Klychko doesn't rule out that quarantine restrictions may be tightened in Kyiv

In the event of the coronavirus incidence increasing in Kyiv, quarantine restrictions may be tightened.

The mayor of Kyiv Vitalii Klychko stated this on the 1+1 TV channel, the Ukrainska Pravda reports.

"The numbers (in terms of incidence) aren't very optimistic. We hope they'll decrease next week. If not… If the numbers increase, we'll be sure that we can talk about continuing the lockdown and that we don't rule out tougher restrictions. In a week, I hope, we'll have positive dynamics in reducing the incidence," Klychko said.

When asked whether a curfew could be imposed in the capital, Klychko said it was the responsibility of the Verkhovna Rada, not the city.

As Rubryka reported, a lockdown began in Kyiv on April 5.

On the first day, because of introducing special passes, in the morning, traffic jams paralyzed traffic, and taxi prices soared several times. For example, a trip from the Pochaina metro station to Independence Square cost at least UAH 200, from Pozniaky to Kontraktova Square, more than UAH 400.

On April 7, it became known that the Antimonopoly Committee began investigating taxi prices during a lockdown in Kyiv.

At the same time, the Office of the President criticized the Kyiv authorities for improper preparation for the lockdown.
