The situation with the incidence of COVID-19 in Crimea remains extremely volatile. This was announced on Thursday, November 19, by the head of the interregional department of Rospotrebnadzor in the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol Natalya Penkovskaya.
“There is a situation in Crimea – we note some dynamics towards stabilization, but it remains extremely unstable. The incidence numbers change every day. We see this from the reports, according to the test results, “Penkovskaya said on the air of the Crimea 24 TV channel.
She noted that the situation is similar in Sevastopol. At the moment, about 13 thousand cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in the region.
According to a representative of Rospotrebnadzor, when the SARS and influenza season is added to the coronavirus, “the numbers will be much worse than now.”
The day before, New Year’s mass celebrations were banned in Crimea due to the situation with the spread of COVID-19 on the peninsula.
Last week it became known that orphanages and other similar social institutions in Crimea will remain closed for quarantine indefinitely. At the same time, the home regime for people aged 65 and over in the region will not be introduced.
