"I have already instructed ministries and departments to develop criteria for facilities that will be gradually opening. As we will not only have to open shops, hairdressers and cafes, we should create conditions under which people's visits there do not translate into a new outbreak of the [coronavirus] disease," he said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Cabinet of Ministers on April 29 supported the criteria enabling food markets to re-open amid the COVID-19 lockdown.
