President Vladimir Putin has announced the implementation of a 10-day ‘non-working period’.
Russian President Vladimir Putin
The concern of President Vladimir Putin is increasing due to the increasing Coronavirus cases in Russia. Putin on Friday endorsed a proposal by the head of the Russian Health Watchdog to implement a ‘Non Working Period’ in May. The head of the health watchdog says that through the ‘non-working’ period, the growing cases of corona will be stopped. Let us know that Russia is also included in the top five countries affected by Corona worldwide.
Vladimir Putin said in a television meeting in response to a proposal by Rospatrebnadzor chief Anna Popova that if you think it is necessary, then let’s implement it. Today I will sign a related order. Anna Popova said that the ‘non-working’ period will apply from 1 to 11 May. This is an effort in which Russian people will get a chance to spend less time in public transport. This will also reduce their risk of getting caught in the virus.
Russia is now working on new ways to deal with Corona
In fact, in early May, a large number of Russian people go on holidays every year. On May 1, Labor Day is celebrated in Russia and on May 9, they celebrate the victory in World War II. Public holiday is on both these days. Before Putin’s announcement, May 4 to 7 were supposed to be regular working days. This step also indicates that in recent times, Russia has started working on a new approach to deal with Corona.
More than two lakh people died of corona in Russia
Most of Corona’s restrictions have been lifted across the country, and life in the capital city of Moscow is slowly returning to normal. Moscow had emerged as the epicenter of the epidemic. Instead of enforcing the lockdown, Russia has relied on using its Sputnik V vaccine to fight the corona. Russia is also among the countries worst affected by Corona. According to the Rosestat State Agency, more than 2,24,000 people have died in Russia so far.
