Quarantine measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 in Kyiv may become even tougher, a source in the Ministry of Internal Affairs has told a Ukrainian newspaper.

The Verkhovna Rada on April 6 may consider the issue of introducing a curfew in the capital, banning residents from the streets after 22:00, Segodnya reported.

The source says the move is highly likely to pass Parliament given the latest "critical" coronavirus stats.
