- Over the past months, we have learned a lot about the new virus ... Nevertheless, according to doctors, the superposition of two diseases: the common cold and the coronavirus, is very dangerous and can have serious consequences. This is especially true for elderly Muscovites and citizens suffering from chronic diseases, the mayor of the Russian capital pointed out in his blog.
According to Sobyanin's order, from Monday, September 28, citizens over 65 and citizens who suffer from chronic diseases should not leave their homes unnecessarily. Also, working pensioners over 65 and people with chronic diseases are strongly advised to switch to telecommuting or take a vacation. Heads of enterprises were again recommended to transfer as many of their employees as possible to the “remote” format.
Earlier, at a meeting with the governors, Russian President Vladimir Putin also drew attention to the need to take measures to protect the health of primarily people of the older generation, "who are at risk of chronic diseases." But he urged to do everything "carefully, proceeding from the real situation in a particular territory," without taking the problem "into the background.
At the same time, Russian experts insist that there is no second wave of coronavirus in the country. Some believe that the increase in the number of detected cases before the second wave "does not reach", and some believe that the first wave is still continuing.
