Rospotrebnadzor recommended that people from vulnerable categories, including those with chronic diseases, wear masks again in public places. The recommendation is related to the increase in the number of cases of coronavirus in the country.

Over the past day, 5.7 thousand new cases of the disease have been detected in the country. This is almost 1.5 thousand more than the day before. The increase in cases in the country is associated with the spread of new subspecies of the Omicron strain.

“Although new variants of COVID-19 are not so difficult to tolerate, coronavirus is still a dangerous disease. We advise you not to forget the basic precautionary rules”, - Rospotrebnadzor recommended.

The department also reminded of the need to be vaccinated against this disease. You need to revaccinate every six months.

Earlier, Roszdravnadzor called for the resumption of the work of covid headquarters in the regions, to check the sufficient number of medicines for the treatment of coronavirus and stocks of protective equipment, and to intensify vaccination.
