Muscovites have to get used to a new social culture – without the hugs and handshakes – a vaccine for coronavirus or effective drugs against him, said Deputy mayor Anastasia Rakova.

"I think that as long as no vaccine or effective drugs, of course, have to follow a different social culture. You can also warm, sincere to each other to be without the hugging and more to communicate in an interactive format," she said Monday in an interview with the "Docking current" on the First channel.

"of Course I wish it [hugs and handshakes at the meeting] was possible as early as possible, but the virus is not gone, it becomes our reality," she added.
