February 20

The situation with the COVID-19 in Moscow is getting better. Sergei Sobyanin told about this in an interview with the Russia-1 TV channel.

“We see a continuing decline in the disease cases finding, admissions to hospital, a decrease in the number of critically ill patients who are still in the hospital. One just needs to keep in mind that the pandemic has yet not ended, and one must take care to protect oneself”, says Moscow Mayor.

Those who fall in the high-risk group - elderly people and those having chronic condition - need to pay special heed to their health.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination in Moscow is underway. One can get vaccinated at one of 100 stations arranged in the city polyclinics. Those are open around the clock from 08:00 to 20:00. There is an option on administering vaccine in private health clinics. The vaccine itself is free for the residents, it is the clinic’s service for the vaccine administration that is charged.

Besides, mobile vaccination teams have been in use in the city since January 18. They provide vaccinating for the citizens in GUM, the Helikon-Opera theater, the Depo food mall, at VDNKh, in the flagship offices of My Documents in the Central Administrative District (Afimall City SEC) and South Administrative District (Columbus SEC), as well as in shopping centers Salaris, L-153, Kaleidoscope, Kaluzhsky, Shchelkovsky, Vodny, and Evropeyskiy.

The stabilization of the situation with COVID-19 has already made it possible to remove a number of restrictions in the Moscow. High school students returned to in-person learning in schools; restaurants and clubs were allowed to work at night, after 23:00. The requirement to transfer at least 30 percent of employees to remote work ceased to be an advisory one; the final decision is at discretion of the business management.

Some hospitals have returned to scheduled patients admission amid decrease in new cases of coronavirus.
