The second priority level is assigned to employees of transport and energy organizations, law enforcement officers, border guards, volunteers and volunteers, the military, service workers, as well as to citizens working on a rotational basis.

The priority of the third level includes civil servants, university students and conscripts.

It's worth reminding that at the beginning of the month, the Ministry of Health changed the list of drugs used in the treatment of coronavirus infection. It includes five drugs: "Favipiravir", "Remdesivir", "Hydroxychloroquine", recombinant "IFN α", "Umifenovir".
