Kaliningrad region is the top 1 in the growth rate of the number of patients with coronavirus in the North-West of the country

The coronavirus continues to sweep our planet, claiming more and more lives every day. Since March 30, a self-isolation regime has been declared in the country. Quarantine in Kaliningrad, of course, was also introduced. As of May 1, the region leads the sad ranking of the fastest growing regions of the Northwestern Federal District in terms of the number of people infected with a new coronavirus infection. We will talk more about the current state of affairs in the region in this article.

Goals of quarantine due to coronavirus

In early April, President Vladimir Putin said that the peak of the infection had not yet passed in the country. According to him, during this period, citizens need to do everything possible to make this peak as painless as possible, as well as reduce the time it takes to pass through the “plateau” - the period when the number of new infected per day remains unchanged. Reducing the growth in the number of new infections is the main goal of quarantine in the Kaliningrad region for coronavirus.

During this period, it is necessary to minimize any movement around the city, and, if possible, to exclude them altogether. Authorities recommend leaving the house no more than 2-3 times a week for food or medicine, armed with a mask and gloves. Upon returning home, you should immediately disinfect your hands with antiseptics.

What is known about quarantine in Kaliningrad due to coronavirus

As of May 1, 2020, the Kaliningrad Region is the leader in the Northwestern Federal District in terms of the overall dynamics of the growth of patients with coronavirus. Even the Leningrad region and St. Petersburg were left behind. According to the Information Center for Monitoring the Situation with Coronavirus, over the past week, the total number of infected people has increased by 2.1 times. The Kaliningrad region, which is an esclave, is on the verge of an economic disaster. The thing is that the borders of Kaliningrad intersect with Poland and Lithuania, where the inhabitants of Kaliningrad went for cheaper and better products and household chemicals. In light of the current situation in the world, these countries have closed entry for foreign citizens, and the region has become literally cut off from the rest of the world.

Educational institutions

The Governor of the Kaliningrad Region, Anton Andreevich Alikhanov, decided that educational institutions in the region continue to operate remotely, using distance learning technologies. This resolution states that quarantine in Kaliningrad schools will last until the end of the school year. Schools have been closed for quarantine in Kaliningrad for almost a month, since April 6. As for the final exams, which were postponed to a later date, they will be held in classrooms, in groups of more than ten students, and in full compliance with all measures.

Kindergartens are planning to resume their work from May 12, but in order to visit a preschool institution, the child will need to undergo a doctor's examination. Those families whose children have signs of respiratory diseases, or whose relatives arrived from abroad or other regions within a period of up to two weeks, will be denied. The Government of the region emphasized that it is not required to obtain a preliminary health certificate for a preschooler in hospitals.
