Non-working days, which are announced in Russia from October 30 to November 7, in order to stop the spread of coronavirus in the country, should not be called a lockdown. The head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova refused to consider them as such, reports RIA News…
“These coming nine or seven days, I’m not ready to accept that this is a lockdown. This is not a lockdown. People are forced to socialize with their families and spend more time outdoors. That, in fact, is all, ”said Popova.
She also recalled that the practice of introducing non-working days had already worked well in May this year – then this measure made it possible to stop the further increase in the incidence of COVID-19.
Earlier, Popova urged Russians to limit their contacts and not go anywhere during non-working days in the country. According to her, such a regime should be used for its intended purpose.
On October 19, Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova proposed introducing a non-working day regime in Russia. President Vladimir Putin supported this initiative and said that now it is especially important “to bring down the peak of the new wave of the epidemic.” The decree on the introduction of non-working days from October 30 to November 7, the head of state signed on October 20.
