Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said that the situation with the spread of coronavirus in the capital, judging by the dynamics of the disease and hospitalizations, “more or less” stabilized. He stated this on the air of the TV channel “Russia 1”, reports RIA News…
According to him, today the detection rate of COVID-19 cases in Moscow fluctuates around 6 thousand daily, and earlier it reached 8 thousand. The head of the city also noted that over the past week, the number of hospitalizations among those infected with coronavirus has decreased.
At the same time, Sobyanin stressed that last week this figure was 1.6 – 1.7 thousand.
The head of the city, discussing the effectiveness of non-working days and their impact on the situation with the coronavirus in the capital, noted that it would be possible to evaluate the results of the current measures very soon. “We will understand the full effect of non-working days at the end of next week. We hope that the situation with the coronavirus will improve, ”he said.
On November 3, Sobyanin said that Moscow did not plan to extend the non-working days introduced in the city from October 28 to November 7. Then the mayor stressed that the situation with COVID-19 in Moscow has stabilized and the number of hospitalizations for patients with severe disease has decreased. “We are starting to work as usual,” the mayor said.
At the same time, it is important to comply with all measures against the spread of coronavirus, the mayor added. There is also a requirement to transfer 30 percent of employees to a remote work mode and to observe the home mode for elderly Muscovites.
On October 21, the mayor of the capital announced the introduction of a non-working day regime in Moscow from October 28 to November 7. During this period, the work of organizations in the sphere of trade and services, as well as catering establishments, was suspended. On non-working days, using QR codes, you can get to theaters and museums, without an electronic document, access is allowed only to shops with groceries and essential goods.
Sobyanin also named the number of citizens in the city who were fully vaccinated against coronavirus.
Muscovites were vaccinated with two components of the vaccine against COVID-19
The head of the city noted that this figure is approximate, since some Muscovites are vaccinated in other regions, for example, in the Moscow region. “The dynamics are not bad, it would be nice if they were preserved further,” the mayor added.
The increase in bonuses for plasma donors with antibodies to COVID-19, announced by Sobyanin on Thursday, November 4, should also contribute to the fight against the spread of the virus. From November 1, those who have recovered from the coronavirus or who have been vaccinated will be paid compensation in the amount of 10 thousand rubles.
“We made a decision from November 1, already retroactively, we will recalculate and will pay 10 thousand rubles for one donation. I think that this will also be an additional material incentive for such a great noble work that our donors are doing, ”said the mayor during his visit to the antibodies plasma procurement center, which is located in the building of the Pirogov City Clinical Hospital No. 1 branch.
Sobyanin emphasized that in 2020 Moscow became the first region of the country in which they began to use plasma with antibodies in the treatment of severe forms of coronavirus infection. He noticed that this method of treatment has demonstrated its effectiveness, and in a year and a half, 20 thousand compatriots have undergone such treatment.
