The Governor of the Moscow Region Andrei Vorobyov urged local residents to stop traveling by public transport. The official said this on his Instagram page on Wednesday, October 7.
“We need to severely limit ourselves, especially the risk group, that is, those over 65, and refuse to travel by public transport. Only in case of emergency – either you are going for treatment, or you have a truly critical situation, “Gazeta.ru quotes Vorobiev.
Vorobiev noted that the main task for the authorities is to curb the spread of coronavirus infection, therefore, the townspeople themselves must be responsible and disciplined in order to avoid a spring lockdown.
“It takes discipline and responsibility to avoid quarantines and tough restrictions, as they were in the spring. And in front of yourself and in front of loved ones. Then we will not need to close the economy, and most importantly, we will save lives, ”the 360 TV channel quotes the official.
The governor also pointed out three main things that need to be observed to avoid the imposition of severe restrictions: refusal to travel by public transport, do not self-medicate and wear protective medical masks.
“Maybe they already irritate us, but what they are saving is already a fact,” Vorobyov emphasized.
At the first symptoms of the disease, the official urged to seek medical help, writes REGNUM. Andrei Vorobyov noted that in this way the Ministry of Health of the region “calls fire on itself”: the number of calls to an ambulance near Moscow per day is already 10 thousand calls instead of the usual six thousand. The Governor stressed that “timely treatment is key” in the current situation.
In the Moscow region, the coronavirus was detected in 74,076 patients, 56,610 recovered, and 1,351 people died. The total number of cases in the Russian Federation is 1.1 million people.
On October 3, it was reported that the Russians were reminded of the rules for wearing a medical mask. It is noted that the mask must be constantly changed and discarded after use.
