“In order to stop the situation, we all need to follow the rules. And there will be no need to introduce a lockdown if the measures that have already been introduced in the constituent entities are impeccably implemented and will be unconditional for everyone”, - Popova said on the air of the Russia 1 channel.
At the same time, the chief sanitary doctor noted that, first of all, you need to wear masks, wash your hands and maintain social distance.
She pointed out that going out to public places today is not necessary without "absolutely incredible necessity". Popova also urged not to wait for the virus to leave itself when the cold weather sets in.
"Viruses are generally very cold-loving, they live at temperatures of minus 70, minus 20, and some of the vaccines that are created are stored at this temperature. Therefore, there is no reason to expect that everything will go away by itself with the onset of winter", - she clarified.
