"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.
