Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko predicts that tougher lockdown rules may be introduced if the number of confirmed COVID-19 coronavirus cases grows.
"One may not take the danger seriously and may call it a myth... But the situation is quite serious. Especially when the lifting of some curbs is pending," the mayor said on Telegram.
"And, if the dynamics of the disease grow at such a pace, any easing will be irrational and could trigger an outbreak of the infection. And then we'll have to introduce tougher quarantine-related measures," he said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, 66 new COVID-19 cases were confirmed in the capital city on May 10. In total, there were 1,871 confirmed cases, including 37 deaths, as of May 11.
