Infectious disease doctor Ilya Akinfiev expressed the opinion that the conditions for celebrating the New Year in Russia will depend on the number of hospitalized COVID patients. According to him, web site new restrictions will be introduced in the country in case of maximum use of the bed capacity.

“Epidemiological measures are not affected by the number of new infections,” URA.RU quotes Akinfeeva. – There is only one factor in which any changes are made – it is the number of hospitalized patients and free beds. If the bed fund is filled up to a certain percentage and difficulties begin during hospitalization of patients, then new restrictions will be introduced. They will look at this on the eve of the New Year holidays. “

He added that the November COVID vacation in the country was announced due to a sharp reduction in bed capacity.

“The authorities of Moscow and webpage many regions have now been forced to introduce non-working days, because the number of free beds has sharply decreased. In the future, I think, non-working days will not be introduced, as it is quite difficult for the economy. People will most likely be transferred to remote work, “Akinfiev added.

We will remind, earlier the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that quarantine measures would not be extended in Russia due to the coronavirus. By presidential decree, non-working days are established from October 30 to November 7. At the same time, the Kursk and Chelyabinsk regions remain on COVID holidays until November 12. Until November 14, the non-working day regime has been extended in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug.
