Due to the deterioration of the epidemiological situation in Russia, the authorities may decide to partially or completely close the borders.
“Of course, we can close the borders of Russia, we are moving towards this,” – said First Deputy Head of the Social Committee of the Federation Council Valery Ryazansky, which is quoted on October 5 by RIA Novosti. At the same time, the senator added that the general self-isolation regime will not be reintroduced, but tough restrictions for the elderly are unlikely to be avoided.
At the same time, the Operational Headquarters for Combating Coronavirus noted that they do not plan to “close the sky” and limit air traffic so far.
Experts fear that while new destinations for Russians continue to open up, such conflicting statements from the authorities could cause panic in the market and significantly limit travel demand, similar to recent rumors about a possible Turkish closure, which have not been confirmed.
Over the past day, 10,888 cases of COVID-19 have been identified in Russia in 84 regions, the headquarters reports.
Only important. For the pros only.
