    Vladimir Putin announces new measures to counter COVID-19

    laughing I have no quarantine. I PLANNED work to go do. Spit on the mayor-student on Putin's decrees crying There are no remedies. Do not give out the required workwear. Tomorrow is Tuesday. Where is the quarantine? There are infected people in the city. The mayor is a young fool. The bureaucrat appointed by the center. Not capable of anything. We are on the verge of disaster. This is not a joke. All responsibility for the disaster will be on his appointees. And him personally.

      And where do they give out something that is not supposed to?

    Something he gave so many instructions that everyone was confused for a long time.
    Here are the instructions.
    On the Star - there are already other instructions, earlier.
    And in the earlier news - more errands, errands, errands ....

    And as for the results, it’s somehow not enough. Occasionally, a minister or official will report (successfully or unsuccessfully), generating already new wishes and instructions, instructions ...

    The good news is that all orders and toughening concern only the executive branch. But it will be bad when they begin to tighten observational measures for people.
    It would be nice if one of the statisticians brought data on the year before last !!! And monthly! We will see how much sick in the cities, the dynamics of morbidity, mortality.

    And I don’t think that the numbers will vary greatly ... And it is possible that the year before last was much worse !!! All this hype around the epidemic begins to annoy me. Less than 3 patients, 000 dozens dead. I can understand all these measures only as command post exercises before the bacteriological war. And the reaction of the authorities more and more resembles paranoia. If this is so dangerous, then where is the ARMY !? Where are the smoke-screening machines, where in the shops are people in overalls who work on the floor, guests' shoes?
    If all this is not there, then the actions are exactly reminiscent of the KShU - command and staff exercises - the protective measures are simply outlined, but there are no shots or injured!

    The hysteria continues ...
    I tried to write my note and assess the situation, but the trouble is that Putin had previously held Zurabov, the Minister of Health, and now he is listening to Golikova, who have nothing to do with medicine! But they can successfully cut finances ...
    But, unfortunately, the local editors are not smarter than Putin's advisers, because the note remained in the basket.
    Everyone considers himself an expert in medicine and parenting, and therefore the results are ...
