This was announced on Thursday, October 21, by the deputy head for scientific work of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor, Alexander Gorelov.

In this regard, on October 20, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the introduction of non-working days in the country from October 30 to November 7 with the preservation of wages.

The Russian leader noted that, if necessary, the regions can extend the period of non-working days after November 7. He also called on the authorities of the subjects to assess the situation with the spread of coronavirus infection and, if necessary, introduce non-working days from October 23.
