Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin urged citizens to follow the instructions of doctors in the autumn, since the threat of coronavirus in the country still persists.
“It is in the autumn that seasonal illnesses begin - ARVI, influenza, therefore it is extremely important to protect yourself and your loved ones from infection,” RIA Novosti quotes Mishustin as saying.
The prime minister added that it is necessary to wear masks in public places and maintain social distance.
Earlier, the head of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, Mikhail Murashko, said that the epidemiological situation in the country is stable, but in a number of regions there is a slight increase in the incidence of COVID-19.
Recall that 5,509 new cases of coronavirus infection were detected in the Russian Federation over the past day.
