From March 8, the mandatory self-isolation regime for people over 65 and those suffering from chronic diseases will become advisory. Social cards of such Muscovites will be unblocked, said Sergei Sobyanin in his blog.

At the same time, the Moscow Mayor appealed to citizens over 65 and those who suffer from chronic diseases, with a request to protect their lives and health.

“Your age and your health condition are at risk. As before, 700-800 people are hospitalized with severe COVID-19 every day. Therefore, please refrain from travel if possible. And if you have to go somewhere, then first of all go to the vaccination centers in order to get vaccinated and protect yourself,” said Sergei Sobyanin.

According to him, the situation with the pandemic is gradually improving, in Moscow it is already stable enough to let the authorities make such decision. “The incidence rate is decreasing every week. The number of daily detected cases of COVID has decreased by almost five times compared to the peaks at the end of last year. In terms of hospitalizations and other indicators, the spread of the coronavirus has decreased two to three times,” said Moscow Mayor.

He added that most of the restrictions had already been lifted: catering, museums, theaters and cinemas were working, passengers were increasingly using public transport.

Sergei Sobyanin wished the residents of Moscow to stay healthy and congratulated Moscow women on the upcoming International Women's Day.
