Moscow residents banned from leaving home

The mayor of the Russian capital, Sergei Sobyanin, announced the introduction of special measures that are designed to help combat the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19. A universal isolation regime is being introduced in Moscow.

Starting March 30, residents of the city will be prohibited from leaving their homes unless absolutely necessary. The reasons for going outside are: applying for emergency medical care, going to work and back home, making purchases at the nearest grocery store or pharmacy, walking your pets within a radius of 100 meters from the house, and also throwing out household garbage.

Moreover, according to the mayor, in the coming days a special regime will be introduced in the Russian capital, which will include a ban on finding a person outside the house without special permission. It will be issued by the Moscow government in the prescribed manner.

Sobyanin added that the city’s authorities intend to tighten control over citizens' compliance with the home regime.

All of the above measures are also valid for the Moscow region.

    During the war, there was an order for everyone to observe blackout (everyone was obliged to curtain the window with a thick curtain). A patrol walked through the streets and if anyone violated the blackout, they shot him at the window.

    If he had introduced this earlier, and arranged quarantine for arriving moneybags, as in the Far East, then there would have been no epidemic.

      Well, this is often in life - some are dirty, and others are punished. Maybe this is a hint to us that we are not so "individual" and how interdependent ...
      And the joint correction of other people's mistakes is an effective method, but not beneficial in the eyes of some.
      I think that after all this chaos "and what and when to whom to do" there should be a law regulating the actions of the authorities and citizens in such an emergency situation, otherwise in troubled waters there is much to be left without, and the beneficiaries will not keep themselves waiting long with the repetition of this ...

    The problem is that no quarantine has been announced, and the decree of Sobyanin introduces a regime of complete self-isolation. Self-isolation is like cotton instead of exploding. Or as a subbotnik, in which it would be possible not to participate, but they brutally punished for the pass.
