    Russia to Close Borders to Curb Coronavirus

    Russia to Close Borders to Curb Coronavirus



    3/28/20
    Russia will close all border crossings on March 30, the government said on Saturday, tightening restrictions after the country reported its biggest one-day rise in new coronavirus cases. The authorities said they so far had recorded 1,264 confirmed cases, an increase of 228 in 24 hours, and ordered that all vehicle, rail and pedestrian checkpoints, as well as the country's maritime borders, be closed from Monday. Russia has already grounded all international flights and declared next week a non-working week which does not apply to workers from key businesses like pharmacies and supermarkets in a bid to curb the spread of the virus. Moscow, Russia's worst-affected area, has shut all cafes, restaurants and shops, apart from those selling food and medicine, until April 5. Sergei Sobyanin, the capital's mayor, on Saturday urged residents to stay at home during the extended holiday that was announced by President Vladimir Putin last week.

    In a letter to users of Moscow's online portals, Sobyanin said the week-long holiday should not be treated lightly. "This is not an extra holiday, but a key measure in fighting the spread of the coronavirus," he wrote. Sobyanin warned that the week off could only help contain the outbreak if Muscovites remained home, at their apartments or dachas, their out-of-town cottages, for the next nine days. "Do not invite guests and don't be a guest yourself," he wrote. "Do not go to shops without the extreme need to do so." He also called on Muscovites to refrain from taking walks or to make only short ones, and exclusively with family members.
    They're at least a month too late for this to be effective.

    Russia coronavirus: Why does the country have fewer cases than Luxembourg? - CNN
    Russia closed the border with China in January, set up early quarantine zones, and has been testing en masse since the beginning, running "more than 156,000 coronavirus tests in total," hence the low count. In contrast, the US started testing in March.

    Because the Kremlin has been fudging the numbers.

    11 time zones wide, a 2,600 mile border with China, and only 24 COVID deaths?



    One would have to be dumber than a bag of rocks to believe that nonsense.

    Ukrainians evacuated from Vietnam broke through the cordon and fled from the airport to avoid being quarantined.

    "The Independent": "The experience of the Soviet healthcare system plays an important role in curbing the epidemic in Russia."

    It's all just trolling.

    The Communist has nothing worth reading.
