Russian citizens again began to be exported from abroad
Last week, the government decided to completely stop air traffic with other countries, including the export of thousands of Russians still remaining abroad. This decision was criticized, including by the Foreign Ministry, where they did a great job of compiling their lists, and decided to resume flights.
In particular, as the government’s coordinating Council for the fight against coronavirus reported, the first two flights are scheduled for today - Bishkek - Yekaterinburg (from Kyrgyzstan) and Dhaka - Nizhny Novgorod (from Bangladesh), RIA Novosti reports . Information on subsequent flights, as the council says, will be posted on the Stopkoronavirus.ru and portals gosuslugi.ru portals.
In any case, those who return to Russia will have to undergo a two-week regime of self-isolation. But today it became known that in some regions of the country even passengers of domestic flights are sent to compulsory quarantine . For example, according to one of the passengers, all passengers of the flight S7-6221 Vladivostok - Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk were taken from the airport to the sanatorium and locked in their rooms. There they were given a toothbrush, paste, shampoo, soap and dishwashing gel, they were fed, they took tests for coronavirus from everyone. Those with negative results were promised to be released.
In the Irkutsk region, compulsory quarantine has been introduced for all arriving from Moscow - residents of the region can self-insulate at home for two weeks, visitors will have to do this at their place of residence or in observatories. Similar measures were also taken in the Krasnoyarsk Territory and the Tomsk Region, and they are being considered in the Chelyabinsk Region.
In Russia, the number of detected cases of infection is still small - 6343 people, but this number continues to grow, the capital, connected with all regions, has become the main center of infection - there are 4484 cases of infection. Over the past day, 954 new cases were added, 47 people died from coronavirus in Russia, while only 407 patients have recovered. In order to curb the pandemic in Russia until April 30, by presidential decree non-working days are announced, which should minimize contact between people and the likelihood of new infections.
