Kyiv to halt public transportation from March 23

Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko has said all public transportation will be halted in the capital city of Kyiv from Monday, March 23, due to tightening of restrictive measures to address the outbreak of the novel COVID-19 coronavirus in Ukraine.

Only people working for pharmacies, hospitals, groceries, the State Emergency Service, law enforcement agencies and strategic enterprises, who hold special passes, will be able to use public transport, Klitschko said in a video address posted on Facebook on March 21.

The restrictions are not applicable to private vehicles.

Klitschko also called on the police to switch to an enhanced mode of security. He also urged Kyiv residents to stay at home and not walk in parks.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Cabinet of Ministers on March 11 decided to introduce quarantine across Ukraine from March 12 to April 3.
