In the northern capital, the incidence of COVID-19 is growing. This state of affairs is at odds with Smolny’s reports that the epidemiological situation is under control.
Governor Alexander Beglov made the corresponding statement on Friday, during a meeting of the operational headquarters. According to the mayor, the increase in the incidence is associated with “the return of citizens after a summer vacation.” He stressed that St. Petersburg does not need new measures, and that the northern capital is ready for the worsening of the situation. In addition, Beglov advised to revaccinate.
Objective data make us doubt the statements of the head of Smolny. So, the indicators of St. Petersburg on the coronavirus began to increase in early July. Previously, no more than 300 cases were detected every day, now more than a thousand have been officially confirmed.
Thus, there is reason to believe that in fact Smolny is not in control of the situation.
