Muscovites who have passed PCR tests in city polyclinics will receive the results in SMS messages. This is stated on November 21 in a message on the website of the mayor of the capital.
“This applies to tests performed by city medical institutions. The innovation was introduced to ensure that the residents of the capital receive the result as quickly as possible and observe precautions, ”explained the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Affairs Anastasia Rakova. The new service does not apply to tests passed in private laboratories.
If the passed test does not make it possible to determine whether a person is sick with coronavirus, he will receive a message asking him to retake the analysis.
If the diagnosis is confirmed, the Muscovite will be asked to stay at home in the message. Doctors will contact him and tell about further actions.
“If the test result turns out to be negative, then the resident will be advised to continue to follow safety rules – to wear a mask and gloves, to maintain social distance,” the message says.
As of November 21, 400,332 people have been cured of the coronavirus in Moscow. Despite the spread of the infection, the restrictions adopted by the capital’s authorities are yielding results, said the mayor of the metropolis Sergei Sobyanin the day before, writes Gazeta.ru. As a result of the transfer of high school students to distance learning, there has been a decrease in COVID-19 infections by almost half, he said.
