“If the physical distancing is not observed and coronavirus cases start to rise, there’s just no other way,” Dr. Vujnovic said, answering the question of whether there is a risk of re-imposition of some bans in Russia as it happened in a number of countries.
According to her, the probability of re-imposition of banks will remain until a coronavirus vaccine is developed.
Recall, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin announced that wearing masks will no longer be required outdoors from July 13 as the number of new coronavirus cases has dwindled in the Russian capital in recent weeks.
Meanwhile, Russia confirmed 6,635 new coronavirus infections Friday (July 10), bringing the country’s official number of cases to 713,936, of which 489,068 people recovered and 11,017 died.
Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsia, has extended Russia’s ban on international flights until August1 due to the coronavirus crisis.
Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko noted on July 9 that Russians shouldn’t expect a return to their normal pre-coronavirus lives before February 2021.
