“Each sanitary doctor of the region can speak for his region, they are authorized only in their region to make decisions on strengthening measures, if they have potential threats, or they see, for example, high detection rate or population migration, then they can take measures in their region”, - said the head of the department.
According to him, now the main task of the Ministry of Healthcare is to maintain a favorable epidemiological situation.
“The situation has improved. We see a decline in the incidence rate. We all want to quickly socialize. But the coronavirus has not gone away. Lockdown is announced what is being done in our border neighbors. We must be wary that what happened in the summer or last year. It is important for us to contain this situation, to get vaccinated faster,” said Aleksey Tsoi.
