"The issue will be discussed at the Cabinet meeting (on Wednesday). There is a proposal to extend it until May 11," Skvernelis told reporters.

"At the same meeting, decisions will be made on reopening other business activities (...), such as outdoor cafes and certain beauty services," he added.

The government will also consider allowing resuming non-urgent health services and certain outdoor sports activities, and make decisions on museums and libraries, according to the prime minister.
