There is a steady downward trend in the incidence of coronavirus infection in the city.
In the near future, restrictions on large-scale events may be lifted in Moscow. This will happen if the negative dynamics of the incidence of coronavirus infection continues, Sergei Sobyanin said in an interview with the Russia 1 TV channel. The Moscow Mayor also noted that it is important for the city to remove all restrictions as soon as possible.
“I hope that in the next month or two, if there is such a trend, we will remove these restrictions,” said Sergei Sobyanin.
According to him, Moscow also expects to fully allow the movement of persons over 65 years old.
“People with chronic diseases, people of the older generation are just a risk group that is very difficult to tolerate this disease (many end up in hospitals in a serious condition), and, of course, our task is to protect these people from communication as best as possible during a pandemic. … But still, taking into account the decrease in the growth of morbidity in the city, I hope that these restrictions will soon be transferred from mandatory to recommendation, ”added the Mayor of Moscow.
He also expressed the hope that older people will continue to be actively vaccinated in order to protect themselves.
Now in the capital there is a steady downward trend in the incidence of coronavirus infection: the number of hospitalizations daily ranges from 500 to 600, although recently this figure was in the region of 1700. The Moscow Mayor expressed confidence that the restrictions would continue to be lifted.
The stabilization of the situation with COVID-19 has already made it possible to remove a number of restrictions. High school students returned to full-time classes in schools, restaurants and clubs were allowed to work at night, after 23:00. The requirement to transfer at least 30 percent of employees to remote work is now of a recommendatory nature – the final decision remains with the management of the companies. Some hospitals have returned to routine patient admissions amid a decrease in new cases of coronavirus infection.
The city continues vaccination against COVID-19… You can get vaccinated at one of 100 points on the basis of city polyclinics. They work daily from 08:00 to 20:00. You can also get vaccinated in private medical institutions. The vaccine itself is free for residents, only the clinic’s service for the administration of the drug is paid for.
In addition, on-site vaccination teams have been working in the city since January 18. They accept citizensin GUM, the Helikon-Opera theater, the Depo food mall, at VDNKh, in the flagship offices of My Documents of the Central Administrative District (Afimall City SEC) and South Administrative District (Columbus SEC), as well as in the Kaleidoscope shopping centers , Kaluzhsky, Shchelkovsky, Vodny, Evropeyskiy, Riviera and Gagarinsky.
