How Orsk lives in coronavirus quarantine

Quarantine is a common and unpleasant topic in the modern world. We've heard from previous generations about outbreaks of cholera, Spanish flu, plague, and now it's our turn to find out what it's like.  

Goals of quarantine due to coronavirus

More recently, COVID-19 has emerged overseas. It seemed that this did not concern us, because the distance is quite large, but, unfortunately, the virus has reached Orsk. It is known that the first victim was an ONOS employee. Information about the sick person and how important self-isolation is has appeared on the city's official news website. The opinions of people in the comments differ: someone mockingly claims that just one case will not play a big role, others consider quarantine to be the most humane way to avoid unpleasant consequences.

As much as I hate to admit it, quarantine is really important. The spread of the virus is accompanied by the negligent attitude of the inhabitants. If we do not want the number of cases to reach a real pandemic, then we need to think about such a concept as responsibility and a sober mind. The goals of quarantine are to protect the inhabitants of not only Orsk, but the whole country from the disease. Many may perceive such measures as a way to spread panic, rather than a great desire to protect every family.  

Coronavirus, due to which temporary self-isolation was introduced, can be inclined in different ways: either to raise controversy about why and who needs it, or use it as a fertile time for yourself and your family. Now many bloggers talk about ways of self-development not only of the physical component of ourselves, but also of the intellectual, moral, psychological spheres of life.

What is known about quarantine in Orsk due to coronavirus?

People are indignant about this, referring to the unreliability of the information. But the authorities still decided to self-isolate.

By a decree signed by Denis Pasler, a high alert regime has been declared in the Orenburg region.

The quarantine began with the closure of those events that involve the stay of 50 or more people at the same time, which began to operate from March 23. State institutions of sports and culture are temporarily closed. Also, since March 21, the activities of schools have stopped, and students have gone to distance learning. Since March 22, medical institutions have switched to a special mode of robots. The Ministry of Health claims that such measures are necessary, since a mass gathering of people can serve as a massive spread of infection.

On March 27, the Ministry of Health of the Orenburg Region published an article that indicated preventive measures in order to reduce the risk of morbidity, to which the majority of people reacted negatively. Since March 28, beauty salons and all shops except grocery stores have been massively closed, attendance at cafes, restaurants and bars has been stopped, but they have not stopped working, because food can be ordered at home. Also, the reservation of rooms and accommodation of guests in rest houses, sanatoriums, boarding houses and children's camps was suspended, which will last until June 1.

According to statistics as of April 11, 2020, in the Orenburg region, 63 people who have been diagnosed with a coronavirus infection are under the supervision of health workers, 58 are in hospital. The federal laboratory has identified Covid-19 in 25 people. This information was presented by the Minister of Health Tatiana Savinova live. During this period, 69 cases were recorded.

At this time, it is known that the self-isolation regime will be extended until April 19, and the well-known rules for staying on the street continue to apply. Shops, beauty salons and hairdressers, veterinary pharmacies and veterinary clinics, dry cleaning organizations and car services began to operate. From April 13, until further notice, it is forbidden to visit cemeteries, only burials are allowed. Students are still continuing their distance learning.

On April 11, information was posted on the city's website about who can work and who can't:

  • The work of public catering facilities is prohibited;
  • Retail establishments located in shopping and entertainment centers, malls, markets are still closed;
  • Massage and spa salons, baths and other facilities whose services require the personal presence of a person, too;
  • Libraries and museums.

Will quarantine last in Orsk?

The situation in the country is growing, which indicates a further extension of the quarantine. There is no official information about this yet. The President said that Russia will be able to overcome the virus in less than three months, despite the fact that other countries predict a long fight against COVID-19. The further development of the situation, according to him, depends on the effectiveness of the measures that are taken, and the accuracy of their observance.
