Bloomberg: Putin put an end to the virus in Russia

After six weeks, Russian President Vladimir Putin put an end to the “Russian virus” and removed the self-isolation of citizens during the COVID-19 pandemic. He called on the population to be careful when easing restrictions and blamed the authorities in the regions, despite the fact that the number of infected people is already higher than in other European countries, Bloomberg writes.

Non-working days for all of Russia and all industries economics comes to the end. But the fight against the epidemic is not over yet. The danger persists even in areas where the situation is relatively favorable.

- said the Russian leader.

Russia is struggling not only with COVID-19, but also with the consequences of the pandemic - a halt in production, a decrease in business activity and a decrease in oil demand. The crisis has hit a standard of living and is threatening a surge in unemployment; Putin's confidence rating has fallen to the lowest level since he took power more than 20 years ago.

In order to avoid new outbreaks of infection, Putin granted the regional authorities the right to take sanitary and epidemiological measures themselves. At the same time, he called on regional authorities to support business and employment.

It is dangerous to rush forward, but you can’t sit back avoiding responsibility. We have to go between Scylla and Charybdis

- Putin considers.

In addition, Putin promised to increase payments to families and support for small and medium-sized businesses and offered a number of benefits. Since there were complaints about the insufficiency of previously taken measures.

Russia has already overtaken most European countries in the number of infections detected. However, mortality rates remain low. This allows critics of the Russian government to argue that the government is hiding real numbers.

Last week, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin extended restrictive measures in the capital until May 31. He estimated that about 300 people in the capital were infected with coronavirus, which is more than three times the official figure, and warned that in the near future the city would not return to normal life.

    Putin introduced quarantine with approximately 1500 sick people per day, 10899 people officially fell ill over the last XNUMX hours. And what, Putin is going to cancel quarantine ?! Does he have something there, a heat stroke, his head in the bunker was baked, or did he decide to kill us all? More stupid and hard to imagine !!!

      No quarantine was entered. Whenever possible, try to understand the situation and terminology.

            Just like that, even acne does not jump up. And to love Moses, who has been driving the Russian Federation along the shores of the Yeltsin swamp for 20 years, fearing to even take a step away from him, appoints the fascist Chubais to leading posts and invites Judas Gorbachev to the Kremlin, the people of the Russian Federation have no reason !!! This is for you, bureaucrats and hucksters, a holiday during the plague, but not everyone like you, for whom money does not smell ...
