More than two thousand new cases of COVID-19 infection are detected every day in the capital, so it is necessary to reduce the number of movements of citizens.

The number of cases of COVID-19 continues to increase. More than two thousand cases are detected daily. This was announced by Sergei Sobyanin in my blog.

“A few days ago, we asked employers to transfer to remote work all employees whose presence in the workplace is not absolutely necessary. It was hoped that this would significantly reduce the intensity of travel by metro and ground transport. A number of businesses have indeed followed our call. Unfortunately, the number of trips on public transport has not decreased enough. The incidence of coronavirus continues to grow – more than two thousand people daily. It is very dangerous, ”the Moscow Mayor wrote.

The number of those suffering from severe coronavirus is also increasing. The proportion of people over 65 years of age is growing among the cases. If in the summer they were less than 15 percent of the total number of people infected with coronavirus, then in September it was already 20-25 percent.

“The proportion of children among the sick for the first time exceeded 19 percent. Yes, they get sick easily or without symptoms at all, but at the same time they can infect older family members who carry the coronavirus much harder, ”Sergei Sobyanin said.

Given the current situation, the following decision was made… From October 5, employers in the capital are required to transfer at least 30 percent of employees to remote work, as well as all employees over 65 and people with chronic diseases.

The rule does not apply to employees whose presence in the workplace is critical to the functioning of the organization. In addition, the requirement does not apply to medical organizations, Rosatom, Roskosmos, enterprises of the defense complex and some other strategic industries.

From September 28, people over 65 years old and those with chronic diseases must follow a home regimen. For the townspeople launched again social service system, You can ask for help by calling the hotline: +7 (495) 870-45-09.

All citizens must use masks and gloves and maintain social distance in public places.
