Restrictions may be reintroduced if coronavirus situation gets worse in Russia - Rospotrebnadzor
MOSCOW. July 28 (Interfax) - Coronavirus restrictions may be reintroduced if the coronavirus situation gets worse, Russia's consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor said.
"Generally, there is a tendency towards an increase in the coronavirus sickness rate in Russia. Restrictions may be reintroduced if the coronavirus situation gets worse," Rospotrebnadzor said, according to a comment it published on the Telegram of the portal stopcoronavirus.rf.
According to the report, a possible reason for the reintroduction of restrictions is the increase in the coronavirus sickness rate, which is being observed in the regions.
Earlier, Natalia Pshenichnaya, Deputy Director for Clinical Analysis at Rospotrebnadzor's Central Research Institute of Epidemiology, said that there is no need to reinstate coronavirus-related restrictions at the federal level in Russia because of the rise in Covid morbidity and the spread of more contagious sub-lineages of the Omicron strain. She said that the increase in the coronavirus sickness rate in Russia is linked to the spread of more contagious sub-variants of the Omicron strain of coronavirus, but there is no dramatic increase in the sickness rate like there was in January.
