At the meeting on combating coronavirus infection, which President Vladimir Putin announced this decision for the country as a whole, the mayor said: “I Think that in Moscow and in the Moscow region it is necessary to continue a regime of self-isolation as strictly as before, proceeding from the difficult situation”.

In his blog, published a little later, he reiterated: “This decision was expected. In the present circumstances it is absolutely necessary.” And then explained why. Despite a slight decrease in dynamics of growth of diseases Covid-19 patients per week in the city was 70% more. The increase – from 26 to 45 thousand, and it is only diagnoses, laboratory-confirmed at reference centres. “We understand that the actual number of cases even more. Many carry the disease without symptoms, someone in its beginning stages. And someone she’s not yet been laboratory confirmed, but has all clinical signs of infection. And they really are being treated as outpatients or even hospitalized.”

Led the mayor and the following figures. The number of Muscovites who are in the hospitals with a diagnosis of coronavirus has increased to 17 thousand people. Hundreds are in intensive care and on a ventilator. Die every day about 30-40 people. Referring also to the Muscovites, he writes: “every day I read appeals and requests to weaken the regime of restrictive measures. Believe me, I did as much as you want to do. But in the current situation it would just be irresponsible and populist solution which in the future will inevitably lead to even greater number of cases and deaths”. And asked again: “On may day, please stay home.” Pleased students: . “During the holidays from 1 to 11 may online lessons will not.”

Adopted by the mayor and a number of concrete solutions in connection with the extension of the regime of self-isolation. In particular, for carrying out noisy works during repairs in the apartment houses on weekdays are not left for more than four hours in contrast to the usual eight hours. All the rest should remain silent. Moreover, this requirement also applies to the recently introduced house buildings, where the problem of preservation of peace is particularly acute. This measure, stressed the mayor, adopted by numerous requests of Muscovites. Moreover, the restrictions on noisy works take effect immediately.

a decision in the coming days, Moscow will start the payment of the “children’s” additional payments to unemployed citizens in the amount of 3000 rubles per month. The money will be paid in addition to the Federal and regional unemployment. Thus, the maximum size of payments to the unemployed will be 19 500 rubles, 3000 rubles per minor child per month.

And that’s about children’s activities, regretted to��Yu, said Sobyanin, nothing comforting he is to tell the parents can not.

In the government of Moscow has already received on this account letters from Muscovites, but it is obvious that in the coming months, most regions of the country are unlikely to take people from Moscow. The city shifts in schools also carries the risk of disease outbreak.

Therefore, the organization of children’s rest stopped in the city until July 31, 2020.

– On the third shift in August will make a decision later, Sobyanin promised.
