The quarantine restrictions on transportation in Ukraine will be phased out, starting with commuter trains.
This was announced by Minister of Infrastructure Vladislav Krikliy in an interview with BBC News Ukraine.
“We are going to start with suburban transport, which takes people to cities, to industrial facilities. We discuss the restrictions that will apply to this transport: it is a mask mode and less passengers in a car. It’s clear that when 60 passengers crowd a car in the morning, it’s no longer a question of social distance, “said Crickley.
The Minister also suggests that it will be necessary to speak with employers so that people go to work at different times and come back in different ways.
As reported, since March 12, the government has introduced quarantine in Ukraine to combat the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus infection. In particular, commercial establishments were closed, with the exception of grocery stores, pharmacies, petrol stations and banks. Work on the metros in Kiev, Kharkov and Dnipro, the circulation of land transport in cities, interurban and interregional road, rail and air services have also been suspended.
