The road to hell is paved with good intentions: the St. Petersburg businessman who rented a tent in Sennoy market and during the period of self-isolation organized free distribution of food to the needy, was detained by the police.

He is accused of the fact that his charity event led to a massive crowd of people during the coronavirus.

A guard complained about a stampede at a tent in the market. According to him, almost 200 people gathered near the grocery pavilion. The police promptly arrested the "offender", he was taken to the police, the market was closed, pavilions were sealed, "RIA Novosti" wrote. Now a fine of up to 500 thousand rubles threatens the businessman for his good deed.

Earlier in St. Petersburg, local restaurateurs organized a free distribution of hot lunches to all those in need. On the second floor of the restaurant, entrepreneurs organized a recording studio and broadcast concerts of local artists online. The money received for performances was spent on food for those in need.

The number of patients with coronavirus in St. Petersburg has already exceeded 7.7 thousand people. Over the past day, another 307 people have become infected with a new disease. Since the spread of the pandemic, 56 people have died, including three of them in the last 24 hours.
