Over the past day, 5376 new cases of coronavirus infection were confirmed in Moscow, according to the capital’s operational headquarters to combat the spread of the disease.
This increase has become the largest since May 12, when 5392 new cases were recorded in the capital.
The total number of cases since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in Moscow is 367 629 people.
The imposition of severe restrictions in the capital, including a curfew or a ban on movement around the city, “is absolutely unacceptable and impossible for us,” Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said earlier on October 19. According to him, the task of the capital is to “find a middle way” between the closure of the city and the rejection of any restrictions. All measures already taken against the spread of coronavirus will be tightly and systematically controlled by the authorities, he said.
