Mass vaccination in December-January to put a stop to the coronavirus pandemic: Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin

MOSCOW, Sep 8, 2020, Pan Pacific Agency. Restrictions on the business activities and movements around the city during the ‘second wave’ of the coronavirus spread should be minimal, “even with an increase in the incidence, with the complication of the situation, which is quite possible in autumn and winter”, Sergei Sobyanin, the mayor of the Russian capital, said during a strategic session at the Moscow Financial Forum.

Meanwhile, everyone must comply with the current requirements of the health authorities, he stressed: “If wearing masks and gloves is mandatory in the shops, all must comply. If you need to use protective equipment in transport, it should be so.” The technology for treating and preventing coronavirus infection, which wasn’t clear at the outbreak beginning, has been worked out, he said. In December-January “mass vaccination of the population will begin,” the mayor hopes. “This will eventually put an end to the pandemic and the problems we’re facing,” Sergei Sobyanin said.
