According to Denis Shmygal, according to the plan drawn up by the government, the metro cannot be opened until at least May 22:
“The rapid launch of public transport can lead to the spread of the epidemic. And we, unfortunately, the situation with the spread of the disease has not yet stabilized. “
In response to this, the President of Ukraine said that the Cabinet strategy was correct and that the quarantine could not be abruptly withdrawn:
“You cannot take the epidemic lightly. Today alone, more than 500 infected people have been identified. And free access to public transport will only contribute to the spread of COVID-19.”
