Kyiv extends strict quarantine restrictions until April 30.

The Kyiv commission on emergency situations has extended strict quarantine restrictions in the capital for two more weeks, until April 30, according to Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko.

“As the epidemiological situation in the capital is not improving significantly, this morning the city's commission on emergency situations has decided to extend strict restrictive measures in our city for two more weeks, until April 30. We have no other choice, otherwise the healthcare system will not cope with such number of patients, otherwise there will be even more deaths,” he said at a briefing on April 14, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

As reported by Ukrinform, Kyiv introduced strict quarantine restrictions on March 20 for three weeks. During this period, it is prohibited to hold mass events in the city (entertainment, sports, cultural, advertising and others). Grocery stores, pharmacies, pet shops, shops selling hygiene products and household goods remain open.

On April 5, the capital closed down all schools and kindergartens. Public transport - both ground transport and the subway - operate on special passenger passes, i.e. only for the transportation of employees of enterprises of critical infrastructure.
