CoronaVirus, Russia in lockdown.

29 Mar 2020

“We have managed to win time and slow down an explosive spread of the disease in the previous weeks, and we need to use that time reserve to the full,” Vladimir Putin said.
 The Russian president has declared that only people employed by essential sectors should work, leaving it to regional authorities to spell out the details. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin followed up by ordering Muscovites to stay home.
 Russia took early steps to counter the outbreak, closing the borders with China and then barring access to Chinese citizens in February, when China was still the world’s hottest coronavirus spot.
