“The epidemic situation in the capital remains tense. Several thousand coronavirus cases are detected every day in Moscow.

We made a decision from tomorrow to increase the number of slots for recording for free PCR testing by more than one thousand “, – said
Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development.
She added that this will be possible due to the fact that the working hours of treatment rooms will increase. From November 13, 4860 places will be available daily for adults, 1170 for children. Thus, more than six thousand PCR tests will be performed per day.
