffic and set the special working mode for the municipal transport since March 26. Borys Filatov, the mayor reported that on his Facebook page.
According to him, it's a painful but forced measure. "Many cities of Ukraine did that already. Know this: I'd rather take curses from people than bury hundreds of them later", he said.
