"Pandemic liquidators" may become a new preferential category

First Deputy Head of the Public Chamber of the Leningrad Region Vladimir Petrov put forward a proposal to create another preferential category in the country - "liquidators of the coronavirus pandemic."

According to RIA Novosti , the idea is set out in a letter to Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin. It is proposed to include in the new category those professionals who took an active part in the fight against the pandemic. In particular, this refers to doctors, scientists, volunteers, and employees of special services.

Petrov believes that those who enter this category should be given the right to additional days of paid leave, sanatorium treatment and other additional social guarantees, as was done for the liquidators of the Chernobyl accident.

The head of the OP of the region believes that specialists should be awarded with distinctive signs.

It's worth reminding that doctors who work with patients with coronavirus will be able to count on early retirement in 2021.
