Residents of the authorities are urged not to leave the city. It is practically impossible to do this. Roads are closed.

The Russians who find themselves locked up are supported by consultants from the consulate. Those wishing to travel outside the metropolis should apply to the embassy and find out about the possibility of leaving the country.

Local authorities report that more than 5 million square meters in the city are regularly processed.

Disinfection is carried out 2 times a day: at 10 am and 4 pm. Such measures were taken in February.

It is the observance of the regime that will stop the epidemic that has broken out in the world. The authorities urge all the inhabitants of the planet to treat the introduced quarantine with due responsibility. Anyone can get infected, since no one in the world has immunity to a new disease.
