The decision to extend the weekend to be adopted at the end of next week

Deputy mayor of Moscow on issues of social development Anastasia Rakova gave an interview in the program “Evening with Vladimir Solovyov” on TV channel “Russia 1”. She recalled that the next week will be broken.

This is done to ensure that people have the opportunity to stay at home, reduce social contact and to reduce the risk of the spread of coronavirus COVID-19.

Many people would prefer to spend those days off as vacation to go with friends to a restaurant to take the kids to the Park or to do shopping. To eliminate this temptation, the mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin took the decision to close thousands of institutions, organizations and public places, except for grocery stores and pharmacies so people could stay at home or go to the country to spend time with his family, as well as to minimize social contacts.

unfortunately, people do not see and do not understand the situation with coronavirus. Now there is a battle for the health and lives of people. The measures taken are not very pleasant, but necessary. Therefore, while it is impossible to say with certainty that in a week everything will return to normal life.

“To date, all decisions are made, based on how the situation will develop. While the decision on the non-working week taken only for one week. At the end of next week will be taken measures adequate to the situation which will at that time”, — said the Deputy mayor of Moscow on issues of social development Anastasia Rakova.
