Many have been in Courchevel, brought back a suitcase just a virus”, – commented Sergei Sobyanin.

Now many cases of infection inside Moscow, when people get sick without going anywhere. However, the situation is fundamentally different than in many European countries and the United States. From the virus died in Moscow at the time of signing the numbers 11 people, almost everyone was suffering from severe chronic diseases. On Monday evening, for example, became aware of the deaths of four patients – they were from 76 to 86 years.

Serial and the remaining steps of the city authorities.

All of these people, and there are about 1.9 million people, the authorities have appointed a one-time financial assistance in the amount of 4000 rubles. Half transferred immediately, and the second promised to transfer after the end of the quarantine, subject to his compliance.
