But in Moscow, Mayor Sergei Sobyanin lifted restrictions on telecom companies and institutions to work remotely from 30 percent of their property, residents under 65 and people with chronic diseases to undergo local quarantine due to the improvement of the regional epidemic due to vaccinations.
The requirement to take body temperature of employees at workplaces in Moscow every four hours and at least 10 percent of the herd to be tested for Covid-19 every 15 days will also be abolished. According to Sobyanin’s blog on Friday, the number of patients treated in the capital’s hospitals has fallen by less than half compared to the second half of July, and the number of occupied beds for patients with the novel coronavirus has fallen to less than 7,000.
