For the first time in four months, the daily number of newly registered coronavirus cases in Russia has risen to more than 14,000 again. For this reason, restrictions that had been lifted in Moscow from Sunday were reinstated.
“The work doubled in a week,” says Nikolai Pavlonov, a physician at a first-aid post. “It is important to take preventive measures against disease.”
On Sunday, most of the new cases, more than 7,700, were detected in Moscow. Not many people have been diagnosed in the Russian capital since December 24.
“A lot of young people and old people come here,” says Andrei Skoda, chief medical officer at City Clinic. “The reason for this is that young people often do not go to the doctor in time. That is why the course of the disease will be much stronger.”
In Moscow, orders were issued to stop work until June 20, with the exception of military and strategic enterprises and companies.
From Sunday, restaurants and entertainment venues will be closed from 11am to 6pm. Restrictions have not been tightened on theatres, cinemas and museums. The hall capacity is still only half used, and wearing a mask is mandatory.
