The mayor of Moscow said that the mask regime will last until mid-autumn
Sergei Sobyanin made a statement that citizens will have to wear masks up to the start of mass vaccination against coronavirus, and it should begin no earlier than mid-October.
At the same time, the mayor noted, mid-autumn is an inaccurate deadline for the end of the mask regime. It may be necessary to extend it until the beginning of next year.
- According to various estimates - from October to February next year. I want to believe that in October we will receive the first large batches of the vaccine, the mayor said in an interview with TASS.
The capital will be able to return to its former way of life no earlier than a year later, the mayor noted, adding that "a person very quickly forgets the bad." Recall that earlier Sobyanin promised that quarantine in Moscow would be long.
To the question of whether it is planned to switch to permanent remote work for officials, Sobyanin answered that part of the staff will work at regular times.
“There is only one problem: we, people, as a rule, cannot stand loneliness, live communication is important for us”, - the mayor noted.
Recall that Moscow is in first place among the Russian regions in the spread of coronavirus infection. Since the start of the pandemic, COVID-19 was detected in 187,216 Muscovites. 91 654 patients recovered and were discharged from medical facilities.
